Made for the 8 Bits to Infinity -GB30 Game Jam

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Game Boy this jam has us making a game in the style of the said Game Boy.

Theme: "It's dangerous to go alone..."

Cross the Gap is a short tile movement puzzle game. You control both players and must get them safely to the door on the other side. Because if you only make it with one you will be alone... and that's dangerous.

this is amazing

There's a slightly remastered version complete with level select on coolmathgames

This was a cute little game! It was challenging at times but it was definitely fun!

i also like your channel and watch all of your devlogs!

that was pretty hard, graphics were cool and the game was challenging. fun and mad! good game. no problems with it.

nice game..

after trying for almost 2 hours i managed to get a 3:58 by just using optimal routes and in the level 10 a small glitch where you can activate the lever and ride the platform at the same time (only possible with player 1) this saves a little time.

It is a very nice game! I love the gameboy style and also like your video about the development.

Pretty fun game, I solved all of the levels. Only critique is that the key largely obstructs the view when you collect it. Also, nice to see the video on you developing it and then playing the game.

really enjoyed playing this game <3

Really fun game, would love to play more levels! This game has a lot of potential and it could also be a fun two player game. The music and art style is very nice and overall a very fun and enjoyable game :D

I don't know if you've heard of Game Development World Championship before (gdwc2019) but it's a competition for indie game developers where they can submit their games and it's free! It's great if you want some more visibility for the game and it only takes a couple of minutes to join :)
