Very succesful as a maze, though a little bare-bones as a game. Controls were a little bit floaty, which wasn't so good when time is of the essence - though it wound up being part of the challenge, so I suppose that's good. Neat little game.

Nice maze. Was kinda hoping it was more like labyrinth where you have to avoid holes.

I did it in the second try. Controls are floaty, but I suppose it is on purpose, so why not.
The time you have is well calculated !
That wasn't bad overall, nice !

Well constructed maze, i like the layout. At first I was skeptic about the navigation and the slow acceleration, but I found that it added a nice challenge to get right and get a good time. It took me a while to get that when you collect a coin a wall gets destroyed, at first I thought that the red thing was a timer and I needed to reach that location before it ran out. The maze looks weird at first too because the exit seems unreachable. Good concept overall, it just needs some polish with menus, sfx and music.

An essay game to play and understand. A game hard to master and win. Overall a great little game. And welcome to LD.

the game was too linear so it became boring to just work through. perhaps if there were more doors that led you somewhere else. also the controls were rather sluggish. still a very good game. nice work.

Short & sweet, made it in right under the clock :) Nice job for your first entry--I like the concept of traversing a maze and changing it as you go. Keep working with this idea and something cool might come from it!

Fun game! The controls are frustratingly loose, which does not pair well with the timer.

Nice maze, not really hard to find the right path but it's still hard because of the time. I managed to win at my first time :3.

Very nice game! I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :)
