Very cool dynamic game. Beautifyl athmospheric, especially music - it's excellent!
In addition, bonuses drop makes game even more interesting and various.

Nice arcade experience! As always, great use of particles :D
The game playes well, is really easy to understand and the idea is fun. It could use some more variation though. None of the items feel amazing. I'd say they are more like very situational.
The atmosphere is great. The music does a lot!
Very enjoyable entry :)

Such a pretty game with a nice and dark pulsing track! The particle effects were really pretty. I was a bit unlucky with the upgrades it seems, as in my first games I got none and then the ones I got ended up kind of screwing me over. :D Maybe an indication of what each ability does before using it could have been nice, but understandable that it's like this now because of time constraints.
Cool game though! The animations were smooth too.

Nice game as usual! Simplistic concept but very engaging, I ended up playing for quite a while. My only two nitpicks are:

  • Powerups don't feel all that useful. They aren't worthless but I never really cared about getting them. Maybe having them be temporary buffs or something would have been better
  • Due to the random nature of the game you sometimes spend time just waiting around.

Overall though great game!

Graphics and music are great. For the gameplay I think it needs some tuning, and explaining what the powerups do. For example I find it impossible to jump between two rather close falling blocks without getting killed, which means waiting around for them to fall, rather than trying. The chests could fall with more regularity because sometimes there are large gaps without anything, and then suddenly many chests that get insta-crushed.

Felt very polished and addictive enough for me to try to get a high score! As always, I prefer platformers with some momentum to the character (rather than instant acceleration and very fast gravity), but it's just something to get used to. The gameplay felt good overall, but I think some things could be improved:

  • The powerups could be explained (as @yozy says).
  • Also the fact that you can double jump is not stated.
  • Most, if not all powerups felt basically useless to me. The one I found the most useful was the teleport, to get out of a sticky situation. I can't really imagine likely situations where the "spawn a column here" one is useful - especially when it often pushes me to the side when I try to cast it airborne. Because of this the powerups almost felt like debuffs (I could have gotten money instead).
  • The fact that the bottom of a falling block is instantly lethal is annoying. I think the challenge would still be high if the blocks actually had to crush you. As it is, I often ran into the situation where two blocks are falling next to each other, and it's basically impossible to "thread the needle".
  • The RNG for chest spawns was a bit iffy.

Other than that, nice graphics, pretty glowy particles, and the music didn't get old/too intrusive even after many plays.
