For some reason, last week I started developing a platform game without having an original story or concept, but a few days ago I watched a motivational documentary about game development, so an idea came up: put some motivational messages based on the level mechanics. It's not much, but I enjoyed developing it.

The main message (if you rage just think about it):
-The obvious never give up
-Imagine obstacles as a thing that makes you strive and get better

If you get stuck, make sure you know that: When you press [Z], you also trigger an ice spike that can be used as a floor or wall.

Leave your feedback please, I'm a new developer so the game is probably not good but I would like to know where I went wrong and do better next time.

Great game but the music wouldn't play

Game pissed me off after awhile. Stupid man wouldn't jump. Gave up after 1000 tries.

I don't know why but nothing ever kills me and I can just keep going left and right after falling down the map (it doesn't count as dying somehow) so I can just go right and eventually that will count as winning even though I (supposedly) fell to my death. I assume that is not supposed to happen... I haven't seen anyone mention it before so I guess it's only happening to me.

Also, how on Earth do you restart? I've never died (even though I should have) so I haven't figured it out yet. I have gotten myself stuck in the water and I can't get out so it would be cool to know how to restart without reloading.

I didn't want to give this a score yet because I can't play it properly so I don't feel like I'm in a position to judge it fairly but I can't comment without rating it. I will reevaluate after someone helps me out. Any ideas?

Edit: And by "nothing ever kills me", I mean nothing I've encountered so far in the game. Falling off the screen or hitting the spikes (I assume they're spikes) has no adverse consequences - other than occasionally getting stuck. I've come back to try this game again and it's still the same. I might be immortal.

It is terribly annoys me that there is 2-3 frames where my budy starts falling and if I held down 'jump' then he wouldn't jump. I don't care if it ould count it as their second jump, but I would have to release and press 'jump' again. Please fix.
Other than that challenging and good game.

The game is simple and fun because of the increasing challenge, but the ice-sliding mechanics should only change the player's speed while the ice is on the ice, another problem is that sometimes it seems that it simply pushed the player to the right, play the phases of Mario Bros. 1, try to replicate that mechanic. The challenge must be the non-mechanical scenario.

At the moment the game started to have only pixel leaps, which irritates me a lot, because this is not a challenge, it's just annoying.
