Hi there! This is a small demo i made up today because i need some feedback on this small game. I have some ideas to expand it, but if you have some more, say it! Oh and also tell me if something on the tutorial doesn't make sense, i'm not a native english speaker.

This has lots of charm already!

Especially the various effects look well done and the presentation is overall already very pleasing to the indie eye (title screen!).

What I'm not entirely sure about is how to play this successfully (in spite of the tutorial XD). It's very easy to drop down and "bam!" the game is over, hehe.

Also nice to have a wizard jumping around in a shoe, akin to Super Mario Bros 3. That can't come from any other place, right?

Will try to play some more, looking forward to future versions!

Btw your working title Boot Wizard makes me think of an application to change the OS on startup, rather than a game. PixelRebirth2011-07-30 14:24:20

It looks very polished, everything works as it should. I have mixed feelings from it, it looks good, nice effects, but I haven't used them much. They come too easy and there is lot of them, I didn't know what scrolls/tomes do. There isn't much of a challenge, I was just pressing left/right and sometimes up/down, but there was no timing, I just wanted to see how an effect looks like rather than to help me get rid of bugs or whatever it should do.
I'll wait for next versions, good luck!

That sure is inspired by SMB3! It was one of my favorite things in the game, but there was only a few levels where you could get the boot.

I feel the tutorial isn't very clear yet, and doesn't really reflect the intended gameplay, but i'll work on that.

@PixelRebirth: i knew someone would comment about that name haha! I was planning to change it, but thinking of names is harder than i though, so i just put up the [working title] XD

Anyway, thanks for the feedback guys! Getting back to work!

This game was awesome, it reminds me from Cave Story.

I suggest you this game should to have sprite fonts because the main menu its text looks blurred for some reason.

Oh, i also see the font didn't work. It seems that SpriteFont is the way to go then, i'll put it on the to-do list right now.

And also thanks for the kind comments guys!
