Super Frog's Quest is a platformer reminiscent of the classic SNES era. The game is about a yet to be named frog who must rescue the tadpoles and his froggy family from the organized army of flies. Our friend will also encounter all sorts of other dangerous creatures and must use his frog abilities to conquer his foes.At the moment, I've released a short demo to give players an idea of the final game. Posting this here to hopefully get some feedback and see what people think of it.I'd recommend using a controller, preferrably an XBox controller. You may have to restart the game if you plug in the controller after the game is already loaded.Controls are explained in the How To section of the game. Let me know what you think! :)

Played for about 15 minutes. Got to the part where the wizard looking guy at the cave tells you to get a crystal.

First, I think the artwork and animation is fine, especially for a one-man project. Not sure what the other guy was talking about.

Some of the dialogue I thought was a little corny, lol. Although, it did do a good job of explaining the story and what to do next.

Pressing up to jump can be awkward on a controller, especially on parts where you need to be precise.

It also felt awkward not being able to attack. I kept thinking for a game like this, it was strange not having at least a simple melee attack. I assume you learn how to attack later?

The music that plays when you first leave the house is ear-splitting. The music in the caves was nice and soothing, though.

The jumps feel a bit stiff, like he has too much vertical speed and not enough horizontal speed. Not sure how to explain it.

Anyway, that's what I felt in the short time I played this. Take this criticism as you may. :)

Thanks a lot, Daniel! And thanks for the compliments, haha.

Yeah, like you mentioned, the music and some of the sound effects are still unfinished. Composing is not my strong point. :/

A few notes after watching your playthrough. You can use the directional keys to control the direction of your tongue, which you can use on the enemies that fly above your head. Also, when you have something in your mouth, you can press down to swallow it. Some things will give you powers when you swallow them.

Looking back on it, maybe I should have made the How To section more clear.

Glad you enjoyed the game. :)
