Sidescroller Evolution - Kassoon - Jam Entry

This Ludum Dare I mainly felt like drawing, so I did.


The first time through is for real, then it's all bonus and forever.

Quite a bit too long levels compared to how repetitive they get. Make the levels shorter, so that one failure does not equate to a lot of repetition. Stopped at the flying level due to a collision a long way in. Did not feel like doing all of that all over again.

Other than that: Great mood and music. Really soothing.

Some check points would be nice. Remember we didn't spend an entire weekend making an mastering the controls.

quite depressing thanks to the music, the ambiance is very neat. I have nothing more to say than what was said up there.
Nice job :D

Really cool chilled out game! The "painted" style graphics blew me away, and the music was nice. The only recommendation I have is to have way points so you don't have to start right from the beginning.

The game was cool, and the music sounded very nice. I thought the fox growing wings was funny. Checkpoints would be nice even though I only died on the first level.

Best game I tried so far. Loved the music, the mecanics, it's fun and goes so well with the theme! :)

The background music is really wonderful, I liked the Zen autoscrolling first level.

The second part was a little harder with dodgy collision detection for enemies, but good show all around!

@TinyHat - your comment got me out of my post-LD funk, so thanks a lot for that

Lovely presentation!

Not sure climbing obstacles works gameplay-wise. The character just stops, so it's not really a choice or any difficult.

Very nice! I liked the graphics, music, mood. The controls are very good. I couldn't reach the end. I stopped at the part with wings and three lives. Maybe I'll try again later.

Nice mood :) The first part gets a little long, though.

Really nice game, nice music, graphics, and great mood !
That little fox is really sweet. Sometimes you wonder how those dogs get stuck on these platforms :)
What a nice surprise when you do that final jump on level 2 and the fox suddenly grows wings and starts to fly !
That's just a very tiny detail, but I would find it a lot more comfortable if you could control the character with with the arrow keys instead of A & D. It was a little tiring for the hand.
Great job !

What a fun little game! One of the best I have played/rated. Graphics are great, liked the music. The controls were easy and responsive, nice atmosphere. Yes, a few more checkpoints would have been good, but hey you did fantastic for only 72hrs. Great job!!!!!

As @Materie said, make levels shorter, the graphics and audio are brilliant.

Beautiful game. The music works really well and the art is great.
The first level is my favourite. The flying level is nice for the mood, but you don't have to do much to beat it, just stay at the top.
