Great job! I really like the art and music! It is a little hard though. But overall amazing game!

Love the design and the sounds! So squishy. I have seen this concept a lot but you have done a nice job with it. I only with I could move a little faster or jump further. Good job!

Submitted

Very cool combination with the art and game design but the colors were a bit harsh for my eyes.

Submitted

Great game with clever puzzle design!  Amazing work with this one!

Nice game, but also too heavy for my brain :D

Thanks also for the walkthrough, so even if someone is absolutely stuck and his/her brain is split in half even in real life he/she could watch the part and move on.

Nice game.

I can see why this is the top rated game. Good Job!

Thanks!

A nice and accessible take on the Sokoban genre.

The movement and jumping is a little bit on the clunky side, but levels are short enough for you to not feel too punished by any shortcomings with the controls.

The music is pretty rad :D

Like the presentation and concept but I echo the calls it's a bit too hard! I appreciate the walkthrough though. Good job!

The left and right brains are not coordinated at all. LOL! I think it's great!

Well this is a well executed idea isn't it. Congrats team, you've made a really enjoyable game here!

5/5 would hurt my brain again.

Music bussing tho

I liked the funky music and the way all the assets danced together! I was surprised how hard level 2 was but once I saw your walkthrough I thought the solution was really clever. I was certain I had to jump on top of the spike platform, and no matter how hard I tried I couldn't quite reach it. I think It would have been nice if you made it more obvious you were not supposed to land there. Maybe a floating spike hazard could do the trick?

That's a good one!

Really nice art and the controls feel nice too =D

I love the music and the art! The level designs were interesting but after a while  got pretty frustrated lol. Great work!

Submitted

Really nice art!

I love the art and audio for this game. A lot of people did the "control characters at a time" concept, but I haven't seen any take the approach of using brains.

I feel like the platforming was way too hard. I got stuck on level 2 and gave up, as I failed to solve it after about twenty attempts. Unless I didn't understand the puzzles, it felt like the game was asking me to do near pixel-precise platforming. But, I may have just misunderstood what the correct solution is for each puzzle, hence my struggle. 

Overall, I think the game seems fun, I just wish I could've gotten further. Good job!

Hello, thanks for commenting! At the start of this jam I got a lot of comments of people being stuck, I uploaded a walkthrough (you can find it on my page or in the comments) for those who need it, as I understand that a game isn't fun when you can't get too far. I recommend watching the level you're stuck on and then just continue the game.

Good luck on the jam!

I've had the most fun playing this game out of all in the jam so far. It's a combo of the idea, execution on art and juice, and that super funky beat. I thought this was great and really well done. Simple art, but super cohesive and all contribute to the vibe. That animation when you combine is so satisfying. Great stuff

Dang, great looking game for 48 hours. Well done! Lots of folks did the 'same/mirrored controls for two characters' but they didn't have this theme and very few did platformer. The controls are pretty difficult here. And maybe a bit slow? 

Overall, very unique theme and excellent polish. Well done!
