Took the game for a spin this morning. Chuffed to see the eggs in there. Looks like progress to me.

Just thought I'd give my final (promise) suggestion : As the level stands now I think you should lamp a door onto the toppermost platform. When the player reaches it they get transported to the beginning of the level again. Each time they get transported a couple of things in the level change. New platform, new baddie, babies falling in the background, platform moved/removed, sweets falling in the background etc... you could even change the player sprite, this way each level reveals the historic progress of the games' development.

I think this might cut the work load down for you because this way you can add content, as it comes in, by just creating another slightly incremented level.

Just an idea...

The incremental thing is a cool suggestion. I don't think you need to make it the only level in the game, though, since with the collision map method it's very easy to make more levels.

Another feedback-y suggestion: You should make it so that the player can jump while walking down slopes, and perhaps give him a few frames of forgiveness after you step off a platform. This would make the planet level a lot less frustrating.
You could also increase his horizontal jump distance and decrease the jump height a bit, I think this would make the jumping feel a lot better.

I love the turtles, by the way.

It took some messy code, but walking down slopes and a 5 frame leeway are now in!
Tell me if thats enough leeway. I also fixed the order of the levels so it gos back and forth appropriately.

A thing you probably didn't know: The turtles can kill enemies for you!
I made left and right arrows debug keys for getting eggs and spawning turtles, so use those if you can't get a turtle to walk into an enemy.

Hmm...

You should add moving platforms.

I'll try. It'll probably end up horribly broken.

EDIT: worked out better than I thought!

The new level looks nice, but it's very frustrating. The enemies spawn so fast and unpredictably that they're sometimes almost impossible to avoid. Also, there seem to be a lot of things that are off the edge of the screen - maybe my resolution is too low?

I hope that post didn't sound like too much whinging, so here is a rotating face:

He should float slowly toward the player. When he gets shot he should look like this:

And fall off the screen. But if he gets close to the player he won't do any damage, he will just sit still until the player moves away. And then he will look like this:

The enemy spawners are destroyable. I Put them on a timer now, tell me if thats better.
The screen is probably too big because I doubled the resolution of the game. At it's doubled size, it's 1280x960.
I reset the resolution to normal. You can press F4 for fullscreen, or resize the window yourself as you please. Enter will reset the window back to normal.
I messed around a bit with what the face does, but it still does everything you told me to make it do. I only put them in your level, since they're both your creations. They fit better there anyways, with they're roundness.
I changed level 1 so you can't skip everything, although it's not really harder. Level 2 is actually easier now.

The first two frames are for him just floating.  If you walk up to him he says the first talkie bubble.

If you walk up to him with the extra head, he smiles and says the second talkie bubble then floats up and out of the screen.

(It's supposed to look like he has hiccups)
  


It's 2am and the idea of a hiccupping genie that wants a human head is hilarious to me

Could you upload a quieter version? That is way too loud!

EDIT: Actually, I just made a remix of your song and put in the game. Them I added a filter which makes it sound even better!*

*But it also sounds completely different.

No, it's fine. nothing wrong with a challenge! I just thought it was funny how much code it took to make him.

Yep, it's all your fault. I hate you now. Also your level is too big.  Tongue
