It looks like you didn't give us the public dropbox link. Can't run it.

Can't access it (Dropbox giving a 403 error). Try putting it in your Public folder. Screenshots look neat though!

Okay, hopefully I fixed it. I just made a new Dropbox and apparently they did away with the Public folder! Managed to get one anyway. Let me know if it still isn't working!

Pretty interesting. The parts with the screen changing and there being spikes was a bit frustrating. Love the minimal art style

Kind of fun, but really annoying.

I like how my fingers were all over the keyboard before long.

Background colors are eye-pleasing. I wanted to explore more but got stuck in the part where you have to jump through a very narrow gap of spikes about 5 mins in

really simple yet frustrating
good job!

Great graphics and music, but holy moly, so hard and frustrating *just to figure out the controls*! lol. That said, I liked the Metroidvania game elements. Kind of reminds me of Robot Loves Kitty. =D

Frustrating to begin with but really fun once you get into it. I really like the music and mood of the game :)

I love this so much! Its really well made, the gameplay is fluent, graphics are smooth, well done! :)

Challenging. I like the music and art style. But it gets super frustrating after a while. I got the save point right before the "Present" for the Fix key and was getting pretty frustrated.

Also if you play in a browser with a white background it's hard to tell where the world ends and the browser background beings.

Freaking hard. I am ok with that. Cool game!

haha, I liked it. Wasn't too hard to "guess" which keys are to be used. It was fun re-leaning how to move.

Loved how with the left key unlocked, you re-used your levels and had the player backtrack. It's like the unlock / exportation mechanism in metroid broken down to it's simplest form, or should I say,minimalized?

Good use of theme, I approve and enjoyed!

Good concept. Nice simplistic visuals. I found the background music quite annoying.

Very well done, can be a little frustrating. beautiful style.

Wow, that was frustrating but oddly entertaining. I have to say, finally being able to fix the keys is very rewarding. I love the minimal colors, but as someone mentioned, it's hard to see where the white platforms end and where the edge of the game begins, so I didn't even know I could fall through some areas. Of course, that could have been intentional of you for added frustration :P

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
