Submitted2 years 9 months ago

Description

Let’s go back to stone age where the early man used just one weapon to survive. 'The Only Tool' is a strategy game that is focusing on tactical movement around small map to gather food for gaining energy, use energy to hunt animals and fetch wood to build shelter. Each move costs, plan your moves to survive.

Thank you Sujith Anudeep Ramya for helping me in the game art.

fragileteeth 7 3 6 7 5 5 7 Interesting puzzle game. Wish there was a bit of a smoother intro to the puzzle solving mindset of this game rather than full immersion into a more difficult scenario.

ThunderousEcho 7 4 7 9 1 6 6 Overly difficult, low-res graphics, okay music, odd controls, but is still stimulating. I think you have potential.

fil089 (Filipe Costa) 8 4 5 4 3 8 7 I liked your game, but I felt like it had too little to show. Only one puzzle, a single way of solve it and... That's it. I really wanted more, but you have something solid here. Some times too much precision hurts player interaction. Give the player some fallback room for they to figure out a way of trying saving themselves from little mistakes. That gives players the relief of coming out of a sticky situation because they can realize they made a mistake and work a way out of it. Keep working on it and you may come out with something more consistent. Instead of focusing on making a very tight puzzle, try making a few puzzles with interesting solutions but some wiggle room for the player to toy with.

    I do agree that choosing key controls was a wrong thing, which I realised towards the end.

    Upon first looks it looks deceptively easy. Then one realizes that this is indeed a tightly designed puzzle. Fiendishly difficult.

    Good start! I included it in my Bacon Game Jam 10 compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :) https://youtu.be/J6a2kXbBxRo

    It's only sad that you managed to make only on puzzle with. Regardless of that, this is a good idea of a game but I would really like it to have mouse controls through out. Great idea, good puzzle, but I sadly wanted more.
