Good Platformer and amazing Sprites and Tiles. But I don't get, how you interpreted the Theme...

It was supposed to be hooking into the fact that they were tiny animals but I'm not sure that came across as well as we hoped.

Very nice graphics and animations but it seems the game is really really short ?

Apr 24, 2012 @ 11:52pm

Awesome graphics! But when I jump in the cave by the injured animal, I warp to a dark version of level 1

Thanks for the positive comments. As for the shortness of the game we are having some problems with our data assets (level data). Trying to fix it before to many people vote. Other than that the game is repetitively feature complete. :)

The sprites and the music are great!
Too bad that you guys couldn't completed.
I think you should finish this, I think there is a lot of potential! :)

The graphical style is great, and I love the music as it fits with the level as well. Very reminiscent of the platformers of the 90s.

A cool 90's vibe here ! Nice graphics and nice game in general. But yes, it's hard to see the link with a theme. I also feel that the control scheme is a little bit weird. You still managed to make a nice entry

While searching for shoot key i found 'T'. What does T do?
Great graphics

"T"? Interesting. I didn't put any "T" in. I'll check it out.

Should have instructions in the game or some tutorial. Nice graphics although dying in mid air is a little bit weird. Appreciate there being music too!

The graphical style and the music are decent. The gameplay needs a bit of work.

Some issues I encountered:

If ammo is going to be limited, there needs to be frequent ammo refills, at least in the first level.

If I die and go back to the beginning of the level (which takes exactly one hit), the ammo doesn't reset.

The crawly enemies on the ground are unreachable as I cannot duck.

An opening screen with some expository text might have been helpful.

Nice platformer. Failed to see the link with the theme though. A good entry anyway. Kudos!

Very cute platformer. Loved the graphics and mood, and also the colors of the areas where earth meets water. Very cool.

Thank you. I worked with some talented artists.
Unfortunately, the game isn't as complete as we would have liked, but we are determined to finish it. :)

If anything we are more ready for next time!

Very pretty, annoyingly difficult, didn't like limited darts, was somewhat fun.

May 13, 2012 @ 10:32pm

Lovely sound and graphics, but the gameplay kind of lets it down.

This game had good graphic and easy game play. I felt like there was a lot of jumping and I got confused with an injured animal who asked me to dig. I couldn't figure that one out.

Rad 90s vibe on the music... and the characters are VERY interesting. This should be expanded upon and fleshed out. Could be a very solid platformer with some tweaks.

Nice graphics, animation, and music! The gameplay was a little stiff and the deaths pretty punishing. I didn't understand why I seemed to die (?) when I got the key, or how to dig through dirt with the mole power? I guess I'm just encountering unfinished bits...

Cool graphics and music, weird key layout. I felt I was playing Dance Dance Revolution with my hands. I don't think it has much to do with the theme, but I had a good time with it. How were you supposed to kill the red snake?

The graphics and sound were great. The unfinished bits were kind of interesting, it almost gave it this post-modern feel.

Xam says ...
May 14, 2012 @ 12:35am

Thanks all! For the snake, try standing on the lowered platform just near it and shooting. ;)

Your darts don't reset when you die but the enemies do.
