Hey, gave you a little review and looking forward to the finished product. Really digging the look so far:)

I stumbled upon this game on twitter. I absolutely love the art and animation, and playing through the demo was suuuper fun. This game has a lot of personality

The game's looking fantastic, although I hope a mac version is being considered and potentially added in a future update.

As an avid fan of Wario Land games and Ren & Stimpy-esque animation, this game makes for a holy grail for sure. Just finished my 2nd run (went from B-ok to A-nice), and the whole backtracking part kicks me right in the nostalgia. Even the soundtrack is based on WL4, so props to the sound guys as well. Running around looks hilarious and feels great, especially with the small wallclimbs so you don't lose your momentum.

This game is really promising, though I'd like to make a few suggestions;

  • While slapping and throwing enemies around looks great, having to stand still to attack slows down the flow of the game a bit too much. As speed is one of the main focus points in this game, I'd like to see some moves which combines the two a bit more; maybe a body slam out of a dash or an attack that ends into a run?
  • Running around max speed feels great, but some rooms don't allow for sharper turns. Maybe this was intentional, but this could be frustrating during the backtracking parts where there are enemies around since the player loses the dash attack and can't really afford to stand still for the standard attack.
  • I love the idea of WL's not being able to die but dropping you back in a level. While this is the first boss, the arena is generously large and could be slightly smaller

Other than that, I really dig this game. Once I heard the tutorial music, I was sold. Haven't encountered any bugs as well, so great job!

This game looks great! It dies when I run through the first door. MAMA MIA

it's either a problem with DirectX or your GPU in general.

Nah, my computer runs other games fine.

ok than it's DirectX. Try updating it.

Thank you frosty boy that worked! Im still getting weird graphical glitches but it doesn't crash. Anyway this game rules! I love that you don't die.

The animations and music are fantastic.

It was a very good game. I thought it had a unique concept and very good animations. wold definetly pay for a full release

Made a video

just watched trailer - looks really really nice, reminds me about adventure island series from NES and also about Cuphead

THIS IS AMAZING! is this based off of warioland 4?

(+1)(-1)

the animations and gameplay are fun to look at and the feel of the gameplay and soundtrack is definitely there. However, I think that the level layouts can be a bit confusing (what with a lot of backtracking) and could benefit from some rearrangement. Also, Some areas can't be accessed if the players make a mistake - if that is the intention, then that's fine. The throwing mechanics could probably maybe benefit from some tutorials, and it's a mild annoyance that the slap forces you to stay in one place. Overall, however, I enjoyed the game for its simplicity and ease, with a cheesy feel that actually made me consider getting a pizza.

This is amazing quality, i would pay $15-20 for a full game... GOD ITS GOOD

Dude i'd pay a full $60

I absolutely LOVE the style, I couldn't stop laughing at all the different expressions and all of the goofy characters and enemies.  I can't WAIT to buy this game!

Game got aloot of potential, animations are smooth and the gameplay is fun. I think the layout of the levels could get worked on to fit the momentum of the dash more and it would certianly be a top tier platformer

Did you go to school for animation, or are you a professional animator? The animations in this game are incredibly well done.

Absolutely loved this. Would gladly buy a full game in this style.

Wow, these animations are insane!

One of the best games I have ever played on itch.

Hmmm, that's a spicy meatball

Can't wait for this to become best selling pizza game of all time and sell more than Family guy and Undertale combined

Yo this stuff is super solid, i can't wait for everyone else to pick it up.

Alright universe, you win! I'll stop my no-video streak to cover this. 

Hope you don't mind a paisano let's play!

EDIT: Wait, how do I reset save data?

Super great game with fluid mechanics. This could definitely turn out to be a real hit with some polish. The speed feels great, the momentum feels great, and the gimmicks are all very goofy and enjoyable! The one real problem I have with this is how terrible the karate chop feels since it takes so much to incapacitate an enemy and for how long it keeps you in place. It feels much better to just run nerds over.

WOW! Love the artwork. It looks like something I would have played on the SNES back in the day!

How do I run it? There is no runnable as far as I can see.

very good!!!

Very fun plaformer.

I absolutely love the main character and the enemies. They have such a unique look and personality, they are so alive! For me that is one of the most important things to do in a platformer.

fantastique. bon apetite!!
