Rated 4 / 5 stars

doesn't feel right

to press down to jump over an abstacle, this made it kinda hard to play. Something like, duck, slow or fast movement would feel better. Otherwise music and graphics are really nice. I don't no if its just me, but could be a bit smoother.

I liked this

Though quite a few people bitch about the unfairness of this, I liked this alot. It would have been way too easy if the cues were obvious. Just because the majority of gamers here are conditioned to the strobelights meant to troll the epileptic doesn't mean a game sucks due to subtlety.

The only thing you really could have improved on is the mechanics of the jumps beyond what precludes a jump during a flat out run. But that sorta attention to detail is for stuff you get paid for. So no worries.

Keep making games like this, and I'll keep playing...

Good but

Your game have good music, good graphic, good idea for gameplay but the screen is too close. But the real default. Give "Transparent Tower" to your character's band's name take out a difficult of NG Jam.

Color contrast needed to stand out better.

I didn't have the same problems about figuring out what to do as some others, as I read the comments and the How To Play before jumping into it. My issue is that the obstacles were often colored so similar to the background that I had much difficulty making out what I was actually supposed to do until it was too late. The Thus the gameplay, for me, was about squinting my eyes at the screen and playing around with all of the brightness and contrast settings just to make the game more playable. If not for that, I had no problems with the game. Simple, charming, just the right speed, and the art and music were both fitting for the theme.
