Didn't enjoy this very much... a lot of it didn't make sense: why am I digging through a grate? why is there one person who will arbitrarily eat the cotton candy, and how am I supposed to figure out who it is without trial and error? There seems to be a clear point after talking with the manager where the puzzles have nothing to do with the story and it all feels tacked on or random, with trial and error or guesswork being your only tools.
I was listening to something when I started playing this, and so naturally turned the volume off in the options, only to have a very loud buzzer countdown completely throw me off guard and make me scramble to shut it off - apparently the warning buzzer does not count as a sound....
During a mission I picked up a fancy looking red chest, but never got the opportunity to open it when I beat the level - it only let me open the normal chest I got. Is that a bug or am I missing something?
Seems to have some balance issues... when I go into melee i seem to have a 30% hit chance at most, but the enemy hits 100% of the time, guaranteeing that I lose. It also seems impossible early on to get all of the loot in a level before killing every enemy, which seems to waste any of the loot you haven't picked up yet.
Giving a boss all three resources when I have one feels incredibly unfair. it doesn't just triple the advantage, it lets him combo off of cards immediately, destroying anything I put down and giving him all the resources he wants. It doesn't feel like a challenge, it feels like luck that's weighted VERY heavily in his favour.
So for the door one, I opened the door and kept all three of them alive, and couldn't figure out why I didn't beat the level. I even stacked all of them on top of each other. I gave up and watched the walkthrough to find out the purple one had to die, and I'm still not sure why, but it seems it's impossible to win otherwise despite no explanation for it.
I wrote my previous post before getting to the gear platforming, but wow. The thing I mentioned about activating the fall animation when running up or down slopes made that incredibly difficult. There also appears to be a glitch where there's a very good chance the character will run by itself, without input, after recovering from a fall on one of the gears, or even just after jumping onto the slope of one. This made the jump onto that single small gear impossible. Any other game with clean platforming this might take me a couple tries, but I've died at lead 40 times trying to get past here and none of them feel like my fault; I can't express to you how annoying it is to clearly make the jump onto the small gear and just have her fly into the air and run right off without any input on my end, forcing me to kill myself and start over. This is game breaking.
I like the art and style (though the title screen doesn't show this at all and almost made me avoid this game). I love the gameplay and narrative (especially the guard complaining about the boiler and having the conversation fade as you move), but the animation can take me out of it at some points (the climbing animation isn't smooth and can't be cancelled) and some specific combination of mechanics can be annoying (running up stairs and stopping abruptly makes the character fly up and trip when they land, one time when I turned around while running up stairs I fell to my death... running down stairs also often results in stumbling as if from a fall). There are some glitchy bits, like the guard dog's animation stuck in the sitting position while running, making him sit-slide backwards when he turned around, but playing this game was a better experience than the top-rated knockoff games on the front page - it was fun. Well done.
I liked everything but the potion recipe: something that grows in earth but is not a plant, to me, could means the mushroom, the root, or both. They are the only two ingredients it doesn't specify and having to replay the game three more times with the same ending to finally get the potion right really ruined the immersion and intensity I had at the start.
Most games give a leeway for jumps when running off platforms, but this one seems to have a short range. Being used to pixel perfect platformers, myself, I found it very annoying that even though I was on the platform, if I was running too close to the edge it wouldn't let me jump. Even a pixel on the platform should be jumpable.
Maybe it's just me but this game is incredibly confusing: for the level to get the acid turret, why do I keep dying? it says black hole, but is it a time limit? am I doing something wrong? I've tried overloading them with bombers and carriers but they always match me. PLEASE give some sort of explanation of how to play. also, why does everything but the fighter bay have shortcuts?
It's so frustrating expecting your snake to follow you when you move, but having the tail stay exactly where it is, getting hit and instantly losing the game because even a single hit reduces the time too much for it to be possible to collect enough. Way too much in this game feels counterintuitive and unfair.
