Pretty cool :)
Needs to be more subtle though

Overall, this is a rather neat game :)

I would have liked more attention to have been put on the art, as the walking animation seems a bit slow, and the areas seem empty.

The bomb sound effect is good, and some background music could really have benefitted the game.

Keep up the great work!

Great game. :3
I like games where the world changes around me. :D

What a cute game. I liked the character and I quickly found myself moving from one place to another, transforming the levels. I feel like I was missing a challenge, some way to frustrate me or lose the game in a sense.
Anyways, I liked the game nevertheless.

No jump sfx, 0/10 worst LD :V

Nah, but seriously though this came out really well.
I'd love to see this expanded post-compo.

Dug the ending, the mechanics work well, and was fun while it lasted. I feel you spent a little too much time on the mechanics, and not enough time on what the game should be (Puzzles? Exploration? etc..). Although I enjoyed it for what it was!

Amazing concept!
Well executed, but I feel like a few more game elements couldn't have gone amiss! (the bombs were neat though!)

I like it. I played through a couple times.

Dec 13, 2016 @ 1:49pm

Very cool !
bad there is no music.
And maby it's too short.
But very good joob for a game made in 48. The gameplay is very cool.
And you made it with Game maker ? so good job !

This is a cool concept, hope you will continue to work on it! As other people have mentioned you could do a lot with this and a couple other mechanics, and some more variety in the environments. I also really liked the cute/simple style.

Great game

The graphics suit it perfectly
The audio is interesting, definitely the right style, however there are lacking sound effects/music

The ending was abrupt

Dec 14, 2016 @ 7:54pm

It's a super interesting game, the graphics are cute, and is ultra creative. JUST PLAY IT!

That was a good concept. Nice sound effect, but I missed a BGM.

Cool idea! Could use some music and more graphics, but I like what you got so far.
Well done!

Thanks for the feedback! I might work on the game further and submit a post-jam version, keep your eye out! :D

Great concept and take on the theme ,somehow i kinda enjoyed the jumping i just kept jumping instead of moving :D :D

Nice idea. I loved Antichamber and I see the reference here. I wish you rolled a bit more with the premise and added some more surprises beyond "Dead end, turn around, new path". I like the art style and the controls were smooth. A jumping sfx would be neat as would music.

Overall a solid entry that is worth getting a few more iterations to flesh it out more.

Nice game.
The gameplay was really enjoyable.
I'd love to see post-jam version with more details and audio.

Your games getting better all the time, and this one is much better than the one i played from yours a few LDs ago.

I think that the engine has more potential to use for better levels too. Well done!

Not bad! A bit too short though, I think there are more thing that could have been introduced with the whole "look away and look back" mechanic.

Love the character. Very cool gameplay idea, just wish it was longer! The bomb made an interesting item, perhaps there could have been other items too? I know making levels is hard and time-consuming though, so good job!
