I present to you, Confound.
My first serious project in Flash, made over the course of a month using Flixel.

You are a test subject of the Confound project, which studies the mind's ability to relearn how to perform simple tasks such as jumping and walking around while under the effect of artificial confusion.

Forget all you have learned about movement controls.
It's time to get confused.

WARNING - This game can be quite difficult at later stages. It also has an Auto-Save feature, so if you are having trouble, you can just quit and finish it later!

Protip - Take your time and think it through before moving around when near danger. Try no to be reckless.

Seeing as this is only my first flash game, I'd really appreciate some insightful reviews about what could be improved upon or not, if the game is enjoyable or not, that kind of stuff.

I hope you all enjoy this one!

EDIT - Woah! Front Page? Thanks, Newgrounds!

EDIT 2 - Reduced enemies and spikes' hitboxes.

PS: You can control the Volume with the - and + keys and mute/unmute with the 0 key.

Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

Frontpage? 4+ star ratings? What am I missing here? Why do I have to ask so many questions?
This game is not revolutionary and even though this might be your first flash project game there are many reasons to not give this game a 4 star, let alone 5 star rating.

The controls feel kinda stiff, going on a ladder through a narrow spot is kind of awkward. The gameplay itself is not that bad but switching control keys is an idea that is about as old as platformers itself. The music is a basic tune, so are the sound effects. Nothing too special, but I have seen worse.
Definitely not worth a 5 star rating considering that you have chosen a genre with lots and lots of competition and a lot more possibilities that would highly enhance the game.
You are on a good way however and people seem to support your work here greatly for a reason I fail to understand. Maybe you will convince my humble self with your second game.
