Ratings and Reviews
Pretty but poor platformer gameplay
I was drawn to this game for its art style but can’t get past the poor gameplay. It looks like a side-scrolling endless runner crossed with a platformer, reminding me of games like Nitrome’s Leap Day, but the control responsiveness and physics are off. So for example, the first character has a roll move that allows you to dodge under hanging obstacles. However, this dodge has a tightly predefined distance, so the character pops up immediately upon completion. That’s fine in a game with stationary objects, like most endless runners, but here there are objects that move. That means you can easily find yourself in situations that are unwinnable, e.g., if you are moving in the same direction as a swinging platform that you need to dodge under, because you run a little slower than the swing, your only option is to dodge under it (limited distance) or jump over it (finicky hit box). Combine that with limited lives and an unskippable countdown timer after losing 3 lives, and you have a lot of unnecessary and repetitive frustration. There are also odd choices for the physics; for example, your character typically sails through the air when jumping in a slow arc yet if you walk off of a ledge, you drop literally straight down like a rock, and at a FASTER rate than you fall in jumps! That just makes no sense at all; the game does not consistently apply its own physics, which for a platformer, for me, is the kiss of death.
I’m bummed man, the song is pretty repetitive and annoying, but some times that happens with games like this, and endless running games aren’t always that great, maybe you thought about making the character control-able, maybe not idk, but I would have preferred the control. But what I’m truly bummed about is your main character....
I’m a massive fan of Calvin and Hobbes, so to see you try to make some a game in honor of that is cool, but poorly executed. Calvin and Hobbes is something very dear to millions, and I’m assuming to you as well, at least I hope so, so I bummed to see that your inspiration veered to closely to plagiarism, the main character looks ALMOST identical to Calvin. From a business standpoint that’s just marketing, from a fans perspective of the original IP, it hurts because Bill Watterson hated gimmicky sellout stuff....
I believe you were inspired, I just don’t think you understood how to go about it without making the true fans angry, BUT I’m also bummed at how some people are just being insanely hurt to the point that they can’t give constructive criticism, so from one artist to another I’m sorry you have to deal with that, but I also can see where both sides are coming from.
The design for the main character seems quite similar to Calvin from Calvin and Hobbes. I played through the first 10 levels, and was pretty bored. Not bad, but also not terribly inspired gameplay, but I can see myself wasting some time at the DMV playing this or something.
The UI seems pretty weird though? Why is there no settings button? I wanted to turn off the music, but could not find a way. When I tapped the sound box on the right side of the main menu it brought me to the level select screen. Once there, there’s no way to go back to the main menu. Ok, weird but I guess if there is no reason to be on the main menu (such as to turn the sound off) it doesn’t matter too much. Also when in the game, the pause button does not have any way to restart the level, it forces you to quit to the level select screen and then reselect the level you were playing. Which wastes time and there’s no reason for. And of course, again no way to get to settings from the pause menu or turn off the sounds.
Overall, it’s ok.
