Love this

stuck on the floor is lava level, anyone have tips?

On the level prior there's a note you mighta missed. Hold left click holds you on the position allowing you to fly.

Thanks, knowing that makes it a lot easier, amazing game btw

I found a glitch and I don't know how I did it's your classic go in to object but this one was even weirder because I went up I guess it's because I was under a ledge and it didn't even break

hell yea you did, congrats!


-One of the best games on itch!
-Great mechanics.

I would pay for it (on steam).

Keep developing!

18/10 猸愶笍 

the fact that the game has a copy / ripp of says that it has to be good 

(Sry for my en)

dude i know mr slice on cool math was a clone of your game and i really enjoyed that game or your game i guess but i understand that the game is free so if it is possible could you upload it to a website where i could play it on a browser or if it already is can i get a link thank you      p.s. i plan to donate here in the future if i can finally actually play the game

Hey, sorry but I have no intentions of making a web version, at least not in the near future. I can promise you the download is safe, or if you're concerned, try the itch.io app, which is safer + easier to install. 



HOOOLE-y heck, thanks for playing mate, and for the video! Love the thumbnail!

Really great game! I loved it!

I have never seen anything like that! Unique idea and amazing execution!

Sorry but why the hell are you posting this here? "Mr Slice" is a clone, why would you then post about it on the page of the original game?? 

Like to be clear, Mr Slice outright stole from me. 

Why are you posting this here? Delete the damn comment and play the original game instead of the trashy clone. 


Mr.slice is the real game.

Not sure what you're getting at mate, but Mr Slice is a clone, meaning it took my mechanics, art and levels and uploaded it to coolmath taking the profit. This game (Hole Punch) is the original one, developed by me, then stolen by cool math games. So no, mr slice is not the original, and honestly it's a pretty terrible clone anyways. 


Well, i never saw a clone which is better made than the original game...

That must be a miracle of sorts, isn't it?

I believe you are misunderstanding... hole punch is not the same as mr slice, and hole punch is free, you鈥檝e just gotta download it (you can skip the donation thing). These are not the same games, it鈥檚 more like mr slice has been copying from my test paper. 

I don鈥檛 mean to bicker with you, and I鈥檓 sorry if this comes off as petty. I invite you to try hole punch and come to your own conclusion.


hey i found a copy of this game on cool math games



hahahaha that's such a terrible clone! Omfg they even straight copied levels! Thanks for letting me know


Loved the gameplay, art, music, everything! Good job!

Thanks Moises, I鈥檓 very glad you liked it! It鈥檒l be coming to steam later, consider wishlisting it!

ugh i cant download 32 bit version with  itch io desktop pc.

I could swear this used to be a browser game. is that true?

Nope, it's unfortunately not available on browser because some of the graphical stuff doesn't work there.

huh. maybe i did install it, but im like 90% sure i didnt


i absolutely love this game! im so happy ur making it a real game and putting it on steam! i just keep coming back to play! way to go!


I liked the game really much, it's really fun, game design is really good, art, it's like a perfectly baked pizza in an italian restaurant! Everything is perfect, even the little detail in the pause menu, when hovering over buttons, there's a cut line, so when the button is clicked, the button gets sliced, man I love that! Really cool game, I would play it again. :)

Keep It up!


really liked your game!! art style, level design and puzzles were amazing. Got stuck on the most difficult sniper level. I streamed my first impressions at

(1 edit) (+1)

Ah shoot ya missed some tutorial text on the previous level! You could hold click to hover in place, which helps with weaving through the snipers. Thanks for playing and streaming it!


Ayyyy nice run! I鈥檓 really glad you enjoyed and ran the game!


The game was really fun such a cool mechanic the music was really nice and worked well with the game. The only issue was some platforms i expected would be able to break wouldn't. I found the secret level with the snipers but couldn't get through luckily you can skip it. A really good game.

No flooor gang, rise up!

I did it again

ayyy nicely done! That鈥檚 seriously really tough to achieve, congrats! 



Absolutely fantastic game!!
Enjoyed a game after a long time
Thank you so much


Great Game Love IT! 
honestly you've taken the concept of platformers and taken  it to a new level. 

How do you download an older version of the game? The level "The floor is lava" is too hard.

(1 edit)

I'm really sorry bout this, I'll fix it in the next update. You can get the previous version of the game here. This stuff can be hard to get right...

EDIT: removed the link since you can now skip levels, plus they're better balanced now!

Thank you! I never expected a reply. I also didn't think that that was a new level of the game when I played it before, so I was confused. 

This game looks awesome and I've been wanting to play it for a long time, but sadly the mac version doesn't work for me. I hope you can find a way to fix it. (And I hope I'm not just doing something stupid while trying to open it and there's nothing to fix)


Hey, the Mac build has worked for some people, can I suggest using the itch app? That should launch the game without issues (if there鈥檚 still problems let me know what error you鈥檙e getting)

what is the reward you get for beating the secret level


im getting really depressed spending 2 days trying to beat it just to get basically nothing

Haha, it truly unlocks nothing at the moment! Further down the line it'll unlock bonus levels, but they're mostly there for people looking for a proper challenge. 

oh lol

I have literally no idea how to beat the "the vault is empty" level.

wait nvm i'm blind

Thank you fine sir! I hope you enjoyed =)


I enjoyed working my way through this game on my livestream. It got cut off on YouTube and Facebook but the whole run is on my IGTV - https://www.instagram.com/tv/CGxaQf4Jqls/ 

Great game and great music!


Dude, this was so fun!!! The only thing i was wanting was better sound effects.

I played your game in my recent youtube video.

Thanks for playing, and for the feedback oriented video! You've given me a few things to improve, particularly regarding tutorialisation of cut depth. One question; was the game anti-aliased for you? It's looking a bit jagged in the vid, but maybe that's just youtube... So thank you again for the feedback, I'll try to address a few of those things in the next update.

Amazing game. Had a lot of fun playing it. Love the inovative ideas and the retro vibes.

Hey, thanks for playing! I haven't been able to test the game in widescreen, so this is very useful! 

Hey! I found this game out through your recommendation on my last vod. and I just wanted to say that this is a frustrating but fun game! I had a lot of fun especially whenever I crushed someone's head on the game. unfortunately, I did not finish the whole game cause I was so pissed lol. anyway, fun fun game! 

p.s game starts at 00:16


huh, I鈥檓 sorry that you got stuck... on the elevator level you just stay on the elevator and that takes you to victory. Sorry that wasn鈥檛 clear. But I鈥檓 glad you enjoyed the first bit!

Hey! Amazing game! I passed it for 7:19.89. When full release?

Full release is probably still a year away. Thanks for playing, and for submitting to speedrun.com, even if it didn't work out. Awesome to hear that you enjoyed running it!

I think sub 6 is doable :) I'll send you video in Discord when i do it

This was so much fun! I'm not very good at it but it is so well done!

Wow, thanks so much for playing! I'm really glad you enjoyed (enough to record it twice!) 

It seems that a lot of people are stumbling into the secret areas and getting stuck, I'll clear that up next update. 


I really love your little game! The controls a tight, the movement is smooth, the music is awesome and the visuals have a unique style that I really dig! 


The mechanics of the game are pretty legendary the game seems to be original, not a ripoff copy of another game. I am more than glad to rate this game 5-stars

Hey there, 

I played your game and it was legendary!. The graphics were smooth and polished. The sound effects were great. the mechanics of the game was kind of original, the colors were awesome. I just loved it. here are some suggestions (u can do whichever one you like or all of them)

Consider making the snipers a little more inaccurate because whenever i tried to get past them they would just kill me in a second.

also make a bit more storyline like chapters for each thing or maybe a plain campaign mode with a bit more things like elevators, then if u like u can make some sort of another mode which you have to do other things as well, make the levels a bit more engaging

also consider putting this in steam as it would gain in popularity because its a very amazing masterpiece. 

(in the elevator part, i got stuck in one part so pls improve that)

(also i coudnt complete the game as i didnt have enough time but i really loved the game and will continue playing it once i get time again)


hope you enjoy the video and dont forget to subscribe in both of my channels to get information/notification of whats getting uploaded in my channel.

have fun :D

Hey, thanks so much for playing! Sorry bout the confusion with the secret area, I鈥檒l make that clearer. The snipers are intentionally instant kill, the sniper line of sight is guaranteed instant death. Sorry you couldn鈥檛 complete it in time, though you were very close to the end! 


I'm so good at this game

You... You鈥檙e too powerful!


This is legit one of my favorite games ever, but I have also a few suggestions on how to improve it.

1: Make more unique levels with unusual mechanics like the elevator thing. If you want to split the game into some sort of chapters, just add one level like that to every one of them, and this will be enough (at least for me). It would be cool to have those levels at the end of the chapter (kinda like bossfights), because they will be surely the most spicy ones, and probably the hardest. Elevator thing was definitely the hardest stage of the game.

2: Fix the elevator level. I have experienced some weird weird bugs when you fall off the platform, instead of just dying you get trapped in a really weird spot. You can easily get out, but it wuld be way mor realistic if you would just get squashed and crushed by the elevator. Also when you find a way to drop a gem out of the screen, the game just triggers the next wave of enemies, and I don't think that's supposed to happen.

3: In a few stages enemies look almost the same dead and alive, and this is kinda confusing. I'm pretty sure this is way more problematic for colorblind people, so maybe you could add some sort of colorblind mode.

4: When you get hit by a pistol or the machine gun the game just freezes for a couple of frames. I'm not sure if this is the intended behaviour, but it  doesn't feel so smooth as the rest of the game, and just looks kinda bad, especially since there is not such effect when you get hit by a sniper.

5: Never give up, and finish this masterpiece even if that would take years of work. It's definitely worth it.


Hey, thanks for the huge comment!
1. More levels are coming and I'm focusing on levels like the elevator one. I completely agree that the elevator level is awesome, and I've got a few interesting things in the works (that are turning out to be harder to make then expected, but they'll be ready eventually!)
2. Kill zones on the elevator is probably a good call, though the gem thing is actually intentional. I think it feels better to just keep the game moving, rather than force a restart when a gem is lost.
3. A colourblind mode is another good idea, it could perhaps use a consistent, high contrast colour scheme.
4. That anim is a bit of a relic from the jam release, though it was intentional to make it clear what hit you (things fly by so quickly, I didn't want it to seem like you died out of nowhere). It could be a lot more snappy tho, I'll work on it. 
5. Finishing this game is my goal, tho 'masterpiece' is a bit of a strong word. 
I've got an update coming in a few days, I'll see if I can address some of these things before then (tho I don't have much time, no promises). Thanks again for your feedback and support!

Added a kill zone in the elevator level and smoothed out the death anim. I also made the enemies weapons disappear when they die, which makes it a lot clearer. Thanks for the suggestions, I might add some more of your ideas later when I have time =)
