If you mean playing the game, I wasn't sure if this was as intuitive as it could've been as a web game, as I notice it has a bit of a learning curve to it.

If you mean making the game, yeah, anyone can do it, better even. Just make something, even if it's not the "proper way". You'll figure out what's good practice eventually, but what's more important is getting into the habit of making things without worrying "is it perfect yet?".

As you can tell, this game might've strayed too far in that last point ;P

Game is great but I got to 4km and my character turned invisible and I died.

Amni3D responds:

You mean the invincibility buffer? Yeah, it might be a little short.
(although I do think it feels weird, otherwise.)

It's an alright game. I like that you gave the player a chance to get the "Just this once" deal with the shopkeeper. The game is frusturating, and it would be helpful.

Amni3D responds:

Yeah, there's not much safety nets in this game, and frustrating is a common criticism this gets. While making a game difficult is a tough balance, there's plenty I could've done here to make it less annoying to play. I think it's one of the reasons some people put down the game and not get past 1km.
Definitely noted, although I want to make games with an air of difficulty. Just I need to do that part more competently.

Its prety clean and simple, like a popular mobile game. The only think that its probably a little anoying is that there's no option to change the controls, and the hey to go down (X) is above the key to go up (space).

Is like inverted Y of mouse XD
Also, I put my keyboard on my back like the inverted Y mouse and the controls feel so natural! (But I'm also feel stupid on that pose XD)
But overthise that, the game is so great!

Amni3D responds:

Yeah, that's input I'll keep in mind for next time. I stuck with what was more or less the more popular layout for web games, but I can see why it annoys some of you. And depending on the complexity of the game, I'll look into rebindable controls.

Pretty fun to play; cool graphics and charming characters that make you want to get farther and farther. A bit frustrating though: the enemies don't act in ways you can react to a lot of the time, and the stamina system can screw you over when it really doesn't even need to be in the game (at least from my impression).

Amni3D responds:

The enemies come down to design oversights in my part.
I think the stamina comes down to tying too much to it. If you want to glide, you have to eat stamina to dash first. If you want to double jump, you have to eat stamina, even so. I don't think the idea is inherently bad here, but too bound to it. Like, could the game play better if double jump was independent of stamina? Or if dashing had a smaller up front cost? Or what if the gliding was completely independent of dashing even if they both use stamina? I feel the abilities should be rethought if I ever touch the idea again (which I do want to, eventually).
