Why the game-play is Stupid

it feels good to dance.

Loved it, really brilliant  mecchanics and fun to play. Love to see a full release with a game :D good job

I appreciate your comment a lot!

We're going to keep working on this, so feel free to follow us to get updates.

Absolutely brilliant! I'm trying to think of any cons but really the concept is there and the idea was executed very well... I would love to see this game fully developed into what it can become, due to the great idea, graphics and controls. Good job!!!! =]

Thank you so much!
We decided to keep developing this.

Feel free to follow us to get updates :)

This is a great game! The only problem that I encountered was that the spike hitboxes are larger than they appear to be. I like the tight controls and difficulty. The core mechanic was very unique!

Thanks a lot for your valuable feedback.

We are going to fix the hitboxes and keep developing this game.

This is a very good game, the trial and error the you have to use to beat this game is very nice and you didn't overdo it. 

Thank you for trying our game and for your nice words :)

Yes I beat it! Wooh that was hard. Nice job though.

Great work, and thanks for playing :D

We made it hard towards the end to highlight the rearranging skills mechanic, and to prevent the player from just using the same original sequence to complete the game. Glad you enjoyed it!

This mechanic is very cool! Are you planing on making more of it?

Thanks! We're planning to continue developing this game. We believe that the skill mechanic has a lot of potential, especially once more skills and levels are added.

Looking forward to it :)

Thank you so much!

Feel free to follow us to get updates :)

Really tight controls, pacy soundtrack and visual flair!

Thank you :)

Great Game! It's so hard that i couldn't pass here

Hello, thanks for trying the game out! Happy that you enjoyed it. As for the final level, it's actually possible but you need to rearrange your moves to the right sequence to complete it.

The sequence is: Whirlpool > Wall Slash > Dash > Forward Swing

This video demonstrates the sequence
