Theme interpretation
I was trying to make a hybrid between a bullet hell shooter and a rising lava pit but in the end the bullets are kind of a weak element in the game.

Absolutely love the concept! The platforming was interesting and challenging. This could be quite successful if finished

That's great! On some systems the game runs too fast, apparently. I gather you had no issues with that? And do you know if we're allowed to publish fixes now the deadline has passed?

I had no issues with speed. I felt the pacing was correct. I'm not sure if updates are allowed. It might be good to check the forums

Good work, a neat little platformer idea that plays well and has some sneaky level design in there. The bullets are simple but are placed in just the right place to catch you out. Only missing pieces are gamepad support and a bit of Adventurous music.

Glad you like it! I had not thought of controller support but I agree that would have been a good addition!
