Really loved the game. Extremely relaxing and the music really helps you get into a flow. The graphics are also consistent with each other, and the combat is solid enough for the concept. The 3 included abilities are all extremely useful, particularly the slide-dash. I think my record was only about 2,500 - but I have the reaction speed of a sloth.

I also encountered a few issues/things that might not be intended:
 - Two minotaurs can easily stun lock you in an aggressive volleyball game
 - A late jump off an edge can cause you to enter a respawn loop where you immediately fall again.
 - Sliding into a bump allows you to jump twice in the air (though, I like it)
 - Jumping after falling into a pit allows the player to overlap the bottom of the terrain
 - Occasionally ghosts spawn/respawn underground and are hidden by the ground, making them impossible to dodge.

Honestly blown away with this fantastic work. With a little more polish and depth, I could totally see myself buying a game like this. Good fun.

This was a really nice relaxing game that I thought fit in well with the theme of decay. I enjoyed trying to achieve a high distance while listening to the pensive music. The sprites all fit together nicely and the art style was consistent. I was never quite sure what the fountains did, though.

The only small gripe I had was when I was being ping-ponged between the axes of two minotaurs without the ability to escape. That's a pretty small issue, though.

This was my final score after a few runs

Really great work :)

Thank you very much for the positive feedback! The fountains are meant to make you slightly "younger" but they had a very small effect because they were quite often. I think I should have made them less frequent but more effective. I also had a bar at the top that showed how old you were but I got rid of that because I couldn't make look as good as I wanted.  It was all a big balancing act which I feel I didn't execute as elegantly as I could have but I will probably work on this game more down the line because of all the great feedback I have been getting from friends and family!
