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!

Short, but nifty
It serves its task well, distilling the metroidvania gameplay style of tight and difficult moves and planning into a tidy, no-nonsense piece that examines the genre as a whole without becoming a tawdry art piece. It is a legitimate purification of a popular genre, and it serves to really demonstrate to people what the genre is basically about.
I played on mute, so I can't really talk about the music, but overall this is a clever game to breeze through, even if it doesn't have a great deal of replayability. As such, I gladly give it an 8 out of 10 and a 4 out of 5.
Pretty interesting little game...
Enjoyed playing this. My only concern is the game's length/difficulty. I see that you made the game in a day in a half so obviously no points taken off for that. I only hope you will expand on this concept and make a "SUPER" Game About Literacy :P
Would love to see a more expansive version of this with more levels etc. I give you an 8 because I'm saving the 10 for the sequel to this ;)
By the way.. The link diog was trying to post was this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pdE06h FuzlQ
For people who were complaining about the "impossible jump"
For the others and the dev:
This game is really great, the music fits perfectly and I like the concept.
Needs a pause button and a starting screen, though.
Rated 5/5 and 10/10
I liked it
It was to short but thats all good game. also @ rocker I'm epileptic and let me tell you its only a specific patter that will cause seizures though your concern is nice this game will not hurt anyone.
Seriously, for safety reasons
You need to warn people that are susceptible to seizures that there is something like that at the end. You don't anybody getting hurt because of a game you made. Other than that, not bad.
