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.

Interesting and enjoyable game, love hidden treasure mechanics and unlockable skills

This game was so much fun, and it was very well made. I absolutely love platformers like this, especially in this style. If I had to give a critique, it would be the inclusion of a duck mechanic. I don't really have an issue with it being there, but I never had to use it. It looked cool, though. I also had a little bit of an issue with some of the story text cutting off, as well as the description for one of the treasures. Another one of the treasures also didn't have a description when I picked it up like the others did. The game was great and rather polished otherwise, so it could just be that something went wrong when Flash died and it was moved to the Newgrounds Player. I don't know if that's how that works. I'm technologically inept. Probably could be my computer too.

Anyway, loved the game! If you couldn't tell from my rating, haha. Great music and sound design. I'm probably going to come back and play it again sometime, and I'd love to play a sequel. I'm not sure if there already is one, but if there isn't, the game is so old it's unlikely to happen at this point.

great game but medals could have been ez given like credit medal

Any hints on the very last medal?
