That was really cool! A nice progression of game mechanics that really mesh well together, combined with an art style that rules. I was really surprised by how much more natural the EDSF controls were for me, but I guess that's to be expected considering the large amount of time I've spent using WASD controls.

Love the graphics. Fun game. Even the dither for spatial is a nice touch.

P#88592 2021-03-05 19:02

What a lovely little game. The aesthetics and level design are really well made. Nice work!

P#88598 2021-03-05 21:56

pretty fun i'm gonna try speedruning it

P#88674 2021-03-08 15:30

i spent a while thinking this was a sidescroller and then i figured out that it's a top-down view

P#88882 2021-03-12 16:17

I really enjoyed this, the platforming was wonderfully tight and the ramp up in challenge was perfect. The music was a lovely accompaniment too! Up with this sort of thing.

P#88884 2021-03-12 17:00

Idunno how, but the game saves, so thats cool

P#88964 2021-03-14 14:10

Loved it! Didn't expect it to be so good.

P#89018 2021-03-15 19:06

great game

P#89221 2021-03-19 18:06

The sound track mixed with the gameplayu is sooo good

P#89233 2021-03-19 23:03

got back to the begining :)

P#89240 2021-03-19 23:25

question. Can you go back to the begining with the colour switched

P#89247 2021-03-20 03:38

i'm a sucker for anything with vector graphics. great gameplay too!

P#89404 2021-03-23 19:05

I loved it! The room with the waves of disappearing platforms was the hardest part for me. And I loved all the cool mechanics you included! Thank you so much for sharing. This helped me get through a boring meeting haha.

P#89463 2021-03-24 18:24

the part with the red balloons or cannons are very donkey kong country inspired i love it lol

The aesthetics, sound effects, and soundtrack are lovely, and some of the mechanics were pretty interesting too. I thought the interactions of the breakable platforms with the red balloons was a neat wrinkle, as were the togglable floor/walls.

I did have a few issues tho:

  • Something about the timing of the breakable platform spawners was very frustrating for me; it seemed like some of them just didn't have an optimal pattern at all (especially the 4 columns one, and to a lesser extent the one with 3 rotating spawners). Having the emitters blink or pulse right before spawning one might help a little since it would give a clear visual tell to time your actions from.
  • I also kept getting tripped up by the fact you can only autojump on breakable platforms - I feel like it's confusing to have to press the button each time you want to jump from a white platform but can hold it down to jump continuously from the breakable ones, and it messes with the gameplay flow a little every time you have to switch between them. I'd greatly prefer being able to hold the button down to continually jump from any surface.

What a weird game. Love it!

P#91119 2021-04-26 15:07

Love this game.

P#91235 2021-04-28 08:04

This is great, such a cool look and plays well. Customizable wobble is fun. Soundtrack is very nice, I wish it were on eg. Bandcamp! (And thanks for introducing me to SunVox.)

P#95087 2021-07-20 04:19

@touk Thank you! Hope you enjoy SunVox too!

I just put the soundtrack on Bandcamp :) https://lucatron.bandcamp.com/releases

P#95118 2021-07-21 03:39

Awesome, I've bookmarked that for the next Bandcamp Friday.

P#95229 2021-07-24 04:06

Simple, efficient, and the mechanics getting all together are really cool. I only noticed at the end that there is a double and even a triple jump! I did all the game with a simple jump lol

P#96096 2021-08-16 13:52

Simple but so satisfiying ! Mechanics are surprising and pretty good.

P#96737 2021-08-31 19:17

Love this game. Didn't know what to expect going in, I really like the difficulty curve in this, lots of precision platformers just go far too hard too soon. The art style is really cool, I appreciated being able to adjust the wobble effect, the default wobble was a bit too much for me. The soundtrack was great too, I haven't played any other Pico-8 games that had 'external' soundtracks, but it really fit well for the game. Great stuff. :)

Breaking news!: Local star(fish?) is jumping around like a rabbit, the reason? We do not know.

P#102916 2021-12-16 15:43

Hi, just wanted to say that I really love this game and I look forward to your future work :)

P#113852 2022-07-01 04:40

at the last cannon if you jump before the credits roll you kinda get a double jump, still cool tho.

P#133337 2023-08-21 03:55

you ruined my life by making the pink platform, im gonna follow this guy.

P#133339 2023-08-21 05:23

Looks good! (Except when wobble off)

P#135504 2023-10-06 10:54

really addictive, lots of fun

P#139784 2024-01-08 05:42

This is awesome, I feel like the only thing it's really missing is some sort of scoring mechanic. Number of lives used, stages passed, etc. Great game, very addictive. Also, I shot you a message on Twitter (Arcade Legend), check it out if you have a chance!
