Simple idea - nice implementation and very smooth gameplay! It would be grateful if you add some audio themes (from there https://gamesounds.xyz/, for instance).

Developer

Thank you! Your feedback is very valuable!

Thank you for the resource link.  It will be great to finish this game later.

Not very innovative, but still very solid for just one day of work. The jump feels very natural and fluent and I love that you can walljump. Visuals are clean and the task is intuitively understandable without any explanation. Sometimes the box placement seemed unfair though and I got stuck without anything I could have done differently. But that's understandable, as you had only 24 hours to tweak it.

Yes, it is really so simple but very nice to play.
Only problem that sometimes jump doesn't work for me. But overall it is cool! Well done

Developer

Thank you!

Simple but nice game !  I had fun playing it and the physics feeling is really great so, well done ! :)

The fact you made it alone in 1 day is also a great addition to the way you followed the theme. Joke aside, great job for making it!

Thank you for playing and for kind feedback!

Nice game! Cool concept and neat realization. I was wondering it it would be the same thing all along, then things started to go faster... It feels like an horizontal tetris.

The fact that you did it only in one day, and alone is quite awesome. Good job!

Developer

Thank you!

Yes, it was a nice experience :)

it really matches the theme good, Also it has some good idea on it.

I'd love to play your game if it has more features and skills, well done.

Cool concept!.... i think game can be a bit fast and rhythmic ... 
Amazing implementation in 2 days... art style suits the game..

plz expand this game further... you can add feature of destroying blocks and spawning them ... 

rated... all the best for the rest of the jam...

Developer(+1)

Thank you very much!

Yes, I thought about destroying blocks as one of options for beating traps.

Simple and fun, well executed overall.

Some small issues with the box generation i had a few times where i had either boxes a bit close which trapped me or a few seconds of boxes spawning above me along the same line, but it's not much just a bit of tweaking i guess. 

I liked the minimalist aestetic the fact you made it with thin lines on a black background kinda made me think of Vectrex games :) 

Developer

Thank you for your kind words!

Box generation problems have been pointed out already ; would like to try it again with the algo fixed (I saw you were planning to).

By the way, trying to stay above the highest crates is an interesting way to play!!

Developer

Thank you for your attention!

Yes, I plan to make some changes, but I don't think I have  a right to do it before the jam ends.

Nice little runner/jumper! Technically it's two colors though, or none at all, or all of them, depending on how you want to see it.

Thank you!

The base design in just ok, but many, MANY thanks for letting the player wall-jump, even if you have to find out for yourself. The adherence could have been more subversive tho

Developer

Thank you!

There is no adherence, but you can jump from walls while you are touching it's side by the character bottom part (wher legs maght be).

Developer

Do you have a GMTK Game Jam 2019 submission? I couldn't find one  in your profile.

I tried to participate, but personal business got in the way. The build I had made was functional but ugly and only 4 levels long, so I didn't submit it

Submitted(+1)

It's very addictive even though it is so siplistic. I like the graphical design of the game! Nice job!

Developer

Thank you for playing and kind words!

Puts an interesting twist on endless runner genre by having you decide whether to risk squeezing under the blocks, which is not always possible, or to try jumping on top of it. Also, I like that the guillotine gives you just enough time for one attempt to recover from a bad jump.

Developer

Thank you very much!

Cool game. The theme fits very well! Sometimes it was hard to judge if my block could fit through certain spaces. Well done!

Developer

Thank you very much for playing and feedback!

Tiny but cute mini-game.
I ran for 351 meters.
Maybe it needs a more thoughtful algorithm to generate blocks, it has much trap that makes it a dead end. I feel unfair about this.
And chip-tuned music and SE should make the game more attractive!
Overall, nice work!

Developer

Thank you!

Planning to solve generator problem after the jam.
