Under rating threshold (show) This game is great, what about making an 'compass' to show what direction you are facing? Maybe something for an 'Easy Mode'?? - 5 stars!!

Under rating threshold (show) Very fun game. Definitely one of the more interesting platformers. It was fun to mess around with too. I love the sound track as well. It reminds me of the songs from Donkey Kong Country. ^^

Under rating threshold (show) You really ought to mention somewhere that when you change perspective, your 3-D position is the furthest 'forward' point you could be from the current perspective. Took me a while to figure that out.

Under rating threshold (show) Awesome game and idea, but I really dislike having to use the mouse to rotate things. Would really rather a button that rotates things automatically. Overall great game though, 4/5.

Under rating threshold (show) Let me tell you, Dev. I HATE platformers. I hate Mario, I hate Fancy Pants Adventure. I suck at platformers and I hate them for it. I enjoy this game, very much. Me saying I enjoy a platformer is like... Well yeah, this is the ONLY platformer I enjoy.

Under rating threshold (show) One of the best platformers I have seen. It is challenging, fun, makes you think more about it rather then tests skill (which is cool), and interesting from the perspectives.

Under rating threshold (show) Brilliant concept executed well in a short span, but I've one constructive criticism. Never thought I'd be saying this to any game developer, but would it have killed you to add a more rigid camera control?

Under rating threshold (show) Really cool concept, but it is kind of confusing since the character seems to move in the depth axis in odd ways, for example rotating 180, can move the character in the hidden axis. This is not in and of itself a problem, but I'm having trouble figuring out the rules on this. Does anybody understand this?

Under rating threshold (show) I really do not like timer games. I can understand an objective being timed, but the entire game being timed takes the fun out of it for me. I like relaxed, casual games to play. But I'll give you a 5/5 for the innovation in this.

Under rating threshold (show) @Purpleyoshi I am guessing that they are impossible to jump over to add to the puzzling aspect of the game - "how do I get past this without hitting it?" LOVE the concept, like everyone else.

Under rating threshold (show) I was thinking earlier in the car that this game somewhat is like street arrows. youre probably thinking what the hell but hear me out. if one arrow is pointing up on the 2d sign then youre going forwards in 3d time. Same as arrows pointing down. So if you jump up on this game in 2d mode then the 3d mode compressed in the same place means that you are propelling yourself forward but it dosent matter because in 5 comments this will be gone and this will no way be a top comment.

Under rating threshold (show) It may have come out before FEZ, but FEZ was being developed long before this game and the creator talked about it all the time, including in a documentary that came out shortly after this game was released. Still, it's a really fun game :D

Under rating threshold (show) This was cool and I liked the 3d changing perspectives concept but I would prefer a simple rotate button rather than having to do it manually. It's not always easy to get the perspective you want to 'stick'.

Under rating threshold (show) I like the idea and it is a truly marvelous and novel idea. I however kept having issues with the perspective change. It was sticky and I had a very hard time getting it to the angle I wanted it at. I also had a hard time figuring out which angles were allowed and which weren't. I enjoyed this though overall I give 4/5 stars. If you could just include a little more information or instruction on the perspective changing that would be very much appreciated.
