This is incredible on all fronts! There is amazing depth to what originally looked like such a simple game, and working around the randomly generated terrain makes each play feel new and refreshing. Fantastic job!

Nice entry, a bit hard at first but good to play. Please next time stop the timer while you're in the shop :)

Why no Craftstudio? Just kidding. Excellent game! Good difficulty, nice graphics, fitting music.
Hard to find anything bad about it, only thing was that the shop didn't work on my first try, don't know if it was a bug or just me doing something wrong.
If it was my type of game I might even pay for it!

Awesome sprites man! Great aesthetics, sound and awesome game feel owo It makes you want to keep playing. And playing with a gamepad is even better! Really cool overall.

Great entry. The best one I've seen so far.
The only criticism I have is that the controls feel a bit too floaty. I guess the upgrades help with that.
Other than that, absolutely top-notch.

Hey Sparkin' team, didn't know you were doing the Jam! Good game, I had fun playing with it!

Rozaxe says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 6:30pm

Cool entry ! Music is funny and graphics very polish.
But I think the tool range is too short...

Falling in water makes the game incredibly hard but man, this is super fun and incredibly polished. Amazing work!

Fantastic game, I really enjoy it.

I also really suck at it, but that's beside the point. xD

One of the few I gave 5 stars on everything.

Wertle says ...

I super liked this game. It's very polished and made me happy. The digging and luring mechanic was really inventive and fun. The biggest problems I had were

1)it was sometimes really hard to tell whether an enemy would fall into a hole or not (as the movement trajectory was a little hard to see).
2)having a cursor range for when the drill would work was confusing. It was difficult to understand when my cursor was out of range.


Dec 10, 2014 @ 4:05am

Lovely lovely work you guys <3 As usual!

gillenew says ...

Very nice I love it, 7/7 for me :)

OttersDen says ...
Dec 10, 2014 @ 11:19am

This is super awesome! I just keep on playing. One note though, I think falling into the ice is very unforgiving. Maybe it should make you lose one point of health, rather than make you lose.

Still, the quality of this game is astounding! Well done!

Dec 10, 2014 @ 11:21am

Awesome Game!, love the art style and gameplay

pk says ...

Good in all aspects. A fun little game.

Awesome game!

Dec 10, 2014 @ 11:41am

Aiming to dig is sometimes randomly hard, and there could be a better feedback of when I'm actually digging or not.

Graphics look like a filtered SNES game, but are really cohesive and nice to look at.

Music is also wonderful, and really gets you in the happy mood the game attempts.

Nice work!

Liam :D says ...
Dec 10, 2014 @ 11:42am

Heh, one of those games where I completely forgot it was made for LD and that I'll have to give it a score at some point. I just continued to play it :D Can't think of a higher commendation than that, really.

Awesome, the movement drives me crazy, but is still a pretty funny game. Great!

Fantastic entry, polished, no bugs that I could find, graphics were great, music was spot on, concept amazing - Super Bomberman meets pokemon!

Dec 10, 2014 @ 12:14pm

Awesome entry! Very polished in all aspects, great graphics and sound (not sure why you dont allow us to vote there), its funny and moody and fits the theme well. Mechanics are not ultra-original but are quite different and enjoyable.

Only I disliked are the early controls, but i understand it is intentional and you can improve them in shop ( still i dont like the idea of "buying" better controls :P)

Elisée says ...
Dec 10, 2014 @ 12:22pm

Thanks everyone for the kind comments and feedback so far :).

@Managore There are actually just 5 different maps, no random generation there.

@spitfire87 We didn't create any of the sounds or music ourselves (see "Sound credits" link) so we thought it didn't make sense to be rated on it.

love the artstyle, very nice pixels :)

deepnight says ...
Dec 10, 2014 @ 12:29pm

A very fun and polished entry :) The digging controls are a bit imprecise thought. A basic fix would be to increase the digging range of +1.

Very good job!

Nice graphics and solid gameplay! Liked it a lot! It didn't work on Safari though, had to switch to Chrome to play it.

Fun and simple game. Neat graphics, awesome gameplay.
I love it.

bitserum says ...
Dec 10, 2014 @ 2:10pm

Amazing and really addictive. I'm finally giving up after reaching wave 5 it gets too hard for me.

Tuism says ...
Dec 10, 2014 @ 2:52pm

Really good :) Unbelievable amount of polish in everything. Like really.

The only criticism I might have of the design is your one fall into the water means you're back right at the start. That's REALLY HARSH, which is probably a conscious design decision, but that makes me basically ignore a huge part of the game design - jumping, because I don't wanna risk it. I see the movement accuracy upgrade... I would perhaps have changed it to "air speed" or something so you don't fly too fast while in the air.

Really good, well done :)

The only reason I might not run into a wall in shame is that this is a jam and not a compo entry :P Ok kidding :P

One of the best games I've played so far from this LD31. Digging holes and punching enemies into those holes... amazing!

TZeroth says ...
Dec 10, 2014 @ 3:21pm

It's an awesome entry. Mostly near perfection. If anything could be added, I'd like a score, and maybe leaderboards. :B
But it's awesome anyway.

Great game! A little hard to start out, but once you figure it out it's really interesting and challenging.

Classic but fun and efficient nonetheless. Outstanding graphics for a jam. Great job :D

Snicklodocus says ...
Dec 11, 2014 @ 12:16am

Great game! Absolutely love the art. The mechanics are a nice twist on this type of game and having a random map keeps things fresh. My biggest complaint is that digging controls are sometimes unreliable. The game also took a long time to load - I thought something was wrong since there wasn't a loading bar. But overall, really loved it.

ViKing Games says ...
Dec 11, 2014 @ 2:17am

Great gameplay and replay value, I love the shop system and random terrain! Pixel-boy's graphics are fantastic as usual, and I'm even more excited for Superpowers than I was before. Good work!

flyingbear says ...
Dec 11, 2014 @ 3:49am

Those graphics! THOSE GRAPHICS! How much appeal can you pack on a single screen? I dug the music too. Gameplay was solid, though I had a lot of trouble not falling into the water...

andrewkennedy says ...

Ahhh wave 4 started to get serious!

Really fun game. Loved everything about it. The music was really fitting, and the mechanics were well polished.

Such a great, polished, addictive entry. Loved the art and music and ate away a lot more time then I'd expected playing it.

Wow, this game is so cute and polished. Very impressive.

I wish I didn't die when I fall into the water, that's really annoying.

Well done!

I love it so much I will come back and play more later.
I cant say anything more, its awesome!

"having a cursor range for when the drill would work was confusing. It was difficult to understand when my cursor was out of range." I agree with that.

Flawless presentation. The controls are a bit difficult, but honestly it feels very fun. Good job!

Gorgeous looking game! The learning curve with the controls is quite high but it's a fun wee game that's infinitely charming. Everything is so cute. ;_;

Amazing game, top entry here. One of the best of LD31 imo.
Cool, original gameplay, nice sounds, beautiful graphics, very polished.

SoulGame says ...
Dec 15, 2014 @ 12:39pm

Perfect graphics ! Global mood is really good, I also loved the centered shop to go with the theme. Even the "dig ice" mechanic is interesting, nice job here.

Mechamew says ...
Dec 15, 2014 @ 1:34pm

Great, great game! So much to admire here! Good use of theme, great mechanic and (best element of all in my books) this game looks fantastic.

I found the controls quite clunky and from time to time completely unresponsive. Otherwise, this seems very well finished. I'd play the hell out of a game like this on my DS!

I should also mention I'm very happy to hear about Superpowers! Will follow progress on that with great interest!
