Just want to say that yeah, it was a hard game, but you taught the player through the environment rather than through a long section of text. I felt like I was intuitively learning how everything worked, not having my hand held or just being completely in the dark. It was really fun and I played it until the end. Really great job!

The game was a little unforgiving, which got frustrating sometimes, but overall the difficulty was pretty good.  Some minor tweaks and this would be great.

Really cool concept! The ticking is stressful, but not in a bad way, and the art is simplistic and retro but very nice. It all fits together: music, art, sound effects, gameplay becoming more frenetic each time...

Really interesting jump and run game. Gameplay feels solid and the big clock is a nice gimmick as well.
U should add WASD, most gamers feel more comfortable with that ;)

Developer

Thanks! WASD is definitely on the to-do list!

I have not finished this because I'm bad at games and can't figure out level 4, but I really like what I've seen! The music and ticking sound builds up the tension really well and I love the concept of the moving clock hand always coming for you.

Developer

Thanks! I regret not introducing the teleport mechanic properly, but as a hint... you have to reach the far left teleport before the clock hand destroys its partner.

Yeah, also you should have made the jump for the closer one clearly impossible, it seemed like you might be able to make it, just a little higher and people wouldn't bother with it.  Really cool game and I did complete it.

This is one stressingly fun game! I couldn't get through stage 3 (don't worry, not because of bugs, I'm just not persistent enough) but it's already a fun experience! Great job, man! :D

Developer

Thank you!

Now THAT was a fun game! I really love the level design, music, art, everything. 

Definitely one of my favorites of this jam, I would love to see updates to this game. :D

Developer

Thanks! I plan to update it within the next week or so.

Cool concept, nice platforming. I was able to avoid death by going through a wall around the clock hand on one of the maps, which I assume is not intentional.

Developer

Oops, must have missed a spot. I'll see if I can fix it. Thanks for letting me know!

Unfortunately, was not able to start the game on mac. macOS said "file is damaged".

Developer

Ah sorry, turns out I will need to actually find a real mac to build it on.
