The Hairy Chestival Memorial Award
Jonny D says ...
I barely made it... phew.
I liked the sound effects, and that lava looks darn familiar ;). On a design note, I don't really like having to die to win...

Nice work, very polished. The game is a bit too hard for me... it feels like your errors snowball, might be an improvement if the wall slowed down after it killed you once. The jumping physics felt weird. Liked the sound a lot.

Please check your physics. Something appears to be very wrong somewhere w.r.t. jumping and falling.
Also, not enough time to solve puzzles like Upside-Down U before getting lava'd.
Good try, though.
Covenant says ...
The game was too hard, most stuff only seemed possible by dying to get high to jump down...
I'd say the main issue was the controls had too much inertia in them...
DrPetter says ...
Shits. It's difficult. I failed right after the HEE HEE part. Jumping mechanics are very weird and hard to control. I have no idea how to get up that upside-down 'U' structure with shootable blocks without dying and respawning above it. I love the laser sound, it reminds me of something out of Journey to Silius or Turtles 2 on the NES.

The Windows version gives me:

Woow, some frantic action there! Not a second to breathe. Scary wall, and difficult traps! Nice tiles. Too hard for me, but still cool, I tried lots of times!
PsySal says ...
Unfortunately I get the same problem as Endurion, I'm pretty sure I have python/pygame installed correctly! Sounds cool though =)
greencow says ...
really nice, very difficult..hmm says i don't have psyco. i wonder what that means? is there a whole nother game if i could figure that out?
scionkiller says ...
The messed up jumping physics are disappointing, because otherwise the game looks pretty good and has a decent amount of polish, sound effects, etc.
The respawn after death is also too harsh, putting you right in front of the lava again.
nilsf says ...
The jumping physics were quite weird. I finished it, but only by having the character commit suicide at strategic places.
Despite that it is a pretty neat game.
HybridMind says ...
Fairly brutal game here.. the wall of lava is quite menacing though that is for sure. I had a bit of problems with the controls as I never quite managed to get the hang of them enough to perform more of the advanced wall scalings it seems would be required to escape. I often just used the 'death push' to get past the barriers so that was a nice bug (feature?). I think if the wall was slower moving I would have more fun with this. As is, it is too frustrating unfortunately.

When I try to open the .zip, I get an error (unexpected end of archive?) :(
