It appears as of 20/12/2011 @ 03:20 GMT the host of my website is playing hard ball, and thus my website is slow!

:(

Should be better soon!

Excellent art and music, but I'm seriously confused about gameplay, especially as mouse click doesn't do anything and all I can do is climb over boxes...

Love the clouds!
Good gameplay with nice difficulty progression.

Only grips is the jerking collision once the level starts falling around the player

Graphics and music are great. The rest is a bit lacking, though... i don't like the gameplay, but thats mostly subjective. Collision detection and the camera are very bad. And there no real introduction about what to do. Figuring out yourself what to do usually isn't much of a problem... but this game kills you within seconds if you don't do what it expects from you, which is quite bad if you don't even know what it expects from you.

Nice music and decent background, but I find the game flawed. Without some explanation of the mechanics and function of the various blocks, its all trial and error, and things happen so fast but take long enough to get back to that it's a pretty frustrating trial and error. The sudden jump of the camera whenever you climb a box adds tot he unpleasantness. Also, isn't the menu button click sound a stock windows sound?

unfortunately does not run under WINE due to the dependency on xna4, so I can't rate this entry :/

some obvious bugs, but otherwise really nice art, music, and submission

I love the idea. It's almost unplayably buggy and jerky though. I wish you'd at least smoothed out the camera movement.

Lovely graphics and sound, though.
