Love the Spanish Gag. At least I think it's a Spanish gag.

And look, McPixel! :P

LOVE the art style. Unfortunately I couldn't figure out how to get past "Soft Kitty". Even though I'm not a huge VVVVVV fan I really like this.

It would be more fun with sounds and a nice music. ;)
For sounds, for exemple you can use this :

Great artstyle. Confused why you used mechanics of VVVVVV, but I guess you did it in a tasteful, tongue-in-cheek way sort of way.

Delightful, particularly the last clue. Inspector well-drawn in all forms.

If you're having trouble getting past SOFT KITTY try using your 10 SECONDS.

Wow! Didn't expect from title that this game is a real gem! Thank you for this!

At first, looking at that little not so well drawn title, I thought this was going to be a crappy, put together in 2 hours, sort of game. But no, its amazingly done and well polished. I love the VVVVV style to it and the amazing colors. Its great. I even included this game in my video compilation of LD27 games, if you wanna check it out :)

Very well executed... can't give you much for innovation since it's VVVVVV + a timer, but everything else was pretty spot on... le funny too ^^

Great LD game! I love that I can explore the other houses without fear of missing a goal. You may want to upload a picture or two of gameplay here to make sure people see what the game actually looks like!

So fun it hurts. McPixel!!!

Oh wow, what a misleading title screen. The art style was sweet! Nice job, dude. Wish it had a theme song like Turtle + Wombat :P

I like the way it switches art styles, but still holds together.

I like this game, the idea ... But somehow, ... I can only find three clues in VVVVVV? Two on Up and Down, one on Must be Allergic. ... Sadly, because the game seems very nice :/

The soft kitty room was really cheap. Not fun ending. :/ The only surprise I had was at the start room But that was it.

omg. everything came so unexpected :D
so much fun, although the VVVVVV-style-controls feel a bit wired.

Great art style. I really liked the detective part in the town. Although the VVVVVVVVVVV game world was fine, the town was much more interesting and wish there was more to that. I hope you finish the story!

Haaaahahaha amazing! Dude your images on this page didn't do the game justice, it looks so good! Bonus points for asking Terry not to sue you. Great work!

Really liked the art style, especially compared to what I was expecting after seeing your screenshot.

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.
