very good game, the mechanics is very simple, and at the same time very fun

no sound, the visuals are pretty good. no power ups ans not may types of enemies i am seeing that from a few people that using his course, maybe think outside the box. maybe just a coincidence

Zacoons responds:

Thanks for your feedback! This is the first game I have finished so I need all of the feedback I can get. Also I drew it all with a mouse so be IMPRESSED.

ok nice concept, but there doesn't seem to be and end game. no powerups and a very small screen to play on

Zacoons responds:

Thank you for your feedback! I'll update it soon.

Good concept but the game has no point system and it will randomly shut off movements.
If you fix the movement problem this would be a 3 star game, with a point system and maybe a leaderboard 3.5.

Zacoons responds:

A leaderboard sounds interesting. I'll start working on that but it may take a while.

I really like the art style however there are some glaring issues with the game. First there doesn't seem to be a scoring system or if there is it isnt clear like the post before me made clear. This leads to the second issue where sometimes the controls stick and the character gets lost at the edge of the screen making me unable to come back down even though I am pressing the button. Finally I think that the there needs to be some level of diversity in the game to promote progress if nothing else. Hope this helped and look forward to future games.

Zacoons responds:

Thanks Rigoesbeuno! I think this has been the most productive feedback yet!
I'm glad you liked the art style, but in future games it is likely to change because I have collaborated with a different artist now.
Make sure you keep an eye on this channel because I am working on Skull Cave 2.
