Boomerang Boy by Venturelli

made by Venturelli for LD28 (JAM)
Hi, this is a game made by two guys - Betu Souza (sound/art) and Mark Venturelli (design/code).

We work together at Behold Studios and this is the first time we team up for a game jam. It was SUPER fun, and we hope you boys and girls have fun playing this little game.

Boomerang Boy is a game about a boy and his boomerang. You only get one boomerang, so don't lose it! Also, it's a LOT of fun with two players, so make sure you try that as well. :)

* Boomerang!
* 3 playable stages + secret Golden Boomerang unlock;
* Single-player and Co-op modes;
* Full support for X360 gamepad and keyboard;
* 1080p and 60fps
* Can you become the BOOMERANG GOD?

Fun looking game! Like the frenziness. I also made a boomerang game, albeit quite different to yours! Check it out :D

Probably the best game I've played so far. Very fun and well polished. The wall climbing felt smooth and the art style is really cool. 5/5, Thanks for sharing!

crashed on me once though :(

Nice job! Feels really good to play!

Damn, that was superb. To begin with I didn't realise you could cling to walls, and I was just sat there at the bottom wondering what I did wrong. But then I figured it out and it was pure awesome. Pretty much lovely everything - had a blast!

Overall a very nice game. The game is very well polished. I did find one thing, I don't know if it is intentional, but everytime I landed after a jump, there was a small noticeable delay before I could jump again, which was a bit anoying. But all in all a very good game. Good grades from here :-)

Very nice game, playing on multiplayer is Always nice.

Very good! You guys always create very fun games. I need to learn this too! :D

Awesome job! Thank you for the gamepad support! The art style was really cool. I haven't been able to make it out of the first level. If I could offer any advice, I would say that a warning before the baddies spawn would help (me).

Well executed and fun. The flying pigs are annoying! :) Only figured out how to climb after reading comments about wall jumping though...

Very good job there! Congratulations! The controls felt a bit sluggish for me, but maybe I am having performance problem... (I don't see anyone else complaining about it). Will try multiplayer too :)

Denis, the game should run at 60fps. For some reason it sometimes runs at 30 for some people, not sure why o.O

Nice game, very, very polished.
In fact, the graphics and the music are so good that i have to damn you for that, hehehe! Nice work!

very good looking. It is a bit hard to do the platformer jumps in the beginning, but i managed to be good at!

Crazy awesome!
21. Dec 2013 · 18:45 UTC
Yay more multiplayer games!

I liked the game, especially the graphics!

Controls fell so right. The dash ability and boomerang force are sweet. Getting health to 'save' your co-op guy was genious! Awesome, you guys! Multiplayer just add the fun!
