Cave of Black

Version 1.0.0.0

by 2DManiac
First published on 21st March, 2016

Jorney through the Cave of Black as a small ball of ink. Try to avoid obstacles and destroy those that can't be avoided by shooting ink at them. Collect as much ink as you can and last as long as possible, so that you can get an high-score to make you proud of.

Thank you for playing the game, any feedback is greatly appretiated.
This game is my entry for the rikoshe game jam.

    Great game, although it was not clear to me that you could hold the mouse button - seems obvious now though!

    Hm, thank you for the feedback I will specify that on the instructions screen. I thought that "Touch and Hold" would be intuitive :P

    It's a good game,nice background and foreground,gameplay is fluid.What I would suggest is changing up the character you play as,he looks much less detailed compared to the rest of the game (no clue how though and it's just my opinion).
    Had fun.

    @Darkeyed

    Thank you for the feedback! I'm glad you enjoyed the game :)
    Maybe you are right regarding the character, but I will keep it because it has personal meaning and I think it has the design that suits the gameplay itself best, being a simple round form makes it easier for the player to calculate its distance from the obstacles, it also represends a drop of ink underwater :P
    Still, thank you for the suggestion, it's highly appretiated :)
