Nobody catches Juancho: first nightmare

What is wrong with you, Juan Carlos?

You are a nobody. The only meaning of your life is killing while trying to break free.

The only talent of Juancho is being a crazy murderer. No matter how strong they are, nobody can beat that. Nobody can catch Juancho.

JOYSTICK SUPPORT!! Just plug the joystick after the first level. Any kind of controller is supported (I think).

How many levels are there? As far as I can tell, they're randomly generated and go on forever.

i love this game, i have fun, but then i realized u have a random-stone generate system, and i had to suicide myself to get stones close to me :<

i really liked the game except for a few things.

i liked the intro, the story and the writing, all that was awesome.

I see what you were trying to do with the "slick" controls. A person cant stop from a full sprint instantly which is why you make a little slide effect when you stop running. However you confused this with the "walking on ice" effect. Walking on ice, no matter how slowly you move, you will slide. But with the effect you are trying to create, he should only side after building to max speed. This effect i did not like.

The other effect i did not like was "cant see in the dark" i understand you wanted the player to be disoriented in the dark, and to not be able to see where they are going or where their characters/enemies are, but you ended up creating confusion on where the walls are. Please just make the walls grey or something to eliminate this.

Lastly i rarely support randomizing levels. When you randomize levels it brings luck into the equation and limits the use of skill and reasoning and brings it into the realm of trying over and over until the conditions are right. I notice that the rocks some times move around, this is what i am referring to. I came to play a skill game, not a slot machine.

you missed those three points so i gave you a 70% rating. i liked the atmosphere you created and overall experience of the game.

Ive been trying to play this game for two days now and I guess Firefox isnt supported because I cannot for the life of me get this game to work. I press space to start in the beginning and it pulls into just a platform looking deal with (who I assume is) Juancho. But then I follow the marker to go right to get the stone and he goes outta frame. Then it glitches and goes back to the start screen.

Please fix so i can play!

Biggest frustration with the game was not being able to tell what was wall and what was shadow, as well as where Juan was inside the shadow. Second biggest frustration was how imprecise the controls were, with Juan sliding like an ice skating pro and throwing rocks in incredibly unreliable ways. The repetitive music loop didn't help much either.

What's left after that is a basic stealth game with a bunch of mechanics thrown together that don't really interact in particularly interesting ways; half of which don't need to be used to complete a level. It feels like you got a lighting engine and a pathfinding engine, put them together and didn't think about how to design a really solid game around them. It took talent to put this together, but it needs a lot of work before it can be a particularly good game.
