The dull room is a simplistic platformer where you clear levels with the help of a rope.

Amazing soundtrack!
As for the gameplay I think it would be a lot more intuitive and easier to play if the rope would not stay by default and then be removed with another click but instead stay as long as the player holds the mouse button and is then removed on release.
Also a jump function on the space bar might be nice. It might break some levels but that in my opinion is a fair trade for better controls.

I have to admit, I lost interest once I reached level 08.
Probably because of the controls - They don't allow for fast-paced movement.
Or maybe that's just my short attention span.


fun game, i like it
one big problem is that in the first level, you let the player move while the dialog box is up, but you don't let them shoot the rope, so i first thought it was completely broken,

Thank you for pointing this problem out. I'll fix it as soon as possible.

Decent game, I like the fact that it allows the player to play at their own pace, which is kind of a rarity in platfomers. Controls are a bit sticky, which is excusable, a few spelling mistakes are present, I'd suggest you get someone to proofread and I'd love to see the option to change the rope to a "While the mouse button is pressed" rather than a "Toggle with mouse button" thing.

Grevicor responds:

Thank you for your review. I think that adding the option to change the rope to a "While the mouse button is pressed" for such a short game would be pointless. Most players wouldn't even notice that option.
Could you tell me where did you find the spelling mistakes? There shouldn't be many of them as the game doesn't contain much text.
