The HeartBit is a Platformer game made for Ludum Dare 46 in 48h.

Save Miguel by reaching his Heart

Arrows to Move,

Space to Jump / Double Jump / Jetpack / Wall Jump (depend on your character).

Leave Unity FullScreen for PERFORMANCE.

Beat Score, Unlock up to 5 Characters, Collect all the 150 DNA points to Keep Miguel Alive.

For this Jam, I tried to integrate LeaderBoard and Medals from Unity Newgrounds API.

More feature has been coded (dash, swim, etc.) but hasn't been implemented because i didn't manage to make good level design with it in 48h, maybe I will try a full version in the future.

Super... 8-bit Meat Boy..?

The game is pretty good up until playing as the vaccine, in my opinion. But when you do start playing as the vaccine, the game becomes downright unplayable. It feels like I'm slipping around on ice every time I try to make a jump, and I hardly lose any, if not no acceleration when I'm making a turn. I also go way too fast when I'm trying to go in the direction that I jump towards, and I end up hitting a saw at a high speed when I just tried to jump from a wall to a platform.

This game has the absolute worst controls ever and these terrible controls constitute the entire game.

Worse than that, if you somehow manage to get through the entire thing, collecting ALL the collectibles, there's still a good chance the game will cheat you out of that final medal (it did for me). So grats on getting the full 150 but nope no medal for you!

Even if that wasn't the case, this game is just not any fun and shouldn't "fun factor" be the primary criteria for evaluating if a game is any good or not?

Honestly I don't know why everyone else is rating this so highly.

The third vaccine level requires glitching into a wall and jumping to get the top bit. It should be possible to get without this nonsense.
