Neat, though I would combine the throwing and placing mechanics for versatility. So if you pick up a ladder, it would just add to your total amount of ladders instead of going on a separate counter. But nice difficulty curve.

Clever idea, it makes a good puzzle game.

Really neat concept. Sometimes the character can throw the ladders way too far. Liked the level progression also.

This is a very cool concept!

the idea of the game was really good, but I found the throwing ladders thing a bit frustrating. I wanted to be able to pick up ladders and then place them normally with left click, but instead I had to throw them miles away from where I wanted them. Sometimes I also got a ladder stuck so that I couldn't get on top of it and pick it up again. Even still, with some polish the game could be something really cool, and either way it's a great game for your first jam! Good job!

Like the concept and the aesthetic.  This could be fleshed out into something really good!
