EDIT: Ver 1.5 is up. I've tweaked the running and braking a little. Movement should be more fluid now. I've also enlarged the offscreen window, so NPC popup should be nonexistant now. Enjoy and keep up with the feedback!

Sorry for the outline thing. It won't appear again.

LEFT and RIGHT ARROW to move
Z to jump, double jump and glide
DOWN to duck and stop gliding

Thanks to the Stencyl team and Newgrounds for making all of this possible.
i hope you enjoy your time with it!



Rated 4 / 5 stars

A lovely experience to play except one spot where you had to collect coins in a tree...

It bought back some bad memories when some so called "friends" trapped me up in a tree and shook it.

I ended up falling...


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

The only thing I can say is that the medals did not update as I played, so I'm not sure if I got all of the medals. Other than that, an interesting game. (Also, maybe a bit more story.)


Rated 4 / 5 stars

great concept, polish up those platforms a bit. They tend to be difficult to land on and I keep slipping off.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

I must have lucked out and played a later version, because the controls seem fine to me. The jumping isn't particularly difficult, except in waterfalls, so it didn't bother me. The graphics are simple but tell the story well. The gameplay is fun, sort of relaxing in the vein of William and Sly or Endeavor. The races were fun, but other than that it was a bit too leisurely. If you were going to include enemies, I would have liked to see a Gnome Boss or two thrown in there. Otherwise, very well-done game!
