I got up the spawn roof :)


I think I play a bit too much (If you can't see the time it says 1:31)


I got alittle over 10min! Along the way i found some glitch where i died in spikes but, for some reason, due to my hook thing, i teleported further down rather than back to the normal checkpoint. Moments later i figured out there was a checkpoint for the area i was in if i backtracked alittle. So i inadvertently skipped some of the game. Was fun though!


controls r confusing for computer i dont have 3 hands maybe it whould be easer if up/w was jump

Graphics and music are amazing! The tutorial at the start gives me some Binding of Isaac vibes. The gameplay is very enjoyable to go through. The health pickups are well-placed. There is a decent variety of enemies. The level design was different enough, and was good at ramping up the challenge. Also really nice attention to detail where the day turns to night over the course of the progress in the game. There were a few times where I fell to my death thinking it was safe to land on, but I learnt eventually where to look to find the path. Great game! :D


Thank you so much! Glad you enjoyed it. I spent a ton of time on the day/night transition so it's good to know that it paid off :) The feedback is super helpful!
