I dislike the way the sound is using. It gets noisy while jumping around and walking (and I dislike this kind of noise). Also I don't think this has not much to do with escape... It has something do with it, but not much... But, with a bit of polish (and better level design), a good game may come out =)

Yeah, the fact that the sound plays even while midair completely disconnects it form being footsteps, and turns it into this weird background noise. Level design was pretty good, but a death animation would have been nice - oftentimes it was hard to tell I'd actually died, because it doesn't even pause for a second to tell you.

Neat little game, very endearing character art!

Controls are decent, I guess triple-jump is sorta fun. A little too bleak, even for the atmosphere you were possible going for. Sounds are a little annoying. It does need more variety and is quite easy, most hardship from not being able to tell things apart. I guess I like the idea of being chased by hordes of slimes.

Weird jumping and the sound doesn't fit. Also, next time please pack up the game so its is playable directly.

Walking sound shouldn't be played mid-air, and in general the audio isn't that great. Also, at first it isn't clear that player has to jump off the walls but levels seem to raise difficulty rather slowly.
It's a fine entry - perhaps a little too short, and it's only /horrible/ flaw is the lack of an executable. Not everyone's keen on installing stuff to run a game, no matter how hot'n'awesome the stuff is. So next time:

Other than that, as I've said before, it's a fine entry, with a proper ending and all.

The walking sound is annoying and the way double and wall jumps are handled feels somewhat wrong. Except from that the game is quite good. I like the idea of the light activated slimes.

this is one of my favourites, although i found the run sound a little annoying, maybe not be as bad if it only did it when on the ground, love the ending it the field which closes the game, atleast i hope it closes the game and not just crash lol
