Wow! That's definitely the best game I've played from that Game Jam :D

Loved it! My only gripe is that the hit boxes are a bit unforgiving, which is a small gripe because this game is a clear 5/5/5!

Developer

thank! if i polish the game up, i'll address that for sure. thanks for your kind words and feedback!

I've never played a cute game that made me suffer (in a good way) like this before! It's impressive how polished and well-designed this game is for a 48 hour game jam. Congrats!

The controls are great, so it never feels unfair. Really, great game, 15/15.

Very nice! Haven't got much to add, but felt the need to reinforce what everyone below has already praised - it looks and feels great, you've taken an awesome simple idea and made some really neat levels out of it, and it's a ton of fun! Good job all round!!

Developer

thank you!

Developer

thanks!

Loved this! First level I wasn't sure what to do - and the platform disappeared, I fell out of the world but .... didn't lose? It just sat there doing nothing lol. But after that it worked flawlessly. Really good job!

Developer

haha it seems you discovered a bug! i think i understand why that happened. thank you!

One of my absolute favorites so far! Great execution in all areas: graphic, sound, platforming and level design. I love how your idea turns a simple Super Mario clone into a challenging puzzle, that does not only require skill, but thoughtful execution and a clever idea in the first place. My only minor issue with the game is the respawn time: given how often you might fail in a level, it just takes to long to get back into action! Please turn this into a full fledged game - I would buy it in an instance!

thank you so much! your comment is well heard, i'll make sure to tackle that if i continue working on the game.

Wow, this is so polished! :) Puzzle part of platformers are always fun! I do not really see the theme but that is the only bad thing I have!

Developer(+1)

thanks! the theme was: be the last block out of many blocks = only block = only one; which is the clear state. the enemies began taking different forms as i drew them, everything was originally intended to be entirely square to bring the theme home.

I see! It makes sense😊 ( I am just a little slow...)

Developer

lol, you're right though, the design could have been more focused!

Submitted(+1)

It's very good! Damn, the level design is on point, the game is very polished and bug free, probably one of my fav, great work!

Developer(+1)

awesome, happy you liked it! cheers!

Really intelligent puzzles requiring a good execution. I liked the concept very much and had a blast playing it.

Developer

thanks! happy you had fun :D

Great game my new fav! So much content in such short time.  The platforming controls are tight and the pixel art is fitting. I made a platformer too but not nearly as good as this lol.

thanks! a lot of content had to be ditched unfortunately...

This game was SUPER fun to play. Honestly, this might have been my favorite game yet. It really felt like a complete, well thought out and balanced game. The only thing that could maybe make it a little bit better was a soundtrack, but other than that, it felt amazing to play - and it looked and sounded amazing too! Congratulations on such an awesome job!

Developer

thank you! i'm very happy you liked it. i'll try to learn writing music as well. maybe for another jam :)

Nicely done. I really enjoyed playing it. (There are two comments from me because I forgot I had to add one to vote.

Developer

glad you liked it!

Great aesthetic, well polished. I'm honestly quite surprised of coming up with such an amazing design idea! Not too ambitious(like I always do hehe) and simple, perfect for a game jam! :D

Developer

Developer

thanks!

Amazing game! 10/10 would kill my block brethren again. Interesting game mechanic, good puzzles and really satisfying to play. The only thing is that I might say to make the jump just a tiny bit higher so you can jump over creatures easier, as I found myself often jumping on enemies that I didn't want to.

Developer

thank you! yes i think you're right, the jump should definitely have been higher! if i return to polish this game up i will definitely make that change.
