interesting, it followed the theme pretty well, but the sound was really annoying :/ graphics would have been better if it wasn't just a cube xD but overall good game: :)

Thank you so much  for rating my game. I'm sorry the audio infuriated you. This is the first time I did any sort of audio or music. I'm mostly just a programmer! Thanks for the feedback though! :D

I enjoyed this game a lot!  I think this is the first game that was able to strike a balance between "The Game is a Liar" and not being overly annoying. This game lies, but some of the rules stay consistent throughout the game.  I think this is key to keeping a deceptive game fun.  The was an audible click that I kept hearing on the music loop which got a bit repetitive, but that was my only issue with the entire game.  Great job!  You deserve WAY more ratings btw.  https://itch.io/jam/cgj/rate/476728

Jump should be reworked, it's a bit too low. Platformers are boring if your player isn't allowed to do a little mistake when jumping.

Graphics are pretty basic: it looks cool but it is very simple.

Game is fun, I played 6 or 7 levels I think and I had fun times.

Thank you for your feedback! I'll keep this in mind. Glad you had fun though! :D

Nice game, and a nice try overall! I liked the background music and the sound effects! Fits the theme too! I would just like the player to be able to jump a little higher, i was struggling to jump from platform to platform.

Thank you so much for the feedback! I did think the jump should be a bit higher, but I tried balancing it with the jump boost platforms. I'll keep it in mind though! :D

I really really liked this game! I think you did an excellent job on the level design. Although just simple blocks, you fine-tuned the levels very well. The controls felt nice and tight. I'd love to see you take this idea to the next level and attach a theme and story line to it. This game has good potential for speed runs, which may be a good idea to add. Maybe a clock and a high score to see how fast you can pass each level.

Great job!!

I also developed a platformer game. I'd love to get your thoughts! :)

MAN!
I LOVED THIS! I had a legit good time playing your game

The controls were snappy and so clean. The difficulty curve was perfect! Although the last level.. I found out that there were hidden blocks, but just couldn't get the timing right to jump across. So i didn't have the patience to get too irritated.

If you wanted it could be fast paced too, which i love - the quick movement and the fast reset. Perfect!

You're a great developer!

Thank you so much for playing and for your time. And ya, the last level was just supposed to be a troll level, but it is possible.
