Very difficult game! I included it in my GameDevNetwork: The Big Festive Game Jam compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)


Pretty difficult game but I like what you were going for! One thing to note when you're checking your collisions, cast a single ray downwards rather than around the whole object. Great job :)


Hey you made a great game. Well done!

It seems you took some inspiration from Super Meat Boy.

The game was really hard. It would have been nice if you could retry the level you just failed at. Having to start back at the beginning is a little frustrating and then not even getting the same second level the second time makes it very hard to learn how to beat the levels. It would be nice if the levels were in order and increased the difficulty a little at a time. 

Edit: Actually, this just dawned on me today. The levels are all random because the theme was surprise. Sorry, I totally missed that yesterday.

The saw graphics were pretty good and the particle effects were nice, but maybe a little bit too much.


Hello, simple but interesting, the fast decision mechanics is make it more fun. I love the random level selection.

In my opinion, the random level make the difficulty level different, It can directly jump to the hardest one. It makes the game pretty hard to finish. May be you can make the player wait for a second so they did not hit any collider before the fade screen finish. And on some stage it need some improvement.

Overall I love this game, really fun and challenging :)


Good game man i liked it!! but omg so hard


For me it was very hard to do a wall jump with W/A/S/D keys. I like this kind of fast decision game! Good job!


Cool idea and nice graphics! A little too difficult maybe? Great entry anyway, good job


Nice music! In some scenes it seems impossible to jump over certain platforms.

its good actually, but character movement was bit slippery, so im always fall when im on scene 2, 

good game anyways
