Follow this little robot through his tiny adventure in a dark place. It is filled with pits, spikes, and lasers, and he'll have to progress his way to the next door. However, it constantly changes, adding new elements as the countdown above repeats over and over. Try to complete the level and avoid making it too hard on yourself!
Controls are as such:
- Left/Right= Move left and Right
- Up= Jump up
- Hold up= Longer Jump
- Esc- Quit to title screen
! There is no saving !

-This is my first game jam submission that I have felt like I completed. The difficulty curve is sharp, I know, but I hope it doesn't stray too many away from the game. Thank you to all who game support during my stream (shameless plug: https://twitch.tv/surgdev), and for the help and ideas. Until next time! -Surg
Bugs So Far
- Possible collision glitch at the start of level 1
(yes that one jump on level two is possible.)
Kwisarts Level 54
Too much waiting :T Not a fan of the stepping sound xD Also, try to avoid using the click on the main menu. If it's not needed in the gameplay, it means you're forcing us to get our hand on the mouse even if we don't want to for a brief second, which is not very convenient
I had to gave up on level 3 :( It's not particularly hard, but there's so much waiting, and waiting isn't fun, especially when you're waiting to do thing you already passed.
The exit being on a countdown didn't bring much I fell, but the stuff being added was really fun, and I wish there was more of that, maybe on shorter countdown but adding a few spikes each time, not everything at once.
Gameplay wise, maybe you should have been a little more generous with jumping off a platform. There's not much instances of that, but "the jump" in level 2 could have been way more easier with a few frames of whatever-the-name-is-I-forgot.
Anyway it's a cool little game, and it seems to have decent content, so good job!

@Lone and I just played it, and while a lot of things could have been better (learning curve, stability, etc.), we generally liked the concept of adding to the level as a penalty for not being fast enough. It is a concept that could be further developed - good job :D
Grace Level 15
I got most of the way through the laser room before i gave up. Too hard, no checkpoints, and the lasers kind of felt like mindless waiting. The platforming was surprisingly competent though.
RCDv57 Level 2
I like the artstyle. It is simple and easy to understand.
I hate that jump near the top on the second level.
You said it wasn't impossible, but it might as well be.
(also getting stuck in the pit with that jump in the first level is equally as miserable)
Other than that its a pretty solid game and fun use of the countdown theme.
Kinda neat. The timer to make the door appear is kinda pointless in my opinion. Basically, you just have to stand around until it opens. It doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me and it is just a waste of time. Had you applied this concept a little differently, it would make the game more interesting.
The only two times I found we're possible to end up waiting for the door was level one or level two (if you did it really fast) Level 3 was too long, with the addition of the laser cycles, and level 4 spawned it in 5 seconds. Level 5 (end level) was more of a cutscene than an actual level.
This little feature was actually a framework of what I wanted to go with if I had more time (and probably will work on post-jam) where the door would open, then a longer timer would start, if you waited past that, the door would lock/disappear, the level would drastically change and expand, and add an extra level of intentional difficulty. (the idea was to do this for completion points), but that never came to fruition.
Thank you for the feedback! -Surg
var MP; Level 3
Liked the concept and the art!
There's a bug (is it a bug tho?) I'm sure you're already aware of. Once the alarm for the first level goes out, you may get trapped on the level (to the left).
I don't know if it's a bug now that I think of it, but I couldn't go or jump anywhere. Maybe if it's not a bug and there's a way to solve it, you can leave it for a further level so that players don't get super confused at first!
