Kind of like Tron meets No Time To Explain, cool!

I liked it. Definitely quite challenging. Like a puzzle tron game. I really like having to bump off of walls and the like to pull off wall jumps and having to plan your movements around a level. I think it's really interesting.

so this game actually reminded me a lot of my game but in a totally different type of implementation. I struggled all the way to the end. I had lot of fun trying to figure out how to pass each level. The controls take a little while to get used to but once you get the hang of it, it can be very fun. Really cool game here

Fun but gets really challenging maybe not for the right reasons (where your mouse cursor is mid air and precision)

Submitted(+1)

Fun game. I think it is a great idea that you have to avoid your own trail. Well done.

Much potench

Wow this game is VERY difficult, but feels really good to play! The deadly trail adds a lot of strategy. Maybe adding one extra jump in mid-air would balance it out a little better, but other then that this is a great and unique game.

This game is fun to play, the bouncyness feels good somehow. But that deadly trail makes in pretty hard. Maybe saved it for later levels. Then it will be better for player to get used to the controls anyway fun game.

Real nice stuff.
Very interesting ideas.

I do wish that there was a little more padding around the level, I kept accidentally clicking beneath the window because the ground was real slim.

thanks for playing, I wanted to include a black border around the whole game but I wasn't sure how to do it. also the game in full screen was laggy for me but I'm not sure if that's just my pc so I might try turn that on again.

Its quite good. I wish the trail disappeared after a few seconds when I cut myself off from the exit. 

Developer

thats part of the challenge! :D you can go one way only once

Submitted(+1)

The idea is really neat, but a little explaination woulb be nice. In the first level you said bounce on the wall "once", I assumed you can only burst once, I spent whole 5 minutes trying to do level 2. The mechanic is really clever, but kinda frustrated at times, it's too easy to die because the trail is everywhere.

But overall it's very good for what it is, great job :D

Developer

thanks for the feedback! yeah i definitely should have made the tutorial bit clearer 

Submitted(+1)

Original idea on the platformer puzzler genre. I'm not going to lie, I nearly smashed my monitor just trying to beat level 2. I didn't realize I could chain shots initially and wasn't sure of the exact timing when the gun was ready to fire again. Are you intending to continue development on this game? I think the idea has potential. Excellent work.

thanks for playing! I'm considering making some sort of improved version or sequel with better tutorials and improved mechanics maybe but im still not sure. I definitely should have explained the mechanics a bit clearer though, like how for example your gun resets everytime you touch a wall.

Submitted(+1)

Pretty good - may help to have an indicator after bouncing off a wall when you're able to shoot again.

I finished it *gray screen*
5/5

super cool man !!

Submitted(+1)

Nice idea, just needs a little polishing. Interesting how you used the theme.

Submitted(+1)

Made a similar game a while back, but yours adds a really interesting twist to that mechanic. Nice work, had fun playing it.

Submitted(+1)

It's a good idea but i somehow didn't get past the first level

Developer

thanks for trying the game out, can you tell what difficulties you had with the first level? 

Submitted(+1)

the burst wasn't high enough, and that's about it.

Submitted(+1)

An interesting concept to be sure but holy heck it's tricky. Level progression was good too. Well done~
