Its a cool idea, I like the music and i also got stuck in the wall lol.

Constructive crit: The controls need changing, most people are right handed so movement feels pretty natural using the arrow keys (Also most lefties have adapted themselves unwillingly to this style). Just my opinion but buttons should be where its natural for your left hand to be (This varies but i think its pretty safe to use A, S and D).

I would like to see you continue to work on this, if not look forward to whatever comes next haha :)

Well that is actually something of a debate. See I don't think its a think of rightie or leftie, its just preference. I like controlling things with my left hand (as you would on a game system controller, which the movement controls are always on the left), and so the arrow keys feel unnatural to me.
I have a question for all of you that get stuck in that one wall. Do you try to stand in the wall on the pink platform before hitting the block to change colors or are you just happening to get stuck?

I understand what you mean. Maybe i made a bad example - allow me a second shot (My only interest is to help btw i hope you dont find this combative).

Imagine that you pick up your controller and the directional pad is on the other side of it instead. Sure you could get used to it - but that will require some patience. I just think its risky to go with a button setup that is completely different from most web games in its category.

I would say the same thing if you were making a first person shooter and not using ASWD for movement.

Oh and about the wall stickyness i think it changed colour as i was in-between layers but to be honest i cant remember exactly!GenkiGenga2012-03-01 16:38:49

No, I know you are not being combative. But yes, I see what you are saying. If I would continue with this game, I would defiantly add other features to it, such as being able to switch controls. I would also fix the wall thing lol :D
