Needs work. Stuck very quickly with no way to restart. I don't know what the objective is. The boy is taller than the tunnel. Am I supposed to be stuck here for good? The makings of something that could be much better. Great job for your first attempt.

It's... Not great. I can see the fledgling of something fun here, but it needs a lot of polish. Here's a few suggestions:
- The camera should not have to move itself towards the player from the start of the level, it's just jarring to suddenly YEET as soon as you drop in. An easy solution would be to simply always make the camera snap to the player instantly as soon as the game begins - and any smoothing can happen after the 1st frame.
- Speaking of camera, the purple box that signifies the position is just a distraction to the player. If you need to see it for debugging purposes, have it start off invisible, and only appear when you hit T or something.
- There's a pointless big black box all around the play area. I don't know if it's a bug or if you intended the platformer to be smaller, but it's artificially making the game (as an object) artificially too large.
- Damage boxes on the ants are widldly inconsistent. Sometimes I don't need to jump at all, and I kill them without any damage.
- Add a restart button, I fell off of the edge in level three and can't do anything but refresh the page. And I'm lazy, so I'm not gonna try again.
That said, this is a promising 1st project, and don't let the low ratings discourage you. I'm a little curious to see if you manage to make something a lot more polished in the future!

As mentioned before the 2nd level tunnel is too small. The ants pose no threat, they just touch me and die. What's the pink and black box following me?

good pixel art but the level°2 fix it plz

fix 2nd level. good game
