Cute intro, gameplay is fun but a little small res! Hard to see what you're doing.

First couple of times I loaded it I couldn't get past the intro. Once I got in, the game was fun. Surprisingly difficult! Nice work :)

This Rat was surprisingly fierce! Really enjoyed your mini-story :)

Liked that you had a story that's so rare in a jam!
Liked that you could jump onto the boss.

gotta jump on the rat!
unfortunately on OSX, ctrl and up arrow triggers window view to switch and kills my Norton.

Graphically it's pretty impressive, but gameplay-wise it's a bit unpolished for my tastes. The lack of audio is also a big sticking point for me. Even some token SFX whipped up in Bfxr would have added immensely.

It's surprisingly hard! The rat's AI is pretty good as he kept slamming me into the spikes. Drawings are very cute. Good work!

@Levin I didn't even think of that problem! thanks for telling me. hopefully I'll be able to fix it later.

Nice intro. Pretty hard game. Camera control isn't very useful... I think you'd be better off just making your characters bigger to begin with.

I didn't manage to kill the rat. It always pushed me into the spieks xD. Tried to hit it while standing on its back, but it didnt work.
I liked the graphics, especially the intro is nice!

Control setup was a bit weird for me. I like the cute intro though.

It was incredibly hard to play on a Mac (for reasons described above). Somehow I was able to beat it. It was a really quirky game :)

Pretty hard. I really enjoyed the fact that the game has a worked story, but I think the gameplay left the game unattractive.

The controls are rather difficult to work with. I'm guessing the goal is to attack a few times and jump away so you don't just get pushed into a spike.

The gameplay was a bit weird but it's still fun =)
Pretty hard though, as the rat goes faster.
Overall it's a nice try to tell a little story. :)
