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
UP to save in front of a SavePointMan
X to fight (when the time comes)

Rated 3 / 5 stars

Although I enjoyed the graphics and SFX, I can't say much about the gameplay... I have to say I was discouraged to play after first few minutes because of the controls. IMO there's too big acceleration and moving gets annoying very fast. It's very hard to hit the thin platforms while jumping (I'm an experienced player and still have problems). Definitely a subject to change. Oh, and texts are barely visible too.

I greatly enjoyed the game! There were a few glitches but it was great!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Okay, I think when you jump and hit something with the top of your head you should keep the momentum forward instead of just falling down immediately, it creates this clunky feeling of stopping in mid air for no reason, especially annoying during the tree with barely visible platforms.

I finished the game, have all achievements except the first secret medal and Legendary treasure hunter, is that secret medal a treasure or is that a bug?

Pretty nice game, but found a couple of glitches:

- Sometimes when jump-gliding at the superfices makes you "go through" the floor/dirt, making yourself go stuck, only way to fix is is to go all the way down and go through a hole.

- You can actually levitate if you glide at the waterfall slopes, carefully glide at one and you start sliding upwards, making it repeat the glide animation and start going up, as soon you don't touch anything you'll keep going up, not really helpful, but it's pretty cool to see.

Overall, it got me entertained for 40 minutes or so, but damn, i can't find the really hidden chest, any hints for it?
