I played some earlier versions during the weekend and it's a very fun game. It's easy if you are not collecting the frames in the correct order and quite hard once you try to do that, it keeps you searching the screen for the one which is animated. Great game!

Fun little game! :)

Nice game with old school look & feel. Too bad there is no background music :)

Good game though I found it quite annoying that your jump stops as soon as you press a directional key cause I always forget that and miss the jump :P

Cool little game. Nice interpretation of 10 seconds theme.

Thanks @Dioiminik. It's a bug that happens when you collide with a solid. Working to fix it :D

Wow, that is challenging. I like it. I especially like the art style!

oh this reminds me of playing a lot of Bombjack ! movement is a bit slow for my taste, but I guess it fits the gameplay! very nice :)

Good effort! The jump feels a bit "floatey" or slow and that bug that Dioiminik mentioned really makes it hard/frustrating to complete some of the stages. Unfortunately I couldn't beat/finish it.

As have already been mentioned, the floaty physics are a bit frustrating. But I also think that they add an interesting aspect to an otherwise simple challenge.
Cool little game, I love the silent film frames between the levels, nice work!

Despite numerous attempts, I couldn't get past 3000. :(

The core mechanic fun once you get used to the controls, but the film rolls were annoying. Do they move randomly? They always seemed to be in places that made it hard to finish the level, and then I had to start over from scratch.

The graphics and presentation was nice. Surprisingly tense and addictive. :)

Cryovat Thanks for playing.
The order is always the same, so you can adjust the strategy in every new replay.
Easy to play, but difficult to master :D

I'd love to see the animation in the order its collected between each level, but otherwise a fun game =D

A short and cute game, I got up to level 6. The jumping seems off in some way - it was difficult to get to the higher pieces. I like the idea of the film ticker counting off the seconds.

Aug 27, 2013 @ 4:40pm

Nice idea and theme! The jumping works in little funny way and it took me a moment to realize it needs to be held down. But otherwise this was interesting and fun little game.

moon jump lol, funny

Art is very polished and the protagonist is very lovely. With music the game will be great! but i think you must be proud with the results! :)

Xgor says ...
Aug 27, 2013 @ 8:32pm

Good idea. it took me awhile that I should avoid the film rolls, More clarity and failing sound effect would make that clearer.

aquilicoco says ...
Aug 27, 2013 @ 8:32pm

@Nezzhil thank you :)

@Xgor thanks. Good idea for the postcompo version

Very good game and especially for the graphics around cinema theme.

Aug 27, 2013 @ 9:31pm

I love your graphic design but, the gameplay is a bit too "spatial". Your guys is on the moon :-)

I like the idea and the simple but efficient graphics
It took me a while to get to the big jumb
Liked it :)

The jump physics is a bit odd but the game is fun to play :) I liked a lot the hidden scoring system (with the animated pictures)

zatyka says ...
Aug 27, 2013 @ 11:33pm

I liked the style you used. The jumping was a bit floaty... but that was probably intentional. Best implementation of the theme so far, and it was nicely polished. Keep up the good work!

zillix says ...

loved the olde timey presentation! the movement was really quirky, but that added to the feel of the game. great job!

Aug 28, 2013 @ 4:39pm

Cool game! Very nice presentation touches, with the film countdown and the silent movie style caption borders. Really neat. I found the platforming controls a bit weird to deal with. Oh the mechanic with getting the pictures in order is interesting as well. Nice job.

Not sure it it's me but I had a hard time with the jump.

I like that you essentially swim through the air.

On some levels, particularly 4 and 5, I feel that you start too close to enemies. On level 4, I once died while holding left, then died two more times immediately after respawn because I didn't let go of the key quickly enough.

Nice graphics; I like the consistent film theme!

Very good! It gets repetitive quickly, but overall it's really well executed. Congrats!

Good feel.

Great use of the theme... I like this game :D

nice pixelart, and solid controls. :)

Jesse Freeman says ...
Sep 4, 2013 @ 11:24am

Fun little game. I found the controls a little too "floaty" which is a pet peeve of mine in platform style games. Would love to see what you do with it after.

Cute and fun.

Kept redirecting me to '' in between games for some reason. Now that's a strange bug.

aquilicoco says ...
Sep 11, 2013 @ 12:54pm

@motty Thank you. what browser are you using? :) Yes, it's very strange

Sep 14, 2013 @ 5:18pm

The collision is a bit brutal on this one and the controls are a bit strange but it's a really good idea and I like the art style a lot. It's a shame the main guy is blurry though because he looks like he's drawn really cool.

The film look with the title screen and the texts is pretty great - as is the highly visible and perfectly fitting timer. I also liked the ingame graphics a lot!

Cute game, plays well and I love the chunky graphical style mixed with those silent-film style interludes. Good work!
