Only problem with this game? Climbing up is slower than reckless jumping.

A puzzle platformer that is pure, elegant, simple, minimalistic and to the point. At first, I was walking around and was thinking what could you be offering in this game. But after I got the first ability, I somehow got hooked and have a strange urge that I wanna clear the game. The "what to do" and "where to go" aren't so hard, and that is where the game shines.

I have no complain with the controls. The whole ride is well done. It was good from the beginning to the end.

Great job.
