I had trouble figuring out I could make sideways pillars, but much less trouble realizing that it's easier to move once the pillar is used. Once I figured out the mechanics, the puzzle design felt very solid.

Interesting gameplaymechanic. Some of the puzzles where pretty difficult, but the difficulty curve itself was good. I will say the biggest flaw of the game would have to be the controls, as the game felt floaty and landing ontop of a pillar once you'd fallen of could be quite finnicky. I would often just zip right over them.

Keep it up!

I really liked it! never seen something like this.

Also, at the end screen there's something about having infinite pillars and being able to build pillars on the pillar you constructed before that I think it could be used for another game entirely, maybe you should try something with that once you think you're done with this one.

I really enjoyed it! I think it needs a bit of polish, but yeah!

This game that caught me off guard when you introduced being able to build a pillar on the wall! Fun use of the mechanic, though I think the player needs a significantly reduced hitbox size. The game has potential!

The controls for jumping off walls felt quite difficult to execute. Never really figured out how to do execute that consistently.

You’re right, it definitely needs some fine-tuning. The best way to handle it right now is to just hold onto the wall as much as possible

Nice idea with the pillar! Some of the platforming was a quite challenging.

Thanks! I’m glad you liked it.
