Well, the graphics were nice and the result is quite impressive given the fact that you are 10, I certainly was not able to do something similar when I was. There is one flaw though: I had no idea what to do, to be honest. I pressed one of the buttons on the floor and once got a basketball which I threw against the painting, but in the next round, the same button gave me a game over. It's a little confusing.

Hey Syrapt0r, Game_Coder28's Dad here,

Firstly, thank you so much for commenting and secondly, probably, more importantly – a huge thank you for taking the time to download and play Game_Coder28's Game! To say he was excited it a bit of an understatement (it was the first thing he told me as I came in from work).

Slight apologies for the tone of his reply (he was trying to be helpful and give a clue without revealing too much!)

We chatted a lot before Game_Coder28 made the game, and we did discuss the need for instructions, but he was adamant that he wanted the game and puzzles to be self-revealing. So, not wanting to kerb his enthusiasm (and to be honest, to get him to learn from it) – I decided not to press the point and he designed the game totally as he envisioned it.

We chatted again tonight, especially after your comment above – and he's in full agreement that he needs to look again at the game (he's excited as he gets to do a v1.1) and either needs to add instructions around the gameplay or somehow make it a lot more totally obvious as to what a player is meant to do, that or revise the gameplay a bit.

Again, though, thank you so much for taking the time to download and play Game_Coder28's game – means a lot to him and he's completely pumped to have someone play his game. If anything your feedback has resolved his spirit to make a better version of the game, thank you!

Let's see what happens for LD38!

Cheers,
Game_Coder28's Dad.

Certainly a lot better than anything I did when I was 10! Well done. Not a super engaging game, but look at you building and launching a multi-platform game! Keep at it, building games is tough but worth it.

Really confusing. I got to the ball shooting at the painting. I couldn't figure out what to do next. I like the idea though.
