Great design, simple concept, fresh taste!
When I first glanced at this game, It made me think of Solar Jetman on the NES. Upon playing it, I realized it's a very different style of game. I really enjoyed it!
I, like some of your reviewers, very much enjoy games like this. At first, I didn't know what the waypoints where for, or what the red and green switches did. it was a lot of fun figuring out those aspects. I enjoy that sort of discovery. You've done a fantastic job of boiling down some very simple game play mechanics by allowing the character to only be able to move and jump. The real fun is discovery, puzzles and timing your jumps.
When I first noticed the occasional tile getting replaced with an incorrect tile, it made me think of some of the games I played on the NES that glitched like that. i immediately thought, "What a great touch! It's vintage!" I very much enjoyed the gradual decay in visuals and audio. Again, I enjoy that sort of discovery. It's a great mechanic to keep people playing. I found myself asking, "I wonder how messed up it will get?"
This is definitely a "lean forward" (thinking/strategy/puzzle) game, as opposed to a "lean back" (mash on the space bar) game. It's unfortunate that people don't realize that and get bored so quickly. It's truly a fun game with appealing retro aesthetics.
After reading some reviews I noticed a trend with people who didn't like this game: in general, their reviews are void of proper grammar, spelling, punctuation and complete sentences. Interesting coincidence, draw your own conclusions.
