Overcoming danger with trees

by Desmont - Competition Entry

My first LD game. Far from perfect, but it's playable.

getting really heavy input lag in this game (in firefox, flash player ), can't really play it

Works fine for me. Awesome idea. Time travel! LOL. Some of the jumps are frustrating, but overall I enjoyed it.

I'm unable reproduce this behavior. What version of Firefox were you using? Debug or Release version of Flash plugin? What OS?
I prepared an alternative build, where the quality/scaling settings are changed: http://desmont.exroot.org/flash/post_ld20/ - let me know if this one works better.

I really like this, nice work! I played all the way through. I was really pleased by what happened with the time warp. If I was going to nitpick I'd say your final level was a step backwards because it didn't use time warp or introduce a new mechanic or puzzle.

I agree, for the last level to work, there should me an additional game mechanic (switches or doors) - not just relaying on precise jumps.

I loved this, excellent work and great combination of features.

Ohh cake. Took me a second to figure out the controls. I like the time-traveling mechanic.

Some frustrating jumps, but a nicely put together game. Time travel was a nice touch.

You don't see enough unidirectional timetravel to the future. Clever mechanic.

Really fun mechanics - SFX a little grating, but graphics nice and bright! Good job.

the cake is a lie! i'm a winrar!
you've put a lot of effort into creating the two screens with the old guys. but it would have been nicer to see that effort put into more levels. as the others say, the jumps were kinda annoying, but once you get to know how to jump, everything's fine. it's jsut that: once you learn it, the game is over o.O??????
don't forget the music next time ;)!

Works fine, good idea!
I'm a fan of puzzle platformers, with a few more gimmicks this could be really good.

Awesome game with a really creative mechanic! Excellent for a first time entry, well done and keep it up!

Some of the jumps were a tad hard, but I guess without them it would've been a bit too short...

Very much like the tree growing mechanic :3
