This is a really smart platformer with interesting mechanics. Definitely in my top 10 games of the jam! The fact that you made all of the assets during the jam as well definitely means you guys need more attention! Excellent work!

Super awesome game! interesting mechanics that was really satisfying when you get it right :)

The visuals for this game work so well! I just thought the platforms are a bit too small. But an incredibly good game for the theme.

You can check my gameplay here: (I did play a few games so just check in the video)

I played this way too long!

Fun game and very interesting concept, even though it hardly fits "out-of-control" topic. I liked the challenge the game provided, but the collision boxes and character's momentum are making the game just extremely difficult.

Great job! The 2D / 3D visuals mixed really nicely and the core mechanic fits really well with the Jam theme. I did find the leaves a hard to land on, but I'm also not the best at platformers.

One of the best games right here. I didn't complete it very fast, but got 141 flowers on the way! Great job dude.

This game has a simple mechanic, but it allows for a lot of chaotic self-expression as you climb the tower. It's kinda like pruning a bonsai tree into a platformer. I really enjoyed the blended 2D/3D visuals, it's something I don't see too often. Great work!

I really loved the idea and the execution, the art was on point and gameplay too. it smartly fits the theme.
The only small critic I can give is that the control felt a bit slippery while the leaves/cuttable flowers were tight to jump to
Great entry, congrats on your work, and best of luck!

The art style was great and the out of control element was fun! Loved it!

Fantastic game! The mix of 3d and 2d is gorgeous. I love the progress bar on the right especially.

Really cool concept and pretty fun to mess around with

The keyboard bindings felt really awkward and I really think you should tweak the air control

But aside from that it's great !

nice game its really fun

I love the animations and overall look. I felt a bit uncomfortable with the air control (or maybe the leaves could be a bit wider) but the jumping between the flower petals is really awesome. Great job!

Really cool concept and satisfying game-play. Only a little frustrating when I fall all the way back to the bottom, haha. I really enjoyed art style too. Nice job!
