That was an awesome game! I really enjoy puzzle games and this one was no exception! It was a blast to play and I really liked the glitch effect. The audio was a nice touch too. Good Job!

I love it. The whole game feels deliciously arcadey and the puzzles are just challenging enough to be solved quickly with little to no frustration while still feeling satisfying. Your high contrast character and enemy art really makes the game fun to look at. My only complaint would be that the environment graphics look a little lackluster in comparison. I beat the whole thing and I might play again! Good job!

You wouldn't expect that: "This game is full of glitches" and "It is really well made game" go into one review together :D Nice game and great soundtrack!

I'd like the game to be a little bit brighter! Like the style and the mood!

Great entry! This is fairly simple game, but you've used the mechanics quite effectively. The audio was a great mood-enhancer too.

I feel like the player and background sprites could have used some more work. The contrast on the level is very low making it hard to see the layout properly, and the player kind of looks like a cyber Finn the Human. The player's sprite also seemed to be significantly taller than their hitbox, which made some of the puzzles feel a lot more difficult than they actually were. The glitch effects on the other hand were all really nice!

Awesome puzzle game! Had a lot of fun! Really good game mechanics. The problem with the contrast of the levels has already been mentioned. Solid entry!

Cool game! Really liked the puzzles. Graphics and audio were great too!

Very cool! It took me a moment to figure out what to do ("Why can't I get there?"), but I think you did a great job slowly ramping things up and "teaching" the game mechanics.

This has to be the most enjoyable game I've played. The only fault I had with it was that the platforms can be a bit hard to see at times. However the game ramped up perfectly - introduced new ideas in a way that a tutorial was not needed yet I knew what I was doing. It had enough of a challenge to be hard but it certainly wasn't impossible. Well done, keep on going on this one I think it can go far :)

Nice levels and their progression :)
Colors are a bit eye-popping, but I think it is the part of style.
Good game overall :)
P.S. It will be nice if level changes was synced to the music :)

Liked the idea a lot. The levels show incremental difficulty. I ve died a lot of times but i continued till i finished the level. Pretty addictive!

Awesome style, and for such a glitchy game I didn't find a single bug :D nice work!

Nice entry! Glitch was a cool theme. The art and music was cool. The puzzle was simple but fun.

I liked how you were able to create a lot of puzzles with this simple mechanics. For some reason this game reminded me of Adventure Time. I have no idea why though.

Nice game! I really liked the audio, it was simple, but not repetitive, and moody, but not cheesy. I also liked the animation of the floor changing, and the sense of progression as the levels got harder and harder, while also getting more and more "epic".
