Really fun two player fighting game! The artwork is great and the music really fits the frantic nature of the combat. The characters move super fast and it's sometimes funny to accidentally jump out of bounds or walk off the screen only to die immediately. I like the arena changing mechanic and how it just drops you immediately into a potentially dangerous pitfall if you're not fast on the double jump to escape. Very cool stuff, well done!

Impressive animations and overall realization. Kicking the opponent into the pit is really fun and the feeling of power is very well implemented! I'll save it for further matches with colleague :)

Awesome visuals, and game concept. I liked the brawler theme however the combat was a bit dull, there wasn't any combo system nor any more moves apart from the lightsaber and kicking. However on the brightside this game has potential with a bit more polish on the mechanics, the visuals are stunning good entry!

Awesome!

Visuals and Animations are very good! Really Interesting, but I wish it had and AI I could play against!

Audio and graphics are really awesome. I like how the stage changes as you go on. The controls are a bit tough at the beginning because the characters move very fast, but it's just a matter of getting used to them I guess. I wish the game had a single player mode.

the art is fantastic. the controls were a little rough at the beginning, like i felt the jump was stunted because the double jump sometimes didn't seem to work... i don't know, could be that the movement was so fast it took longer to get used to everything

I like the concept of the joint progression meter a lot. The execution was a little rough but I think there are fun concepts worth exploring here. A minor note, it would be nice if you were using the controller if the other person could use the wasd controls instead of the cramped numpad controls. I appreciate that you didn't count self-deaths, as there were many. Many many. The feedback on the kick was my favorite, I think it was the most enjoyable to use because of the animations and nice impact sound. The sword attack was pretty hard to hit with, a wider hitbox might be worth trying so you get more actual combat instead of flailing and self-deaths. Nice work!

It is really hard to control yourself, mainly in the icy parts and small platforms.

The kick animation is really good, but the sword attack is a bit more stale, keep in mind the action line when animating.

It is a really nice mechanic kicking the other player off a platform. Good job!

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
