I feel i can play it longer if you can fix/add this stuuf:
- Graphic is too simple, try to improve background and planets a bit maybe
- Rework successful 'land' sound. Maybe get 4-5 similar sounds with different tonalities and play it if player lands from planet to planet very fast
- There has to be some sound for rocket boost (when you hold your finger)
- Rocket customization (skins)
- Video ad after first try is not that good
But gameplay core is very good and addictive.

Thanks for the feedback. There shouldn't be an advert after the first try...will have to look into that. I will have a look at changing the sounds too. Anyway thanks for the tips

I really like the the art style and how simple it is, my gripe with it is that it needs more color. I can't play games that are all gloomy like that. This is the same reason that I installed re-shade on PUBG, that game is way too gloomy! Obviously this isn't the way everyone feels but it would keep me from wanting to play your game again.

- Game seems too hard, I got a high score of 5 so far
- I got a video ad after first play as well
- Add an option to share in-game
- I like the constant tutorial

Overall decent game but my problem with it is that there are 50 more games of this style in the marketplace right now, I don't know what the genre is called maybe "gravity jumpers"? or "planet hoppers"? Unless this is your first or second game I recommend trying to think of something a little more unique or if you're going to enter into an existing type of game, move the bar up.

Roast my game please?

Thanks very much for the feedback. The colours are quite neutral at the beginning but it gets more colourful further on. Alltough at the minute it might be too difficult to get there. I tried some of those planet hopper games but they control much different to my game. Is there any i should have a look at? Thanks again for the feedback, I will have a go of your game now.

I like the simplicity of this game, easy to learn, and easy to control. Somehow I don't feel like it is happening in space. After 7-8 points it became a bit repetitive. I think it is not enough, I felt something is missing. Maybe you should move the camera slowly forward to urge the player to jump, and also move the planets. At the launching and the landing the spaceship makes a weird flickering movement. Ads are disappearing after 1-2 seconds.

Thanks for checking out my game! I think you have made some good points here and I hope to fix some of them soon. I think it doesn't feel like its in space because the rocket falls instead of just floating off. I'll have to think about that one. I will be adding a timer and checkpoints to urge the player forward. I'm not sure what the flickering movement is. Can you see it in the vid I posted? Not sure why ads are cutting off like that.
Do you have a game you would like me to roast? Anyways thanks very much, i'll try and fix some of those problems

I don't think the graphics could need any enhancement, they're perfect. Ok, the spacecraft could be a little bigger but that's already a bit nitpicky.

However, the controls feel odd. Like they're laggy. I don't how long it takes the system to realise when a touch actually is released, but even if there's just a tiny delay (what it feels like), this kills the fun at high speeds. I don't know if there's an easy way to compensate that in the players favour. The other approach would be to slow down the whole game a little. Maybe? Or I'm just crap at admitting that I'm not good. Who knows. My high score is 3.

If you'd like to re-roast:

Thanks for checking out my game :) I might move the touch controls into fixed update to see if it improves the lag. I don't notice it myself, i think it could happen only on certain devices. Thanks for the feedback

Game Graphics Animation
Yes. Yes. Yes. this is minimalistic, the way I would develop my game. looks good! good job. Background can be more 'complex' a bit (e.g. color gradation).
Need a little animation on the planets to look more attractive. and, the rocket ship, surely can be a little bigger. so you can add more 'perks', upgrade item etc....

Overall, that's looks presentable for time killer game.

Thanks for playing my game! Glad you like the art style. I think I will make the rocket bigger in the next update. I will have a go of your game now

I forgot to elaborate about my statements...
The idea of 'quick/time killer' game is basically to entice the user to play just "one more time".
- putting saturn rings after jumping on few planets
- after few more planets, put more green alien waving
- after few more planets, upgrade the rocket by changing its color
- after few more planets, put the 'I was here' flag (as the user had been up to this level before)

this is just an example, btw... hopefully, you got the hang of it now...

make them curious... make that feeling to 'play just one more time', and just 'one more..."
that will make your game stick in the head, and become the game that people talk about.

good luck!

I played RocketLoop today and it is very addictive.
It's already mentioned above, but you should really add a sound for when the rocket is gaining speed.
The game is very fast. I suggest you to decrease the speed in the beginning and make it faster with the player's progress.
Graphics are too simple.

Thanks for checking out Rocket Loop! I've tried adding a sound for speed but it gets quite annoying after a while...i'll have to try again and see if i can find the right sounds. Thanks for the advice I will try make it a bit easier for new players. If you have a game you would like me to roast let me know!
