Hello, I am looking for games made with AppGameKit on Itch.

I have played the demo. This game  looks like retro games.  Quite exciting. If there is background music, the atmosphere will be better. The game demo actually made me remember the classic game Pac-Man. Finally, I suggest that you make a web version of the game demo. Therefore, visitors can easily try the game demo. It is because a lot of visitors are more willing to play web games.


Hi rcbasicfans,

Thanks for trying out the demo and for taking the time to leave some feedback.  The "demo" is more of an alpha version.  The full version would have quite a lot more, including music.  This alpha version was part of a contest and I ran out of time for it.

Pac-Man was an inspiration for the outside area.  I studied how the Pac-Man ghosts each had their own "personality" and tried to implement a similar idea with the wolves.

I will consider web versions for things in the future.

Hello...sorry for my late reply.

"Thanks for trying out the demo and for taking the time to leave some feedback." <--- Hey! No problem. 

"This alpha version was part of a contest and I ran out of time for it." <--- Okay! I see.

"I will consider web versions for things in the future." <-- Really good!!!

Thank you again.  Have a good 2022 as well!
