Fala Hericson e Rodrigo! Certinho? Muito criativo o game! Me lembrou a jogabilidade do Super Meat Boy, mas o intuito é diferente! Tem que alternar entre as formas de movimentação, ataque e defesa no momento certo. Os gráficos estão bem bacanas e o som também. É um game de escopo bem grande, pois exige muito level design que em certo momentos obrigue o jogador a usar uma forma correta para poder prosseguir. O game atual possibilita o jogador simplesmente ignorar os desafios devido à grande mobilidade do personagem. Não estou dizendo para retirar isso. A movimentação está boa! Meio travada nas paredes. Acho que poderia ser possível ele escorregar lentamente pelas paredes ou então usa-la para pular ainda mais alto. Ao mesmo tempo tentem incluir puzzles que exijam do jogador velocidade na mudança de forma. Tem muitas teclas que dificultam esse processo, são muitas opções! Então torne o processo mais simples, talvez arrastando o mouse em direçoes diferentes para realizar a mudança. Aí em um pulo longo o jogador poderia passar em 3 buracos com formatos diferentes, exigindo a mudança de forma.
Bom espero ter ajudado!
Abraço!

Very cool game you got there! Good job guys, the level design is really well done, i just think you should facilitate a little more the things and commands for the player at start of the level, like introdcting each mechanic of the game along the progress of the level, because making the player already knows everything at the beggining already can make the player a little lost at commands output there! But for this gamejam is a really well done game and mechanic, hope you can work more into it, and that you can put some sounds too to help with the feedback!

Nice job! This has a similar mechanic to my LD34 entry, the growing and shrinking ball. Enjoyed the level design but like others have said maybe next time introduce things in stages!

Good work! The platforming is a bit hard / unresponsive, tho.
The music is great!

Mini Submission FAQ

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

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 at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

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.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
