Pretty cool, quite challenging.

Liked the multiple characters and animations.

Felt a little too easy to brush against a spike and die. Might have been more fun with 'health'

Best time was a measly 41 seconds. You audio was solid, and I liked the alien designs, but the controls we're a bit off; sometimes I would try jumping and nothing would happen. Also, I'm not sure if it's just me, but it felt a little disorienting that if you didn't push any buttons, the player automatically walk to stay in the same place on the screen. I would have expected the player to stay connected with the same point on the octagon as long as the angle isn't too steep.

Nice game! I liked the permanence mechanic of seeing your corpse from that last time you died. Good work. It might work commercially on mobile.

To be honest the controls felt a bit clunky, and the camera was a bit too shaky sometimes.

However, the idea is quite interesting and with good potential if iterated, and actually got me playing around for a while!

Nice entry! ^-^

It's very funny and original, but it feels a little repetitive after a while.
Maybe you should add more obstacles as you keep surviving
