    Hah, nice. The moment you fall into an inevitable death - until you notice you dont die, and just become small. Nice!

    I though I died when I fell of the island but I landed in a place where everything is bigger! I didn't like the blind jumps you had to do.

    @SidetrackGames thanks man! glad you liked it!
    @Pixelulsar I don't really like them either, but level design is hard at 2 am :P

    I liked it. You may chalk it up to 2 AM level design but I'd say what you have here is a game ABOUT blind jumps (and remembering which one killed you last time.) The infinite retry and restart points are all conducive to that play style.

    I thought the graphics were good. The story was lame but sufficient for pulling me through the game. Sound would have been a coolness multiplier. And, most importantly, it was fun. Brief, but fun. I liked the use of the theme in the scaled up and down worlds under the worlds.

    Good work!

    Nice job, though it could've used music or sound effects!

    There are some rough edges, specially if you don't go straight to the mines in the bigger world. Also, I am not particularly fond of the blind jumps, but maybe it's because this is not my type of games :-)

    I liked the idea and the graphics are blockish but cute ^_^

    @MD_Lancer If the web version doesn't work, try the downloadable version. Higher framerate and more stable.

    Loved the fall surprise "twist"! I liked the risky jumps!
