I can't get F6 to display the rules, so there might be something I'm missing, but from what I can see the biggest problem, and it's a huge problem, is that the level generator is totally random, and usually makes impossible levels. Try making a procedural generator that assures that the level can be done.

Try using bounding box collisions rather than pixel-perfect ones. Also, yes, the random level generator produces 75% unbeatable levels.

The random level generation is your biggest downfall. Probably would have been better to build a lot of different levels and select each at random so that they're all at least beatable. Otherwise, it's a good start and I hope to see your next #LD48 game :)

Level generator is not good and the colors are ugly.

Could have used a lot more work. Really needs a better level generator.

Level generator is total killer, but even if it was working it wouldn't be very good game. About the only thing I kinda liked was music.

*Note to self: Dont use a random generator for LD22*

I concur with the rest: most levels were unplayable. I also couldn't see the rules hitting F6, it instead created a new level. The collision also was somewhat weird as the player could be left floating in the middle of a block.

using generator for LD is ok, but you have to check if level is beatable or not ( which is not easy for plaform games )
the music is cool :)

Collision detection was really dodgy. Also echoing previous comments on level generation. No difficulty curve, just beat a level and done.
