Yes! This is the kind of feedback I need. Thanks!
Cool game intrepid. Nice idea.
I seemed to get frozen both times i played - the player got stuck in between one of the layers. To get past some bits i was moving the platforms bit by bit so the player would stay on top of it (was i cheating?)
No, I don't really see that as cheating. Yeah, getting the player stuck
inside the platforms will freeze the controls, it's gonna be fixed
in the next release.
Maybe you should restrict movement of a platform that is touching the player. Regarding the layer complications - how about pattern coding those numbers as well as colour coding. Example) the number 2 will have the same brick pattern as the platform.
Hmm, there's some good ideas. I might try what you suggested, locking out
the layer the player is currently standing on. Then regarding the
icons and the colors, I think as it is now it's fine. Were you confused
by them, like it wasn't specific enough that this color rotates this
color platform? If so, then yeah, I'll make it more specific than the colors, putting some of the patterns on the icons should make it clear.
Platforms you cant move are greyed out - but dont even give players the option to select the layer when its not movable (IE if the player hits 3 when its not movable it stays on the current number instead). This should make things a bit clearer.
Yep, I think this is what Kyatric was getting at with the feedback.
I was going to make it buzz when you tried to select/rotate a locked layer,
but having it not selectable at all will really help. Easily done, will
be in the next release. I'll also try to grey out the platforms,
although hopefully it won't be necessary.
Your post was a big help, Genki, thanks!
I like it good concept!
I did also find I sometimes got stuck in the platforms though, and was also moving it bit by bit to move myself up =P
Regarding controls, I think the keyboard plus mouse is fine, except for having to press 'Enter' for the next level as having to take my hand off the mouse is slightly annoying =)
I think I'll either add another button to move to the next level, maybe E,
or just put the key on the right MB. I'm leaning towards the RMB.
Much appreciated guys, gonna be an update soon.
