I tried this out during the Game Jam so I was really pleased the that the team made changes according to our comments! No more awkward map rotations or impossible movement keys which made the game playable! Really great job here! I've played this game before but I think my timing for this game was still a bit longer than expected... 8min 20 sec...

This was a game I wanted to try out during the GMTK Game Jam 202 but didn't have time to do so. I've briefly read through the comments in the submission page though and that made me want to try this game out. To my surprise, they actually made changes to this game to enhance the game.
First of all, I think the concept is quite well made. Randomly assigned keys as well as rotating map. It seems difficult at first because I was getting used to the controls but it was pretty fun as I kinda got used to it. There was also a clear indication of sound for when the map is rotated or when the keys have been reassigned.
The overall pixel art design was appealing to me and I find the slime extremely cute in its movement as well as its animation.
I do want to point out though, I would prefer a minimap that tracks my location live so I know how to get to the end goal. I found myself just moving in circles finding the right location to the end goal which was fun in its own way but I got frustrated after a while.
Overall, I enjoyed this game and look forward to another update, if any, to this game.
P.S: I got 10m49s in my first try.
