I like the blueprint-style drawings and notes scribbled in.
I like games that do a tutorial as notes written on the level (braid and realm of the mad god both do this too). On problem: I started on level 7 and couldn't figure out how to use the door to get to level 1. Maybe put the "S or <down arrow>" note next to that door? Or just start the player on level 1.
Instead of killing bugs I just trapped them by building platforms around them. I feel like I should get some points for that :)
The decorative elements didn't seem to serve much purpose except for points. Any way you could work them into the gameplay? (I have to admit that I can't think of a way to do this).

Tried it out. Movement seemed a bit slippy/slidey. I never spawned any bugs, and - and this was probably my biggest issue - I never really wanted to decorate. So I sort of hopped up the floors until I got to the top.
I didn't know how to kill bugs.
It's pretty good for a first game - congrats : )

I spawned a number of bugs by drawing a lot of platforms. They didn't seem so threatening. At one point, I nudged one off a ledge and chuckled as it bounced up a progression of jump pads I'd drawn until it hit the ceiling. I think the bugs would be a stronger threat if they interfered with your ability to build.
I didn't find the decorating nearly so interesting as the vertical level progression--I'd like to see what you have in mind to make that mechanic more important to the gameplay or the setting.

Wish the character had more friction, found it a bit too slippery as well.
Great game though! Really fun idea. I'd build on top of it and keep trying out new stuff / level designs / puzzles.
