Nice entry. There were some problems here and there though, but a good job nonetheless. :)

Well done.   I rated this five stars on concept because of how you combined different game elements here.  And the game runs smoothly and looks fairly professional.  This would make a great browser game, by the way.

Unfortunately... I was *terrible* at this.  Couldn't last for more than a few seconds.  But that's just my clumsiness.  So I'll try this a few more times.  Nice game overall.

That's very kind. Thank you. I don't last long, either, and I made the thing :)

I think this game was fun. Only thing I did not like was was the collisions, as labrattish said, sticky.

But apart from that I enjoyed it,  and I think the game should place high in the jam.

I really like word games and this definitely put a different spin on them for me. I was a bit sad that the words are predefined, rather than you being free to make a word around whatever is already there, but I had a lot of fun. Sometimes the collisions seemed a little sticky, but I'm sure with a few more games I wouldn't notice as much.

thank you for playing :)

I really like the idea of a platformer spelling game, and I think you've done a great job at executing it. It is very fun to play and there are some genuinely tense moments when you're just barely escaping from the bottom of the screen. I also like how the extra lives were implemented, they prevent the game from feeling too unfair and encourage frantic risk/reward decision making.

The effort you put into the audio is definitely something to appreciate. The sound effects all fit the theme and the music is very charming. Though the volume for the game is a little too low.

The game does have a few minor glitches, though. Sometimes you will get stuck in a wall when respawning or jumping above the top of the screen. Nothing too game-breaking but thought I would mention it anyway.

If you were to update this game in the future, I'd recommend adding a highscore feature. Other than that, it feels very complete!

In short, this game is inventive and a lot of fun.
