It is an action puzzle game with the concept of "recording and replaying movements."
Playtime: 5-10 minutes.
Press ↑+ ◯ (Z) to start motion recording. Moving during the recording will store the coordinates.
Press ◯ (Z) to play back the recorded motion.
Press ↓+ ◯ (Z) to play back the motion in reverse.
The recorded motion can be used infinitely
Clear the stage using playback and reverse playback.

I used @matthughson's Advanced Micro Platformer - Starter Kit as a template for the PICO-8 platformer. Thank you!
I'm thinking of creating a console version of this game.
I would appreciate it if you could share your thoughts or leave a comment.
That was really clever and fun. It took me a while to get used to the controls, but I can't see how it could have been any better with the number of buttons. puzzles were great and graphics were really nice (doing colours changes for different modes was very effective).
Checked the game out for about an hour and managed to beat it in under a minute! (after getting exactly 1:00 twice before that lol)
EDIT: Oops looks like I missed some strats looking at the other posts from here, so you could definitely cut down on a few more seconds
Got a 1:10 on mobile. Currently relearning the controls on computer so I can record a gif, but props to you lot for figuring out that route.
Speedrunning aside, this is such a good game. I will say, most of the game feels like a tutorial with not much room for error - that's why people are asking for more levels - but the mechanics are so unique and well executed. The are is also incredible, the black and white style is done so well. Can't wait to see what you do next :)
I found a room by getting out of bounds and falling to my doom.
