Made for YoSniper's 2014 game contest. There were a few rules necessitating silly things like the inclusion of a pie, but the most significant thing about them was that I couldn't use jump refreshers. The core conceit of game was repeating the basic layout of each screen multiple times and changing the player's path through them with each iteration. No one seemed to notice that in particular and it probably ended up being too long for most people's tastes, but I'm still pretty proud of it in general, and of the unlockable extra area in particular.

Name explanation: An omnitruncated tesseract (also known as a great disprismatotesseractihexadecachoron) is a runcination of a regular tesseract, which is a shape one dimension above a cube (similarly to how a cube is one dimension above a square.) People took this to mean the the teleporter gimmick was the titular object, but that was unintentional. I had just been thinking a lot about them at the time.

Not much to say other than I enjoyed all the gimmicks and needle. The Hearthstone theme is a little goofy though :)

Has some flaws, still would recommend. Sadly no jump refreshers.

My biggest issue with this game by far is that it gets stale quite quickly, the general idea is somewhat neat but a lot of the screens feel the same and blend together. Nothing was unpleasant but nothing really sticks out after playing and a lot of the platforming was very basic.

This game is pretty old so I will give it some slack.

I originally discovered this game from looking at I Wanna Get Cultured 2's lineup of fangames and the tile-set looked interesting. I gave the game a shot and it is mostly hit or miss with its design choices. The gameplay can get somewhat frustrating with balancing, which is going to be in most old fan games anyways.
The final extra section requires secrets items in every stage and uses jump refreshers, the one gimmick the game avoids using for gameplay. I now understand why the Cultured 2 team changed the tile-set to make it more easier to see because it is really bright yellow, ouch.
I am not too sure if there was a deeper meaning behind some of the stage choices, but they are random to say the least. You initially start in this temple area then go to a factory place that has a dark, haunted forest aesthetic and to an underground area (going off by memory here). I do not know how these connect to each other, but they do anyways.
Also the music is still bugged and loops are broken. Even with that settled, the music choice was okay, nothing too noteworthy.

Fairly okay game if you want something that is old.
