The art-style is fantastic. The game play leaves room for some improvement though:
For one, it shouldn't be possible to have a ice above and below (since you can't jump and duck at the same time) ... The ice on the bottom of the screen is often hard to see, but I guess that's part of the game.
You could integrate running faster and slower with the right and left arrow buttons, or similar features.
Interesting art style, very cute and fun to look at with nice music. I feel that this was the thing that stood out the most about this game, as runners tend to be fairly generic as is, maybe if there was more of a challenging element or the introduction of power ups or enemies could make the gameplay better. It's an okay game, beautifully made, only problem is it's only an 'okay' game.
Thanks for feedback!
Yes, you're right: game is too generic. We've released it "as is" just to look for general feedback. I'm a bit surprised by numerous kind words about graphics/style and now i'm sure we should fight back boring gameplay with new cool features. Here or in sequel - no matter. So, please wait: new great gameplay is coming!
And regarding music: author is JosSs - the legend of the demoscene. This guy is awesome and i'm glad we've got his permission to use his tune in our game.
OK. Take care with the blue things.... those are what can kill you. It doesn`t get really interesting.
Yup! I personally don't like such boring gameplay too. Will try better next time.
It's a pretty so.. so... game. The gameplay is solid, but it doesn't stand out as anything new or interesting. The only thing that really stands out is the art style; but because the rest of the game is so generic it comes off feeling like a gimmick. In some small way the graphics remind me of some of those old handheld games of the 80's and early 90's, but that doesn't change how the game could have been so much better than being just so bland.
Thanks! Will try to do our best regarding gameplay next time.
BTW, just updated the game to make all medals reachable. Still very challenging though.
