Really cool concept and fun to play. Simple art design, but really efficient. Music is missing unfortunatly, but a good little sfx to sell the jump. Level Design were well made and the pacing is just right. Good game overall !

The controls feel great and the levels are pretty good.  I really wish it was mapped to any other key, trying to hit ctrl while platforming isn't easy.  Great job.

Movement feels solid, I really liked how the concept of breaking walls is introduced and warped into floors! For me it felt like a hyper-puzzle game.

Breaking glass should be in every game!

That was very challenging! But super satisfying to finish! It definitely put my platforming skills to the test and I liked the literal interpretation of the theme!

Interesting idea, polished and minimalistic. Each level introduces a new mechanic and keeps you interested.

Like others say it gets pretty difficult in the levels right after the tutorial. Could use a couple more levels where a mistake does not mean death.

5/5 on the presentation for the great tutorial! Though I must say, its gets really hard to control yourself in the beginning. Reminds me of Plague Knight's movement in Shovel Knight, but you can run out of control. I also love the simplistic style of the game. Awesome!

It's an interesting idea, and the visuals remind me of the Magnavox Odyssey in their simplicity. However it gets rock hard really fast. Some of the levels are borderline kaizo difficulty for lack of a better description. But I thought it was nice.

Thanks man, really appreciate the feedback! I'm really sorry you got stuck in that level, I sure needed more testing on the difficulty. Definitely will be to taking it into account for future jams.

The controls absolutely murder my wrist but I LOVE the interpretation of the theme.
