I managed to find an impressive zero gotcha's. The art was pretty basic and I wasn't a fan of the jumping sfx. Perhaps you can add another level.

Thanks! When I failed at drawing the graphics, I said "Thomas all the way!" and made everything a rectangle :D
Also, I've already played, commented and rated your game :)

Hi,

 nice game, played and rated.I like the clean and simple graphics. looks very nice. missing a bit of music, but sounds are nice. sometimes text was a bit small for me (on full screen) and I didn't always notice there was text. would love to see more of this game.

Please feel free to try out my game and rate it here:  https://itch.io/jam/cgj/rate/474542

Many thanks,

Kris

Rated - Neat little game!  I really like the colors/look of the tile maps, the character glow is a nice touch, and the ending particles were really cool looking!  My suggestion would be to add some squishy animations to the player block.  Good job!  Please check out my entry when you have time, you can DL or rate from this gameplay video~ good day!

Nice little game. I like the simply design and colors. The player could use a bit more gravity so it doesn't feel so floaty when you jump. I like how the screens pan into the next. 

Nice job.

We created a platformer too. I'd love to hear your thoughts. 

Developer

Already played and rated it :) Guess I forgot to leave a comment, there are lots of games to play and rate in the jam, I'm sorry :) I liked your game a lot, mostly the art! Gameplay is fun but the camera is too close you sometimes don't see where you are going :)

Very good job! I was confused when I finished it for the first time. Good thing I can see my performance at the end

Developer

Thanks for playing! I wanted to give something to the players at the end :)

Nice entry! I liked that it told you at the end how good you were in avoiding the rules.

Developer

Thanks and thanks for playing! :)

Really nice tutorial level. I think you need a bit of coyote time on the jumps as I couldn't make it back to the previous screen after the arrows but it was nicely explained and presented.

Ah, that was a bit intentional as I wanted the player to restart if they wanted to hunt for secrets :) Thanks for playing and rating!

Quick, but cool! Nice Mechanics! My Game is: https://itch.io/jam/cgj/rate/476937, its called You thought! Its also a platformer!

Developer

Thanks! I'll check it out!

Hey! That's really nice! The only feedback i could give is that the camera could swipe a bit sooner to the next area

Thanks man, much appreciated!

I love that you tell us how many lies we missed so that finding all the lies becomes the actual game. Deceptive on multiple levels. Good job!

Developer

You can also have a different ending if you "listen" to what the game tells you :)

The first time I played the game I thought "wait that's it", but then it said I only found 2/6 secrets so I played it again! That's what was so good about this game, you have to replay it and do the opposite of the tips, which I thought was a clever concept! I also really liked the audio which was very 8-bit themed and I thought that was really good! I would have liked to have seen another level, but overall this is a really good jam entry!

I wanted to make it longer, but I was out of time with the real life stuff going on :) I'm planning on developing this further after the jam though. I'm a bit tired atm. I played and rated your game by the way ;)
