Man, I absolutely love the game, it's amazing and everything, looking forward the continuation . . . 


Cute, minimalistic, and awesome! I had a lot of fun playing; looking forward to more :D

Clever! I like how the jump is up on a high platform, it fits a theme.

Gripes: I've had a heck of a time trying to use the grapple, it seems like I can never estimate correctly how far down I'll end up at the end of the swing, as if it gets longer. The orange area has too few checkpoints for me to put up with the frustration for now, I'd like one after making it to the end of the first left-to-right section. (But it may just be too hard for my slow reflexes.)


hey so I've been looking through the game's files and I can't find where you can open the application. where is it

Have you downloaded the right version for your computer? it could be you got the apple version by mistake

Like that game. However, there is an annoying bug. The character is in the next "screen" but the window does not shift over to it... and you can not move. Sometimes you can get out of it by moving left/right. But sometimes you get stuck... and have to restart the game. Also it would be nice to be able to autosave to the game at the safepoints. That would semi-resolve this issue...

Thanks for playing! I've uploaded a version that fixes the camera issues, and I'll see what I can do about saving.

Nice! That was quick! You added the UP key for jumping. That's much more comfortable now! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
Another cool feature would be a death counter. ๐Ÿ’€: 42 <-- ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Also, there seems to be another bug that occurred only once to me: A platform pushed me downwards outside the level. Was the first platform, just after I got the "right" key upgrade. Made a screenshot, but could not reproduce this again... even trying really hard. ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ

The camera bug did not occur again even 3 times played through in a row. That seems really fixed now. ๐Ÿ‘


Very good game really liked it. The only problem for me was the flag placement  (it is a bit awkward) and that bug when the character goes out of the screen. Anyways, it was fun. 


looks great, but you should fix camera transitions, and I recommend add pixel perfect to your game.


Good game. 


Nice concept, simple good art style. Two problems however.
First, there's no way to quit to main menu. Second, getting the up arrow does nothing, and blocks progress.


Thanks for playing! I didn't add a quit button because there's no saving, but I'll add it in the next patch. Also the up arrow is jump, so you use space. I'll probably make it so w or up arrow works as well.
