my weekly game jam 143 game
« on: April 09, 2020, 06:53:06 PM »
i made a game for the 143rd weekly game jam

it's a runner/platformer game about a cup of water, i made it with a friend in 3 days

you can get it here https://atrum32.itch.io/water-and-cuppy

i'm not sure if i made the final few levels too difficult, i didn't have much time to playtest it before the deadline

fun run! really like how even tiny little bumps are a big obstacle, and how the breakable platforms play with you not being able to go backwards. cool how you reward saving water to take alternate routes and nab bonus points, though i'm bad at platform so i saved up water for panic jumps instead

i'm struggling with what i assume is the end of level 7, just before the big arrow in the sky. keep getting stunlocked by the last wall of mons...
level 6 was v fun with landing on all the narrow platforms!

thanks! enemy knockback is one of the things i wish i could've done better, currently you just get teleported a certain amount of pixels backwards which can be instant death in some scenarios. wasn't sure how to do it in an intuitive way that was fair in all situations though. my friend found that you can also damage boost by repeatedly jumping off enemies, which is funny and can make some levels easier to clear but it also tanks your score

yeah, that was the intended use of water - either use it to make some parts you struggle with easier, or save it to get bonus points if you care about perfecting every level (which is extremely difficult for the later levels, i will add)

level 7 has some pretty dodgy design at parts to be honest, especially the part just after the arrow.

i guess i didnt comment i played the game but it was really hard for me so i couldnt make it super far. timing games always catch me lol. i did think the strategy with the water was cool tho
