Holy crap, this game is amazing.
Hehe, thanks a lot :D
The visual design is great and it's a pretty cool concept but I honestly cannot play it because of the music. It sounds like an insane deaf person has made it.
I have to admire the ambition at doing a a collection of mini games for a game jam, since I tried it myself last Ludum Dare. The lesson I learned from that was... never again : P
Seems like you had the same problems we had then, the art style felt a bit uneven and unpolished, both on each individual game and when you think of it as a whole troughout the collection.
I really feel that the block game could have been much more interesting on it's own, with more thought out puzzles, perhaps a slightly different art style and more audio. I was missing audio as a whole? Everything felt very empty, and I feel that som ambient sounds and music would have helped to tie everything together better.
Especially having a unison sound style troughout several different games would have really tied them all together a bit better.
But it was still pretty nice for a game jam! Have seen (and made!) worse! Good luck on future projects.
Yeah, I don't think we'll do a mini game collection again if we collaborate for another game jam, but now at least I can say that I did one! My favorite game out of the group was also the block game and I think it could have been a standalone game as well if it was fleshed out more. That, and the shooting mini-game.
We didn't have enough time to get stuff like music in on time, it was one of those things that we're kicking ourselves for 10 minutes after the deadline.
Thanks for the review dude. As an added note, I played your game when it was first submitted, and I really liked it! I'm impressed that you were able to do that much in 48 hours. Keep it up!
