Seemed like the difficulty ramped up fast, or maybe I'm just bad.

Going from a run down a corridor with a single sentry gun to having to hop across platforms on top of lava whilst two sentry guns fired at me did seem like a bit of a difficulty curve.

Once I had got the hang of the gravity and found a good method for getting over the lava, it seemed that the goal area would always kick me back to the first level (I checked the guns weren't killing me before landing).

Is there only two levels?

Nice game, you should higher the friction in the third level, jumping is difficult, but when I slide out of the floor and touch the lava I feel stupid, MORE FRICTION!

Nice simple game, I really like it

Nice challenges. I think, I made it through. I was sent back to the first level. A bit more friction would be good. The lava levels felt more like I had luck not to jump into the lava. Maybe add some levels at the start where you only have to jump platforms, to let the player learn the character physics?

I think it's a little difficult for me. Nice work, though!

Great game! I would like more levels! And less to jump into the lava;)

Nice game, was able to complete all levels. I have to say you could've tweaked the controls more, since it felt really floaty and slippery.

Cool game overall. Would've liked to have seen some nicer visuals. The lava kinda reminded me of a cheese pizza! :)

Was pretty cool, I liked the fast-paced feel of it, no time to break, just gotta finish dem levels. Really nice, short simple and fun to play. Good job, expand on it, more levels.

Unfortunately, both WinRAR and 7-Zip reached an unexpected EOF, so I couldn't try it. :(

Nice and quick :) Jumping felt a bit awkward for me. Think there could be some visual feedback when you fail, with a confirm button or something to try again, felt weird to just go back to the action, especially when I just had 10 seconds to do the run, ended up wasting a few seconds.

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.
