A bit rough around the edges, but I really like the idea behind the main mechanic. Would love to see that fleshed out a bit with added depth. The story didn't make a whole lot of sense to me, but that's fine. I've always leaned towards mechanical gameplay.
A downloadable game for Windows and macOS
Due to some misterious earthquakes, Kloe's town is in risk of being separated from the residual cumulus orbiting around a Dyson Sphere.
We need you to help Kloe save her town, using her special weight-altering abilities to overcome various obstacles. Can you handle it?
Dyson Sphere is a 2D Platformer game, emphasizing on various physics-related mechanics and challenges. Its aesthetics resemble the kinds of Gameboy's games.

Code-E, thank you very much for your feedback! We're still learning, so your insight is very helpful. We hope to use this knowledge to create better games further on. The video is very nice too; it helps find the weaknesses that need to be addressed.
Boy, if Callum’s review was honest, you’re going to shoot your brains out when it comes to mine.
So your Twitter says you’re students at a university? Don’t look back on the past work you did and feel bad for it. Certainly, don’t cringe when you eventually see better work, as my oldest website is a sacrilege to the brilliance of the ones I would create. One has to be an amateur before they can become someone worth writing about. Well, you’re halfway there.
Spain, too, is a good country. Feel proud of living there. But anyway, here’s the review: Kratzen gives it two stars. Two stars! Out of billions!
Oh, honest is always good! We need honesty. Yes, we're University Students, at ENTI (in Barcelona) specifically. Thank you for giving us courage, and we couldn't agree more. Practice makes the master. Thank you for forwarding Kratzen's video! It's very useful. Also we couldn't avoid laughing over our own mistakes. We need to improve. And we will. We're happy that we got a star at all! Thanks again for everything!
It looks cute.
A solid puzzle platformer with a few rough edges.
The idea of changing your weight to solve puzzles is a novel one, and I easily lapped up the first eight levels, but after that it just... stopped. I'd found all eight doors, defeated all of their fiendish brain teasers, but to no avail.
None of the hooded figures seemed to care, I couldn't see a way out and just closed the game. It's a shame really, shouldn't I get a credits roll or something? Very odd.
Finally, consider researching your titles in future. Where I'm from, Dyson is a rather famous brand of vacuum cleaner--
[Tries to Find a Link as Evidence]
"A Dyson sphere is a hypothetical megastructure that completely encompasses a star and captures most or all of its power output". You learn something new every day.
Yes, we are aware about the vacuum thing... We laugh abaut it internally too hahaha
The final levels accessible from the center fountain once you beat the 8 levels.
Thank you for your honest review :')
Syg you happy reaper you!
It is a nice platform! I really like the drawing style :)
Great art aesthetic!
