    A Really Big Rock (Compo Release) - NateNaterson - Competition Entry

    A Really Big Rock is a simple puzzle-platformer about a young man named Jer and a really big rock that you can use to break things and crush the skulls of your enemies!

    NOTE: I plan on adding more content and a "proper" ending later, possibly during the Jam. The game itself is fully working and has a decent amount of fun content thus far. I hope you enjoyed it, I really worked hard!

    Very nice, fun, and good looking. The rock physics were great and I had no problems with it at all. I also like the little "comic style" cut scenes at the beginning of the game

    Carrying this very big rock is booooriiiiiiing. But that's precisely the fun of the game! Well done, and : lol.

    Really solid work! Looks and plays great! And one of the first I've tried with a fairly good tie in to the theme. Only crit would be that the hitboxes for the spikes are a bit easy to hit which makes you die a lot of cheap deaths.

    I get to a Mediafire screen and see nothing to click to download it.

    Heheh, amusing!
    Nice job basing it all around something so undeniably useless/cumbersome.

    The cut scene was a little long, but once the game got going I enjoyed it. You added new elements at a very nice pace.

    I really like the vibe this one is giving off. Really cool use of the physics for the most part.

    Slippery character movement made navigation a bit tricky.

    First time through got stuck on tut.3, couldn't toss the rock out of the hole.

    I liked the cutscene. Got stuck at that first button for the longest time trying to throw the rock up that hill...

    I like how the tiles shake when the rock falls.
    Great game.

    Nice cutscene and good gameplay and graphics!

    The jiggling tiles whenever you drop the rock really give it a feeling of great weight :P!
