Nice Entry, I love the art style and the dynamic lighting effects! The gameplay feels nice too. The music is quite entertaining, what did you use to create it?

2 quick typos in the instructions: "Emeral block" and "Buby block". Good game though.

Really cool entry, graphics and audio is great.
Only criticism: I felt like I could get into a game state that left the game unwinnable where I'm not able to reach the yellow bricks up top due to poor drilling on my part and unfortunate placement of blocks.

This is really good. the drilling animation is adorable. sound design and visuals are nice and go together well. wrapping screen is cool. I dislike the inertia on the character, otherwise the control feels good. You just need to have better higher acceleration to a limit

Good graphics but I can't figure out what the hell I'm actually doing or why I'm doing it.

Super sweet animations! The artstyle overall is great. Runs a bit slow on my machine though :(

Great concept.
Cool game, nicely polished gameplay. Art and animations are wicked.

One time, I didn't have luck, got stuck from the start:

sputnik says ...
Dec 10, 2014 @ 5:27pm

gre: you were not stuck, you have to discover the secret feature!! the screen warp up and down, left and right. (I guest it's not a secret feature no more...)

J'adore ton jeu (surtout la musique ^^)! Je trouve que tu as très bien utilisé le thème au profit du gameplay et ça feel good en tas ! Btw, est-ce que ton personnage est un cosmonaute inter-cubique ? lol

sputnik says ...
Dec 10, 2014 @ 7:22pm

rayman1900: J'ai aucune idée de ce qu'est mon personnage. C'est vraiment la premier chose que j'ai dessinée, sans filtre... :)

Nice and fluid gameplay! Spikes are very dangerous and kinda hard to avoid :). Great work!
Level: 5, Score: 3320.

Thanks for your comments! In my post compo version, there is some visual queue for spiked block... more to come.. One of my students make it through lvl 18... he's better than me at my own game :(

Fantastic game! Very polished given the amount of time, hope you plan on continued development :)

Awesome entry. The game is well flushed out, I can't believe that it even has save and load game. The art also is very impressive (props to the jumping animations particles) The screen wrapping on all sides was also a nice idea.

Runs a bit laggy on my laptop but I could see this game having a lot of depth. The simplicity of the controls does a good job of making it accessible while still offering lots of possibilities in gameplay, just like classic arcade games. I'd say for 48 hours you successfully pulled off your arcade feel ;D Nicely done!

Wow, really solid title, man! Clever use of the block-smashing idea.

I also liked how you introduced time pressure later in the game, but only after I had a chance to learn the rules. That's a nice design touch.

Dec 11, 2014 @ 6:12am

Nice art style, nice gameplay.

Excellent polished presentation all round with nice graphics and music. I like the animations of the driller guy. Solid gameplay idea too. Nice work all round really.

Wow this is pretty, I died when I dug a goldblock and there were spikes in it haha. A 5 in humor :P

Nice idea, lovely style. Well done!

Great entry. It was strategic, fun, and challenging without being frustrating. The audio and visuals worked great and blended nicely together. Definitely one of my favorites this LD.

Dec 16, 2014 @ 3:36pm

Fun game, a bit hard to control. The character animations are pretty. Well done!
