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.

very colorful and artistic. i really enjoyed it, but the controls could have been smother. other than that small flaw, very good.

I played this when it was still in under judgement, but the medals weren't working yet, which I was fine with since this game was fun enough that I thought I would like it just as much the second time around. nope. The game is filled with bugs now compared to before. The biggest problem is the hitboxes showing up after going to the airship.

For the people that don't like it either, here's some help: Keep playing until you get to punch stuff, save it, and then refresh. I say that because you HAVE to go through the airship to get to the high spot to continue with the game. When you refresh/come to the page, and start playing, you always start at the title area and not where you last saved it.

Minus one star for becoming infested.
