Glad you enjoyed it!

Reeeeeeally love the "going so fast you catch on fire" mechanic, but I couldn't figure out how I managed to kill the turrets.

Down the Hole starts at 16:24.

Really enjoyed the video! I'm glad you enjoyed the game!

To kill the turrets you need to fall fast

This was GREAT!!!! Very well done!! Music, style, design, everything!!!! 5 Stars all round!

Thank you so much!

I also like how you taught with level design, and gave those "AHA!!!" moments.

I'm glad you noticed that. Tried to make the game simple, fun and easy to understand

You should delete the "Down The Hole_BackUpThisFolder_ButDontShipItWithYourGame" folder and upload the game again.


Very neat game design and transitioning between the scenes. Looks very smooth.

Haha, yep it was my fault for rushing. 


Thank you! Fun fact, is all one scene ;)

(+1)

Very well.

No problem. I know, I also do it mostly with one scene. This way one does not need to handle OnDestroyOnLoad things.

Fixed

this game is great! when i looked at the entries for the jam, i was greeted by lots of programming art and some unprofessional looking games, but this changed my view entirely! great game!!

I'm glad I exceeded your expectations

Very, very nice game! Very much enjoyed playing it and I love the little easter egg at the end ;). Gameplay is smart and complicated, and puzzles were great. I would love to see you expand on that.

I'm glad you enjoyed it!

I do hope to expand the game further after the jam.

great concept for a jam game! the visuals are fantastic and level design was amazing! the difficulty curve was smooth but i feel like it was a quick jump at the last couple of levels, the century guns made the game a tad bit too hard but it is a jam game so its understandable. i also quiet liked the fact that this whole game was inspired and expanded upon a mechanic in portal. overall a good game. i'll give it bonus point for good 3D art and visual design

I'm happy you enjoyed the game! The game was a tad bit rushed but still worked in the end

This game is really great! I'm usually really bad at adding challenge to my games and this one nails difficulty, it's super fun!

Thank you! Tried my best to give the game a learning curve and difficulty!

(+1)

Great i love to see where is it go

Thank you, I guess we will all find out what will happen after the jam

(+1)

good concept, good game, enjoyable , I beat it XD

I'm glad you enjoyed it! More updates and even a full game is planned after the jam.

This game is great, from the level design to the visuals and the menu.

First of all the menu, it looks great and new. Also it's very simple, good job on that. Then when you press start game you don't even go to a new scene it just smoothly drops the buttons into the void.

First level, immediately you know you can use A and D to move, then the question comes how do you jump? First thing you do is drop into the void to see what happens and you instantly understand what the entire game is about.

The level design is really great, the only thing I found a bit confusing at first were the blue tiles that you have to break through. Wasn't quite sure why they killed me at first.

You keep some progress when you die, so no matter how bad you are you'll probably get through every level, but it's still fun and speedrunable.

I love that you can build up momentum, I've seen games with the mechanic where you can fall through a hole and come back from above the screen, but it's so fun building up momentum and crashing through the glassy blocks.

Overall great game, worth checking out, also thanks sonicboomcolt for checking out my game!

Holy cow that is a long review but a welcome one! Thank you and I'm glad you enjoyed the game.

In the future I'll work on making the different mechanics more user friendly and understandable.

(+2)

Super fun concept! Really interesting gameplay although it has some rough edges. I'd love to see it more polished!

I'm glad you enjoyed the game! 

I do plan on making this into a full game once the jam is over and the results are in, That will come with lots of polish and a lot of fixes!

realy fun the best game in the jam!!!!!!!!

I'm glad you enjoyed the game!

(+1)

Nice game! Cute visuals and simple but fun gameplay! 

Actually I think you still need to work a bit on level design (I've completed everything and I'm pretty sure you need to redesign 'Look out' level)

Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed it! 

The levels admittedly was rushed and need more work, currently I have been doing more testing with the levels to make them flow and work better.

(+1)

Nice! Good luck with that, levels are quite important 0:

PORTAL 10/10

Thank you, I did my best to give it a portal vibe.

Awesome game, you took one of the mechanics from Portal and expanded on it in a new and interesting way. The music also sounds like it would fit right into Portal 2! Really cool game.
