With the ability to rotate gravity, you traverse a series of test chambers. As you complete these challenges, the rogue intelligence running the facility reveals your purpose. And your time is almost up.

Loved it. Love the story behind it too. My only complaint is that when you die, the whole dialogue for that scene starts again, which can get annoying if you keep dying, but great nonetheless!

JoshuaStone responds:

Hey, I'm happy you enjoyed the game! I definitely get what you mean about the dialogue repeating being an issue—I have some ideas for how I'll be handling that differently in the next one. :)

This is an enjoyable game, however at times it feels a little tight since you cannot rotate the room while jumping. Despite that it is enjoyable. (Edit: So I changed my mind on rotating while jumping, it is alright. I feel some things could be quicker, but it is a good game and I look forward to the sequel.)

JoshuaStone responds:

Glad you generally enjoyed it! I'll be trying to make sure the controls feel better in the next one, but not being able to rotate in mid-air is definitely important for the puzzle design.

Simple art style, great soundtrack, cool level designs, enjoyed it a lot!

JoshuaStone responds:

Thanks, glad you like it! :D

cool and good

JoshuaStone responds:

Thanks! :D

Awesome game. Although it causes me to rage every time I die, it's all worth it. I've tried the level editor and I loved it.

Btw here's my level: 2,5,12,5,14,18|6,6.1,,,,,,,,,,,,5.3;6.3,6.2,,,,,,,,,,,,5.3;6,6.1,,,,,2,1,,,,,,5.3;6.3,6.2,,,,2,1,1,,,,,1,5.3;6,6.1,,,2,1,1,1,,,,,,5.3;6.3,6.2,,2,1,1,1,1,5,5,5,,,5.3

JoshuaStone responds:
