I guess you just designed the controls thinking about people playing with gamepads (and I love playing with the keyboard).

Nah, in fact it was the contrary. I really wanted a game with a console touch, without the "up to jump" feature!
That's indirectly the same... consoles don't use the "up to jump" feature because of the gamepad Smiley

Citar
And I play lots of games on my PC that uses Z and X and action buttons (I am a keyobard gamer too).

Probably because the RIGHT+UP+Z combination doesn't give the unintentional X pressing that happens with MSX machines/emulators Wink

Citar
But hey, probably it is just me, and the rest of the world hates the cursors+z+x combination...
CURSORS+X+C is almost the same and the problem I mentioned doesn't happen Wink

I prefeare the Jon option about jumping: A-> shoot   B-> jump   up-> NOTHING!  or go up on stairs.
I hate when, in some games like IOZM, when I play with my gamepad, accidentaly I push up and the guy jumps when I dont want... and sometimes it makes me lose one up!
Also, with that, the space key can rest a little more because we use it in lot of games. (X and Z are good options)
But, of course, maybe, the best option for everybody can be a "configure" option inside the game.

It seems I opened the Pandora's Box with my comment. Feel kind of guilty now Undecided

I was just wanted to show my completely personal and subjective point of view; SPACE+M (or SPACE+GRAPH or SHIFT+Z) "smells" like MSX to me, so I found weird the use of other combination.
About "up to jump", it's very uncomfortable to me (it's comfortable on cursors but unbearable with joystick/joypad), so "button to jump" is fine for me.
What about having both keys at the same time? Z and SPACE for one trigger and X and M for the other? Would it cause key shadowing problems?

Congratulations Jon!! ... It's a funny game with very pretty graphics. It has little details that make me feel like it was a game of 80's.
It seems like a Relevo's spin off of "Bubble Bobble" with Malaika in the lead role Malaika !!! . Do not take it as a bad thing Wink
Continue the good work!!  Grin

This is one of games with more professional look. Really pretty graphics, very msx, but the playability is slow and monotone, the game gets boring fast. It's not a very original idea, a bubble bobble/snow bros/... clone (original? seriously) with the Malaika sprite. Everything shows that the game has not been tested at all and another proof is that it has need two fixes already.

What is the meaning of this! police
I don't understand Espanol Wink

Oh and ZX, is great for PC (and ZX Spectrum!)... we are more used to Space + Grph. But I really don't think it's a *that* big problem, even though i was a bit confused at the titlescreen, pressing Space, Space, Enter, and then thinking "huh? no keyboard support then?"

Needless to say that graphically Malaika is very attractive, the game genre is very appealing, and both the main character and the enemies are charismatic. But... most of this very positive aspects come from a previous game.

Besides, I think the game somehow fails in the gameplay. Maybe I should play a little more, but the game didn't challenge me. Not because it is too easy, but because all I have to do to go through the game is to shoot. If I just jump a little and shoot then I go through the game. No need of a strategy. No need to think. As I said, no challenge.

In my opinion, some more testing on the game, some more complex enemy behaviors, and some more complex screens forcing the player to think and to move a little more would lead to an exciting game. But as it has been presented, it is not. Very nice and colorful and charismatic, but not challenging and, thus, not as fun as it could have been.

Hi Mr Spock, thanx for your review!! Anyway, I don't agree with your opinion. I really think the game is quite challenging, and I bet you don't finish it with no continues *that* easy Wink. I agree with you on your thought that the game is a "no brainer", but that does not make it non-challenging and non-exciting: in fact, stages keep going complex and different enemies, as jumpers, shooters or flyers, with different speeds and grades of intelligence appear during the game, in a balanced way.

I think it is a matter of taste, and you stated your opinion very clear... but I would ask you to play it a little more, in a "serious" way (no continues, etc): I bet you'll see it is not a piece of cake or something done in a rush with no work in the details Wink
