Wow. Just wow. The level of polish here is amazing!! The UI is very nice and you even included a level editor. It crashed with a null pointer a couple of times, when i won and going to the menu after making a level, but they weren't game breaking. My only (very minor) complaint is there were too many clicks to restart after death, and you needed to leave the controls to use the mouse. Later i realized you could do that with Enter, maybe put that in the description?

Nice game. Good menu style and such. Looks like you spent some time on it. I was playing so nicely. And a wild null pointer exception appeared. It says LWJGL Renderer Thread,5,main. whatever that means. Anyway, cool game, keep up good work.

Nice job! As has already been said, the UI was smooth and I liked the music too. Pretty fun concept with the timer. The only thing that bothered me was that double-jumping was hit-or-miss, which got me killed a lot. Maybe I'm doing something wrong but it seems that double-tapping UP doesn't double-jump every time. Good job though!

Very fun. I agree that the music is awesome, and the game itself looks, and feels polished. This was a amazing idea, and it was executed in a polished manner with clean UI, and the game had an amazing mood.

I got the same error as @Mantlair, and after getting the error, I wasn't able to play the game again without re-downloading it.

Amazing work overall :D

Fun game, the sprite sheets worked well with your game and the music was really good! I found some levels very frustrating but overall good job!

Really awesome game. Enjoyed all of it. I included it in part 3 of my MiniLD #59 compilation video series, if you would like to check it out :)

After playing this game for half an hour - I got a weird error about threads...

This game was one of my favorites, so I wrote about it for AlphaBetaGamer and awarded a trophy to your LD profile page!

Thank you @Jupiter_Hadley. Would you like to see this one go further and maybe developed for android?
