Very nice! Kind of confusing to have the left/right player keys inverted though.

Thanks! I agree, it was on the list to change but work and time got in the way :)

Great game. Great job in this clone. Congratulations.

Very simplistic but also entertaining, good job. If I could give a suggestion it would be for there to be some difference between the two characters to make it more obvious which player is which.

I edited my reply to remove the part about including the player controls info in the game because I felt it was slightly to harsh and also lots of other people just put the controls in the description.

I wouldn't say including a game's instructions in-game is harsh criticism, especially when the controls aren't immediately obvious.
If I've learned anything from making games, it's that no one reads instructions.  I don't want to insult people who play games, but (and this is especially for jam games) most players are not going to read the instructions. You need to throw them into the player's face or make the game intuitive enough to figure out in seconds. I've taken to adding instructions to start screens and/or pause screens. It seems to help :p
