Thanks @blekdar I appreciate the play, and great feedback. Especially at this point in development the "What I don't like's" is what I am after.
- The crusher machines are not very obvious, I was killed several times just from not noticing them. Maybe change up their color to make them more visually obvious?
The crushers have been an issue. You're right about them not being obvious enough. I notice this when watching people play the game for the first time. I like your idea on changing their colors to make them more obvious.
- It's kind of weird seeing springs almost flush with the ground, but not bouncing when you run over them. I think it would be better to place them higher up/make them thicker, so it's not as jarring running over them or jumping on them.
I'm glad you brought this up. They are one of the few things in game that haven't changed since I first implemented them. Perhaps some artwork adjusting and size changing will alleviate this. I will have to play around. I'm also curious to know if the usage of them is 'too much' At first they aided in reaching tough spots but as the game evolved, and the levels grew - the usage of them increased. Not sure if this is all that good for overall gameplay. In any event I will have to play around with them more.
Thanks again for the constructive feedback!
PS Blitz Breaker is coming along great! Love the addition of the portals.
