I also included it in an article of my favorite games from this jam here.

Beautiful, fun game! I included it in my compilation video series of the Low Rez Jam games, if you would like to take a look :)

Had a ton of fun checking out this game! Cool little concept, and super impressive given the requirements of the game jam. Cute little game with an awesome feel to it that throws me back to when I first started playing video games years ago :P Feel free to check out my video on Umbri below!

UMBRI | "1ST PLACE!" | LOWREZJAM2016

Congrats on 1st! :

Well deserved first place!

This game is truly great! I love the simple premise and controls as well as the general feel of the game along with the audio and visual theme. Very interesting take on a puzzle game for sure.

The only thing I could think of as being missing are sfs for when the player gets hit, and perhaps an animation to go with it. Often times I didn't notice myself die until... well until I couldn't find myself and the game reloaded the stage. (especially when I fall through one side of the stage to the other and right onto an enemy)

Really feels like a near-complete game though. Super fun!

This game is perfect.

That's quite an amazing little game there! Easily a close to a full game with some minor gripes ( I too didn't quite catch the hold Z and press, and got a bit annoyed when I was pressing a direction then Z instead ) but other than that, wow.

Best one I've played yet ^^ Art is just astounding. I'd recommend putting some feedback on the "player is holding down Z, waiting for direction to be pressed" state. It took me an absurd amount of time to figure out how to flip gravity because I don't read text in games on principal :P

Lovely all round. I really liked how well the levels were built around the small resolution, using it instead of fighting against it. Additionally everything looks and sounds great, nice work!

Best game i have seen so far! Amazing art and gameplay! This rather looks like a full game instead of a game jam game indeed! 5/5

The art and music is wonderful! And I do like the puzzles, although I wish the ninja was a bit slower.

I just loved every single bit of it, congrats! 5 stars

5/5

Fucking awesome! As others have commented, this game is an impressive feat for a jam game! I have to give it a perfect score!

Really beautiful graphics, the gameplay was a little hard though, it seemed i had to press both z+x to jump?

I really like the game. It looks nice and plays polished. I'm impressed by the level design and gameplay ideas.

Very nice! Feels really polished and full. Would love for there to be some more sound effects for different events!

I always try to avoid drawing borders on my pixel art, but this game has taught me that pixel art may be great when you use a strong color edge . Thanks a lot!

Holy shit. That's a seriously complete game you have going on there. Interesting mechanics, challenging levels, great art... Also, took me a while to figure out how to use the shuriken. Nevertheless, good job!

Really well executed, looks like full blown game rather than game jam entry!

Very, very nice! Controls stumped me at first - maybe a walkthrough on the intro level would help? Really beautiful game with nice level design. Simple concept with level difficulty ramping just right!

Great game. Good job.

Great game and concept! Great Pixelart! If you could switch walls by just walking into them it would control even better. But it's awesome!

Wow! Very cool! The gameplay is spot-on, and the animation is so fluid! ^^ I"m amazed!

Although it doesn't make the game easier, you can just hold Z to warp at any point in time. ^^; Wondered if that was intended or not.

Aesthetics are really nice, especially in the animations and color palette. Its a bit hard to control where the character goes. otherwise great game. I really enjoyed it!

This is a really great stuff, beautiful graphics, good music, fun gameplay. I had hard time to figure out the controls (which was written in the game, my bad).

Looks like there was lots of effort put into this! Very polished game!

Controls were a bit wonky, but overall very good game.

Fun game! Stunning pixelart and animation!

Very nice game :). Hard to tell if you respect the 64x64 grid with all these effects :p but this is a 5/5 for me.

Nevertheless, the flip control is not very intuitive.

Great artwork, and a pretty compelling game. Love all the attention to detail.

Love it! one of my fav games! 5/5 rated!

Good game overall. Nice graphics and soundtrack. I found the gravity shifting controls a bit clunky though.

Roh (View their submission) · 230 days ago

one of the best ones of the jam, amazing job. beautiful, and elegant/cool mechanic.

Well developed concept and design! I can see myself obsessively trying to beat this game. A puzzle-platformer with a gravity manipulating ninja. I'm in.
