Really spectacular work! I love your design choices around times, lives, and bombs. Took me a while to understand how it all comes together, but once I did it was great. Reminded me of playing games as a kid, and trying to figure out all the weird rules that make them tick (Bubble Bobble of course being one of those and an inspiration here I bet).
Suggestion: A the start of the game show just the countdown in the center of the screen, to help emphasize that you have limited time.
(btw you spelled @gruber_music wrong in your post)
Oops, Thanks @mhughson.
The gameplay was definitely inspired by the early arcade / nes game. No hand holding or tutorials. Just jump in and figure it out. Bubble Bobble was one of the bigger inspiration for this game for sure.
I do like your suggestion. It will put a bit more emphasis on the countdown clock and how important it is to the game.
Thanks for the comment and playing :)
This game is amazing! It got a bit easy towards the end, just because you have nearly unlimited time. I think after level 8 or 9, I went from having like 8 minutes left all the way up to like 32 minutes, and after that I didn't need to worry about time anymore. Not sure if that was some kind of glitch or not.
"AMAZING RUN, WELL DONE"
LVL AVR: 00:00:00 (I guess this is glitched)
RUN TIME: 10:17:93 (01:42:06)
This is a hard game but I love it. The furthest I've managed to get is level 15 before running out of time. The gameplay is really well thought out here.
I love how chaotic some of the levels get and those brief moments of brilliance where you feel like a platforming god shortly before you walk straight into an enemy and die. A single screen platformer like this with no scrolling makes a refreshing change.
I usually try and complete a game before making a video about it, but this was too good to pass up.
