I had alot of fun! There was a bit too much constant peril from falling but beyond that was a interesting experience and a fun game. The controls were pretty neat once I got the heand of it but still the game felt just a bit too many nails tough. Good job!

Glad you liked it ! As I said in the comment below I've planned to do an "easy-mode" to fix that difficulty problem :) By the way you have powerups across the map and one of them stop the gravity for 2s, but they're kinda hard to reach. It will be fixed in a future update ! Thanks for the feedback :D

Pretty difficult to move around, avoid ennemies, kill them, and never fall on the floor at the same time. I couldn't go past the first bunch of lasers. I much sure to understand well how the teleport works.

The concept is good though. And the dash movement felt really satisfying when I managed to perform some combos. I wish there wasn't so many instant death so that I could mess around a bit with the weapon! I'm sure with enough practice, the game allows some cool movements!

Hey Itooh thanks for the feedback! I've planned to do an "easy-mode" in a post-jam update where you will have more than one life for a better difficulty curve. I've reached the end (~300m) after something like 3 hours of training so yes, it need a lot of time!
