make a full release but make it so that its like a full-on metroidvania and you can only carry a set amount of tiles

i think u should make a full release that is 20x as big as this game! 

I love the concept of building the level around the player, the graphics and the sounds also go very well together, nice job!

FINNALY BEAT IT

I would recommend giving more of a tutorial, since you wouldn't easily know you could shoot up or destroy shurikens , but other than that the only other complaint is I want more.

YOU CAN DESTROY SHURIKENS?

I didn't know that until I accidentally shot one!
If you completed the game without accidentally shooting one-
G O D S A V E Y O U

SUPERB!!!

Cool concept. The only things I'd improve with the game would be to make it more clear of what to do, how to do, and what you can do. Looking through these comments I've seen a fair bit of people not knowing you could shoot up or shoot shurikens for some of the game, it's also a little confusing to control(using "z" to jump felt a bit weird) and slightly difficult. Albeit it's flaws it is a creative game that I'd love to see more of and with the time limit it was quite amazing. 4/5 stars

This is awesome!!

Great work, I quite liked the concept of the game with the rearrangement of the map, it reminded me a bit of what they did with the editable dungeons of The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening (Swith).
I hope you don't mind but I recorded my playthrough of the game

Great idea!

Awesome!

Awesome idea.

Great Idea! super fun!

Great idea! hat was a fun 20 minutes :)

this game is amazing, and I love the idea, but I think that it could use improvement, the low health makes the game overly hard, and certain mechanics are never explained or shown through gameplay, I didn't know I could shoot upwards, or destroy shurikens until late in the game.

AWESOME!  I bet the sequel will be twice as good as this! It's already great with the basics, just imagine this with bosses and abilities! 

Really nice idea and realization!

This is a brilliant idea, executed exceedingly well. This will easily be one of my most memorable Metroidvanias. Thank you!

this is a very creative way to make a game, nice job

I love this! Beautiful job.

I ended up talking about this game in the latest episode of my YouTube channel. Hope you enjoy!

Thanks! I loved the video - it's really well made :)

If you're interested, I've written a bit about the game's design process, and a bit about some of the difficulties I've had coming up with ideas to expand the game.

Ingenious - I love it! If you fleshed this out, I would buy it

urgh, map was too hard. never made it to game

Amazing game!! The only one I ended up playing from beginning to end from the 2018 Jam winners :) Really nice concept and design :D

Amazing game! Such a shame I can't rate any longer, but the design is excellent! It's like that awesome dungeon in Skyward Sword.

I love that the difficulty is player chosen since you decide which rooms to use, and I found small bits of good design, like one of the first rooms asks you to shoot while the other one requires you to learn how to go up and down. Really imperssive game.

cool idea , i found myself replacing a level or two  to have an easier difficulty and solve by that my problem in the game. this is different.

the pazzle element  with it you sit and think without death punishment, followed by tension in your journey to the objective with a progress to lose if you die  . i enjoyed that loop several times to the end  of the game.

i will look for your next games.  thanks for making us enjoy this short time.

Unique, clever, and very fun. Also, really nice level of polish. 

Very cool idea. Took me way too long to realise that you can shoot upwards.

Wow

wow, very cool game. I realy like the concept.

i really like this concept, and feel it could be something bigger

Hmm... I'm surprised that there's no penalty for putting a room which links to void. If there were, it would add some challenge

But nonetheless, it's a good metroidvania with unique way of mapping and upgrades

Hey! Could you possibly add detection of keyboard layouts? On my QWERTZ keyboard, z and x are very far apart.

Small but fun!

I see you built this on PICO-8, any chance I can get a cartridge or file for it? Just doesn't feel the same to play on a browser :P.

That's a good idea - I've created a BBS page for the game now: https://lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=33693

I've also added the link to the game's description.

You'll be able to download the game as a cartridge from there. Alternatively, you should now be able to find it in Splore under Jam games now.

Ooh thank you :)
