Reviews for "Jetbak Startroopers"

The game was definitely interesting though I do have complaints (and praise) to write of:
- At the beginning, it is never shown what these objects I need to collect are so I spent a good amount of time ramming into objects hoping they were the things I needed to collect.
- You need to make it perfectly clear what the player can touch and what they can't (for example, I thought the black and yellow striped blocks were safe places to land at one point. Since I was able to sit on the beginning platform, I saw no reason why I couldn't sit on them). I also that the other animals could be interacted with and that the place where you are supposed to put the objects was a place I could enter (since it had an arrow).
- Why is it that only one block appears at a time? Why not have all of them appear and let the player decide which one they want to pick up first? (also, how is a player suppose to know where the next one will appear? There's no indicator so it forces the player to explore parts of the game where there was nothing before to see if something is there now. That's more annoying than fun.
- The game is kind of short.

Now for the good:
- I liked the controls. they were solid and provided for a somewhat challenging games.
- I liked that you added in the warning lights for the different hazards, that way, the player isn't forced to wait for the traps themselves to go off to ensure they would have enough time to cross safely.
- the square piece were fun to pick up. The player can sit on them and move left or right (at times, it looked like the character was doing skateboard tricks with them).

Still, it was a pretty good game. I look forward to your future projects.

Thanks for your detailed review. Here are my direct answers.
- I wanted to add a radar or arrows that appear after the spawning and after utilising a part, that's still on my to do list :)
- I have to think about how to realize this, because everything except the collectible parts and the start platform harms the player. Also added to the to do list.
- Blocks only appear after another, because the coding was very complex for the transporting. If all blocks are present, then they will be all attracted in the moment you are transporting one of them. Therefore I prevented this bug, by only letting one spawn at one time. I'll look into this for future updates, but it's time consuming.
- Yeah it's short, but also made in a week ;)

- Thanks, that was the most important part of the gameplay.
- Warning lights were very important to add, to not let the game be too unfair by random obstacles. It's hard enough :D
- Yeah, that's also one of the helping aspects. When you got a piece then it helps you to get to machine faster.

You know, it took like ten minutes to get that you were riffing off of Star Wars. Pretty fun game, graphics look great and the control is pretty solid. I do like picking up the machine parts, easier to be lazy that way. I suppose that jetpack is extra explode-y. Not sure I'd trust one for everyday transport...

All kidding aside, pretty nice for something put together in a fairly short time frame.

Satyre responds:

Thanks! You have to know that mouse clones are not the best jetback builders in the galaxy. They do a great job though, but due to their hasty nature, they always forget to add safety mechanics and yeah no one can tell them to do so after they crash ^^. Congrats for getting all medals :)

Graphics looks nice, music is nice and calming... but given instructions would have been nice in the beginning Although i will admit i did not look in the description in the beginning. I probably should have, but not everyone does this, you have to remember that. It's a bit lacking the fun area though, it's just point a point b game. I don't see any fun too it, maybe i'm just worn out of these types of games. Very repetitive. But don't give up, keep going at it.

Satyre responds:

Tastes are different, so everything is alright. Don't worry, when I have some spare time, I'll work on it. For a week, that's all that could've been done though ^^.
