I could not get past the 3rd level (because i am bad at this) but still super! =D


I like this, the graphics are a perfect mix of cute and creepy.
Maybe the controls could use some improvement but I didn't even think of that until I read some of the other comments because I enjoyed watching it so much.
The difficulty was at the right level too, I didn't get bored and I didn't smash my keyboard either.
Overall a sweet game.

Impossible at Level 19

I'm sorry, but the controls are just way too sticky to be able to complete the level. Jabberwocky refuses to stop when I take my fingers off the keys, and refuses to jump until two seconds after I told it to, making him jump too late to go where I want him to go.

Because of this, I have deemed the game "unbeatable." I'm sorry, but you get no stars for a game that's impossible to control properly.


Jabberwocky too me is a story that Vincent Price read, about a monster how did scare the people oe a village. Soo.. this game did surprise me, but not in a bad way. This game is both cute and odd and you can't stop playing it :)

Good game.

It might be needing some improvements though.

Gameplay ~
I really liked to format. I liked the idea of the slimes and the Jabberwocky. However, the controls are quite sticky and it often made it hard to play sometimes. I found myself restarting a fair amount of levels because of this. Other than that the whole idea and carry out really blew me away.


It has been said already. I feel like while playing this game I'm re-playing World Of Goo. Which is a fantastic game. You managed to make the art give it a very cosy feeling and at the same time made me feel like I was playing one of my all time best games again.


The music sounds sort of caveman like and when put infront of slimy things and a Jabberwocky I don't really feel like it made sense. It is great style of music to go with a game but in my heart I didn't really feel it fitting in.


Overall~ It's a great game and I really enjoyed playing it. Of course my only problems are the sticky controls and the music but that's just me.

Well done. 9/10 5/5.
