This game doesn't ask anything of the player; there are no split-second decisions. You should never lack choice entirely. There's only one platform I can jump to at any given time. It's not fun...I guess you said this game is for relaxation. That's not a valid reason to have people play your game. Youu have to do something to motivate the player to keep on playing.
Tedious, not fun.
This is a great concept and I like it a lot. I voted for it on Steam Greenlight (how much will it cost?) and I have some feedback. The dictionary seemed pretty expansive-- often I was able to create words I didn't know existed-- but I typed in "yid" (which I guess could be offensive) and it was not accepted. Was this word left off on purpose? The word "porn" was accepted...
For thenoodge, maoi is not a word, however moai (mo'ai) is.
I think that the idea of an endless mode would be interesting, being entirely randomized with bosses making appearances, chests, merchants, etc. There would be rewards the further in you make it.
A time attack would also be possible, with you getting time for beating enemies and whatnot.
I was able to type "Miyagi," but nothing happened. I don't know what I was expecting.
Thank you for the detailed review, and thank you for voting on Greenlight! The game is currently available at www.letterquestgame.com in early access for $7.99, and we're still deciding on a final price for Steam.
"yid" was intentionally left off due to it being considered slang and offensive to some people. There are several hundred (some pretty obscure!) racial slang words we left out intentionally. "porn" was left in because it's not an offensive term, we view it the same as words like "sex", "testicle", etc. - they are real words that should hopefully not offend anyone. We also left out all known swear words.
Maoi is not really a word, it's an acronym for monoamine oxidase inhibitors, but I added it to the game's dictionary anyway. :)
Great ideas for the endless mode, it's something we're looking into, just trying to find the time (our company is just two people!).
As for "miyagi", I may add that as a bit of an easter egg. I already added the names of lots of Game of Thrones characters, and some other pop culture references just for fun.
EDIT: decided "miyagi" was too good to pass up, so added it to the dictionary. It will be in a future update. Here's proof! ;)
I LOVE THIS GAME. The only thing that annoys me is the fact that you put falling damage in this game, but that's just the difficulty that makes it great. Really amazing job, I look forward to seeing more of your work. I think that it was quite enjoyable when *splat* Pardon me, I said it was quite enjoyable when *splat* IT WAS QUITE *splat* *splat*
My name is Griffin. Holy shiet.
Nice work, totally going to try this. The medals also work.
This game is really fun and provides a great challenge. I don't care if it's ripped off, I don't give a flying Clockday because this game is fun. You can't doubt that.
Also really hard.
This game was a great idea, it's fun to play, customizable- I can't ask for anything more!

South Park reference?
OK Game, but bad capability.
The game overall was good, but the only things the player could do was walk, jump, and dash, (Which did not provide much help, a glide feature would have been better) and that there was not much to the game.
Overall, OK, though.
