I dunno if anyone has asked you this but will you submit this to steam?

I haven't played the game yet since I just downloaded it, but I wanted to point out that the Mac version of the game is listed as an Android APK.  


Not just that the game mechanics are fun, but the art was so goddamn gorgeous! The whole design was really something special. <3 I just wished that it was longer. :) Each jump right onto the tiles to create a smashing wave let me feel pretty powerful. :D That was a fantastic entry, so I wrote a little article about your game and also uploaded a playthrough video. :) Keep it up!

Best wishes,


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 :)
