ac3raven 9 9 10 10 10 10 Solid concept that fits the theme. Good player feedback. It is a **complete** game that explores it's central mechanic in a variety of contexts, and is never made more difficult by bad design. I don't know if you intended for the first set of instructions about swapping depth to be cut off, but if you did: bravo. Having to walk off the stage to read about it is an excellent way to demonstrate the depth mechanic, and it also gives you an opportunity to explain to the player that this game will be focused on trial-and-error, and dying isn't a terrible thing. This might be the best game I have played in this Jam.

    The input response is good, although when jumping at the very edge of the platform is often doesn't jump. Fun gameplay, with well thought out levels. Simple but aesthetically pleasing art style.

    I have tried about 10 and your is the best one I have played so far :)

    Great use of the theme!

    I agree with Templar3lf. It would be nice if the platforming was a little forgiving and the foot sensor maybe had a forgiveness timer for detecting if the platform was still there. I keep getting messed up by what I would imagine is just a few milliseconds missteps.

    Really cool concept, I liked how the platforms did move slightly! I included it in part 4 of my Bacon Game Jam 09 compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :) https://youtu.be/d94r7aO8Ygg

    Great use of the theme!

  • GarbageElitist (3 years ago)

    I apologize about the platforming. The real issue is that all I'm doing is raycast in down once from the center of Grey. I should have implemented a more robust solution, but you know, game jam.

    Levels 2 and 3 were my favorite!

    What a great game for the short time frame! Level design was excellent. Would love to see a continuation of Mr. Grey's adventure.
