Roasts
Game Graphics Level Design

I played the PC Demo and could not
* The game is interesting and has a lot of cool elements and puzzles which are not so common in platformers.
* The overall art style is really nice

*I don't get into a game flow. I think its because of the level design as well as the background art. For me it's kind of hard to distinguish the background from the important interaction game elements. It would be great if you would reduce the contrast of the not so important elements a bit, just to undestand the level layout better.

* Regards to the leveldesign, give the player a little more space, it felt always very dense.

* The camera is too close to the player imho.

*Please be a little more forgiving on the controls. The long jump is sometimes really hard to do, even though I played with the controller.

*The main character is a little weird to me, as it has wheels but can still jump. I would have gone with a full animated robot in a human form ;)

* The tutorial is nicely done, but I would love to speed up the text more. Also the reveal text has a small issue with printing the word half and then switching to the next line

Thank you so much for having a look at our game.

Good feedback regarding the music/sfx. We have made the music with Music Make Jam (we are only 2 guys only with art and programming background). If you play the game you will realize that the pace does actually quite fit. Its a 100 bpm and I have tried fast bpms without getting the same good feeling. Nonethless there might be better fitting music, but therefore we would need a professional composer which is too expensive atm. Regarding the SFX you are totally right, we need more variants of particular sounds!

Really really happy you like our game! :D

I might be asesoned developer, but that does not protect you from making bad games, I know this, because I have worked on enough games which I think are medicore or even really bad ;).

Great installs is relative, as 15k DLs seems a lot for two weeks, but we have had a little feature in the Google Play Indie Corner and it was less DLs than expected tbh. It wasn't so bad either, because we had time to polish the game more. Nonethless the Google Play Store is a bitch to get a decent number of downloads, its really hard, and we are struggling with good keywords, store conversion etc. We are actually spending a lot of time on those things and still scratching the surface. Hope to get the hang of it sometimes or switch to make some more complex games for PC/Steam. :).
