I made this in a day and half as a challenge and design exercise for myself. I basically wanted to take metroidvanias and distill them to their purest form.

I'm posting it here just to see what others think, so please let me know!

Awesome Game

Dang, that's awesome.
I like how you can jump in midair ("last level" ;) )
This is awesome! And collecting speed and jumps is an idea I don't remember from anywhere else.

This... Is...


Some levels were tough, some easy - but the DESIGN of the levels is what impressed me! Perhaps not unique gameplay, but amazingly original level designs.

I'm impressed, good job!

Thanks, that's what I was going for :)

I have games that try to innovate in different ways, but I intentionally did nothing special or new, mechanics-wise, for this. I just wanted to try some nice little level designs.

This is a lot of fun

Usually platform puzzle games are tedious, but this has a nice flow to it. I actually want to keep playing and the subtle humor is a nice touch.

This is just an overall well made game. It's better than most stuff and it's only a demo.

10 seconds?

after time runs out i only get 10 seconds to do each level witch made it impossible to beat

DamianS responds:

I've personally never seen this bug. Send me a message on how you managed to make it appear, because I'd like to get rid of it. I can't manage to reproduce it :/

Thanks :)
