Sym is my first try with a platform game, i build it from scratch with flashdvelop/as3.
Sym is about making choices, strange symbols, sadness and logic gates.

I'm not the best at puzzle platformers but I enjoyed the concept of dark/white and inverted gravity. Kinda confusing for me since I'm so bad, but it was fun without being too frustrating.

Didn't run into any bugs as far as I know, though the X hotkey and E hotkey felt a bit awkward - I would rather the elevator key be on Q and the editor key be somewhere far away that I could never accidentally press.

Nice job!

Did you get the idea from the 300 game mechanics article (http://www.squidi.net/three/entry.php?id=1), or it was your original idea? Just curious )

Thanks for feedbacks! Yes, keys needs some adjustments, in the meanwhile you can play with arrow keys instead of WASD.

No I didn't know that article, but I know there are several games with similar mechanics, like SHIFT

Well I tried it but found it a little confusing, I think the graphics and level design are the main problem. I think its kinda polluted, everything is shaking and there is too many places to look on the screen. Also losing when touching corners of the screen felt weird.

Although I did like the character animation. Smiley
