A short adventure game I made based around needle/gimmick platforming with a very simplistic art style.

Following a theme is for losers

This was an enjoyable shortventure mainly based around needle'ish platforming and using a few simple gimmicks here and there to enhance it. The minimalist aesthetic was easy on the eyes, although I preferred the visuals in stage 2 (also my favourite stage in the game). You pull off the VVVVVV style very well, with both the level design and the extra touches such as the title texts and visuals feeling polished. I also particularly liked the stage 3 screens where the single/double jump star gimmicks were used, although on a small note I felt the save sound effect in stage 3 was noticeably louder than everything else. For the most part though the audio was without issues.

The ending did feel very abrupt, and I wished there was some sort of finale to cap it off, be it a boss or perhaps a final stage/tower with the mixed-stage tile style you used in your final screen (which I'm always a fan of). I couldn't really find a way to tie the game to the shortventure theme either, although that didn't detract from my enjoyment.

Ultimately it's a nice little game with some pretty fun segments. I would've liked to have seen more variety in the design of the early stage or perhaps something a bit unusual to make it more memorable in parts. A nice entry though and congratulations on making your first adventure! Hopefully we see more if you're feeling up to it.

Преимущественно приятные экраны и хороший визуал. Гиммики там и тут, прорывного ничего не делают, но и в грязь лицом не падают. Хороший фангейм
