What happened? Am I broken?

I just made this for fun (and to try out Stencyl) It's a pretty neat piece of software, sure was fun to play with. I was going to wait and submit this for Robotday and all that, but I can't spend anymore time playing around with the tools right now. So I'd rather just get it submitted and get back to work on Sagittarian 4.

Notes on Stencyl, MOST of the function in game came with the software. Jumping, all of that. I customized some bits here and there, but the hard part was done. Area transitions, I never found any good tools for that so I built my own in the Stencyl scripting language to allow back and forth between maps.

Was fun! Stay cool guys!

Nice... I love the concept and the art. If I were you I would probally turn this over to flash and make it a full blown game :)



It seems like a good concept but its obviously incomplete, there's no music in the game and some of the jumps (specifically the one after falling through the tunnel) require some extreme precision. What really hurts this game the most is the lack of a checkpoint system, I got about 8 screens in before I fell down a hole and ended up right back at the beginning of the first screen, I highly doubt that was a design choice. Also there should be some kind of way to know where those bottomless pits are, you don't need a neon sign that says "don't fall here" but something so that when you jump it isn't like "you thought there was solid ground down here? lol there isn't."

Overall this game is playable but I can't honestly say it was fun.



This is one of the best Stencyl games I've seen. I'm really impressed with the graphics. It's fun, but the game play has a few problems. I'd really like to be able to use WASD to move around. Having to use the arrows feels clunky and annoying. It's also a drag that you start from square one if you fall off the screen. It'd be much better to start from a checkpoint or the beginning of the screen you're on.

I really like the minimal sounds. Though it really needs a mute button.

All in all this is pretty cool. I'd like to see more games from you in the future.



its ok but not ok you know
