Wow, this game is amazing!

Hey! I discovered this game through a YouTube show called Bytejacker. They show off three indie games a week and encourages people to review them. So here we go.

BASALT was a game I actually, kind of hated. The concept is great. Smashing the ground to create shockwaves reminded me of Yoshi's Island's final boss for some reason. But this game really needed some polish. It was really hard to tell where I was compared to the ground for example, and I fell off the level into the water as a result several times. A dropshadow would have been great, and is typically the easiest way to fix this. And speaking of falling off the level, I straight-up fell through the ground on multiple occasions, typically after setting off a shockwave.


A short game with a very interesting mechanic! I had a lot of fun playing this :)
