Okay let's take this apart.
Game Design+Theme- Now this take on the theme is being done by many in different ways and I feel like yours is at an awkward midpoint where it's not a very fun aspect of the game. On one hand we have rage levels with lies littered everywhere that you need to memorize and they work well. On the other hand, you have a game like Race:Track of Lies (one of the best entries) where you learn the lies as you go through different levels and get introduced new lies as well: Gameplay evolves as you advance. In yours, the addition of checkpoints in levels that aren't especially huge makes it feel like a game with small levels, where there's barely any lies to get through so the game is easier to get through and doesn't play on that mechanic as much. So yeah, not the biggest fan of the level design (There were still some very nice things like going through the entire level and getting to a wrong direction point). Still means to hit the theme, but could be better executed. I ended up dying more to enemies than to the lies. Which brings me to my second point: The jump is way too floaty! It doesn't jump very high yet takes so long to be resolved. A quick modular jump, please!
Art: Could have put in more work on that, but then again, you only had 72 hours so it's understandable. Simplistic art is fine as long as you go for the same style. The style between enemies, player, and platforms was way too incoherent.
Audio:The music works well I think but is a bit too quiet. The jumping sfx is nice but feels weird with the dying sfx which makes that square sound a lot more human. Maybe add some sounds for enemies too? The voice is very annoying as meant to be so good job on that but it's too loud compared to the rest.
All around fun: It's some basic platforming with slightly challenging parts that turn out to be lies (sometimes too predictable, and avoidable considering the double jump). The game should focus more on one specific aspect of what we currently have so that gameplay feels more "full". It would definitely contribute to the fun.
It may sound like Im saying the game is not good and it's not what Im saying. It's better than quite a few other games I rated and at least I didn't get extremely bored a minute in. There's some good things here and there, and practice (+ more time to playtest) will get you to make better games.
Keep creating!

Thank you for your feedback ! It was really helpful ! I am sorry to hear that you did not like all those parts, but I will make sure to improve it to my next game !

I want to say this first, I'm not a fan of rage games. That being said, I think the level design was pretty good but the Medium level was way easier then the Easy level. In my opinion the jump animation was really slow and made the game feel weird. The graphics are ok, the music is not bad but too low in volume, the voice in the levels was the most annoying thing I've heard in my life but again I don't like games that deliberately make you angry.

Fun game

Rated. What's nice with this game is how consistent the theme is throughout the gameplay. Though, this game could use a bit of polishing here and there, for a lot of very minor details (but of course, that depends on how much time you had on your hands). I had fun playing the game, which is always nice.

Good job overall! :D

Developer

Thank you for your feedback ! I really appreciate it ! Yes, I should polish more, but I just had 3 days to make it all by myself.... :)

The music was weird, but I guess it was meant to match with the game trolling me. Doubtlessly your game is a liar.

The jump seemed to be glitched (or I did not get something): generally it was a normal double jump but sometimes I jumped so high that I could not even see some of the platforms below. At first I thought it depended on the platform appearance, but I could not reproduce the same results.

Hope you find the time to rate my game.

Hi, so i played the game and now im gonna comment about it. Lets start off by saying that it took wayyy to many links and open pages to get to the actual game lmao. Anyways, now about the game.. The art is cool and the music is chill, but i find the player to be a little too slow. When the enemy things start chasing after you, you gotta do some super ultra cool parkour and get to safety, but the player is way too slow. The levels are well made, but the game doesn't seem to fit the jam theme. Seeing as how there's no deception involved. Besides that this is a fun, solid entry. Kudos! Cya!

Hi, thank you for your feedback, what do you mean by "doesnt seem to fit the jam theme" ?  The game is based on trolling the player with lies. There is fake platforms, invisible blocks, "psycological damage", "hearts that quit the game", fake paths, fake easter eggs. I am sorry to hear that. If you can, try to play the game again... And sorry for the difficulty on the hard level, I know that is too much.... Sorry... Try to go left on the levels.... there is a surprise for you :)

Good game, simple but efficient art, like it!

The graphics were fun and simple and it worked well with your animations. Great difficulty level!

This game is quite good. Graphics are simple and don't hurt the eyes. Animation really brings this character to life. Sounds are pretty neat. The gameplay reminds me of a Cat Mario. The only thing that was freaking me out during the play is that annoying girl that was telling me how useless i am. 10/10  best insulting  simulator)

Good game. I like the jump response. Please consider rating mine as well.

Even though the graphics were simple, the stretching and squashing of player when jumping made it really satisfying to play!

Nice simple game, you need to memorize the levels so you don't die, and it's hard even in easy.

my review:

The game is very nice. I found the voice ver funny with the laught :D

the graphic were very simple but very nice.

the background music was good too!

I had fun playing the game!

And the game fits to the theme so nice job on this one!

maiby one thing you could improve is to add a death animation. I could be just a explosion or something. 

Keep up the great work!

maiby you want to check out my game too :D

Nice game !

I would have prefered to have the jump key on the spacebar but it's fine.

The controlls feels great, and the voice when dying is really fun !

For some reason when going backward on the hub area and trying to enter the door, the game just crashes so I don't know if it is an important part of the game.

Otherwise it is great ! Nice job :)

Developer

This is actually right, when you go backward you think that there is something important, when you get to the door, the AI says "See ya" and then Application.Quit().... yes, he lies...

yes I am an elite gamer :p

Could you get through the elite gamer door ?
