Really nice game. 

Game Mechanics: I enjoyed the card system mechanics, and the random enemies.
Music fits perfects with the game. My only recommendation is that there should be a game over or win scene, and mentioned a restart scene. Overall a awesome game!

Thanks for playing our game!
We wanted to try something unique for mechanics instead of another platformer type ;-). Glad you liked the end result!
We already have several ideas (cut from jam version due to time) for a post jam update.
A nicer game over/win scene is definitely a needed addition. Thanks!
