Nice work. The graphics are well done and you have the distinction of being the first entry I've played to have decent sound. The game itself is good, and I like that the mechanics are somewhat forgiving - I don't die without at least a 1 second exposure to the frickin' beams. That was well thought out.

Niice, this was addicting and pretty well balanced. Great level design too.

Very sharp game. Walking under iso view is cool! Cheers on using unity!

Like the game, and the concept, but those controls are just weird for me :P Good job!

I thought it was pretty fun, but honestly I found the controls really difficult, and I'm not sure why. He just wouldn't walk exactly where I wanted him to, so I felt the difficulty was entirely within getting him to do what I want and not within fast-twitchyness like it should have been. Seriously, though, great job overall. I just didn't understand the choice of control scheme.

The isometric camera makes it really hard to imagine the play space in your head. The screenshot above exemplifies that pretty well. It might seem like in that situation the player could walk to the left and end up on the platform below, but he would actually fall off the world. In that particular level it's not really a problem, but it becomes a major issue later. I think using a regular perspective camera on this might actually help the player understand the spatial relationships between platforms. Also the isometric directional controls get pretty confusing.

I had some difficulty with the controls. I had to keep checking which key moved to where. I guess this is the perspective view...

Nonetheless, I did have a lot of fun!

Nice art and music. Lasers mechanic is interesting. Isometry could use polish. Controls are very awkward due to them corresponding to isometric dimensions. This isn't central to theme though being a timed puzzle game.
