How does your game fit the theme?
You can perform many different actions within the game, but you only have five different keys to control your character with, meaning you cannot access all the actions at once. You are out of controls.

really cool game idea!  loved the character and the graphics!


Interesting concept, it certainly has a great potential in my opinion!

I think it's worth exploring what other options could be added outside of getting a better jump or a faster character, those were a bit boring in my opinion.

I'm also a bit disappointed that no part of the level designed required removing the right/left button.  That would have made for a cool "no turning back" moment.


That was tremenously fun! I love the mechanic of swapping out the controls, and the puzzle based around it was really well-made. My only quibble would be with the spikes - their hitboxes from the side are frustrating, and they made the section where I have to jump up three times past them the hardest challenge in the game.


What a great little metroidvania! I love it!
Really good usage of the theme!


This was really fun and a good use of theme! Only wish it was a little faster. 


I like how you will literally run out of controls in this game.


Remapping controls as a game idea, wow! It felt awesome, I loved this game. I didn't need to use the terminal sometimes and forgot to activate them to get checkpoints. Maybe checkpoints could be triggered by just walking past the machine?

The spike collision box made me rage quit.
