Good game, I'd change the background color to black to give more the sensation of darkness, very nice the tutorial in which you directly have the possibility to test the controls while reading instructions.

One of my friends actually suggested that too and I was thinking of playing around with more of a chalkboard style instead of the notebook style. Once I have some free time from school, that’ll definitely be on the list!
and thanks for the comment on the tutorial! I’ve always enjoyed playable menus in games so this was like my spin on that.

I absolutely love the challenge this game presents - I've only been able to get halfway through level 2! I love that the lighting is randomized because it prevents me from becoming too much of a master at each level. Sure I know the best routes to take, but the timing is always different. Also echoing RoseofFire, I agree that the controls feel sharp, accurate, and very responsive to my control. Well done, and hope to see more in the future!

A nice little platformer game to say the absolute least. The music was nice though there could be more (Although there came a point in my run when the lights synced up to the soundtrack so that was cool, I was sad to see that was just good timing and not on purpose). The challenge is there without being hair ripping impossible , and the controls are tight and have weight.
Keep at it , and I hope you have more to show in the future.

Thank you very much for the feedback :)
I totally agree on the music, that's definitely an area where I could use some more practice.
