Nice game, but a couple of things could be better:
- The levels get boring, especially the ones where you have to do the same thing 3 or 4 times to get all the keys, I'd prefer less levels but with less repetition. Also the background is always the same, having several different backgrounds would make the game more interesting.
- It would be nice to see how many keys you still need to find and get a signal when you've found the last one.
- I don't like the music, it doesn't fit with the atmosphere of the game IMO.
- Overall, the game is too easy, getting hurt doesn't have any effect and you can just select any level without having to unlock them.
Anyway, good luck with the game!
Thanks for testing and the feedback. You make some very good points.
I think I will reskin this game and give new music (from pro musician, not my own). I'd like to split the 100 levs over four worlds with different backdrops and level graphics. Then I can have just four pieces of much longer music.
The not getting killed part does spoil the game, but it's only in this flash demo.
Again thanks for checking it out, appreciated!
Best game I've played here in a long time!
Nice, but too frustrating
This game reminds me of Secret Agent Man from Apogee. Back in those days, you'd buy a disk with a game like this and play it for hours, no matter how frustrating it was.
But this is 2011, there are millions of games, so when a game gets frustrating, people just move on to the next.
This game really needs more checkpoints in most levels. Also, you should be able to make small jumps instead of always jumping the same height no matter how fast you tap the up button.
There are many places where you have to jump down and can't see what's below, so you have to depend on luck.
Finally, you could make the game look more interesting by making the backgrounds scroll at half speed.
