Love Update #8, The Big One



Love has been on Steam for 365 days, and what better way to celebrate than to release a sizable update?

  • Love now has 16 levels in the main game.
  • Now included: Remix mode. 7 remixed or unused levels added under
  • New Leaderboards for High Score and Speedrun Mode
  • New Scoring metrics. The faster you are, the better your score truly will be.
  • Analog control support for XInput Controllers. Nudge the joystick to move more slowly.
  • Previous levels given a little more polish and attention.
  • Some animations fixed and smoothed
  • Updated credits section
  • Updated menus

I hope this update finds you well on Valentine's Day, and more updates and tweaks will be forthcoming. The main game is now finished, but I'll be adding more to the Remix Levels and Level Select in the future.

What else have I been doing with my time? Well, I have a podcast that updates every week, and a YouTube series that updates every day. Give Lone Stars a watch!

Acerca de este juego

Love is a reductive platforming game with a retro aesthetic and a focus on a challenging difficulty. It has an custom respawn system, 16 levels, 12 track soundtrack, competitive scoring, and a simple-to-use level creation feature.

The challenging levels are balanced with the inclusion of a simple yet unique respawn system wherein the player can leave a checkpoint at any location at any point, as long as they are on solid ground. Players have a number of gameplay modes to choose from, whether they want it easy, normal, or they want to try their hand at a mode designed specifically for Speed Running.

Beyond the visual aesthetic, the challenging level design, and the abundance of features, there is the fantastic soundtrack composed by James Bennett, which brings the simple 3-color atmospheres to life.

¿Qué es “Love”?, Nena no me lastimes. No me lastimes, no más ♫
Ok, eso fue horrible.

Love (a pesar de tener un título que se contrapone bastante con el sentimiento que va a florecer en el jugador) es un plataformero minimalista que se basa en superar una serie de obstáculos por tan sólo 12 (más 3 especiales) de longevidad muy corta que en tan sólo unos segundos puede ser superado. ¿Cuál es la trampa?, fácil: es uno de esos plataformero que te ponen situaciones al mejor estilo de Super Meat Boy, VVVVV o I Wanna Be The Guy. Sin embargo, y para mi sorpresa, es mucho más delicado y disfrutable.

Los 12 niveles estarán repletos de trampas, picas y pozos que van a poner a prueba toda tu habilidad de tus dedos, y teniendo en cuenta que en el modo Estándar tendremos un total de 100 vidas para perder, se crea una sensación de presión constante para el jugador. A pesar de que parece ser un número importante, morir en Love es más fácil de lo que parece, y aun peor cuando nos topamos con situaciones desprevenidas.

Habrá otros modos dónde por ejemplo nos sacan la limitación de vidas (Modo Fácil) para practicar un poco, el Speedrun (vidas infinitas) para realizar el mejor tiempo posible y el Modo YOLO aka “Sólo Vives Una Vez”, donde es autoexplicativo siendo uno de esos desafíos que podrían completarse para los AGDQ.

Desde el apartado gráfico, muy poco se puede decir ya que parece más a un juego de la segunda generación de consolas aunque lo compensa con una jugabilidad sólida cuyo resultado es optimo para hacer saltos casi milimetrados pero en ocasiones los inputs (sobre todo cuando jugamos con un gamepad) tienen que ser muy delicados, por lo que hay que tener cuidados especiales en ese asunto.

Fuera de ello es un entretenido plataformero sádico (poco) para pasar el rato o perfeccionar todos sus niveles... cosa que... bueno, no soy muy bueno.


7/10

juego de plataformas sidescroller horizontal que recuerda a un juego de la Atari de los años 80 un juego muy primitivo en esencia pero que a mi sencillamente me ha enganchado y he estado juagando,existen diversos modos de juego, modo arcade te dan 100 vidas para completar los 16 niveles de los que consta el juego,algo corto en realidad,modo facil vidas ilimitadas, y otro modo mas ademas existe un juego modificado con niveles nevos basados en los anteriores con un cierto grado de difuicultad mas elevado si cabe, en definitiva un juego de aspecto retro que no ha sabido bien envejecer con los años pero recomendable a los amantes de las plataformas con controles algo toscos, tiene compatibilidad media con controlador es decir el mando de xbox es compatible lo que ameniza un poco la jugabilidad

Un juego de plataformas difícil con estética de un juego de Atari que me ha dado un par de tardes entretenidas. Si lo compras barato, es una buena adquisición

Rock solid controls. Good music. Cohesive art direction. Start to finish it's about 10 minutes long. Great for competing with bros.

Although Love is a short game and isn't particularly difficult to beat, there's something about the way the art style, music, and game mechanics all work together that makes it quite memorable and fun to play. Your little sprite has a breezy running motion that makes certain sections feel quite fluid, the level design is simple and attractive, and the soundtrack is alternately calming and tense. The bright colours and rows of spikes gave me VVVVVV vibes sometimes too.

As for replay value, the scoring/rank system gives you some incentive to try for more challenging playthroughs, and the YOLO and speedrunning modes offer different options as well. The ability to select individual levels to play (after you beat the game) is particularly useful for practise.

Overall this is one of my favourite games aesthetically, and I always end up spending a little more time on it than I intend to. It's short enough that it doesn't feel like a big commitment, but has enough little achievements that it can appeal to those with a perfectionist streak too.

It is a minimalistic platformer with pretty good controls and nice music. That is everything a good platformer needs.

The difficulty is good, I played a lot of other platformers and i could just barely finish the game with 10 lives left of the initial 100 lives that you get on normal mode. There are a couple of "leap of faiths" in the game but generally the game is pretty fair especially nice is that the timing puzzles (megaman blocks) have a visual clue.

The game is rather short, i finished the game in 1324 seconds that is about 22 minutes. There are some achievements and secrets but i think the replay value is rather low, there is a mode with infinite lives, and a mode with just 1 life as well as a speedrun mode but i think they all play on the same set of levels.

Maybe not a game i would buy at full price because it is so short but if you like platformers and the game is on sale go for it.

I may not love Love, but I dig it quite a bit.

Nice music and solid platforming which demands a high degree of precision in order to progress even with the alloted 100 lives. The distinctive retro aesthetics make this an easy recommendation for genre fans, especially given the low price which is absolutely worth it in this fella's opinion.

A simple, yet rather fun platformer. Indeed, it is quite the short game, as I was able to complete it in one session, about a half hour long. That said though, I'm a believer in quality over quantity. I've noticed this game to be quite difficult, as I lost most of my lives in my playthrough, but it wasn't impossibly nor frustratingly difficult. Perhaps it was a lovely music or nostalgia from old-school gaming that took frustration away. I'm someone who grow up with the old games, so I think this is a nice trip back to the past, but with a few modern things added to it to give it a bit more flavor. All in all, I enjoyed my session with this game and wouldn't mind giving it another go eventually, whether on a day I'm just bored and want some fun or have a challenge at going at the game with just one life.

This game sucks all the love from you, and leaves you wondering how you have failed to make that single jump the last three times.

This is seriously one of the cutest, thoughtful, concise but effective games I've ever played for the price point. It's synonymous with a simplified VVVVVV without the gravity reversal feature and substantially shorter. This is absolutely worth checking out. Excellent game!

A fun and simple platformer game. It's a LOVE for me.
Nothing worth mentioning anymore cause you don't need a reason to love someone.
It's just "LOVE".

This deceptively simple and basic platformer is an absolute delight. After playing and beating the game in about 20 mins, I went on to playing it again, and again and again and again. The soundtrack is superb and the gives the game a feeling of depth and meaning. It's a platformer in the truest sense and it it's immensly enjoyable. I have gifted about ten copies of this game to people whom have all loved it. Buy Buy Buy, for the low asking price, it's silly not to own this this gem.

Who the ♥♥♥♥ caps a game like this at 30fps? Killer OST and I dig the Aesthetic, but come on. I still kinda recommend it.

"Love" is a fast paced, hard, and fun retro 2D platformer that justifies it's $2.99 USD price tag. If you want a good time, even if it's very short (having only 12 levels), I reccomend you pick this title up. It has an okay soundtrack, but nothing out of the ordinary. It's graphics are incredibly simple and retro. They'll remind you of something right out of an Atari 2600.

There are also multiple modes for you to play, and while it's not reeking with replayability, the variety will keep you playing for a while. There's an "easy" mode with unlimited lives, "standard" mode with 100 lives, "YOLO" mode which speaks for itself, and a "Speedrun" mode, which is for those people that just gotta go fast. And did I mention there is even a level creator?

The controls are generally okay, but the character's overall unconfortably fast speed, overly tight jump, and unresponisve jump will make you fall off platforms like an idiot a lot. It's not that irriatating of a game to control, but it's noteworthy.

Another issue is that even though the game runs at a smooth 30fps throughout the entire time I played a single run, the game can look irritably jittery while you are moving quickly. This makes the speedrun mode even harder to control and judge where you are going to land after you jump. I make an already notibly hard experience, a bit harder.

PROS:
+Okay soundtrack
+Simple retro visuals
+Multilple game modes
+Level Editor

CONS:
-Irritably jittery framerate
-Mediocre controls

Score: 7/10
