Nice game!

I enjoyed the gameplay. I upgraded all my points at movement so I got really fast, and the movement is really fluid. The mechanics of changing your equipment was really well made, as the physics of the objects in the levels, which you could move them around.

The demon portal surprised me, other than that you could have added more unexpected things. But for 2 weeks, it was a great game!

This was a simple, relaxed and fun game to play. The gameplay could have used some more polish, but I never so any big issues. Overall a good jam game. Well done.

Thanks a lot for playing my entry! A lot of things where planned, but due to time issues didnt make it into the game, therefore the polish is missing, you are right!

I learned that I'd make a really bad janitor :"DD I started the game, read the controls, completely forgot them the minute I closed the page and proceeded to make a mess on the floor for about 5 minutes. (I vacuumed all the plants though)

I actually really enjoyed the game. I had a lot of fun with it. I now have a headcanon that the elevator music we hear is actually the one Joe is listening to on spotify or smth during his shift. He seems like the type of guy who would be into elevator music.

Really nice little game. I enjoyed the upgrade system! Even though we didn't get to upgrade that much due to a small number of levels, it still felt really nice. It motivated me to work even harder at my janitor job >:3  I can see myself playing more levels of this.

The game was a little bit challenging when it came to furniture. Like, I understand that the furniture probably has a crush on Joe (who wouldn't) and they don't want to let him go, but those chairs need to back off 'cuz Joe wants to finish his job and go home :"DD The movable furniture made it a little difficult to get around the level sometimes. (I had to fight a chair at some point) (To get the last piece of trash) (Cuz they were both in the corner) (I won though >:DD)

Also SPOILERS IN THIS PARAGRAPH, but I also loved how absolutely calm he was the entire time :DD "Just a regular Tuesday. Oh hey, they spilled confetti and blood all over the floor again"

You did a really good job on this, well done :33 That bouncy animation of Joe was really nice hehe.

Wow, first of all I thank you for playing my little game and taking so much time doing a summary of your experience. It really means a lot to me!

I planned making a small tutorial, but not enough time.

Regarding the physics, you are absolutley right they are not the best friend of joe. It could definetly need some improvments.

Upgradesystem was a last minute decision.

Again, thanks for your time and feedback!
