The controls are choppy as hell.
I haven't seen a game more broken than this one. I mean...where to begin?
- The framerate is absolutely shoddy. This makes the game hard to play, particularly when trying to jump. It seems like the jumping is erratic at best.
- The music cuts out after like 15 or 30 seconds.
- It shouldn't take over 10 shots to kill the enemy. That's rather obnoxious.
- The graphics are crude. Don't know if you were in a rush because of the Game Jam, but there's a lot more to be desired.
- Eventually, the bullets disappear and you can't attack your enemies.
- Why the "zero" key to shoot? That doesn't make any sense. You should've used something better like the J, K, or L key.
I'm really at a lost with all this trouble this game is having. I have to admit: you got a lot of work to do if you want to be good.
Yeh fair enough. I definitely was in a rush to finish it in time for the jam and wasn't always able to get Wick to do what I wanted, so it is what it is.
And as far as a lot more working needing to be done to make it good, I think you're partially correct, but more work would need to be done on Wick Editor before I could begin to fix the issues, and even then, now that the jam is over I really don't see myself putting in any more work on this. I'm glad to be done with it.
Thanks for the review!
Good job working with Wick! I really like the music and the introduction cutscene. The gameplay is pretty finicky and laggy, though, and it's really hard to move properly without falling, especially in later levels. Like you said, though, a lot of that is due to Wick Editor's issues right now. (I'm in the jam too so I completely relate. The lag issues drove me crazy.) I'm glad you were able to finish and submit it!
Thank you so much! Yeah I recognize all those problems too, and I would have loved to have fixed them before release but that just wasn't going to be possible unfortunately. Thanks for checking it out, appreciate the kind words!
Doesn't appear to work in Firefox either, at least for non-Windows users. (I assume you're using Windows?)
Slowly loaded up to 50% then jumped immediately to 100%, waited there a while, then crashed. It also takes a loooooong time to load. What exactly are you doing in the code? What's up with people posting these games that take forever to load these days?
As far as it not being your fault because it's a deficiency in the tool you used (in this case Wick), I'm not familiar with Wick so I couldn't tell you if that's the case or not, but it's still your fault in as much as if you know a particular tool or framework isn't suitable, is too buggy, or flat-out doesn't work, then use something else.
Can I try it again at some point? Yes maybe. But that is my initial experience and my first experience with this game. And yes it also doesn't work on Chrome, as you state.
Yeh I get what you're saying. I just wanted to do something for the Wick Jam that ended a few hours ago.
Sorry it didn't work, I don't know what to tell ya. I didn't get to test in on any other operating systems than Windows 10 unfortunately so I didn't know that would be the case. Thanks for trying anyway!
