Really nice visuals! I like the concept but in its current form it's a little easy to just take the top route and run forever. Also, sound effects (even some rudimentary ones) would have been nice to have too. But overall it's pretty nice, good job!

Nice work on the gfx (life indicator, time rewinding) it gives the game a great mood.

Sometimes I could go through the platforms by performing a double jump. I don't think it was intentional since it's not always happening.

Love the art and effects, looks really good!
The first level is really looooong though, maybe my computer was running slow. Good job!

Great presentation. Wasn't really clear to me what I had to do, but still, enjoyable to look at. :)

Great visuals, but your character is too tall, I can't stop hit my head on the ceilling D:
Good job

Pretty solid game with nice art. However, the platformer physics are really annoying and would really require some polish (stronger gravity, allow to go to the left)

I agree about the gravity and some other physics parameters. As for allowing the player to go to the left, I don't really want to :P

Seriously, I love it ! But I think there is a lacks of fun :/

Yeah.. Hopefully that'll be fixed on the post-jam version (new boss, more traps, more level design patterns, more filters o/).

That guy is a running fool. Nice use of time rewind. Only complaint is that the level seemed to be drawn out and repetitive. I never would have known there were more levels if it wasn't for the screenshots.

Lovely runner!

Love that art! The first level is so long I originally thought it was endless. It was also a little annoying getting caught in dead ends and having no idea when they were coming. Still really well presented runner. Great Job!

Histeric music, nice graphics. Keep on!

Fantastic art style on this. Gameplay is good but has a couple of issues - some of the holes on the bottom level are a bit hard to spot, and there are dead ends that you can't even predict. Other than that, great.

Wow. I'm impressed. The graphics are great, the gameplay is nice and I have the feeling that for this game everything fits. It plays awesome. It feels awesome. Good job.

Dead ends are normal: you have to go back (with space) when you encounter one :)

It ran a little slow for me and jumps felt too floaty (not being able to hop) but the reverse time mechanic was well-implemented for the most part. It was fun seeing it actually rewind, but if you were in the middle of a platforming section it was hard to recover, since there's no prompt, it just immediately jumps back in

Nice visuals and cool story but reallly hard!

Great mood, the graphics are good and the music was alright. I think it needed more fleshing out but otherwise a good germ of a game. The whole rewind because of hitting a wall is a bit annoying for me. I have a decent machine and it managed to feel a little bogged down!

Nice art!

Sep 2, 2013 @ 11:29am

Nice game and concept, but the controls are sometimes a bit "loose". The art was great though, and the first level was pretty well balanced. The second one was too hard for me to complete. The music was also fitting. Very well made all in all!

Nice game, quite funny to play!!

Made my old Win XP computer chug pretty bad, but really nice art and atmosphere.

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.
