Really cool game! I love the idea of running in all directions.

The graphics are very successful and I love the atmosphere.

Thanks for your nice comment, Jeux!  And thanks for playing!

super hard game at points

once you get a sense of where the goals are, it should get easier!  keep at it!  :)

Great game ! I love the fact that each character plays in the same world but it still feels like a new level 'cause you fo to new places.

I think finding the final dude might be too easy to feel like an ending. It took me 30 sec while the other took me 2 minutes so.. yea.

It's super cool that you made it so that if you jump a bit before you hit the floor you'll just jump again as soon as you hit the floor. really pertinent for that kind of game.

Level design is a bit confusing sometime but I guess that's okay


Great work ! :)

Thanks a lot for the detailed feedback, Rando!  Glad you enjoyed the game!  :)
