PRESS SPACE AFTER YOU DIE I AM VERY GOOD AT INGAME INSTRUCTIONS

I have no idea what that name is even supposed to mean.

Try to survive as long as you can in this totally not completely stolen minigame game! Immortalize yourself in the highscore list! Show the list to all your friends and tell them how you fought to get your name to the top. They will definitely be impressed.

God freaking damn, I was on the edge of my seat the entire time I played this. It's real simple, but so challenging, and the way each minigame blends into each other is brilliant. I'm pretty happy with my position on the leaderboard, once it gets to a certain speed, the reflect game becomes impossible for my sloth-like reflexes. Great work, simple and well-made, I love it.

Awesome game, but hard! I suck at the reflect stage. Great idea with random stages. Would be great if your name persisted through multiple plays!

seconded on please not having to type in my name every time. Cool game, nicely done, yeah the reflect stage seemed harder than the others to me

First of all thanks for the feedback, glad you enjoyed most of the game :D
I know that the name reset is annoying and easy to fix, but I am currently in my final exams and technically I don't even have time to do anything but learning. That's why I chose the simplest solution most of the time, which in this case was just to restart the entire game after it was over. I also realize that there are some pretty gamebreaking bugs present (mostly in the jump minigame, my engine seems to be very bad at moving collision boxes ^^) and that the difficulty is not very balanced, but there will be a post-LD-version in a few months or so which will adress all of those issues. In the meantime, hope you can live with this glitchfest for now. I definitely had a good time making this game.

Really cool game, it definitely fits in the arcade environment and keeps the player on its toes. The art style its also on point. Ignoring the fact that the box collision its funky when dodging and sometimes the game forgets some elements from previous stages its quite an amazing creation.

@Berbecarul Thanks for your feedback and glad you liked the game ^^
The hitbox in Dodge mode is actually only the darker square in the middle of the player on purpose. Stuff like this should be explained somewhere, but as I said, I'm having finals and couldn't think of a way to explain that in-game.
