Haha, that difficulty spike is pretty funny. Just some minor difficulty with the platforms and BAM THERE'S A BIG FAST THING BEHIND ME!!

Looks pretty neat though.

I was sold at 8:40. A game like this needs Workshop support when it comes out. Looks like fun though.

Looks interesting but frustration is nothing for me. Though I can't wait to see what the speedrunning community does with this.

I just don't care about indie platformers. Actually fuck all platformers. I thought I liked them once but really I just like SOTN.

how much you wanna bet the #YOLO mode is a "do it all in one life" challenge?

This looks like the difficulty of super meat boy without any of the precision. Games where you're fighting against the controls are rarely fun.

How did they miss the point of rocket jumping so completely? The idea of a game based around Quake-like rocket jumping is awesome but replacing jumping with rocket jumping straight up is just dumb. The fun thing about rocket jumping is the crazy stuff and the mad air you can grab with it when you combine it with actual jumping, all that mixed together in a competitive environment where AI or other players are actively trying to kill you. Instead they just grabbed the short course indie 2D platformer concept and replaced jumping with rocket jumping.

Honestly disappointed.

@dstopia: Yea... except for all those people who do amazing Quake 3 rocket jump courses without enemies and with relatively little jumping once they get momentum up (depends on the course, some of them are pretty much rockets only once you moving with precision rockets). You're deciding what makes that form of control good and figuring anything that doesn't fit the original archetype is bad, without actually commenting on the subject at hand.

Why specifically does there have to be enemies to make it fun? What exactly does not having a distinct jump button affect, and if you're unhappy with your answer to that, why? They didn't just replace jumping and call it a day, they calibrated courses, made pars and timers with exacting precision and consistently introduced (as far as Brad got at least) increasingly interesting and difficult obstacles built around a specific designed movement system.

I too would have appreciated if a jump was worked into this to make it a three part movement (jump, rocket, air dash seems interesting), but as it stands it looks like a fun 2D interpretation of the original concept.

This looks pretty good. I really liked the idea behind the boss fight, basically giving you only 4 chances to slow it down if you need it but that is all you get. Good twist on the main jumping mechanic of the game and I wouldn't have expected it to be there either.

The one problem is that it looks like it requires you to master the precision of it too quickly. I think they need more levels in there before the lasers come in to slowly ramp up the difficulty.

Are you the developer behind this? If so, really cool gameplay mechanic and level design, will definitely follow this until the full release.

Game looks really fun and challenging. Shame about the #YOLO option on the main screen but you could say the same thing about the yolo gem in Divekick. Makes no difference on the game itself.

I don't know why, but I started laughing uncontrollably at the sheer difficulty spike when Brad got to the boss. I kinda wish you couldn't shoot the hand at that point, because it looks so gloriously difficult. It seemed like you could actually go the whole level without shooting the hand if you nail those jumps.
