very nice and impressive!
but there is something that gets me, on the bottom right of the map, I crush those bricks and I stay stuck there D: will there be use for this? or just to be a trap and that shows a glitch when you try jumping in the hole?

lol, that's because that place is intended for a door in the future... You aren't supposed to come back up once you reach this point in the game! Note that at first, Gelman wont be able to break the bricks to get there since he wont have the necessary moves to do so. Also, the rocket move will be used in combination with a special block type later, so you can get out of things like these. OR maybe I should simply make it so when the rocket collides, Gelman goes in jump gel mode instead of crush gel mode, does this sound better?

Anyway, thanks for commenting!

Isn't there any other opinions out there??? I like opinions! Seriously, don't hesitate to comment! I'm looking for as much feed back as I can so I can steer this project in the best direction possible. Even the smallest comments will be appreciated!

Also what I would like to see, is like a menu where you can choose options and be able to set some movements. Like Super Metroid or something

You mean like being able to set your own keys? Well, I think it might be a little late because of the way I programed the moves, but it wouldn't be impossible, just a lot of work. Thanks for the opinions!

to Jimmy: Thanks! That means a lot to me.

to Gogo: I don't know if I can integrate that option... The moves and the way they work will have some puzzle sovling values later, so if I give too much freedom, people will be bound to find unwanted detours in the game and possibly causing themselves bugs... But I am willing to give some leeway, I think I will make some optional (possibly secret) moves/alterations available by doing certain things in-game. Thanks for the idea though!

You actually got out ?! :shock: I guess the game must have glitched then... The intention was to actually not be able to get out and having to go through a door at the bottom of it. Good work Freddy!

Oh, I wanted to know how you guys like the title screen's music. I made it, the 3rd tune I ever made. I think it sounds really odd, am I a hopeless case?

The music is ok, i never really noticed it untill you said something, but i agree it kind of sounds awkward :)

I've just added the possibility of jumping out of rocket mode and an attack while in cube mode. I haven't updated yet since these changes are not significant enough yet... Just thought I'd let you guys know!
