Feedback request: Pob (WIP)
I would really appreciate your feedback on this demo, this is my second attempt to create a casual game (Ill get it right one day )
This is still very much work in progress, it still requires some polish, music and more levels (only 8 included in the demo) etc. But thought I would post it here for some feedback before investing more time and effort on it.

I would love to hear what you guys think about it especially,
Ways to improve it
Worth pursuing or ditch and start again?
Thanks for your time.
Not to shabby, I think. It has the possibilities of a game. I'm not a huge fan of using the keyboard, but for this game, it seems about right. One quick fix needed is when you fail on a level, what do you do to restart? Turns out the jump key works - but it should just restart right away.
Also - timer levels. You should add some good sounds to let the player know time is running out.
But really - it's a good start. I'd keep going with it, think of some more things to do with tiles (I like what you have already), maybe some enemies that chase you? You could have a PacMan/Monkeyball game here.
It feels like a faster-paced version of Wonderland. I really had fun with the handling of the character. It'd be a blast if there were occasional bumpers acting as walls, so Pob could bounce off them.
It does need prettier graphics, though. Some of the level textures you have so far look like they'd be right at home in Quake or any other gritty action game.
