Really amazing entry overall! Everything is so polished: the gameplay is tight and addictive, music is boppy and fun, sound effects all fit nice and the leaderboard now has a good name at the top (will probably be beaten soon lol xD) Massive kudos for creating everything by yourself, too! Thanks for submitting this game, it's awesome! :D

I think you're being a bit generous calling the music good lol, but thank you very much for the compliments! Unfortunately for you though, JJ has stolen the top spot back...

Combine Tetris and minecraft's sand physics and you get this gem. Well done really good idea.

Really fun game the only thing I was not a fan off was the spawning at moments in the game I felt that I had to get lucky with the drops and then play the game because at times the game would not give me any options. I think the easiest way to fix this is to change the sand? (the pixelated blocks) If you could jump through those blocks before they touched down I think it would give the player more ways to navigate the area. Other than that GG!

Really creative platformer and use of the theme! Great theming on the art as well!

Personally didn't like the music (which isn't such a big deal with a mute button) but the gameplay  is rather addicting :)

Platforming and Tetris, what a combo! Real fun idea, and neat interpretation of the theme. My only gripe is that there were a couple of moments when a new block was coming down and I felt that I was out of options of spots that I could jump to in order to survive. But the game looks and plays great and I had a ton of fun playing it! Good job!

Thank you! Yeah I wanted to try to make a better spawning algorithm, but that would have taken too much time. For now, you'll just have to kick you past self for putting you in that situation =)

Very nice game! The idea is pretty original it was very fun to try climbing up these kind of tetris pieces. Got killed by one of the spike but I pretty proud of my score! :p It is a nice touch to be able to change the color theme.

Very good job ! Keep creating games!

PS: Very cool font btw ;)

Developer

Thank you, the font is my proudest accomplishment

Honestly my favorite that I’ve played in the jam so far. I love the tetris influence on it, and the fact that you can actually get trapped. I think things could fall at a slightly higher frequency, I felt like I was waiting at some points. The color change option and online leaderboard are great additional touches. Very cool game!

Developer (1 edit) (+1)

Thank you! Both the drop frequency and speed do actually speed up as you get a higher score. I suppose I should have made it a little faster though =D

really nice game, love the tetris-like feel and the mix-up with the whole climb or you're dead mechanic.
the game is really good, one thing i will say, a color change button would be nice to make it easier to see, the contrast make it hard to play.
