Good entry!

Looved the concept of repeated tries and having your past self be used in the actual gameplay. Really innovative and was quite inspired by it too! Cute artstyle and fun levels. Was hoping to play more of it. Looking forward to more of your stuff in the future!

Very innovative concept :) and Gameplay! I havent played this kind of game before! . I got stuck sometimes as I pressed Esc instead of R and I couldnt go back to my current run. it was a bit frustrating.  

 the game is really interesting and it could not better fit the theme!

Absolute Well done,

Very polished and really nice game. I love the artwork stylization, I love the game feel, and I love the ghost mechanic. Also, the menus are a really nice touch. Really great game one of the best of the jam I've played so far.

I got stuck very early and could not move. A bug?

Sometimes this could happen. The ghosts may stomp you into the ground :D

awesome game! cool art and sounds, really brings back the good ol days , i like the variety of challenges to progress thru the game, good replay value too! overall , I enjoyed playing ! congratulations ! keep it up!

The background effects were a bit hard on the eyes, but the game overall was pretty fun. I think the movement could be a bit snappier, with a bit less sliding on the jump landing. But other than that, it felt really good to play! As someone mentioned, the core mechanic has been used quite a few times, so it'd be interesting to see how it could be pushed further. Keep up the good work!

Really strong entry - would have loved an option to disable the background scrolling and glitch effect though, I found them a little overwhelming.

Interesting concept! The background scrolling caused me to feel a bit dizzy though

This is such a cool idea! My biggest issue was that escape got you back to main menu. Unfortunately I had some kind of twitch that each time I needed a clone I pressed escape. A confirmation or pause screen between it would fix that. But the game is great, innovative, nice art, story and it feels well polished.

Really enjoyed the clones concept and the overall aesthetic of the game. Only complaint is that I wished the clones generated a bit faster

Submitted(+1)

Loved the idea of using the past player movement to complete the stage! Chip-tune styled music and well polished pixel art is also nice :) Getting back to the start of the stage once died is challenging yet I liked that part too as it reminds me of good old hard core 2d games hehe.

The clones are a great idea, I like so much sound and the graphics.

Very nice game, congratulations!

Submitted(+1)

An fun idea and the art style is very nice and polished. Some of the sounds were quite harsh though and turning down "sounds" in options did not seem to effect stuff like speech volume but that may just be personal preference.  

The gameplay is interesting but the unforgiving nature and the fact that you have to do levels many times over quickly becomes repetitive. The puzzles were fun to figure out but getting to them to a lot of time and messing up meant waiting a long time to try again.

I enjoyed this immensely! Everything was so polished. Graphics and music were great. I love the dialogue, and the professor was hilarious. Excellent take on the theme, reloading your previous ghost in for platforming was ingenious. Very enjoyable little game! This fits perfect back in the 90s where I grew up. Nice job!
