    Screencast is still being uploaded. So sorry if you clicked it to find a broken link before it was done :/

    I kinda like the style, especially the use of a 3D background for 2D gameplay! The running animation could need some more love and the buildings could be more colourful, but altogether the idea and the sound is neat. :-)

    I like it. The physics and controls work very well. I think a best times table would be good for this, and a bit more colour, but on the whole, great job.

    Gotta say, when death is being bombarded by women I kinda wanna die. One thing I was expecting to work, but didn't, was holding the down key to pass through a platform. I understand that maybe this was to make it more difficult to escape the women, but being able to jump up through the platforms and not pass back down through them felt weird to me.

    Pretty hard to play because when you get touched, it screws with your controls. At a certain point, I just went to the top of the level and waited. Bitches please. :D

    Fun little game. I could only survive for 1:09, but played several times. I like how the women are all different sizes.

    Thanks guys/gals! And thanks for the suggestions as well. We have continued working on Jim, and are planing a mobile release. So of course your comments are most helpful!

    Oh and if anyone is wondering what happened to the screencast, well it failed after about a day of uploading. And I have bin too annoyed to attempt it again lol.

    Your art style is pretty fun. I really like the jumping poses and (I can't believe I'm saying this) the lens flare was a nice touch. The "life bar" was fun as well.

    In terms of controls I think Jim feels a little too "floaty". Also I'd like to have seen more frames of animation for the movements.

    Your game over screen is kind of strange though, in that it appears that the women clearly aren't colliding with each other's visible pixels. On the other hand, it reminds me of my own game's "YOU WON" screen. ;)
