Love the visuals! movement is unfortunately quite buggy, but I like the idea of slinging yourself around to jump, as well as the idea of buying checkpoints. an option to skip through text could be useful, even maybe a sprint button could add to the experience. 

Here's my game if you want to leave some feedback c: https://itch.io/jam/blackthornprodgamejam2/rate/379533

the game is cool and i really like the overall like the graphics and the sound fit perfectly and the movement mechanic is really smooth the only bad point is that there's a lots of bug, i respawned and wasn't able to move, the tutorial stopped me and killed me just before i entered the portal some little things to fix and the game will be very good !

if you want to test mine :) : https://itch.io/jam/blackthornprodgamejam2/rate/378986

Probably the prettiest game I've seen so far! There's a lot of physics bugs, but game is still fun and had some cool inovative features I've never seen like buying a checkpoint. Well done!

Be sure to rate my game and leave some feedback too :)

Very nice concept and lovely graphics.

Unfortunately, I couldn't even finish the ice planet due to a number of bugs, such as the character suddenly flying off to a distant wall on its own, crawling on some invisible platform in the middle of nowhere, or getting stuck at a respawn point.
Due to the lack of visual cues regarding gravity, it was also hard to tell whether some other unexpected behaviours were intended, like sometimes being able to get sucked in to a ceiling far beyond the reach of the character's jumps.

It's a pity, because the game definitely has its charms. If the core gameplay got quite a bit of refactoring, I'm sure this could turn into a really nice entry.

Thanks for the feedback, we will try to do more bug testing for the next jam for sure!:)

Good game! Overall very nice, good cute graphics and the tutorial in the beginning is bonus points for you! I love a good tutorial at the beginning of a game. I quit when my character spawned at a flag pole off the ground and was flying in spikes or space. I Couldn't do anything about it. Sometimes i was confused how gravity was going and had to gamble ... flying right into my death. Or hidden instant deaths you have no time to react on. That is frustrating. But again, overall good game!

Developer

Great game. Lots of character. Nicely polished. Too hard for me. I'd like to see someone speedrun it.

Consider speeding up those textboxes. Pressing space should fill in all the letters.

Bonus points for having a pause menu, settings, quit option.

Developer

Thank you very much, glad you enjoyed it :)!!

Really unique game! Although I feel that the games difficulty spikes after the tutorial.

Developer

Thank you for playing and for the feedback. We will consider making a better difficulty curve for our future games :)

Nice game! I liked the animations and the way the gravity worked. A few spelling mistakes though but still very good

Cool little game!

The art could use a bit of polish though.

Also, the music box song at the beginning changes pitch as you move faster or slower, i don't know if that's intentional but it gives the game a super creepy vibe. This is probably due to the Doppler effects being activated on the audio source.

Also I think the respawn should take less time. On challenging spiky areas it's kind of frustrating to have to try again multiple times and having to wait for the respawn animation.

Developer

Thank you for the feedback. We’re glad you liked the idea.

Cool game, but a bit confusing when you get upside-down. The graphics are really good but the sound dont fits well sometimes. But overall, it's very good!

Developer(+1)

Thank you:) I will definitely watch out for this in the next jam.
