Cheese It!

by sebasRez - Jam Entry

Cheese it! You will pay the ultimate price!

A and D or <- -> to move left and right
W and S or ^ v to move Up and Down
E to grab
Space to Jump

You are a thief, it's what you're good at, but you messed with the wrong set of mice and they want their cheese back. If you don't provide with the cheese then your ten seconds are up.

Run through hellish kitchen scavenging for leftover pieces of cheese and bring it back to the evil masterminds.

Woo! First Ludum Dare! Game made by @Sebasrez and @_MyTmonkey with music by @rockman!

I like the graphics! Especially the background graffiti and the speech balloons are nices touches.

The simple tutorial is cool. You only have 4 keys in total which could be easily explained with static text, but you guys decided to walk the extra mile :)

The gameplay is fun, but gets repetitive pretty fast - especially because you are just running the same way over and over again! Or am I missing something?

The ingame music is nice and fits the general mood quite well.

The game over screen music doesn't fit at all, but I like the quite visual depication of how much cheese I stole! :D

Is there any specific reason why you deactivated fullscreen? If I play a game, I want it to fill my screen, and that's usually so easy with Unity.

I think your main "screenshot" could benefit from a better picture - maybe a clipping of an ingame screenshot? Right now it doesn't live up to the ingame quality.

All in all a pretty nice game! Good job!

PS: I exploded right in their den! Joke's on them!

Pretty solid entry. Kind of uninspired use of the theme, but that's OK in my book. The gameplay itself was lackluster however. It would have been better if I were forced to make some interesting trade offs when choosing paths. Perhaps adding the ability to carry more than one piece of cheese at once, have different size cheeses which affect movement speed, climbing ability, jumping, etc. would make for deeper more rewarding gameplay.

Lovely art and personality in this game, I had a good laugh at some parts and the gameover. I like the wall run, worked well. I have to agree, carrying the cheese one at a time got a little tedious. Maybe also have various drop-off areas? Overall, great work!

I really enjoyed the animations and the music; the animations are really smooth. Even though simple, the dialog balloons also have a really good touch. I just do not like very much all the go-further-and-back cheese trips because things get repetitive that way, which are essential in the game, I'm afraid. Maybe if you had more dropzones in order to repeat less?

:) I nice twist. I like the game concept a lot. Fun game.

I like they way you intro'd movement and the core loop. Enjoyable but I don't think the design was helped by the time limit implementation. Good work!

Haha, a really cute and awesome game, those graphics are really sweet as well,
The game-play was perhaps a bit repetitive, but I thoroughly enjoyed it!

The graphics are fantastic, I love the rodent animations. It does get a little tedious after a while. The ability to throw cheese would be nice, or to carry multiple pieces, as a power up to find. Very nice presentation!

It would have been great to have more mice spread through the level. Liked the old school level design, reminded me of a lot of SNES platformers. (Also killed by a giant cat is the best way to die :3 )

Good entry - love anything cheese themed!

Graphics are great and it felt very polished

Game play pretty straightforward

Would be good if you could carry multiple cheeses

Really nice game, well rounded on all fronts.

The 'Banksy' rat cover art doesn't do it much justice though I think.
