Solid game, and hilarious sound effects.
I really enjoyed playing this game. Hope to see a sequel! Perhaps around Easter?

The early instructions are way confusing in the context of the game. I had no idea that I was supposed to be collecting chocolate until about my tenth run. I thought the game was about bouncing on things! And then I died when I did it! I didn't even realize the chocolates were there, I thought they were "dirt" that was part of the background until I, by complete happenstance, found myself in a pocket of ding noises and white circle effects. Who knows whether I would have ever figured it out if I hadn't bought my first couple upgrades in the Chocolate line, on a whim.

The rest of the game had a similar timbre. I couldn't figure much out, or why things did stuff. Anything I touched killed me, half the powerups were suicide, and even after I bought some armor most things *still* outright killed me. (On the plus side, this feeling that you didn't give a shit whether the game made any sense or was truly playable made it easy to invest in the "useless" Gift line of upgrades, because why should I care either?)

If I were you, though I'm not, I would change the introductory instruction screen to just say, "Collect chocolate!" with a sample line of chocolate-specks to show what the hell you're talking about. Extra information isn't completely necessary, and you seem to be on a "figure it out your goddamned self" tack with this game. (Also you should make this intro screen viewable a second time, without having to erase your progress to do so.) I'd also consider giving players one slot of Armor very, very early, to introduce the idea that different enemies do differing amounts of damage. (Maybe have a damage popup number instead? Maybe that's a little too on-the-nose.)

All this being said, once I figured out what the goal was and generally how to go about accomplishing it, the game was pretty fun. But god damned if you didn't set a brick wall right at the starting gate.

I was a bit disappointed to see how this was ranked fairly low in comparison to a lot of your other games. This was still a fairly good game. I guess I was hoping that you had the ability to attack. You know, fire chocolate as a weapon or something. It's still fairly stylistic for what it is. I know I have played something like this before.

The music was fairly good and it fit the game nicely enough. I didn't see what this had to do with Valentine's Day that much. I guess chocolate is something you can associate with most holidays. It did go pretty fast even if I wasn't able to get very far. I just think it's a bit too incomprehensible to like that much.

Meh... not really any good. There is no really theme to it, just a bunch of random stuff. The screen is way too cluttered, too many enemies. Over all a fairly poor effort.

the mechanics and original style of gameplay is good how ever it takes way too long to get the necessary upgrades to progress far.
