DARTHY development is on hold for a while

So sorry to say DARTHY development is on hold while my son rests, he had a seizure and had to have emergency brain surgery to relieve pressure from blood in his brain.

He is doing very well but just needs rest. We won't know if the bleeding fully stopped for a couple of weeks as he has a ct scan.

Will update when my kids and i are able to work on DARTHY again.

We are lowering the price until we can start working again and have a big update to upload.

cheers
Collin

Really a Gem of a platformer among the 3000 different platformer on steam.

You are a robot head call DARTHY that woke up in robot hospital and found out the whole world changed. every good robot soul are now traped in coins and you need make it to the end while save as many robot soul as possible.

Infinite Restart, Crude but cool graphics, Awesome music that I really like and get me into the mood of jumping!!

The whole game is not long.. just a bit longer then 2 hours to finish for me. (i lost count how many times i died though).

There are still a few bugs or issue needs to be fixed.
1. the Security balls that goes around and around sometime hides in the shadow too well and by the time you see them. You are already dead.. really cheap and unpreventable death. (maybe make those pesty balls glow a faint red aura in the dark?
2. When u control the rocket the ship the control is really bad. You want to be able to control your speed better yet with the sensibility you have right now for movement it's too crazy to handle..

Other then that awesome game.. I heard the story of developer's kid has fallen ill. God bless him and hopefully he will recover soon!

8.5/10.. a hidden gem of a platformer that platform lover will love a lot! Who else want to see robot head fly?

DARTHY is a game that I recommend because:
- is a method to banish boredom
- it has a good price
- it is indie & casual
- it has trading cards

Enjoy!

This game is insanely terrible for the $0.99 price tag attached to it.

EDIT:

I'm going to explain why this game is not worth its price. Darthy is a decent game but putting a one dollar price tag on it is just a sacm really. My only real problem with Darthy is the terrible level design

EDIT:
I really tried to give this game a chance but I all that ends up happening is me finding more problems with the game such as: horrendous hitboxes, random glitches, the incredibly sensitive rocket controls(which I should've mentioned in my last edit).

To keep it real simple I paid a whopping $0.49 for a disapointment.

Consider this my last edit I'm deleting this game and hope to never be idiotic enough to put money into a beta-equivalent and 50% finished game.

Goodbye.

I've enjoyed this quite a lot. Even though it sends me into spiraling hate of my life and all the enemies in the game are rage inducing to no end. Personally I'm not a perfect fit for rage game, but DARTHY really pulled me in and continued to encurage me to keep going. Man it messes with you so much by leading you in so many wrong directions. Just need to keep going...keep playing...keep dying... *cries in corner*

DARTHY, a fun and challenging game

-This review is short because I have a very small amount of information to go on, will change in time-

DARTHY, a game created by 'Collin, Kaleb, & Jeya'. It's a nice change-up from the games I normally play, and I can definitely say I want to see more. A mobile port would be nice, too :)


GAMEPLAY:
The gameplay is fine, I have run into some problems whilst playing, but nothing game-breaking (as of yet). The level design is alright, it's not going to make you 'awe' in amazement, but it is fun enough to keep you tied to your chair for an hour or so (depending).

STORY:
DARTHY, who'd just woken up, has to save her 'friends', bound robots; each of these robots are trapped inside of a coin (golden doubloon) waiting to be saved, and it is up to DARTHY whether to save them or not. Will you ignore your friends plea's for help, or will you save them, allowing their souls to go to 'Robot Heaven'(?).

8.3/10

Although I don't have much to go on (not to mention I'm having 'writer's block'), I can say this game is pretty good at what it's intended for. Would be better off in the app store.
