I forgot to put it in the instructions so here it is:

THERE IS A DOUBLE JUMP!

Really fun game. Very challenging, but I always finished a round with the feeling that I could do better next time. It was slightly confusing lining up some shots as the barrel of the turret blended in with the platform. Otherwise super good. Nice implementation of the Only One theme.

That was pretty fun. Nice simple style, well polished and sounds good too. Once knocked myself off a platform with my own recoil which was funny.

Hey, we made a GMTK game too. Check it out!

Nice and Good and Hard and Orginal and Quick to Make not to Eat

I really like the concept, but it's very hard! I like how you have to always pay attention to what you are shooting because you can easily shoot through inactive platform and die :)

I really like the only one platform active, and shoot to activate mechanic; simple and solid design! I see an enemy coming, and try to shoot at them through the deactivated platforms, and fall to my death! That's a clever idea, makes me think more about every shot instead of just reflex! Double jump is a life saver. Great job on the game :)

Great game - it would be cool if you could get an item that gave you featherfall etc

Absolutely fantastic. Great twist on a concept I've seen a couple of times in the jam, the shooting to move your platforms makes it stand out.

I really, REALLY like how even though the platforms aren't necessarily physical, they act as cover for your enemies. It can make the decision between playing a platformer or a shooter tough.  Also, I don't know if it was intentional, but being able to jump in the air if you ran off of a platform was a great inclusion. It added quite a bit of skill that wouldn't have been there if you were only limited to jumping on the ground.

Great work.

Really great idea, shows heaps of creativity. Difficulty makes progress really exciting. 

I think it just needs a bit more polish, specifically the movement could be a bit better.

Very cool game, seemed pretty challenging but felt good once I got used to it.

Challenging, but very fun and addictive

Great idea, but still a little bit rough around the edges. I love the movement mechanics and the game feels awsome to play. A bit tricky but still really fun.

Hope to see this game become more than just a jam!

Thanks!

Awesome dual purpose mechanic! Game feel is also very satisfying and responsive, nicely done.

Fun game!  A bit tricky, but after a few attempts I got the hang of it 

Very interesting idea, but difficulty curve and controls kills the actual execution

Great idea, others have already said much more than I could have, I'd love to see this refined a bit more!

A few bugs that I posted on the download page, but the game itself is very fun.
