Hey thanks for the feedback guys
The pillars that pop out of the ground to block your way are really dark and hard to notice.
I died on the first part with the walls opening up because I hit the side of the wall. Why does the player die like this? He should only die if he is trapped between the wall and the edge of the screen.
It could use some more gameplay elements, but I understand you're trying to keep it simple, so ..
I've uploaded the latest version of the game which replaced the old pillars and hopefully has made it clearer.
The opening walls have now been fixed to open up automatically so hopefully that fixes the getting trapped issue.
Would love to add more gameplay elements but really just wanted to complete a basic short game for my first(although this has still taken me ages to make).
Sort of reminds me of Canabalt. However, I do think the generation of the levels needs a bit more work. Sometimes, I would come to a situation where it was impossible for me to jump. Also, the art style seems to clash between pixelated, realistic and cartoony. I think you if you just stick to one style and vibe on it, you end result would be more pleasing aesthetically.
Definite Canabalt influence here, was just trying to make something simple for my first game. There is a moment where you come to a final high platform and from that one you have to jump at the last moment and reach the one in the ceiling with the rungs. Then you'll climb along and fall onto the following platform. Also been trying to make the art style more cohesive, so hopefully it works better with the latest version.
Loving the new background! looks awesome. Im a little confused, i kept running and jumping and shooting the flying thing, caught it then everything ended. is that supposed to happen.
Thanks, really happy you like the new background. Was hoping people would like it. Also that is the ending for the moment. Haven't really thought of a proper ending yet so that's it for now. But I know it's very abrupt and really needs something.
Thanks again for all the feedback and messages guys
Really helps with the motivation to finish this project. Have uploaded the latest version of the game with all the devlog updates till now incorporated.
