Having just played Tiny Crate, I was pretty excited when I saw that Harmony Honey had created other platformers, and well, to sum up everything, I wish this game's kickstarter hit its mark.

Walking off ledges rotate your world and gravity, punching blocks makes their gravity go in the direction you choose for them, spikes do the thing spikes do in every game (try to avoid them); it's a really simple formula that has so much potential for mind-bending, extremely convoluted puzzles, and this demo only showcases the very tip of the iceberg of that.

There wasn't any types of glitches or sore spots in the game that I could find; the only thing I could recommend the dev (I saw a few comments that ROTA might have a future) is to make the directional boxes have less movement when their gravity is changed so that you could potentially incorporate juggling more boxes in later levels. Aside from that, great work on this one!

All in all, play this game, find a way to support this developer, and 5 stars all around for this one!

Hi Haretro! All your games are super fun!

We have recently launched a new html gaming platform called Steemgg. More information can be found in our blog here: https://steemit.com/steemgg/@steemgg/steemgg-the-world-s-first-blockchain-html5-.... We are looking for indie HTML5 game devs to upload onto our platform. 

If you are interested you can join our discord channel https://discord.gg/YMH7nRp or DM me on discord. My discord name is stabilowl#7614

Super fun game, really enjoying it so far! My only thing is I think it would greatly help to have controller support for some of those really fast reflex moments, maybe its just me but trying to hit the block to the side right after hitting it up into the air is kinda difficult on keyboard. Anyways, really excited to play the full game when it eventually releases! Hope you enjoy the video! 

Thanks for playing and making a video! I am definitely going to include controller support in the full game, but I may release a demo update with it as well!

Love the way, as how this game is made. Love the simple pixel artwork! This game is pretty tough game, when you try to think what you must do (as i did lost the arrow block many times haha). But does work pretty soon, whenever i get the idea what to do.

I got this on my mind by the way, i was thinking this would get more items to pick (example like keys to open locked doors) as that really would be great. Or anything else what really puts something more good on the game! (i really do have many ideas on puzzle games, but keep it simple buddy!)

I really hope this game really goes on the top, and i hope others will love this game for sure! Good luck on the Kickstarter, as always, stay in good work. :)

It is an extremely cool concept of a game. the game is well built and well developed. although being a tough game -explaining why i was unable to finish the game- it is also a very fun game to play. good luck on kickstarter, Im sure this game has a good future amongst  gamers.

This was a challenging game. So much so that I did not beat it. Think I got to level 6 or something and then I had no idea what to do with that arrow box in the corner. Very cool game though. Good luck on Kickstarter.

Thank you!!
