I loved it!

But it is just impossible! It's almost ridiculously difficult! I really don't see how it 's not based on "luck". I've tried tons of times to actually try and sort of calculate the jumps but I just can't seem to nail it. The worst part is i can't stop playing it!

Oh wow

Great game.
Addictive, challenging and fun.
The only real complaint here is that it's frustrating if you don't have the patience to try and do better.

This is a fantastic thing, that does exactly what it's supposed to.
Perfect? No.
But damn close.

Congratulations of remembering the secret. (It's simplicity, yo)

Best game of this type I've ever played

Too bad I've never seen a game like this that's not "not worth playing again". Like how the key you press is esc (I see what you did there) and the fast-paced music works where with the game play. But what I like most is how sensitive it is. Like it's easy to control with one key...if that makes sense.

The trollface

The idea of trollface is great. I mean, it appears when you cross the beam, but the go not up, but down.
Really good idea.
