  • I just posted my first finished Construct2 game up at Clay.io. I started this about two weeks ago, worked on it in my spare time and it took just over 20 hours to complete.

    Let me know what you think! Can you collect 500 honeycomb? :)

  • It looks quite nice, and the choice of music is great (actually, I realized I might as well use something old enough to be in a public domain in my own game). The gameplay is sort of easy though - while you collect the first dozen honeycombs there's not much at stake.

  • Niko Thank you for checking out the game, and for your kind words. I will look into having the game start out a little more difficult and ramp up from there. I have some other ideas on how to make it more engaging early on as well. For me, it is most fun at about 300+ honeycomb. Thanks again for your feedback. :)

  • I admit I only got to 271 honeycombs so far, but if I may, here's a few suggestions: add enemies that have a smaller size change amplitude, but instead move from one point to another (and later on enemies that maybe chase your for some time?) Also, a sort of super-honeycomb, which gives, say, 10 honeycombs at once, but only appears for a short period of time might be nice to make it more dynamic.

    I hope that doesn't sound too mean - I know what it's like to receive suggestions when you yourself if you know where to move the game yourself, although I haven't really finished my main project yet, but I've already got a lot of suggestions from friends, and they were wildly different.)

  • Niko LOL, funny enough based on your previous feedback, and others that I have gotten, last night I added a super honeycomb (worth 10) and re-balanced the speed at which the game ramps in difficulty. I have not added 'seeking' flowers, but I might look into that. There are already flowers that 'move'. Actually, all of them do once you get to 200 I think.. I will have to check on that. Right now, it is really easy and fast to get to 200-300. Last night I was able to get over 600, in a couple minutes, which is what I was going for anyways.

    I was in the middle of fixing the leaderboards (another suggestion of yours) and some other small details last night before I got too tired. I will finish those changes up tonight and upload a new version.

    Thank you so much for your feedback, it has been very helpful. If you have any other suggestions, please don't hold back. I can take any criticism. This goes for anyone else reading this as well. I am not making this for myself, but for everyone else to enjoy! :)

  • A new version of A Storybook Garden has been posted. The level progression has been ramped up a bit, so getting to higher levels should be easier. There is a new 10x honeycomb that helps accomplish this.

    Please check it out, and let me know what you think!


  • Zharzew Post that on Clay.io aswel so people there know it is updated.

    (yes i'm the same mrPeanut as on clay.io)

  • Gotta say it's become more fun now with those x10 honeycombs.
