This game was made for the Weekly Game Jam 107.

Escape from your own shadow! It will retrace all of your steps, and if you're not fast enough, it might just catch up to you! Slash your way through countless colorful enemies, and kill enough of them to reach the goal and unlock the exit of the stage! You don't have to kill them all, but  it's not like they can complain when their torso and belly are several feet apart, *wink wink*. 

Controls: 

[A] and [D] to move around

[K] while standing, running or jumping to attack

[J] or [SPACE} to Jump

[R] to quickly restart the level

This is a pretty cool game! I like the visual design a lot, and the gameplay is good. I found it to be fairly difficult, but not unfair.

If I had any critique (and this is minor) it's that the controls don't feel quite "perfect" yet. I can't quite explain it exactly... they just didn't feel as smooth as I would have liked I guess.  But this is less a big problem, and more something I'd like to see polished if you plan to continue development beyond the jam!

Overall, really nice work! Keep it up :)

Yeah, gameplay needed a little bit more time in the oven, and we had to leave some mechanics out because of the time. Still was a lot of fun!
