I thought it was very original. I loved the art style and the music really pulled it together.

I'm giving this a better score than I usually would have. Usually it would have been a one, but I can kind of see effort in there, so I'm just going to give it a bit more of a positive score. Let me tell you why this game is awful.

For one thing, you present us with "a platformer with a twist." There are so many of these out there it's ridiculous. This is your standard platform game that only changes the jump patterns. Other than that, it's pretty unoriginal.

The graphics on this are awful. Now, usually I wouldn't let this hinder a game, but considering the fact that this started hurting my eyes after playing for awhile was a pain. Must have taken five minutes at the most for graphic working. You could have at least tried to put some effort into making graphics for this game. Games that use an 8-bit art style similar to this one basically say "I'm too lazy to put any work into graphics for my game." If you're going to use this art style, at least make it somewhat good.

There's not even any storyline to this either. There's just nothing to it at all. It dumps you straight into the middle of the game. You don't know what you're supposed to be doing, nor do you know what's going on. If you don't do something perfectly, it's going to screw you over later. It's still possible, but it usually means death and having to redo the whole thing over from the last checkpoint. I didn't even realize that I was limited on my jumps, nor did I realize I could jump multiple times until around level 2. There's no reward to finishing a level either. I mean, the least you could do is pop in a humorous five word message for us to read, but you just say "nope here's more levels."

The only redeeming feature that this game has its music. Even the music isn't that great. It gets pretty old after awhile, but at least it's bearable. At least whenever my eyes are burning from looking at flashy graphics and extreme differences in color patterns I have decent music to accompany it.

Level 10/10 is a giant middle finger to everyone who made it that far. It shifts the difficult meter to a damn near impossible difficulty just to screw over the players who for whatever reason decide to play your game. There's absolutely no reason to do that, and this actually one of the reasons why this game was so badly damaged in terms of my personal rating. That's an extremely cruel and sick thing to do in a game.

I would caution players who are curious about this game to NOT play it. There are plenty of other games out there on Newgrounds that are actually worth the time to play, unlike this game. I'm not saying you should just stop making games completely, but please actually put more than a few hours of effort into your game before you submit it.
