by Knighty - Competition Entry

You control two characters at once. Each character has different abilities. For example the girl, Gem, can jump high and swim in water, but has no weapons and has low health. The robot, ini, can shoot lasers, but gets damaged by water and sucks at jumping. They must work together to get though levels.

nice idea, really tough to play but very cool.
I had some graphic glitches on my machine, all the sprites had lines above them so looked very dfferent to your screenshot :)

Nice job! The graphics were glitchy, and the game could use some generous checkpointing. It's difficult to wrap my brain around using both controls at once. A Lost Vikings style toggle would be a good idea. I appreciate that you loaded so many game mechanics into it, there was a lot of variety.

Unbelievable variety here ... very well done.

Really nice... much more playable than I expected it to be for two sets of arrow keys. I like the extensive thought put into abilities and the level layout that makes you use the abilities. But damn that first jump in the last level that I did over and over and over (and had to do twice... I think. Maybe I did it wrong). Music started with the first level, then ended in about 3 seconds. Maybe just not looping?

Solid entry. If I have one minor quibble, it's that I wasn't always sure where the water was - I found it hard to distinguish from the background.

Really nicely designed both visually and in terms of gameplay.

Wow, great, really great. Hit all the right notes.

Good work!

Ha! that idea is great. Especially, since "cheating with another player" really isn't :-)

Loved it, especially the tile graphics. I did run into an issue where I got vertical and horizontal lines between all my tiles, so it looks way better in your screenshots than it did for me. The level layouts were brilliantly devious, though I would have liked some checkpointing since I died a lot.

I made another version which should fix the graphics if you get those lines. Tell me if it works (You can press F4 for full-screen if the screen is too small.)
@mpc174: There are some areas where you must control both characters at the same time, so the Lost Vikings style switching wouldn't really work.
@Hamumu: I didn't have time to make any music, you must of heard something else ^_^

Neat, very hard though. I'm really dying too easily ;)
And had the line bug as well, the fixed version worked fine though.

Great game with very nice graphics (pity about the graphics glitch) - really enjoyed it!

Didn't think controlling two characters at once would work, but amazingly it did!

The background sometimes made areas that didn't contain water look like they did, so some visual changes to fix that would be nice...

Very nice entry. Good job with the levels, they were clever. Graphics were pretty nice too. Solid game!

Very good, really enjoyed it... It's hard, but that's to be expected... Only complaint was that the sound was a bit "agressive" sounding...
