Don't get fooled by the first impression, it gets tricky! Haha, don't have the patience right now to try and beat it, maybe later.

Good job!

Hi @planetserve, there is something called "Flow theory" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flow_(psychology). Take a look at the game section: balance of skill and challenge.

Sometimes, if the game is to hard in the initial stage, the player does not have chance to get skills to play it and they can go away too soon. It´s not really a rule :)

But it´s cool!

Hi @frcol. There has been a lot of study behind the psychological aspects of games and why/how we play/interact with them. So whilst I agree with you, I would like to point out that I made the game to be challenging for myself. People of the right metal will complete the game regardless of the difficulty (that is another area of psychology).

Whilst in the progress of writing the game, someone from the Scirra forum spent two hours completing the game. My point is, there are people out there who enjoy a challenge and these are the types of people that the game is targeted at.

Thanks for the feedback though...

Nice work, @planetserve. Very challenging.
The beginning is very difficult. I died about 20 times just getting to that rotating platform. In addition to the life counter at the top, I would suggest making the player flash or something to indicate that you lost a life. At first, I didn't realize I was killing myself every time I hit the floor. Personally, I have a short attention span and gave up. Like you said, there are different types of people to target and I guess I'm not one of those targets.

Kudos for accomplishing something that I'm still struggling with...completing a game. :)

Hi @Lancifer. If you hit the floor of course you will die! - Heh, just kidding. The game really is for hardcore gamers. I just wonder if anyone can complete it?
