Update: Now with navigation system! Have fun!

--------------------------------------------

Controls:

Left/Right arrow keys to move left and right
Up arrow key to use the jetpack
Press R to restart
Press M to mute the sound

Avoid obstacles like walls or flying objects and collect 7 pieces to win the game.

Hints:

- The pieces have to be added into the assembly machine. The first piece can directly be found right next to the assembly machine. The machine can be found on the second lower level on the right.

- When you collect a piece, you can take a break by landing on the ground with it, the game should be a lot easier with it :)

This game is a fully playable student project, that a fellow student and I made within a week.

We had to use old student game concepts we made before in the course and polish it up. I teamed up with a fellow student (http://gamejolt.com/profile/zein-okko/240433) and we combined the gameplay of my old project with his custom graphics, music and sound from his previous student project.

Here are the reference games:

This game is highly challenging! Have fun!

I have to be honest, when I played this game for the first time I didn't know what to do and just flew around till I got bored. It's really great that you read the user reviews and updated your author comments with more information and hints, and that you added a navigation system to the game.

With this few changes it's much clearer for the players what to do. Now it's an enjoyable game (yet challenging, like you wrote) with an amusing theme and good-working game mechanics.
Especially the old-school feeling of your game made it a great fun to play for me :)

Satyre responds:

Thanks for the feedback and congrats getting all medals :D

I'm glad that you gave the game a second chance ^^. I'm learning from every project and if I get nice feedback, then I don't hasitate to fulfill all possible wishes to improve the gameplay.

C'est joli, ça marche bien mais on est vraiment perdu dans le jeu au départ car nous avons un peu trop de choix possibles. Il aurait été pas mal à mon sens de nous mettre des objectifs plus clairs.

Satyre responds:

Salut et merci pour ton commentaire. Je tente d'incorporer un radar jusqu'à dimanche pour que les joueurs reconnaissent les objectifs directement au début du jeu. J'espère tu le tentes alors encore une fois :)

Some instruction would be nice. Like why can't I touch the floor? WHere am I supposed to go? What are we doing here??? You know, basic gameplay stuff

Satyre responds:

As mentioned in other comments, instructions in form of a radar will be added un the next update.

As for the gameplay. it's flappy-esque. You know, just tapping one button and avoiding collisions with anything. Your jetpack is very unstable and will explode on collision.
The game is a collecting skill game. Find 7 ship parts and assemble them in a machine on the lowest floor. Collect all parts to see the meaning of collecting.

However, the game also is about exploration.

I don't know what is the objecyive of this game! Might be cool, but I dunno what to do!! ;-; Cool graphics and song by the way

Satyre responds:

You have to collect 7 parts of a spaceship and put them into a assembly machine in the lowest level on the right. After putting all parts together, you'll finish the game.

Like Plasmarift said below, I used up many lives trying to figure things out.
Saying "The machine" is a bit confusing as there are those other blocks also looking like machines. (like the 2 at the starting point)
imo, the game is fine, just a little more guidance for the 1st box would be enough.
Maybe a think bubble popping out from the mouse showing what the box and machine looks or an arrowing guiding to the machine and on the machine would be shown what the next box looks like?

..or simply just a bit more clarifications in the instructions?? ;)
============
"The machine" is on the right side of the bottom floor, a bit further right is the 1st box.
The boxes look like the medals including it's square frame.
You cannot land anywhere apart on the box, nor can you touch anything, even those ceiling pipes and signs. You can ignore: the elevator black wires, flowers and spacecrafts.
+ the airlock door can be opened!

Anyway GJ & thanks for the fun! :)

Satyre responds:

I've changed the text to be clearer. Next time I don't include too much riddles in the game description and don't let the medals work as indicators xD. I like to experiment too much. Great job beating the game and thanks for the review! Anyways I'll add particles that show the position of the next part in the next update :)
