Vulcan Island is a 2D platformer game I made for my highschool project.
Don't expect much from it since while I was supposed to have had classes on how to make games, there were no capable teachers to do so, so I pretty much did it the way I could do it within the given time. I MAY upgrade this if gets attention, such as adding a score system (which I don't find hard to make).
Also, since I forgot to add credits, it was all done by me except the soundtrack which was made by Kevin MacLeod ( Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 (
[EDIT] Fixed water problem on the second level

A death effect would be useful so I could see what went wrong. Sometimes graphics is not clear, I could not tell at first sight what is background and what is an obstacle. It's a pain because this one is a fast paced game. I liked the amateur solutions, simple drawing style and the speech synth too. It's cheap but has its vibe.

Some stuff I tried to add, such as the death effect, and the graphics I couldn't do much better since I didn't have much time to present this at school, so I didn't actually got to choose a color scheme or do pretty graphics. And as this was my FIRST game and I did it all myself in a small amount of time, so thanks for the comment. I like to know what I do wrong so I can get it right next time!

It could use some checkpoint system, other than just each level entrance, or a HP bar or something like that, cause it gets frustrating to restart each level when you die, and could also use a reset/respawn key, got stuck a couple of times inside water pits.

Will add the restart button and fix the water issue! Also I thought that reseting the player to the beginning was kind of the point of the game, but if it gets you to quit playing, then I'll add more levels and checkpoints.
Thanks for the review!
