I've tested the game! (Windows version): good puzzle design, clear graphics, and good control. The zoom option is very useful.

My only criticism: start the level from the beginning when something kills you it's very frustrating, specially when you need to get one card more and a robot appears out of nowhere and kills you xD, maybe some checkpoints when you get a card will be fine.

Good job, keep up the good work! Smiley

Hi there! I'm the coder at T-Rex Interactive.

@karlozalb
Thanks for good words Smiley We were thinking about adding quicksave option, so I will implement it sooner or later. We like saves more then checkpoints, cause it's not hard to block your path in BKA. We don't want players to get to checkpoint and realize that they have to restart level, cause they can't continue, and they made that  crucial mistake seconds before getting the checkpoint. Quicksaves gives players more control over when to save. Most likely we will limit how many quicksaves player have, so it will ease some frustration but still leaving some degree of challenge.

Tested the windows version, really liked it!

The only thing I would like to see is an option to play it in windowed mode, so I can switch between fullscreen and windowed Smiley.
The quicksaves idea sounds great to me, limiting the amount of quicksaves would be good.

You've done a great job, keep it up!

Haha, it's month since last post and it's not that we were on holidays Smiley

Quicksave feature is done and will be available in next demo build. It was not difficult to do, simply took a lot of time to implement (just like pause system). I had problems only with laser beams, as I had to make it 2-way queue instead of 1-way.
I created doors, conveyor belts and fans. There are still some minor bugs to fix, but this objects are fully functional.

Hi :-)
This is a new artwork for the Box Kid Adventures.
It's composed of enemies and objects from our game.



It's 1080p so it can be used as a wallpaper.

I looked at the title, and thought "well, this is obviously going to be a crate-pushing puzzle game." Then I opened the thread, and I was like "oh, it's not?! The kid is just made of out boxes!"

...Then I saw that it was a crate pushing puzzle game afterall. Made me laugh. X'D
It looks good, though. And box-puzzles are awesome! Are you a Boxyboy fan, too?

=D

Man, I really like the music in the teaser. It's so simply and just super goofy. It's pretty funny actually. Not sure if that was what you were going for but its working well.
