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

Rated 5 / 5 stars

I definitely cherished the game. My controls were not choppy, and I suffered no lag. A commendable game! Getting all the treasure was not as accessible as it was pleasurable! A grotesque stage dilapidation-er. Well done.

a got most of the medals and everything went smoothly. Had no problems with the controls and it loaded quickly.

I think I've found a glitch. When you glide on the water slopes, instead of your character falling downwards, they'll "fall" upwards before gliding upwards for a couple of seconds.

Regardless, this is a great game. Love the Zelda reference.

Awesome, awesome game :) I absolutely loved it! Sure, it lags, but it is so worth it! I played the entire game through & found it to be so much fun. I love the story line and the little mini games of collecting coins. Just a perfect game in my opinion :D Great job!
