Love Update #10 - Making Life Easier


Just pushed through another minor patch. There's been an outcry about the difficulty of the Gotta Go Fast achievement, so I've increased the time from 10 minutes to 12 minutes. Also, I've dug through old archived folders and found some slightly higher quality source audio for the game, so you might notice that James' gorgeous tones are the slightest bit cleaner and sweeter.

So actual patch notes:

  • Improved Audio
  • Gotta Go Fast Achievement increased from 10 Minutes to 12 Minutes

Love Update #9, The One Where I Fix Stuff

Hey everyone, this is a really minor update, but it fixes two key things.

  • Fixed a bug where some users noticed horrific slowdown with SteamWorks enabled.
  • Fixed a bug where all grade achievements would be unlocked for failing. (Sorry)

I'd love to get feedback on this update if you can take a moment to do so.

In unrelated news, we've launched a new podcast, and we're dying to get people to check it out. Find Lone Stars on iTunes or right here.

What a great retro-style platformer. Quite a surprise...

Extremely fluid controls, solid and challenging level design. Sound and music are perfectly suited and not annoying.

For something basic, this is really about as good as it gets. Recommended to any fan of 2D platformers.

I was suckered in by the tag Great Soundtrack. It seems I'm in the minority who doesn't agree the soundtrack is all that fantastic. The platforming is mildly well designed at best, and certainly doesn't hold a candle up to a game like Super Meat Boy, for instance. There definitely aren't enough levels to keep me coming back for too long.

Well, for all that I have to gripe about it, it's still only $3, and I bought it at $1 in a sale, so frankly for the price tag there's very little to complain about. You still get a good amount of entertainment for your money, and the one song in the soundtrack worth the tag Great Soundtrack is indeed Great. Take a listen to Kid, it's well worth your time.

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".

While it is yet another retro-style platformer, it's a good one that reminds me of old Commodore 64 favorites such as Jumpman and Pharaoh's Curse. It's challenging in places but not overly frustrating. Nice music, too.
