    Game With a Fantastic Title - batzerk - 48 Hour Compo Entry

    Woah, do you like music? How about hopping around little planets to make beautiful songs? If you answered either of these questions, then this is the game for YOU.

    A very simple, easy to play game I designed to make you smile! :)

    Simple colour palette and clean design. :)

    This is a really nice start for something that could grow into a truly great game. You've got a great design and sound sensibility here, but you could go much further with the gameplay.

    Tighten up the controls a little.
    Workd with multiple partners?
    Maybe have the game be timed?
    Offer a level editor?

    I really enjoyed your game. I agree that the controls were a little rough at first, and some of the platforms were hard to hit. But I definitely loved the core idea. Revealing a song was great motivation for platforming. Very strong.

    Yes, you made me smile.

    This is great! Jumping around is quite fun, graphics are lovely, and the music-thing is brilliant.

    Movement does feel a little wobbly, though.

    The idea is really clever, and it was a pleasing experience to see the music grow.

    Some of the platforming was a little fiddly (I'm mainly thinking of the tiny blue platforms on level 3 and level 5), which created a feeling of dissonance between my character and the flow of the music. I wonder whether having the character always running (like Canabalt or Bit.Trip Runner) might work better?

    Very nice concept and sound, but controls need more work, felt slippery.

    certainly interesting and cute. An original and well polished entry with a beautiful soundtrack. Loved it.

    Wow, this game is incredible, very fun to play and it's very satisfying to listen to the completed songs. It certainly deserves more comments and ratings. Too bad it has no challenge. Maybe if the planet grew and you had to step on the platforms before they sank into the land? Or maybe adding some other kind of time limit or hazards? I dunno.

    Anyway, congrats for the game and thanks for the amazing experience.

    Wow. This game brought a bigger smile to face than all the others combined. Who cares that it doesn't have challenge, sometimes you just need to play a game where you can just relax. Nice job.

    Unfortunately, the audio didn't work for me (I'm on XP32), which is a shame as it sounds like I missed out! But, I loved what I experienced anyways - I can really see this growing to full-fledged game release!

    That was excellent :D It was really fun, but some of the platforming was a bit odd for the smaller platforms.

    I like the graphics, I love the music (esp. track 5), jumping and walking is solid too... But it was rather tiring to enable all little sounds on some levels. It could be better with some kind of challenge as well, e.g. run from the line and enable all sounds in one go, so you make the whole song play as you go. Still, it's a good entry, and my first 5 stars for audio :)

    Really nice game! Enjoyed playing it a lot, the only game all LD ive given full starts to for Audio too.. My only crit is that the player model is a bit basic.
    Also the last level was my favorite tune :)

    This is a lovely little game! I was skeptical at first because there wasn't much challenge, but it is a lot of fun just to build up the music in parts and see how it all works together! With the very small notes it is sometimes difficult to reach the lower ones, as there is quite a small collision gap to fall through and you end up walking around on the higher ones.

    This is beautiful. I could play a game like this all day long. The music is also RAD. This is one of my faves. THANK YOU FOR THIS!

    great game man :)
