Hello!

Melodisle is a puzzle platformer about singing and melodies. (Download)

EDIT: Turns out Melodisle got way too cool for Dropbox and therefore my links are disabled. Here's a temporary solution. (Download)

It's the first game I've ever finished and was made for the One Game a Month February challenge.

Let me know what you think! ♪

I had a quick play and I like the general concept of using notes, though I think you should maybe cut the playable notes down a bit, maybe even right down to 4. I'd actually quite like to see pretty much all interaction done through playing notes (though maybe keep a dedicated 'examine' button), as that would give the game more of a unique feel. Movement feel pretty sluggish which is probably to be expected given the dev time.

So to sum up: gud gam concept, do want more  Hand Thumbs Up Right

Bugs/critique when you die and respawn the respawn point is sometimes a bit off and you can repeatedly fall into the water, and the note blocks that raise up don't always register when you press the note on them, you need to be bang on centre. Control in the X axis could be a bit tighter too. Also took me a few mins to realise what the 'elevator down' button was but that's no big deal.

Anyway I really really love this, it's wonderful, fantastic job! I'm totally stuck with one key left though, the bird puzzle
Tried playing corresponding notes on do re mi fa so la ti do scale to each bird but nothing, I'll keep thinking.

I can see where you're coming from, but I actually designed the game around an octave (8 notes), so any other number of playable keys just wouldn't make sense. Besides, I have a whole keyboard of buttons, why not utilise them? But thank you for your feedback Smiley

@Claw: I'm completely aware of these bugs/design flaws but didn't get around to fixing them due to time constraints/inexperience. However I did implement workarounds, such as making the player return to the start if he gets stuck in a continuous fall. And thank you as well! It's awesome to hear people I follow on the Twitter liking my game :D

Let me know if any of you finish the game! People seem to be finding it challenging (which is totally awesome!)

had a random idea and thought I'd cracked it but I was wrong.

I figure the order of the birds is what they say, like DO = 0, RE = 1, then their colour is the note, but I've tried it and no win. Also tried going up to each bird and playing their note in order of DO,RE,MI..etc

super stuck!

Wow, people are interpreting the bird puzzle in so many different ways!

It has nothing to do with the colours.

Also make sure to double-check sequences, they may not trigger properly sometimes because of a 'bug' where pressing the 'first note' of a sequence out-of-order will reset the sequence counter to 0 instead of back to 1.

I'll probably update it sometime next week, just to fix a few silly bugs that I've noticed which are easy fixes. I don't want to touch it too much.

I'm saving that for the future.

I've tried playing the birds' notes in front of them in order, reverse order, from top to bottom, bottom to top. I tried every method also making sure I played the birds' corresponding notes at the exact same time they did.

I'm runnin' out of options here.


oh god I hate birds so much I wish I can sing these birds to death

This is lovely. The little walking sounds are adorable. The mouth appearing on the back of the head if you play notes while facing away from the screen is a little weird, though.

Everyone's having difficulty on the last puzzle!

I've gone back and checked to make sure the puzzle is actually possible about 3 times. And it is. The birds are just telling you two different things.

Going to wait until someone shares a solution.
