    Hi Nestor,
    I'm giving you some feedbacks.

    What I liked:
    - The graphics, the lighting. Most of all I appreciate the character design of the final boss.
    - The phisics-based puzzles and the idea to add a platform sequence to give more variability to the game experience.

    What I didn't like:
    - The main character looks too similar to Indiana Jones. He should be characterized more.
    - The collisions should be improved to make the interaction with the environemt more fluid. Sometimes the character is slowed down or blocked by a small collision and I found that a bit clunky.
    - The jump mechanics is not that clear. I was blocked in the room before the final boss until I randomly found out I could climb up using the jump "bouncing".
    - The platform sequence is very difficult and long. It's a bit annoying to repeat many times the whole sequence from the beginning. Maybe it should be better to add a checkpoint.

    My thoughts also.
    but yes great little game, it has kept my interest.
    your puzzles are really nice.
    you should take a look at a game called "limbo" that has some of the best puzzles iv seen in a 2d platform.

    you could also add a dark and mysterious feel to being inside the tomb. maybe you can add depth into the back drop, not just have torches on the walls, but see far into the darkness maybe have things animated like moving puzzles that give you clues to fix the broken puzzles u could be facing. possibility are endless and it looks like you are off to a great start.

    Thank you for your feedback!
    I'm glad you liked puzzles and level design :)
    Firstly, I recon problems with character controls, so I'll fix them, don't worry.
    Secondly, Game is planned to be divided into 3 chapters. Each will be more corrupted like current boss. Character design is so "Unoriginal" on intension. It will be explained in the plot. My next stage of development is adding the beginning plot development.
    You can follow the development of my game on GameJolt, if you are interested ;)
