It's very fun and I like it.

Really cool game. Really clever concept and a good amount of gaming time. Only had troubles when I had to go down. Pressing DOWN+JUMP seem to work once but if I have several platforms to climb down and pressing DOWN+JUMP+JUMP+JUMP doesn't seem to do the trick. I had to release down and make the combination again in order to proceed. Minor issue, though.

btw you can just press down.

Best game of the jam IMO. Fantastic concept and executed very well!

Like another commenter for some reason I kept wanting to press Z to shoot and X to jump, but I got used to it by the end (I'm not even sure why I had that tendency in the first place!).

Really cool concept! Overall the game's design was really great - good art and mechanics, and great theme. A bit of music would have helped set the feel, I think, and I also found the spinning blades a bit frustrating to interact with. Perhaps adding more variety of enemies would help keep rooms interesting. Overall, excellent work! :D

Amazing, you should be very proud of this.

The concept for the game itself is ingenious and by far the best application of the theme I have come across so far. The pixel art is clean and the game has a great look, the map making menu is intuitive and easy to understand. I thoroughly enjoyed playing this through, so thank you!

Rated 5 stars, well done!

This was very fun and very interesting !

The gameplay create a lot of interesting situation where the player has to choose where to put the the hard room/the healing room/etc...

The game also have a good difficulty where the room are not so hard but the punishing dead still maintains tension and challenge.

The only things that was a little frustrating was that the avatar moved too fast so the platformer part of the game was a little tough but apart from that it was a very good experience !

I love almost everything about the game, except for the controls. I don't know about anyone else. But Z is not what I think of for jump/select and X is not what I think of as shoot/cancel.

Other than that, it's great.

I feel there isn't enough feedback on where you get hit, but apart from that, THIS IS THE BEST GAME IN THE ENTIRE JAM AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

please, expand upon this game. the posibillities are endless.

Really enjoyed playing the game! Was a lot of fun and something new.

I really like the idea although jumping with Z took some time to get used to and the building of the map was a bit tedious. Otherwise a very well made game. Good stuff.

Greatest game of the whole jam. I'd pay at least 10$ for Steam or Switch version of this. The concept is fresh and makes it open to replayability. Also, if this would incorporate downloadable pack or even customizable and sharable level, it would be a perfect Metroidvania. Also, a leader board would be amazing. I know it's maybe asking alot, but I do believe in this concept of this game and whish you all the best.
PS: If you need a composer for a future release, I'm your man :P

Developer

Thank you for playing! I like the idea of a level editor - that could be a lot of fun.

Excellent concept and representation of the game jam's theme. Metroidvania was one of the "genres" we talked about in our team but couldn't get to conceptualize. What you did is marvelous. The aesthetic is pleasant. One of my favorites so far.
