Reviews for "Rock Bottom"

The idea of getting something special after killing yourself is not new, but at this point, it is kind of hard to come up with something that has not been made already.
The level design was superb, which made me keep trying to find a solution to each level and some of them were actually quite interesting. I liked the fact that most of the sounds seemed to be done by just making noises on a microphone, which gave the game a nice feeling which I tend to associate with a game made because you liked to make it.
I only got a couple of 'complains' about the game, first, the lack of a decent background music (I could hear something, but I am not quite sure if it was some low tune or it was just the 'cave wind'. Second thing is something that I actually look forward in any game, a good story. You start by waking up on the cave and you try to get out, which is a nice start. I can see that you tried to make a plot, but for reason it didn't fully get into the game, once you get out of the cave, that's it. Nothing but a few sentences about a possible future for yourself and the credits (I wont say more to not completely spoil)
The game is a really nice way to kill some free time, but not much more than that. Once again, the level design was incredible, and the difficulty escalates quite slow, but once you get the power up, things get really interesting and it gets challenging.

It's not a bad game, but it could use some improvements. First of all, it could use a way to reset a level. I got stuck a few times because I messed up. Secondly, don't have all the levels unlocked from the very beginning. Lastly, have a continue button especially since the levels aren't numbered in the game but only named.

Unique, but ultimately boring game.

This game offers an interesting concept of using your deaths to progress, the puzzles of how to die each time keeps the gameplay unique. However there were a few times where the puzzles became obvious and became a cakewalk.

The sounds are nicely done for the feel of the game however the sound levels sometimes went up and down for no discernible reason. The option to mute or adjust volume sounds would have been a nice addition.

The art style is not particularly unique, but it works for the game, not needing to be very distinct for a cave feel. However differing backgrounds and occasional differences would have been something to look forward to. In addition a larger size for the game is a needed change, currently the small window size hampers the ability to enjoy the game to it's fullest.

Rock Bottom is a nice place to sink some time and kept me entertained for about an hour, and overall I would give it a 4/5.

Fun game!

I'm a huge fan of pixel art. Really fun gameplay. I really like the interface design. Great job!
Good luck on your future projects!
