Nice little retro game there! Pretty short and sweet.
Thanks :) Hehe.
Reading through previous peoples' comments, I'd have to agree.
Brilliant game and yes, I nostalged a wee bit, too. I think it is its simplicity that makes this game so addictive.
As afore mentioned, power-ups, high scores and bonuses would be great. Tweaking the difficulty of each level by increasing difficulty, adding more challenging obstacles and reducing time limits without making a game too difficult too early or too easy can be extremely challenging. That elusive golden ratio, lol.
All-in-all, though, a very cool game, I liked it. 4.5/5, allowing for the areas of improvement which I hope to see in GemHunter II.
Not so bad. Adding high scores, power up would give this an extra +2 stars instead half.
Next time I aim to do just this :)
Enjoyable, but missing basic elements like themes where one can be immersed in.
Thanks, next time I'll try and find those elements.
This actually isn't a bad game! I'm quite shocked, the graphics are appealing, the music is nice, and the game as a whole is very relaxing. Just one thing though: the game is broken! And you know why? Because the game randomly chugs in spots. I know this isn't my computer because it is brand new, and has played other Newgrounds games flawlessly. I can't do any of the platforming sections because of this small defect. Fix this, and I would give it a 4 instead.
Odd, it runs fine on my old PC. I'll look into that, thanks for bringing that to my attention :).
