https://arltb.itch.io/5-levels-of-lockdownHello! This is a game that COVID-19 and the lockdown inspired me to make. I thought it would be funny. Now that I made it, I think it's quite fun to play. If you choose to play this game, you must try to survive all 5 levels of lockdown without dying of hunger, thirst, or, of course, disease. Also try not to run out of power or things can get difficult. If you're still alive when the timer runs out, you've made it through the level.How the game works is you have to get money to buy food at the grocery store, water at the water store and power at the power store, all while avoiding coming into contact with other people and getting infected. You also need to watch your surroundings because if you touch someone else's private building, you'll also get infected. And if the police catches you going off the yellow path, you'll be fined. And you must remember to stop at you're house to recover. You have to keep track of everything or you'll die one way or the other.Each level last's 100 seconds, and one last thing is if you happen to run out of power, you still have a chance, but you'll have to find your way without any light. In other words, you'll need to rely on memory of the path.I'm not sure of it's user friendly enough, or good enough in general. I made some updates.So any opinions?Thanks for reading

It looks kind of promising so far but I think you need to think of ways to make it a lot more engaging

Thanks for your help. Literally just before I saw your feedback I already updated it for the sole purpose of getting rid of the police fining problem. I didn't put visible ranges for those things because I thought it would be cool to not really know exactly when you're gonna get fined or infected just like in real life, but I'll think about it. The other things you said I think you have a point and I'll almost definitely make more updates.

You were very helpful thanks

Controls

This looks like a potentially great game but in my opinion the controls ruin everything. I absolutely hate that you have to use the mouse in order to change the direction you face and to punch and block. It feels so awkward. Plus you also have to use space and shift. I don't understand why you would make us use controls that are all so far apart. Which hand am I supposed to use for which keys and buttons? You seriously need to plan the controls a lot more carefully If you ask me.

But it doesn't actually look like anyone else has a problem with it so I don't know. Maybe I'm just not the type of person who likes or understand these key combinations

Oh. I don't even know what a gamepad is. I'll look it up

Oh it's just like a regular type of game controller or something. I actually do have one of those. Sorry for my last too comments that don't actually have much to do with your game. But I'm done talking now
