Nice. You totally changed game's difficulty from impossible to challenging, I appreciate that! I've fully completed current version. Mechanics are fun, but it still needs more polishing. I recommend you to do more experiments with mechanics, because sometimes new bosses act like the previous ones. My favourites are Craigy Cactus (finally new ideas and interesting phases) and Warping Proffesor Pancake (totally one of the hardest in-game bosses, but still it's possible to beat him). Also I think you should draw sprites of big objects (like bosses) in higher resolution. Craigy Cactus is awesome boss, but it's a bit upset his resolution is low. And you need to find a way to spend coins, otherwise they are meanless. I suggest you to add shop. There you can buy something, character skins, for example. Anyway, wish you good luck with further development. Keep it up that challenging but still fun and always increase game level, always try to find better ideas and draw objects with higher resolution.

What's your favourite zone? And was the flying and shooting section good?

September 17, 2017

I liked shooting section,

September 17, 2017

My favorite section is «Outback Zone»

September 17, 2017

Also here is the full list of zones that will be in the final game

Bottomless beginnings zone Oak hill Mountain lab Industries zone Bounce back to the outback zone Frosty Farmland Zone Grassy groove Luncheon launch zone Bottle cap brewery Zone Aqua adventure Zone Metal world Clowntown circus Zone Maniacal monolith Zone

Final boss and ending

September 17, 2017

Cool.

September 17, 2017

There will be 12 zones in total each with two bosses and the game will have a final boss

September 17, 2017

I don't know if a coustume shop could be added due to conflicts with character animations but I could add a shop that unlocks new game modes or something. Maybe I could use coins as something you need enough of to unlock the last 2 worlds out of the 12 there will be before the final boss.

Oh boy, this game is hyperPad Super Meat Boy!

August 23, 2017

Is it?

August 23, 2017

Do you find it that difficult or what

August 23, 2017

Well ok it's not that difficult but current controls make you bounce off walls with crazy speed sometimes, and swipes doesn't make Melon move to the direction needed sometimes. Like I swipe left, but he keeps moving to the right.

August 23, 2017

Also are the bosses good?

August 23, 2017

Their realization is very good, however I think you should add more variation of their behavior. I mean, all what Professor Pancake does is just moving at you; maybe you should think about their behaviors to make the more interesting, add phases of their logic.. But the game is good by itself, I wish you to be able to imrpove it to a hyperPad masterpiece!

August 23, 2017

Wanna colaberate??

August 23, 2017

Maybe, I'm quite busy with my own game developing, but I can share with you some ideas.

August 23, 2017

Alright then, the next zone by the way is mountain lab industries, which is a Laboratory inside a big mountain. One of the bosses will be a robot clown.

August 23, 2017

Added the new zone!

August 24, 2017

The new zone is complete! Tell me what you think after you play it

August 24, 2017

I can't defeat Lumber-jocker, he is too strong!

August 24, 2017

Good god! Make sure you lead him to the wood... keep doing it over and over!

August 24, 2017

Did an update! Made him a bit easier to fight!

August 24, 2017

Stopped him?

August 24, 2017

Fixed the boss and made him easier and did a bit of bug fixing. Tell me your thoughts on the new zone if you end up defeating lumberjoker

August 24, 2017

Have you killed him?

August 24, 2017

I wasn't able to defeat him fairly lol.. Had to download the game and make this guy die in one sec.. But the next bosses are really hard, I don't know how to defeat them. This game is really as difficult as Suler Meat Boy, and maybe even more difficult.. The main problems are 1. There are no saves (you can just create a label, use a number. First level completed - the label is 2, so it will load level 2 (but don't forget to add «New game» button to reset the number to 1)); 2. Lots of bugs.. Bosses can push you through the wall, Melon always moves to the right so it's harder to swipe to the left, some collisions seem like wrong, sometimes you die even if the boss is defeated, sometimes you die for some unknown reasons though there are still some lifes left.. Also there are some physical bugs.. So, you need to polish your game, really concentrate on fixing bugs. Good luck with that stuff, I think there is a lot of stuff to do.

August 24, 2017

Which bosses are you having trouble with?

August 24, 2017

Lumber-joker and all next bosses

August 24, 2017

Are they hard ore do you not know how to kill them. And which ones have you killed?

August 24, 2017

Saving has now been added! You can load zones and if you need to wipe your data you can, by going into the options menu! Also I added a pause screen!

August 24, 2017

Test out the new save feature and tell me what you think!

August 25, 2017

Fixed some bugs, added saving and unlocking zones plus the ability to remove save data

August 25, 2017

Fixed a major saving bug! Now saving fully works

September 16, 2017

Added a brand new zone and a lot of polish to the game overall! Hope you enjoy

August 22, 2017

Did you make the music yourself?

August 23, 2017

Yep

August 23, 2017

What did you use to create it? It's pretty good

August 23, 2017

Garage band

August 23, 2017

Also is the game itself and the graphics good?

August 23, 2017

The cutscenes are great but sometimes the text goes by too quickly. The controls are sometimes confusing, in the first boss battle I ended up bouncing on the wall and couldn't stop. But I do love the graphics, there good, this game might need a bit of improvement but other then that, this is a good game (:

August 23, 2017

I might make the text slower then.I was trying to do the cutscenes classic sonic style where it's told through movement but I thought it would be a bit too hard.

August 23, 2017

Also how far did you actually get in the game?

August 23, 2017

I made it to the second boss, that pancake just won't give up lol

August 23, 2017

To beat the second one, hit him on the head

August 23, 2017

Ok thanks, it was confusing what parts hurt you and what parts damage him. Thanks

August 23, 2017

And for the next two bosses, for the lumberjoker kill the clowns and then lead the lumberjoker to the wood to hit it so that when it's broken and he stands on it he falls. For professor pancakes wood rippers hit him but don't hit him too much as when you hit him he hurts you and you hurt him. You have to balance your health with his

August 23, 2017

Ok got it

August 22, 2017

How do I start the game. The so obvious start button does nit start the game

August 22, 2017

Press the button, then you are greeted by the menu, press play and it starts

August 22, 2017

Hoped that helped.

August 22, 2017

Dude it doesn’t do anything when I press it. And yes I tried rapid touching

August 22, 2017

It works for me...

August 22, 2017

Maybe try closing hyperpad or branch the project. Everyone else in the comments seems to have played the game

August 22, 2017

Also what are you pressing the play button or start button?

August 22, 2017

Start button

August 22, 2017

Oh ok. When you just press it with the flat of your thumb I guess and wait for it to fade to the next level

August 22, 2017

Or branch the project. No one else seems to be having issues

August 22, 2017

Weird, when you tap as well it should also play a sound effect

August 22, 2017

Tell me once you have solved the issue

August 22, 2017

Solved?

August 21, 2017

Pretty nice, you should improve controls a bit, my Motor Melon always moves right even when I swipe left. I think this could be great game if you'll come up with original (and cool) levels using your mechanics. You can add new power-ups and abilities as player progresses through the game.

August 21, 2017

It's an interesting game, but I couldn't quite figure out the control scheme. It's very energetic and I like it.

August 21, 2017

Motor melon always moves right. You can tap to jump and swipe the screen left to dash to the left. swipe the screen right to get closer to the right.

August 22, 2017

But is Motor melon always supposed to be moving forwards?

August 22, 2017

Yep
