I liked the story but if I'm honest, it's just too hard and frustrating for me

Submitted

Nice game :) well done!

Submitted

Very nice game, i like a lot the theme of the game, is really fun and have a great feedback ! I rate your game, take a look in mine. :)

Submitted

I like the graphic aspects of the game despite its simple look. The game as a little too hard for me personally, but the movement felt really nice regardless.

Submitted

a bit hard tho... thanks for the checkpoint it saved me!!

Submitted

Cool game. I really like the colors.

Thanks goodness you put that checkpoint in there. This is very hard. I like the music, I like the story element. That makes me want to keep playing. I did find it annoying that touching the spikes when I was on that platform killed me. I think they should only kill you if you land on them. Then you had that one with like 6 spike traps on one platform to jump between :p  Also, you really have to maximize your jump distance to get onto some platforms.  I saw how you rewind, but not sure that's much different then a start over. This has potential on it's own in general, I'd like to play it again to learn the story but think it needs to be a little bit easier.

I like this challenging platformer! The music was relaxing to listen to, as well as reading the story of David! It might be good to scale the difficulty a bit more, or to make the distance between checkpoints a little closer.

Otherwise, great job! I actually submitted a challenging platformer too (according to others), so if you want you could check it out!

Overall nice submission!

A little too difficult for a game that is trying to tell a story but I really like the design. Great work!  I'd really appreciate if you could also rate my game! 

Submitted

Nice game, but I think it is too frustrating and the jumps are too big. However, great character movement! Feels really on point.

Submitted

Great game, I almost quit because I found it a bit to hard. But I'm glad I kept playing.

Submitted

I like the graphics and music but the game itself was too hard for me, couldn't get past the row of spikes. But I haven't really played many platformers so maybe that's just me. The game looks very good though :)

This a very frustrating game. I know it's supposed to be hard, but is it frustrating. I like the movement and the music in the background, but it really needs patience. Overall, it was a decent game. Great job and I hope you learned some new things along the way!
