Excellent aesthetic. The concept is cool as well. I would be interested to see what more complex levels would look like.

It can be hard getting a feel for the energy behind collisions between you and the hero.

Thanks for Playing =)

I had to do a bit of tweaking with your Mass vs The Hero so that you could affect  his momentum while not being able to straight up brute-force him into the lave for example. But yeh the physics are still a little janky, I guess perfecting that just would've taken more time than I had.

I think it is a clever take on the theme, and you've met the art criteria well! This could be a really cool full release with a bit of polish!

Firstly, I really like the cool GameBoy feel! I found the controls too difficult to work with though, which made the levels frustrating sometimes. But its a really interesting idea for a game,  and the music is great!

Thanks for the feedback =) 
I know the physics can be a bit janky at times, but I found that in some areas it means there are multiple ways to kill the hero. Guess the trade off is more difficulty of control

I couldn't go beyond the first screen. The idea of getting the game boy palette is good :)

Huh, what was the issue? Should just be able to walk to the right and begin the game
