Pretty fun take on the old imagination game as a kid.

Super simple concept but a ton of fun!! The leaderboard is a great addition. It made me stay as I wanted to top it. As of this post I'm the highest with 36 seconds :) !!

Really enjoyed the game, the music added quite a lot as well. I feel that the movement could be smoother but apart from that great job!

cool game

seems to be a bug where every other time you restart, the clock doesn't reset or something?

Survive the rotation room and dont touch the lava!
I really like the title! Bring back the childhood.
Reminds me why I am making games

I love it! But the ceiling is buggy in the web version.

Dec 13, 2016 @ 10:55am

Great entry, good music and fun to play. We had the same idea for this theme :)

Nice concept and good idea with leaderboard. Especially I like dramatic zoom on floor when you lose :)

That music is amazing! I would have loved more drama when you touch the ground (music, animation) but other than that, it's awesome! It's really addicting

That's a neat concept, the leaderboard was a great touch! My fave so far, I feel like the movement could do to be a bit quicker though, maybe I would have survived longer lol

Neat take on the floor is lava. It's the most promising lava floor game this ludum dare so far :). (There's more of them)

Really fun game, but i found really hard to beat the highest score xD

Really funny concept, the game controls some times feels a little weird or buggy, good work guys (:

Greaaat!! Love the concept of the game! And the art, music and gameplay bring it all together!

Sometimes jumping felt a bit odd, but it's part of what makes it challenging!

Leaderboards are a nice touch! Great job! Keep it up guys!

Very interesting concept. I think the player should move faster. Good work, keep going!

This game is extremely difficult. The movement is very rugged and it is very hard to move in 3D from the given view point. I tried about 30 times to get past the ceiling light portion and kept missing.

With smoother player controls I think it would be something I'd play over and over. The high score board definitely promotes replay.

Inception spinning floor is lava, absolutely brilliant. Tighten up the controls and you have a real winner here.

Dec 15, 2016 @ 8:19am

I've never played this game as a kid, so this is my first time :D Nice entry, really fun atmosphere!

Well, that was fun! Nice graphics, good choice of music and addictive gameplay. I think the little fella needs a bit more dexterity but overall a brilliant idea. Could see this on the 3DS.

The music is great, and I like the graphics too. The controls suck though, the player moves really slowly and I felt like I was struggling with the controls the whole game. I think maybe tweak some of the values

I played on the web on my mac, by the way.

I tried to get on the highscore table but I guess I'm not good enough! It's a nice difficulty balance of being quite hard but also quick, so you can keep trying.

On the whole, I liked it! Nice game!

The movement are so slow, it's hard to even tell the player is moving. That's too bad, because the graphics and music are cool, and the idea is fun, but the character is so slow it really frustrating

Jezzamon says ...

Oh, another small UI thing to change: The game is mostly keyboard controls when you play it, but to restart the game you need to click. It would be good if there was a one-button reset option.

Great use of the theme, the character controls (Web version) are a bit unresponsive and unreliable, I felt, perhaps by design? But I felt myself getting a bit annoyed at it. If we didn't have the shadow underneath us it would have been extremely hard to manuever with purpose.

Great entry though, I managed to get on the highscore, yay! Great replay-value and highly addictive.

Nice little game, it's cool you managed to get a highscore system in too.

Floor is lava vs. Inception ! Great idea ! But not really fun to play in the end though... The furniture doesn't fall fast enough so the beginning of the game is super hard and not really in a good way !

But nice entry !

Dec 15, 2016 @ 12:51pm

Nice game, i like it! good job for your first LD

oyoh says ...
Dec 15, 2016 @ 1:27pm

Excellent game, i've got a lot of fun, but the controls are a bit messy, it's sometime difficult to move to the right or left. But i loved it anyway !

Brings back memories! Great job!

Funny idea :) rotation is a funny gameplay element... but there is a lot of rng to have a thing to stand on in some situations... but Sound is fun, music too... game art is nice!

Haha nice! I especcially like the part with the scores. Bit too slow in Firefox, seems to run fine in Chrome.

Nice take on the idea. The controls could use a little work, but it's a fun game with some nice art.

Fun! And nice work getting a leaderboard in, makes a big difference having that as a goal! Made me think of these sketches an Aussie comedian Micallef used to do :)

Really fun game! Well executed. 6th highest score woooo!

Clemzd says ...

Great Idea! Good use of the theme =)

I really liked the game!

I think you should keep working on it to provide other levels and correct some little bugs. The control and the character could be enhanced =) I find the game difficult.

I like the music too.

Dec 30, 2016 @ 2:03pm

Haha really funny idea to make a game from this child game, really innovative and super addictive. This is simple in a good way and really efficient. The execution is so good, it reminds me that scene in Inception, I love how the Level Design is determined by physics and the music fits the game well. Also scoreboard is a real plus we rarely see on a jam game, I was so sad when I forgot to put my pseudonym on my best score, I'll try to beat it again later. What an amazing idea.
