Gamepad controls: Left Thumbstick to move, A to Jump, Y to respawn.

The short story of a red box trying to reach the end of levels, with each following level inverting the previous. My first ever completed game, so it's a little rough. I do intend to revisit this game someday with a sequel including more mechanics and more levels.

Original description:
"Constantly switching from this world to another, more brutal, inverted copy."

Originally developed in 2014 for the Ludem Dare 30 Game Jam

v0.1 - 12/5/18 8:10 PM CST: Wall sticking is as fixed as it can currently be, not perfect but better.
v0.2 - 12/7/18 1:37 PM: Gamepad support added, player physics tweaked to reduce slipperiness.
v0.3 - 12/9/18 11:19 PM: Lightened up black colors to improve visibility. Movement and jumping rewrite is done, might be a little clunky to start.
v0.4 - 12/17/18 1:34 PM: Tightened up platforming a bit, hopefully no more sliding off edges or running jumps off ledges not working.

The level design is pretty good, and every other level being a backwards version of the previous one is a great concept. However, the game has a problem with clipping, mostly into walls, giving a feeling of the red block being stuck but also sometimes slightly through the floor. 5 level was a bit of an aprupt spike on the difficulty curve. A bit sad that the game isn't longer, but still an enjoyable experience.

Cool camera angle.

Cool! I keep getting stuck in the walls, though :(

Very interesting concept and execution, in my opinion. the only real issue that i've had is that the controls feel a bit too slippery, but that was probably done on purpose.

Thank you for playing, the slipperiness is definitely going away in a future release.
