I'm not trying to say it's bad, it's just unplayable. Seriously, platforming doesn't work when your character rockets off once you lightly tap the arrow. I got the key after about 20 tries. The bomb? Never got it. Try getting into that room without flying right off the ledge! 2/5.

Just too hard. Couldn't even get to the first upper level.

I can identify that this has good platforming feel (it's VERY Super Meat Boy), but I don't have the dexterity to get past the second section. I spent 10 minutes on it and really didn't even come close.

Graphics and sound are really good for their scope, and it's an excellent braid-esque take on the theme.

Its very rage inducing, my spinal integrity was compromised quite a bit.

As other have said, the controls are very hard for a platformer - with the 10 second timer thrown in there, it's a pretty damn impossible game.

Gotta at least have the illusion of winnable.

Controls needed some work. Too Twitchy/sensitive Very frustrating experience. Like someone else stated, I feel the super meatboy in it, I just wish I had some wall sticking power.

Controls are very mushy, which makes for a difficult time platforming. Are all the platforms covered in grease and ice? But the simple art style is nice and clean and I like the design. However, I am upset that you compromised my spinal integrity.

A little more floaty jumps or something would help. It is really hard to get the bomb, plus having to wait the extra 3-5 seconds each time you fall into the infinite loop is irritating.

Humorous, but wicked difficult in the first real platforming section.
I tried many times, but never won.

Cool game! Got it in 51 tries. Can't understand the hate. I love platformers like this, and it has solid gameplay. Also loved the sentences when you died.

Good work!

It was pretty hard, but I like where this is going.

The game seemed really fun. It did. But the controls were like butter, covered in soap, greased up with vegetable oil, covered in Vaseline. I think this game would have benefited from tighter controls, which is a shame, since it seems like it has a lot of potential.

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 ( 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.
