wasd to move
x to open doors
z to activate bullet time wich slow down time plus it let you move alot quicker and avoid stuff easier
r to restart if the game glitches

you can
wallrun
walljump
crouch slide
the longer you run the more your speed and jump height increases

TIP: do not do as the first arrow says when it points down, you will fall and die and if you havent made it to a checkpoint before you die your game will crash

A very unforgiving platformer. Starting off the game with the quote, "You are running from some shit i cant think of" doesn't really give yourself any points, either. Collisions felt unfair at times, well demonstrated by the sawblades on level 2.

It took me a good deal of time to get accustomed to the controls, and only through trial and error did I finally figure out how to run up walls. If there were some sort of tutorial or even written explanation of how to play at first I'm sure I wouldn't have gotten as frustrated.

I also managed to crash the game on the first level by falling through the wire (like the arrow directed me to!) to my death.

On the plus side, I really enjoyed the music. The level design seemed solid as well, and I think it would have worked very well if the mechanics were tweaked/improved a little.

Overall, good job on finishing your game! I feel like if you had a little bit more time to iron out the bugs/have others test, you would have had a much better final product, but it's almost there!

like the previous commenter, it crashed when i followed the initial down arrow into the saw blades. :( some interesting gameplay ideas but very hard to control. i couldn't figure out how to run up walls. the music is nice and cheesy.

A really good looking game which seems to have been inhibited by Game Maker. The collision detection was really off, and I couldn't seem to wall-run consistently, (or maybe I was doing it wrong? I'm not sure.) The game also crashed fairly often for me, even beyond that sawblade part in the opening. The game's got a lot of potential, but just seems really rough around the edges.

That's a lot of features, but some of them have bug ( running back slope, crawling near a border, wall walking hard to trigger... ) maybe you should have focus on fewer features but improve the controls instead. Anyway, that's an impressive sum of work for 72h game, congrats !

It froze when I went down the blades on the first level... Also, too hard for my taste. The music is catchy!
