This is a very good game.
Glad it made it on Steam. There seems to be a lack of old school platformers these days - it's all puzzle/platformers, punishment platformers, endless runners, crafters, etc.

Indeed, indeed! It is really great! I'm happy to be able to retry it on steam! Congrats to the devs! Will check out your other games, hopefully!

Yea, I love this game 'cos it reminds me the original Rayman in terms of gameplay - it's just simple, solid platforming - the graphics are great too, I wonder if I get a Steam key for my previous purchase? If not, I'll buy it here again :P it's cool they've added Steam Achieves and Cards.

Well, I'm sure the Groupees Build-A-Greenlight Bundle will get keys since that was kinda the point.

In fact, I'm so sure of this that I went and activated my Steam key for this game from that bundle :)

Really good? Frustrating? Which is it more? Action, precision or puzzling?

It's the old-school Mario / Rayman type of platformer. IIRC there are 3 difficulty levels. I played it on the hardest from the beginning, and it was pretty hard in places. IIRC you have a maximum of 3 health/hearts, and the difficulty impacts how much you start with, with hardest having you start a level (and checkpoint after death) with only 1.

You regain 1 heart every 2000 (i think) points that you score, which means you can be strategic to try to have just enough points at the start of a checkpoint to *almost* get the next heart, so that when you die, you only have to score a few points before you have 2 (on Hard).

This does mean that on the hardest difficulty settings you can't make any mistakes with bosses - get hit once, and it's start the fight over. That was probably the hardest thing about Hard.

And as you play the story mode, you unluck various challenges modes / levels, but most of those I found too challenging :)

I also put up a mobygames description: http://www.mobygames.com/game/windows/oozi-earth-adventure

Yeah, awesome game indeed, the graphics, soundtrack, artstyle everything comes really nice together, the only thing i was kinda dissapointed about was that at the end of story mode they didnt add a few shump levels in which you control your ship like the mosquito levels in rayman.

For that, you'll have to play Out There Somewhere and Ery's Action :)

Heyyy, you finally got the greenlight. That can take some time. I recall Mutant Mudds (a very good platformer) sat in greenlight stasis for 2 years.

Congrats.

So wait, is this easy as Rayman, or fun as?

Rayman (the first one) was super hard. I beat Super Meat Boy's Light World at least, but Rayman I stopped trying. Oozi on Hard was far easier than Rayman Forever.

The story mode isnt very difficult, you will die alot but the checkpoints are generous and there is noway to be ''game-over'',

The challenges and arcade mode on the other hand are very difficult and will keep anyone bussy for a long time before you manage to compleet them all.

These games dont look bad but it seems they are more of a puzzle platformers?, personally i prefure more action oriented platformers.

Yeah, those two are puzzle platformers - except the final boss shmup section.

Now, is Oozi precision or puzzle platformer? I have wish-listed it. Too many new platformers this past week. Vector, Steaworld, Ms Splosion Man and Wooden Sen'sey. Need to complete this backlog before I proceed, by which time the Christmas sale will be upon us.

Not puzzle and about as "precision" as Super Mario.

Not sure about that. Never played Super Mario.
