Just Old stylizes itself as a “Hardcore” 2d sidescroller game. but in reality is sloppily put together glitch filled mess. Mechanics wise the game is unforgiving like it advertises, but mechanics are broken such as the rope literally detaching itself from it’s positioning while you climb. The gameplay comes off as sluggish with enemy ui and the player character’s movement speed is unbalanced and often causes unintended mistakes during your run. Functions intended to make the game “hard” instead come off as pretentious and tedious such as the no save function or restarting the game from level one every time you die.The soundtrack also grows from mildly annoying to aggravating as your deaths from stupid mechanics start to pile up. If you have some money and want to piss yourself off buy Risk of Rain 2; you’d have a lot more fun.

ABOUT THE DEVELOPER:
Hi, I’m single-minded Ryan.
I used to work as a web designer and part-time programmer. Now I’m trying become a solo game developer.
As an English learner, I consider this game to be a milestone in my English learning process.
This also means you might find the dialogue to be a little bit off or filled with a lot of mistakes.
Please help me improve this game by providing suggestions regarding the language, thanks.
achievement system doesn’t work, you can do the achievement a thousand times and it wont give you the medal.
This game is honestly grinding on your nerves…
Slow movement, confusing quests & scripts, the energy limit that basically soft locks your game and forces you to start over from the previous save once you used up the energy and hence unable to proceed through triggering conversations.
You can’t talk to the NPCs in the game when you have no energy left, or do any actions other than entering different rooms.
The game is also quite buggy in times where you have scenes suddenly being jerked across the screen before settling down and allowing a go at the minigames.

Full play through here if you get stuck or just want to see the game played:
Great game I love the noir genre so the aesthetic of this game is already a win for me it’s done pretty well and has some nice humor in it. My two main complaints is one I couldn’t find a way to make it full screen or any options for that matter and the sound puzzle this is a personal one for me because I HATE SOUND PUZZLES, unless they’re blatantly obvious I’m insanely garbage at them so full disclosure I had to cheat the one in this game which I show how to do in the video. Overall though this is a great free to play with a really nice story I loved the break in puzzles with the action scenes as well that was a super nice touch.
A fun half-an-hour experience
Loved the style and attention to details
Action sequences are a bit tough to control but there’s no tight platforming or heated situations to make it a problem
The programming is a bit rough but for a jam game it is a cool experience!
Huckleberry Fields Forever
A priceless painting has been stolen, and the only ones who can find it are Huckleberry Fields and his friends. Huckleberry Fields Forever is a platformer mystery mashup: think platformers (Super Mario World, Sonic The Hedgehog, etc.) mixed with mystery exploration games (Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego), all procedurally generated.
Chase thieves around the globe. 50+ real-world locations. Hundreds of levels.
Interview witnesses. Gather clues. Eliminate suspects.
Awesome co-op platforming action.
Mystery platformer: Classic 2D platforming action mixed with mystery and exploration. Was the thief bald? Did he wear glasses? He went boating on the Spree–where’s that? (If your geography is rusty, don’t worry, press pause and check the handy in-game reference.)
Travel the world: Catch a flight to anywhere on the globe open-world-style and visit hundreds of levels across over 50 real-world locations.
Procedurally generated: Each case is procedurally generated from meticulously handcrafted components, including the overworld maps, levels, and even the suspects.
Exploration: Secret exits, hidden rooms, invisible blocks, special items. Keep your eyes open because there’s a lot to find and discover in each and every level.
Hidden in each level are witnesses and clues. Find them to figure out what the thief looks like and where they went. Or get distracted earning coins to spend in shops, riding motorcycles, completing outdoor patches (sidequests), or even get a job. But don’t dally too long.
Huckleberry and friends have only 72 hours—about an hour in real time—to solve each case, which is perfect for a single play session. Play for an hour and actually accomplish something. Or binge your way through the whole multi-case story arc. That’s cool too.
Randomly generated cases and procedurally generated levels means no two cases will be the same. New suspects, new world maps, and new levels every case.
The world is packed with 100+ unique items to discover and collect over the course of your adventure. Upgradeable weapons, equippable shoes that provide new abilities, permanent skill upgrades, and even new characters and outfits are scattered throughout the world for you to find and play with.
Solve the case alone or with friends. Grab three of your closest buddies and work together to track down the thief. Or just hit each other with hammers and baseball bats in a frantic race to the level exit. Either way. It mostly depends on what kind of friends you have.
Moonshot - The Great Espionage
Once there was a time when 2 big Nations made a Race to Space.
The USA and the SOVIET UNION.
A time of Espionage, of Scientists and Military, of Honor and Glory.
But what if another Nation would take part into this Race?
Welcome to: MOONSHOT – THE GREAT ESPIONAGE.
MOONSHOT is an amazing and charming Retro Plattformer.
You are an Agent for a fictional Country. You get Missions, you execute them.
And that in a very nice done Pixel World that is guided by an absolut amazing Soundtrack that could have jumped out of a sixties Espionage Series.
Lovely music, lovely pixel art, funny story. The game may be a little too easy. But overall great fun and worth every cent.
