Okay game which could be a great game if it weren't for the inexcusable lag, game bugs, and, in some cases, design flaws.

When you're wall-hopping for example it's very easy to glitch and end up inside the wall.

Also in the butchery there are spikes that are background, but it isn't clear at all these are background. This is a very blatant design flaw causing the player to have to guess which are real spikes and which are fake.

And don't ever remove the option for the player to lower game quality. That's just nasty as well as poor design. Because the option has been removed you actually have to lower the game quality before you click on play.

Oh and the lag is very inexcusable. Lots of times the buttons just will outright fail to respond at all.

Played this with a mapped controller: Superb! The game is great, however, I have a few advices (not complaints, advices). Fix the few buggy platforms. They can really kill gameplay, and even make start the game all over if you get stuck in them. There is one in the last level that get's really annoying: You have to make a wall jump on it, but Mr. Pig get's stuck in it until a saw kills him. It is frustrating to repeat the same level lots of times just because of that. Also, try not to use leaps of faith. Remember, a fair hard game always shows you what you are facing. It isn't fair to die because of a saw you can't see, or falling because you can't see the platform you are supposed to jump to. The soundtrack is great, but it would be better if it didn't restart from level to level or after each death, it rather keep on going. That way we could appreciate better. Some sound effect wouldn't hurt much. One last thing: Check the hit boxes. I personally suggest you remove the ears and limbs from them, since that leaves transparent bits when Mr. Pig jumps that can be hit, and it feels really unfair dying when nothing clearly hit you. All this being said, congratulations, this game is a very nice, challenging throwback worth trying.

Smooth controls, nice graphics... but I find it totally confusing that the same spike image is used in the background as in the foreground. (eg: in the 1st butcher's lvl, the top spikes are decoration but not the ones at the bottom. On the next level (maybe this one is a bug?) there's a moving platform made of blocks with spikes sticking out the bottom. I thought I'd jump on it. It's blocks on the top, that's usually safe... well it killed the pig.)

Oh and 1 more thing: X+Z keys?? For qwertz keyboard users like me, it's as if a you played using X+Y :/

Smooth movement and nice art. The birds were pretty trippy, really liked them. I thought Mr. Pig was pretty cute, and felt bad when I got him killed in the saw. Maybe he'll forgive me because I don't eat pork? ;p I enjoyed the music too, very fitting for a pig jumping around! The only real issue I had was with the controls- it seems you can run and jump while going left, but not right.

Thanks for the positive review and feedback Talise! The running and jumping is working fine for me both ways, but I'll check it on other browsers to see if I need to fix something.
