Wow. I like this gameplay. This mechanic with platforms, nice! But it was too hard for me xdxdx. I could complete only first level, but I enjoyed it. Good game.

Please, don't forget to check my entry "Jolly Job" :3

Hey, interesting game. The ice is so slippery. Now I know rage games aren't my cup of tea. Regardless it's an amazing game. Audio is great as well as the visuals and animations. The only thing I would wish is if either there was more time on the timer or the player was less slippery. I wish the gameplay got harder overtime. But then again it's litterally impossible to beat the 2nd desert in my game (because I didn't playtest it enough so Idk why I'm talking) Still good game.

Developer

Thank you for your feedback, I definitely should have budgeted more time for playtesting too.

Yeah same. XD

Ok, I LOVE this game, it was EXTREMELY hard, but fun. I had to ragequit a few times btw.... If it was up to me, this would have SO many more ratings.

Thank you! I'm happy that you found it fun.

ARRRGH, this is the classic ragequit game that keep you trying and trying just for the challenge!
To beat the first level I died roughly 20 times. XD
The main problem is that the main character is slippery (and that's ok, it's a sort of icy thing) and sometimes you die because there is no way to stop its inertia in time.
I really liked the "creating platform" mechanics and the fact that this affect your size and "health".
Maybe you could remove the timer because the game is already hard... adding another difficulty layer like this could discourage some players. :)

Praise the sun!

Yes, that was a rookie mistake, I playtested all the mechanics in lvl 1 and it became too easy for me, so I made it harder each time I played.

I was thinking of making the level easier but keeping the timer.

Thanks for the feedback.

Cool concept!  First level was  pretty difficult though haha, little ice guy is definitely slippery.

I made a platformer too, but my main character is fire~

Developer

Thanks. My first Jam so I made a few rookie mistakes. I unintentionally made the first level too hard; as I was playing it again & again, I adjusted the difficulty upwards each time and it just ended up that way. Smh

Haha together we've got the Juxtaposition sub-theme in the bag. I am looking forward to playing your game.

That music was damn groovy, nice work!

Developer

Thanks, I'm glad you like the music, took me longer than I had planned to select the tracks.

My gosh, just be humble and accept the damn complement. Sheesh, people these days... =P
