About This Game

Who hasn't dreamt, at some point, of filling a pool full of jello and swimming in it? In some of us, that dream never died. Some of us kept dreaming: what if the whole street was jello? Or the continent? The world!? The Floor is Jelly posits a universe made of jello, made purely for one's own amusement. No longer need we look to our walls and our floors and sigh, "How solid! How sadly immalleable! How I wish for a world consisting only of Non-Newtonian fluids!" That world has arrived, via the dark magic of videogames, as The Floor is Jelly.

Soundtrack by Disasterpeace available here.

Beautiful platformer with very nice graphics. A lot of different mechanics - you won't get bored with jumping. The game is pretty short but diverse. Calm music fits the gameplay.

The game is written in FLASH, so it will lag A LOT, especially when you get these flying white things. It will also lag when there are too many curves. Yes, the calculations take a lot of CPU, but why should I care? The game runs SLOW and it is unacceptable for a platformer. One slider for music volume and game volume (the music in the water level was meh and there was no way to turn it off without silencing jumping sounds too), non-customizable controls. No map at all - exploration may be fun, but not when you are trying to remember all these windows. Achievments should be always related to the game itself (I am talking about "U KNO WUT I LUV" which requires visiting site about another game. If you want to add puzzle reference in your game - don't make it an achievment).

The Floor is Jelly is a good game, but not good enough to make me replay it. Still, I like it.

Although this game is overpriced for a game that is only 2.5 hours long, it really does become quite beautiful as you sink deeper into it. The first few levels suffer from flash lag issues but those dissapear once you get a little deeper. I recommend getting this game on sale for any fan of platformers, but since this game never seems to go on sale, it may end up sitting in your wishlist for a very long time.

Edit: holy crap, the game becomes insane in the third half. I won't say exactly what happens but it is definetely the best part of the game.

Spent only a little time in the game and I'm already falling in love with it.

Pros:
- Stunning 2D physics (It makes me want to play with it as it was a jelly simulator.)
- Level of difficulty is progressive.
- Minimalistic yet beautiful art style.
- Calm sounds and music, not distracting the gameplay
- Good level design, new mechanics are introduced when the "theme" changes, so you are not just jumping all the time.
- Have I mentioned how awesome the game physics are?

Cons:
- No "level selection" option. If I am stuck on a level, I have to go back all the way through a level where leads to multiple levels, so I can "select" another level.

This platformer is a beautiful piece of art with engaging puzzles and an amazing soundtrack. I got this on a whim when I saw a YouTuber play it, and now it is definitely one of my favortie platformers.

However, the last level is beyond trippy and should come with a seizure warning. Though it is very artistic in its own way the music and "corruptions" gave me a headache.

I enjoyed the main game,at the start it was fun and hard at the same time. The game at the end just blew me away. I loved it so much and the music was also amazing.
