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 game.

Meh. It lacks substance. Also, ever heard of checkpoints?

Good game i would say 4 stars.

Hey! This is really good from what I was able to play, but the lack of checkpoints was sort of frustrating. I had to start from the beginning several times, even after passing multiple levels. If you implemented a checkpoint system, I would definitely come back and play it again. Also, it's just a little bit difficult to gauge what's in the foreground and what's in the background. Otherwise, it's very pretty! Keep up the good work!

Brilliant, to say the least about it. Since this was actually such a short game, I believe I'll leave a shorter review. The story (or what of it) that was presented throughout the game was the simple stereotypical "humanity went wrong and robots lived on" vibe, but it still was able to give out itself very honestly. No real frills, either.

I just wish that you added a few frills with, per say, gameplay. Just simply jumping around like your robot has malfunction every few seconds is kind of boring. No enemies, no real major puzzling obstacles; nothing at all. That's what disappointed me.

For an experiment, though, you did a very well done job at it. The artwork more than made up for the lack of gameplay. I was actually thinking of entering this Stencyl competition myself, but it looks like I won't have the time to actually flesh out my idea any. Good luck if you decide to refine your skills with Stencyl.
