This game was pretty fun, however the controls occasionally made the game more frustrating than it needed to be. It would have been nice to be able to move left and right a tiny bit. Like just to barely bump yourself over a pixel or two while on the floor. Other than that, this game was a lot of fun.
I really wanted to focus the game on one single mechanic, but I see what you mean. I was thinking of adding "recoil" to the chain so when you throw it, you move in its direction slightly. In fact, I'll add that right now. Thanks for the feedback.
