Alright game. The art for this game is creative, and the animation is okay. The music makes you kind of get into the zone. The game is too fast paced in my opinion, even if the you get to choose how long it takes for the bomb to explode. Taking inspiration from games like Bomberman and Tetris is a combination I would never have thought of.

Would be better when we can jump with a different button.

This is a really cool and juicy little game, really addictive and unnerving :) There is a nice balance between gameplay, art and music, which is impressive for a 2-days solo game. Congrats !! :D

This game isn't bad... but I suck at it! :d

Wow! This is incredibly addicting and I love it! All the core game mechanics work together seamlessly. Falling blocks can crush you; to avoid being crushed, you might have to jump over an already fallen block; in order to jump, you place a bomb, creating a hazard for yourself; when the bomb explodes, it clears some of the blocks off the screen; rinse and repeat. And it's all driven on by a tense, adrenaline-inducing track that matches the theme, style, and rhythm/pace of gameplay extremely well.

I have a few suggestions/complaints, although I understand this was made on a deadline, and some of this stuff may have been developed given more time:
• Better UI.
• Highscores should have the bomb delay displayed as well, as it drastically changes the difficulty.
• This may have been intentional, but I don't like that after placing a bomb, it doesn't take up exactly 1 block, and that it's hitbox changes as it pulses.
• Game over sequence should be a bit faster so the player can jump right back into it.
• In 2P mode the players should be playing against each other, not with each other. It's much easier and more fun to try and screw each other over than cooperate and try to keep each other alive. Someone dies, the other person gets a 100-or-so bonus point; quick reset; keep playing. Scores are continuous from game to game until the player actually leaves to the menu.
• Also in regards to 2P mode, why is jump/bomb for P2 the 'T' key!? How are all four hands gonna fit on one keyboard? So, maybe customizable controls, or just.... better.. buttons.. :p
• And lastly, medal machine 🅱️r o k e

Overall, great work, hope to see more from you! :D
