My first game, did everything myself; art, programming and music.
Thanks to TurkeyOnAStick, Havegum and Cloudeater for testing and helping me figure out the code.

Benny's Adventure started as part of the winter game jam here on newgrounds. I was the artist on that team but unfortunately the programmer had some computer trouble in the last couple of hours before the deadline, which meant our submission didnt get finished. Having already made all the art for the game I figured I`d just do it myself.


[You wont get a pop-up but the medals do work]


[it can sometimes be difficult to maneuver through the prison (what do you expect, you're an ox). Neither me nor my testers encountered unpassable obstacles though, let me know of your problem and Ill see if I can help you out.]

It was not bad, but it was not very good either

I did like your graphics though.

seriously this is really fricking short.
also, your controls are really fricking bad.
for the love of god, ice does not make you go only one direction.
neither does land for that matter.
also, its actually physically possible to move after you run into a wall.
fix this game and make it not so mind crampingly annoying to play.

Nice and simple

Overall, this is a good game and you did very well for a short little experiment.

My one problem with this game is that I found the momentum on the ice to be extremely unidirectional and effectively frictionless. I couldn't really get the Fire Starter medal because touching the ice would mean I'd be stuck sliding at my current momentum in whatever direction I was headed, wasting more than a few seconds. Walking backwards or jumping would not really help either until I was at the other end of the ice. I would suggest allowing some sort of realistic friction like most games involving ice where you can somewhat change the sliding or even stand still on ice.

Other than that mechanic, it was a simple and well designed game.

For a first game

it quite good. you should work on the controls though.
especially when jumping into one directon while standing still or is this momentum like feature part of your challenge? (oxes can jump forward not only up from a standing position)

i think most people have difficulties with the drawn cavalier perspective/projection. (i sure had some when trying to jump from the second box that you drop below to reach the upper most plane) this 3d like drawing of the platforms is sometimes irritating and confusing and i would not really recomennded this for such a platformer...

but hey, it you first game and definitely better than my first attempt so : congratulations!

ps: please make a restart button or better, bind a key with a reload funtion to make it easier to restart once you have lost too much time (when trying to get the 30 seconds medal)
