Overall a reasonable game, albeit a little frustrating. Character animations are good, although I believe the character is just a stock asset. Perhaps some more detailing on the blocks, and a bit more vibrant colour scheme.

Level 2 was by far the most frustrating, although level 5 was a contender. The slow motion of the platforms made each level feel excessively long, and really ruined the momentum. Level 6 was great to play - loved the increased pace. Potentially allow the ice blocks to respawn after a set time to prevent soft fail scenarios. Theres a weird bug I noticed on Level 6 where you acheive a double jump if you jump off the end of the platform, but only applies to the fixed platforms. Please never have platforms that limit jump height - I know other games use them but in my opinion they are the worst invention since American toilet stalls. On average the levels were well thought out and gradually introduced the new features.

The delayed movement of the screen probably smooths thing out, but makes planning your next move quite difficult, especially in fast paced environments - also if you fall you cannot see anything.

I would prefer a bit more celebration when it was finished - not entirely sure it was worth the hour of life I will never get back (I'm not great at platformers). Well done though, reminds me of some work by a Lithuanian engineer I went to uni with.

It's a basic platformer with good animation. 4/5

Awesome game! I like it a lot! Very addictive! :D

I think it's a bit bland (graphics wise). Also the music gets a bit grading after a while. Defiantly playable, but not one of the best projects on the site. But as your first game, it's an A+!!

The screen movements are very jittery and that make watching and planning movements more difficult than it should be. Try to smooth it out. Also, he seems slide around more, like when landing on platforms, and thus, he keeps moving right off the platform and falls into spikes. The hitbox on the spikes it very large. Since he can't have his head go thru platforms, making the climb at the end of level 2 was annoying. The music is ok, so keep that. The controls, however; if you use arrows for left and right, why use other keys for up and down? Use up and down arrows for up and down. Don't ever use Shift or Ctrl, as they're system keys.

Keep at it. When it's fun for you to play, it might be fun for us to play. Never submit something just because it works, but wait til it's fun; which is the point of games. :)
