Love the Gameboy-like graphics of the game! The concept is very clever, too, though the level with all the pills that you must avoid began to get frustrating because I didn't have much control precision to avoid them, I felt.

Still, it's a solid concept and looks neat. Grats!

Good game only criticism is that i seems kind of hard to doge the enemys in the later levels but other than that great game and greatly re-playable

Great game. Loved all the little puzzle solving bits in the later levels. Wish there was more feedback for knife uses

So far the best game I've seen on here BY FAR. I didn't want to quit this one at all.

Love it. The music is somehow quite fitting too.

original and graphic are inspired
mechanism interesting BUT the decrease of the player speed is really boring

I like how you went from "minimalism" to "mini", that's minimalistic thinking right there!

Nice game too.

A nice idea, closely following the theme. I however think that the blinking exit boxes could not be great for epileptics and the music in an endless circle disturbed a bit :) Otherwise I had good fun. Glad I played this.

This was delightful. I wish there were more levels that I could play!
Maybe a bug: When I grabbed a pill near a wall, sometimes I would kind of hang there and couldn't move parallel to the wall until I moved clear of it.

Pretty cool little concept. Good work!

Cool game, I found that the part about knowing which block to break more fun than the core mechanic about being small. I mean the pill idea is good for the theme, but what make the game fun and challenging is the block thing.

The only suggestion I have is to have some sort of sword strength indicator. It seemed that sometimes I could kill 3 enemies per sword, sometimes more.

Like the concept of the game and it was fun. The music gets a annoying after a while, and there seems to be a small bug when you shrink it shifts the player slightly to the left so I would momentarily stuck in a all some times.

A cute game. Sometimes I felt the controls weren't precise enough for some puzzles. Scaling of the player can sometimes get them stuck in walls. The puzzles themselves were fun. Fits the theme well. Good work.

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.
