When Kermy Wormy’s lunar module gets swiped by a rogue asteroid and sends you crashing into an unknown planet, there’s only one thing left to do… explore deep space to collect the pieces of your spacecraft and put the pieces back together again. Collect as many crystals as you can to provide fuel for your return trip home and prevent a trip to Gastronom to refuel. That is, if you think you can gather the parts required and be ready to Rip and Dip through this uncharted, new game by Fryman Games!
Traditional W, A, S, D keys move you through the terrain of this new and undiscovered planet.

Hey there. I can only agree on what most of the others already said, it got a bit tedious after lvl 4 searching the whole map for crystals without any guiding help. And running around and searching for objects alone isn't a compelling game loop for me. I miss a bit of variety, like enemies, puzzles, or at least some variety in the tiles or anything. Could have bumped the game up quite a bit.
I liked the intro a lot. Art style was quite good. Loved the little character dude hopping around happily. Interesting implementation of a procedural level generator. Def bonus point there for the effort to balance that during a jam. Sound was decent.
Overall a solid jam entry for a solo dev.Submitted
Promising start - I hoped there would be a bit more after the crash! But, 48 hours, it's not a lot of time, so well done for doing as much as you did! The biggest issue for me was the size of the levels (/lack of a map). On level 5 I was pretty much lost trying to find the last crystals, so maybe smaller levels or a minimap would be nice, and a crystal counter! Lots of things you could do with it.
The music was good too, fit the game nicely :)Submitted
A bit of variety in the look of the different parts of the levels or some type of landmarks would really help you find your way around. Right now it all looks the same. Also some enemies, obstacles, or puzzles would give the game a better purpose. Right now there is no challenge, besides getting lost. Otherwise pretty nice. Keep it up. :)Submitted
Nice game, but I think the levels are too large. Making everything more compact would have helped out the pacing I think. Also, I got a fatal error after getting 50 things? Not sure if I did something wrong or not.Submitted
Thank you for playing! I agree that the later levels are just too large without any help on where to go next. I should have toned down the algorithm for the level size increase.
You didn't do anything wrong. Sorry for the bug! I incorrectly referenced the dialogue object. You beat the game at that point by collecting all the ship pieces and crystals.
