Dear Tzoop,

I do game dev. as a hobby and thought your game was cool! Here are some of my thoughts while playing:


1. Jumping

Your jump height felt fitting to the game, but perhaps lowering the gravity a touch would make it feel better. Also, it is usually better to make it so the longer you press jump the higher the player jumps.


2. Magic

The magic was cool- it reminded me of the original Kirby series on NES! I think that you should have a cool down or a limit on how many times you can use it. Maybye have the small enemies drop magic refills of some sorts.


3. Design

I thought the item collection was cool as a goal for completing the level- If they were called something other than items I apologize I skipped the story XD. Maybe have each level devided into segments, and each segment has a mini boss in it. in order to obain the items you must kill the mini bosses in each segment of the level, then return to the beggining of the level and use your key to open a door. the door opens up to either the next level, or a boss monster.


Just some food for thought! I hope you find this helpfull, and keep me posted on how this game is coming! Pls post all new versions you make!


Sincerely,

Hi PixelPoifectGames!

Thank you very much for playing the game and for the helpful comment! Your thoughts and ideas are very good.
I am not planning to create newer versions of this game. But maybe i will use the feedback if i make another platformer one day.
The idea with holding the jump button for more jumping height is very great. Yes, you are also right, that the game could use a few bosses (or at least a few other enemies) :D  It only has one enemy.
Thank you very much for the positive feedback!

Have fun creating games and a nice year 2020!

Tzoop
