Greatly executed game. The timing of the platforms and when they're going to appear is crucial to this game, yet sometimes, the timing of platforms appearing / disappearing feels inconsistent.

Really clever design!!!! Definitely super engaging and I really enjoyed playing! The idea is really well thought out and has a really good balance between being fun and challenging. Really great work!!!

It's very challenging, the kind of game I could lose hours to, very nice!

I feel it a bit hard but that is a strong idea that is challenging.

Good take on the one platform theme! Pretty diverse challenges despite the few mechanics! I like it!

Nice work! It looks great and controls very well. It might be a bit too difficult, but that might just be me.. xD

I stuck at level 7 xD

Notice that you can skip levels with the ] key

wow the idea and how you execute it was amazing  its just kinda hard but ya know what they say GET GUD

Submitted(+1)

This was definitely one of the better only one platform platformers I have seen in the submissions. I really liked the shadowy indicators you invented to show when the platform will move. I liked the controls and the challenge level of the game too! Thank you for making this game I had fun playing it!

Really cool and similar to a different game a played on this jam better executed better. The difficulty certainly scaled up, which was a welcome surprise!

I'd greatly appreciate it if you tried my game as well!

Thank you! What game it is similar to?

Also, I rated you game and wrote a comment. Great work!

Seems like it should be a frustrating game but the mixture of the music and the effect of the forming platform makes it more relaxing. Then the vertical platforms happened :( those were challenging.

Developer

Thank you very much! The level with the vertical platform is hard. If you want to try the next levels, you can use the [ and ] keys.

This game is really FUN. I love platformers, especially ones that time you to do tight jumps, and when you combine that with a lot of ways to make the gameplay go further, this game is really fun. Awesome job!

This was super interesting, I liked a lot about it. If you don't mind some feedback:

  • There should be a little more forgiveness when jumping, right now you can only jump while on the platform, but it would make timing a little easier if there were a few frames of forgiveness.
  • The segments where the Platform goes sideways could use a slightly wider collider.  I found them a little too difficult / frustrating.

I liked what you did with the panels fading in, it gave me plenty of Forewarning.

Developer

Thank you for your feedback!

I thought about making the game more forgiving, but I didn't have enough time to do it.

Great game and use of the concept! I'm pretty crap at it and only got to level 7 but still a great game! Keep up the great work!

Developer

My high score in your game is only 8, so you are close...

Notice that you can skip levels with the ] key, so you can try the rest of them.

Submitted

Yeah i replied to you on my rating page. You know you can use right click to summon the bullet back to you right? The instructions for the game are below the broswer build of the game as well as  in the about section ingame

Developer

I am sorry, I read the instructions but somehow I missed it. Now my high score is 21 :-}

Submitted(+1)

Fun game :) Nice and simple gameplay, going right back to the game when you die makes it addictive too.

Submitted(+1)

Wow, nice idea with only one platform! Was fun to play. :D

LIKE.

I enjoyed this (though I suck at platformers so it was pretty hard). I was skeptical about the segmented-levels instead of just being endless, but it turned it more into a puzzle game about planning your moves instead of just a reaction-time based game -- though it still requires good execution. It'd be cool to expand on that element if y'all wanted to make a post-gamejam version. My only suggestion would be to maybe start the first platform of the new level in the same spot as the last one of the previous level -- to make the level transitions less jarring. That would give the best of both the endless and segmented-level worlds, IMO.

Also, the art is great!
