This is a neat concept. I would like to play a bit more but cant figure out how to progress - I'm pretty sure I killed all the shadows and there are chunks flying around everywhere. Huge stones are falling from the sky but it doesnt seem like there is anywhere to go.

Reminds me of Transformice (http://www.transformice.com/)...wonky wall jumping and all. ;)

Fun game, and a neat idea. The wall-jumping felt a little unnatural, but it was fun for as far as I got.

Nice concept and music, but the controls and movement were so frustrating. First 2 levels seem to be ok, couldn't get farther due to lag and strange jumping behavior. Anyway, nice game :D

Interesting theme idea, though I would prefer a more surreal presentation of the whole chased by "shadow" concept. It seems too joyful and the cheery music doesn't quite fit I think. The controls are... clunky at best and I did not see the end. Walljumping is a very big pain. The physics are very weird and I had severed heads flying around the level. Overall, nice idea, cute soundtrack, interesting graphics but clunky gameplay and non-cental to the theme.

Also, 43 Mb!!!

Very cute. It made me sad to see all the other me's get killed.

the first level was very laggy on my notebook, but the second level was totally ok, I dont know why. The game is interesting but the bouncy corpse parts that never fade away make the game a bit messy. I would have prefer smaller level where I have to think about how to kill my shadows, like a puzzle. In its actual form (classic platformer) the game is not exploring the full potential of the main idea.
