Leaving the sound on is highly recommended.

UP or X: jump, jetpack
DOWN: activate
M: mute

First off: nuoh mah gawd, dat atmosphere. The art style is simple and sweet, and combined with the absolutely gorgeous sound effects and ambient noise (which are strangely reminiscent of those relaxing "sounds of nature" dealies, which is weird 'cause I've always hated those) creates an invitingly bittersweet world I want to explore for-goddam-ever. That said, the sudden transition from slow, take-your-time-and-enjoy-the-scenery exploration to so-many-spikes-you-don't-even-know platforming is jarring and, in my opinion, unfortunate, as it clashes with the otherwise pleasantly relaxing aesthetic of the game. I almost feel like this would've been better as a straight-up art game, with a stronger focus on exploring post-human Earth in all its pixelated, moss-eaten, ivy-covered glory. I guess what I'm saying is, you've got a great style artistically, and now you just need to master the gameplay half of it. Keep it up, mang, I'm excited to see what you roll out next.

The soundscape was definitely very relaxing, in contrast to the difficulty in getting around the spikes, which kind of defeated the purpose of it for me. Meandering in the parts before the jetpack were very mystical, but after that I started losing focus on the ambience and was mottled with frustration, which I guess does give this game challenge. The end was kinda anticlimactic, but at least balanced with how it began. Overall, I thought it was pretty cool. Lovely use of sound effects in a soothing blueish world.

One thing i don`t understand though...
Why did humans leave so many spikes behind?

Enough fucking spikes yet?Yo Dawg, I heard you like spikes!I put some spikes on your spikes so you can spike your spikes!

Nice, but too hard. It gets boring after having to do the same thing over and over an over.... again.
The jet pack is pretty annoing, you don't know when the fuel ends and there are simply too many of those spikes. But the atmosphere is great.
