might make a full game of it, i made this in Scratch, plz don't laugh lol

Also I made the artwork... i like pixel art

Edit: Took everyones suggestions into account and I'm currently switching to another game engine called "Stencyl". It's has a somewhat familiar interface for a Scratch user like me, and it is WAY more optimized. So the future looks bright.

Well, it works, so far.

Please add at least ONE level of content before subitting something, or you will be stuck with negative feedback like this.

Its just a test. And I don't mind negative feedback, they are actually helpful.

I can't find anything wrong with it. Good work!

"might make a full game of it" well, at least I would like to see a full version of the game, where it has more content than just 4 platforms

That's pretty good for Scratch actually. The graphics are well made.

It's a bit too simple to be honest. But, for probably your first game, it's certainly better than most. And I think there is potential. But you should first get some criticism so you can improve for making a full game.

First off, add more enemy types (this is just one simple fairly dull enemy with no animation. People want enemy variety because it makes the game interesting)

Second, add an end to the game (etc, make levels and a way to reach to the end of the levels, there's no goal so there's no motivation for the player)

Third, jump to a new Game Engine, Scratch is a very bad engine for running games, even this game clearly had some issues with performance. I recommend Unity or Godot, both are good for this sort of thing.

Now, with all that out of the way, I want to give some praise where it's due. I think the sprite art, is not bad. Needs some work to be a bit more stylised and interesting (it's quite square-ish rather than organic), but it's not bad for a beginner.
I'd need to see more of what you could do to give more informed feedback though (this is a very limited view of what you can do)
Player is simple, but controls okay. I think you should make the player itself more interesting though.

Overall, give this game more of a concept you can really build around to make it stand out. Think of games you enjoy, and why you enjoy them. And take inspiration from those, to assemble your own game, trying to make it a polished gem. Because this game needs a stronger idea I reckon. But there's potential.
Show a new build of this game in future once you've taken all the feedback. Since people can give more specialized feedback on what you can improve.
I wish you luck on that.

Dim-J responds:

Those are some really good tips, thank you for taking the time and effort to give such a informative feedback. Appreciate it :D
Also yeah Ive been trying to switch to another game engine called Pygame. So yeah I might change the game engine.
