In what way does your game fit the theme?
The player character of this game is very old. He wish that he could live more life. Some unknow voice tells him that he could go back in time if he correctly manage to distinguish between good and bad. The more he goes further levels in game, the more he goes back in time and becomes young.

Did you write most of the code yourself and made all the assets from scratch?
I wrote all the code myself and made all game art from scratch.

Nice game, I liked the concept and it was a nice different mechanic that was enjoyable to play. I found after a while that a lack of variety made it drag on a bit, both with the words and the pace. I feel like as you progressed you could have sped up the incoming words a little or something.
Nice work!

Good for a first completed project. I think it could be worked with maybe some sort of power up system and maybe keyboard controls instead of mouse? Nice concept and graphics though, and some funny choices!

Keep it up!

I want to become younger when doing good stuff :) Really nice concept and game design :D

Developer

Thanks. I am glad you liked it.

love the 2D and how the text react with each other
there is a bug sometimes where it doesn't register when you put words in one side or the other.
Overall an interesting experience ^^

Glad to know that pixel art and voices turned out not too bad. I am actually a programmer and suck at art.

I LOVE THIS GAME! Like how you seeded it in my mind haha :) Fun little game and I like how one mistake takes you entire level of hard work :) Great job!

Developer

I'm glad you liked it.

I played the game for a while but eventually it gets a bit boring because I only have to do one thing.  Also I kept getting the same phrases. However, I do respect the effort you put in this game :)

If you are interested, my boyfriend made a game as well! Would be nice if you would like to check it out: https://just-stanley.itch.io/me-myself-and-i

I like that there is a voice explaining everything in the beginning instead of a wall of text ^^ The game is nice and easy, but sometimes phrases seem to be kind of repetitive. Good job though!! Rated  it.

Thanks.
