Mirrored Forest

by IndieST - 48 Hour Compo Entry

You wake up in a strange forest. In the ripple of water you see a different yet connected world. Can you solve the puzzles through the mirrored reflection?

Use A/D to move left/right;
Use W to Jump;
Use Mouse and left click to throw stick to water;
Use Alt to switch between worlds;
Use R to restart current level.

The character should have animations but I didn't have enough time to do it. Use your imagination :)

In case you don't get the subtitles in game, I'm writing down some of them here:
The 3rd screen: "Move mouse and click the water to throw wood"
The 4th screen: (The cat says) "Where's my kid? I won't leave until I see him..."
The 6th screen: "Watch out the water weeds"

I liked a lot of the shader of the water, the puzzles were nice too.

The lack of animations on the player kind of made it feel a little creepy almost :)

Very nice entry. Now I'm not sure if it's because I'm on a mac, but the ALT key doesn't seem to do anything. I got stuck at the 3rd screen not knowing what to do.

It was fun until it got stuck on the throw stick part.

More helpful subtitles would be good, tho it was fun to figure out myself how the system works. Didn't know what to do in the third area and I think I didn't get that subtitle text that's in the screenshot or I didn't notice it before it disappeared. Very nice mood, felt like i'm in a fairy tale. The water shader and using it in the gameplay is clever.

Good stuff. Also got stuck on the screen with the stick. Couldn't figure out what the white kitty did either.

I liked the water effect and some of the level designs, but to get the kitten I used a bug in the wood platform, where you can jump by only touching it, even under it :X

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.
