The graphics are charming and the gameplay is like a powered up Frogger. It's easy to start playing and the difficulty spike is easy to manage.

The homemade audio is lovely, but the volume is too high.

That was pretty funny. The game play felt a little slow maybe a touch more speed on the main character, not much.

I don't see the connection to the theme, but it is a neat game nonetheless. I liked the music especially.

Making me start again from level 8 seems a bit harsh, but otherwise it was great. Good introduction of mechanics and quite fun

Pretty fun game. My first impression was that the controls were a little bit awkward, but as I played through the later levels it began to make more sense.

My favorite part was the audio, especially the music, although the "Froggy escaped!" sound got a little bit irritating after hearing it 12 times :P

The progression of levels was good, although I would have liked to see the speed power up appear later. I'm assuming time was the issue there.

A very specific issue I had with the game was the yellowish turrets combined with the spikes on the 7th level. I found this obstacle very frustrating, but this could be because I only rarely play games where this kind of patient waiting and observation of patterns is important.

Overall, this game has a lot of charm, and the gameplay is quite fun.

Good work!

(PS. I'm sorry if the posts I was making were too much. I've sort of been wrapped up in the excitement of this event, as for me it has been far more successful than in the past. In the future you could just mention it to me and I would have lowered the frequency of the posts. I deleted the most recent one to respect this.)

I loved this game, kinda.

It's just that the controls were weird. I had to tap the arrow for every move, instead of just holding it.

Cute, well made game! I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :) https://youtu.be/7ZuTwiufN-U
