I LOVE this game. But there's a slight problem early game. Crystal Ward is too annoying and it makes it hard to obtain certain types of enemies early game. Crystal Ward seems too make enemies completly invulnerable, it would be better if it only protected a certain amount so it doesn't completly undo my penetrate, making it nearly impossible to gain more followers, especially hive drones which early game are only available from an enemy with Crystal Ward.
So close... I was going to give this a 4 after about 10 deaths. I thought it was clever at first, but sadly it only comes off as smug. "This game is too hard for you" is the message. Sadly, but the proper definition, this game is not "hard". Its broken. Perhaps that was your message? But the fact you have to be several steps off the platform to make the proper jump just makes it more infuriating then anything. Even games like "I wanna be the guy" knew how to make a game infuratingly hard in the proper way.
While I did laugh at the voice at first, as I kept dying from the same jump over and over, it got more and more annoying. I just wasn't having fun. I don't like having to walk several feet off the platform in order to make a jump. There are other ways to make a game harder and have the player die several times then these methods. (I couldn't get passed level 4. I made it to the last platform once and then gave up). Also, I think you should have a death counter.
Game gives you very little insintive to attempt to finish. After getting to 2,000, and then abruptly stopping, I feel like getting to the end is hopeless. Goal too far, and not that interested to reach it to be honest. Nor is there any challenge beyond clicking fast, with no other obstacle.
