Pretty difficult

Graphics weren't the strong suit
There wasn't any audio

However I like the concept and the power ups

It's hard and not really adapted to an AZERTY keybord. (Why you dont use arrow keys ?)
But it's pretty fun :)

Tricky! Pretty fun though, once I got the hang of it. It took a few restarts for any light pickups to spawn though, so took a while to work out what I was trying to get!

Very hard and cool idea..
I had some issues with jumping, couldn´t figure out how to make a "high" jump to reach the upper parts of the room.

But it kept me long playing it - pretty funny.

Sometimes the pickup spawns in the below the platforms where you die ;-;

Not bad. At the 10th second, I died on the top. )

I like this kind of game. Overall pretty simple. Took me a long time to realize you had to press "Start" to start the game (also it was offscreen at first), might be a good idea to make the game loop within itself. Sometimes I'd get hiccups where it'd freeze for a bit then run very fast and I'd end up losing control of the character and die.

Cool game, I liked the concept! And the programmer art!
38.4 :-)
But why 2 buttons to start/restart the game?

The encroaching doom does a good job to add an atmosphere of impending agency to the player.

Light pick-ups were a little hard to see against the white background.

Nice game, but how do we jump on the higher platforms ? Could not figure out...

I really liked the way the darkness ate the blocks, it was a cool idea. Well done!

Great concept, very strussful. A little barebones but overall kind of fun. Best time i got was 42.

I made it to around 38.something the game would lag and I would shoot off of the platform I was aiming for.
