Chrome reports this as 'malicious' - not sure why. Maybe you want to zip it up (perhaps chrome thinks that exes by themselves are dangerous?)

Nice game so far! All you really need are some sweet graphics and tunes. I'd like to see a few more gameplay ideas, cause buttons are only so interesting :-)

Note; Chrome will whine about this file, comes back clean from VirusTotal.

Levels require forward thinking, some switches make the level unbeatable if you press them, which is kind of annoying but once you get into that mind set it's not that bad.

Didn't even notice the music at first, its really quiet!

Not bad, pretty easy though.

Enjoyed the "trap" buttons. :)
Perhaps the dialogue boxes are not needed.

I enjoyed the intro, and the gameplay is nice n easy to get to grips with! Nice work! :)

Simple, but nice. I agree about getting rid of the dialog boxes.

Fun! I found the background a bit hard on the eyes for the first couple of levels. Other than that (and needing some sound), I like the small size of everything. Gave it a good feel. Thanks for sharing!

I was hoping the meteors would come raining down during the platforming levels because they are a bit stagnant once you realize that switches will become the only level-beating mechanic.

It was fun and the ending was alright but the whole game needs some oomph. I also really wish the windows didn't resize all the time or that the dialogue boxes, like others mentioned, were part of the screen.

I hope you find the time to take this thing even further! There's a game here, you just need to polish it! :)

simple and focused. Works well. Music got a bit annoying after a bit and it needs more sound!

I fixed the 404 that resulted from me reorganising my Dropbox files.

Nice ! I would have liked more challenging level design, but it's fun =)
