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.

Any hints on the very last medal?

Thank you for creating this creative metroidvania exploration game! I love the sounds, the aminules and all the detail and treasures that are contained in this game. I spent lots of time having fun exploring and zzzzzz sailing along. Wonderful fun! The gnome cannon/ship was a hoot! To offer a bit of constructive criticism, it is hard to read some of the text when the background is the same color as the text. I am not sure how to finish this game. I may have missed something, IDK. Also, I think there may be a glitch with the medals. They do not all show up in my list. But overall, this is a refreshing creative game. I appreciate all the effort and attention to detail put into this one. Well done!

Very interesting graphics, great mechanics.

For some reason the medals don't work for me even if I save my game after getting them. Also the game's a little difficult but once you get the hang of it, it's a really nice game.

Nostalgia heaven!
