It has a good concept, a cool soundtrack and nice art.
However I had a few issues with loading bar (sometimes it didn't charge, perhaps collision issues).
But it's still a nice entry. =)

Great art style. Fun to play once you get used to moving. Stage design could be better. Good entry all in all.

Submitted(+1)

cute idea and art, but i found constantly dying and respawning in the same checkpoint frustrating. i feel like the movement needs to be more refined.

Developer

Thanks for the feedback! yes you're right, the gameplay needs to be more polished

i really liked the art style i'm looking forward to do a game which share the same art style it's very nice you can go checkout my entry it will be very nice if you rated it and left a feedback.

Developer

Will do! And can't wait to see your game !
Thanks for the feedback and time to test out the game :)

Cute graphics, but having normal enemies take you to a checkpoint then having the abyss force you to start over is rather frustrating. I'd recommend having the abyss do like what normal enemies do and take you back to the checkpoint. Otherwise I really liked the creative control scheme! Good work sir :)

Developer

Thanks for the feedback! 
We'll be sure to test out different stuff since we're revamping the game now :)

Lovely art and a creative control system. The controls remind me of the "keep the balloon up" game I used to play as a kid, perfect for the theme.

Honestly, it's very rough around the edges and albeit the art looks pretty good, the mechanics don't really live up to that. Mad props for having an Android build ready at launch, though!

Developer(+1)

Thanks for the feedback and time playing the game!
We'll be sure to make the gameplay much more polished and better! :)

This is adorable! I love the character design and the atmosphere. I also really liked what you did with the background!

The game mechanics are very relaxing. And the ending gives a nice, darker touch to the story.

A really great entry. Well done!

Developer

Thanks for the feedback! Yes the artists really did their bests in making the game's atmosphere more dreamy. Glad that you had fun!

A beautiful looking game. The controls are interesting but a bit need more polish. The game was a bit too hard for me, but I am putting the blame on me having to use the touchpad.

Developer(+1)

Thanks for the feedback Njegosh! No not at all, I think I should've improved the touch controls for mobile/touch since your fingers would be blocking the player, that was my mistake! And thanks for trying out the game.

Neat concept. Controls are kinda finicky but it's not too difficult to handle. I love the aesthetic of the game. Main problem I have is just reading what's written. Light text on light background is hard to read. Also ending makes me sad.

Developer

Thanks for the  feedback! 
Yeah, kinda noticed the text problem after you said it! also it was hard to read on mobile, that was my bad.
Also don't be sad, we'll update the game after the jam so please stay tune!

hum this ending :'( Really well made cute ambiance, controls are a bit tough at first, but I get use to it quicly enough. And the game restart before it begins to be frustrating. Overall nice experience and nice gameplay

Developer

Thanks for the feedback and trying out the game! The game restarts when you get a gameover from the abyss or it turns 7am.
Glad you had a nice experience :)

It's a bit finnicky with its controls, but it's visually fun and adorable and the controls and core gameplay are fun despite their finnicky-ness. Good job!

Developer(+1)

Thanks for trying out the game! Yeah the controls needs more polished! >.<

Submitted(+1)

Very cute!  However, I felt some of the sections were a little too hard.  But maybe that's just my patience ;)

Developer(+1)

Yeah there were 2 hard levels but because of the randomization some of the hard levels may popup at the start!
Thanks for trying out the game :)

Submitted(+1)

Cute art! I like the fact that levels random, although it makes it a bit hard for me, but yeah, real nice game you got there!

Developer

You're right! we shouldve made the first few levels easier then bring in the hard ones later for the randomization. Thanks for trying out the game. :)

Submitted(+1)

Wow great job! Love the animations it's extremely cutesy and charming. Nice!

Developer

Glad you liked the game!

Submitted(+1)

Gosh, that was cute.
The randomised levels is a neat idea, but it did make the first obstacle on my first playthrough too hard to get past, having no experience yet. Maybe the non-randomised "tutorial" part could be longer, or something?

Developer

Thanks for the feedback! Yeah we shouldve made the tutorial longer with basic design and monsters to make the player feel more comfortable in moving the character :)
Thanks for trying out the game!

Great idea, great execution. My only problem is that the girls fairy hitbox is a bit weird.

Submitted(+1)

Clever concept and very cute design!! By the way, first thing I did was going to the abyss xDD Controls could be more refined but not bad at all considering its a game jam. Also for that difficulty not so sure about the time though.

Developer

Thanks for the feedback! Yeah we also think that the time x lives needs adjustments. :)

Submitted(+1)

Best execution of platformer without platforming that I've seen. Feels good to control the characters yet not too easy because of the time limit with the wisp. The (short) story fits perfectly and the graphics match it well. Great job!

Developer

Thanks for the feedback and time for trying out the game!

This game was so cute then I beat it and now I don't know. Fun time, but definitely needs either more possible levels, or just a set order for the levels. I saw the same ones a few times.

Developer

Yeah there's only few levels(its currently 7 levels). can only do so much in 48 hrs! so we made it randomize just to make it a bit longer.
Glad you had fun!
