Looks interesting but I can't really play it. Both the download and web versions don't seem to be work. In no stage did "Q-E" change what character I had selected, so stage 4 seemed impossible.

Funky and gunky.

Played until level 4, where there is one only blue but unreachable jump.

the blue one can use acceleration (pushing enter) and it increased Y velosity when jump. You can run and jump straigth under lava

Cool idea, but the controls felt a bit weird and I couldn't get past level 4.

Heh, these creatures are adorably ugly :-)

You had a very nice idea - the responsiveness of the controls could use a bit of work, but I think you are on the right path!

Also, there is a "bug" in the game: when you die, you get stuck and cannot restart. It would be nice if dying brought you back to the title screen, or a level selection screen.

I got stuck on the second level with the three Snobits, where blue just can't reach AND break the "cell" where green is locked.

I got stuck at level 4 too. Really creative idea though, and lots of fun. Love the looks of the characters

Looks interesting, but I don't get the controls.

Didn't particularly enjoy this one. I think it was mostly the bubble mechanic that killed it for me, it was just too difficult to control accurately.

I won! The game brought back pleasant memories of DOS gaming era, particularly Lost Vikings and Lemmings. Though bubble guy's ability becomes pretty much useless when you control more than one dude, since you can bootstrap them across any height and distance: <a href="http://imgur.com/WKgSaRj">http://imgur.com/WKgSaRj</a> Just make them stand on each other and jump with the lowest snobit, and avot: grafity defied.

Great concept, control is still a but sluggish but is a very nice 48hr prototype.

Apr 30, 2013 @ 6:17pm

Really liked the concept. Good job, man :)

Very nice concept, it looks like you really thought about the puzzles, good job :.

I really dig the "Lost Vikings" vibe of this game, but the controls need some tweaking for the game to be fully enjoyable.

Also, I think it doesn't fully embrace the theme, having to control up to 3 characters - it seems more old-school than minimalist to me.

Congratulations! :)

interesting concept, but I just couldn't get past the controls. It was a lot of effort just trying to figure out how to work it.

Controls are a bit wierd, but the snobits are nicely designed!

Fun game but I got stuck on the level where I was supposed to go up in the top middle bit. I'm not sure, I think it had to do with the bubbles but I couldn't quite get it :x

Hegemege says ...

Sometimes the bubbles would escape from under the dudes feet and rise in the air, thus making it kinda frustrating at times :P

Cool concept though, but felt a bit glitchy at times. Controls were fine in my opinion. Nice graphics too, those small feet :)

Fisrt of all: Thank you for commenting on my game! :3

The bubble guy was kind of frustrating and I didn't finish the game, but the levels were well designed around their abilities and that is awesome. And the little... snobits are so ugly I can't help but like them.

I ended up giving up in the 2nd level as I couldn't understand how the bubbles worked. Sometimes they were solid and sometimes they were not...

Fun game, but I didn't understand the instructions so it took me a bit to figure it out. Sounds could have been a bit more subtle. Q-E didn't really do anything for me. And the up arrow didn't jump. I had a hard time with the bubble.

Love these lil creatures! Really fun and wild.

Fun little game with cutesy aesthetics. Mechanics are simple enough to go well with the theme.
