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
UP to save in front of a SavePointMan
X to fight (when the time comes)
P to pause

Jumping sucks here. My fingers sucks. Man, make it easier.

great concept, polish up those platforms a bit. They tend to be difficult to land on and I keep slipping off.

A lovely experience to play except one spot where you had to collect coins in a tree...

It bought back some bad memories when some so called "friends" trapped me up in a tree and shook it.

I ended up falling...

Very fun game

A fun entry, it had lots too offer and lots to entertain me and many others with i suppose, These types of entries are really fun and like i said bring a certain something to the table, Very good stuff here. OK great game i love the whole "SPRITE" feel of it all, but it was a good and fun game, the graphics are nice the "CONTROLLS" are easy to adapt to and respond well, the concept of the game is basic yet still fun and entertaining, so i really enjoyed the game especially for all the different medals and thats what really made it fun for me, There was no realy issies with the game, it was overall a fun game. Like i said this was an interesting submission, i wouldnt mind seeing some more, with more nifty stuff going on, You do have some entertaining value to it all, but would like to see more stuff goingon, but it is pretty good.

So sometimes i may or may not have some improvment ideas, with this one not so sure, but i will do my best to bring up some ideas here maybe some suggestions but if you dont see anything then that means you had it down just right. No real improvments are needed overall it was a fun and pleasent game.

Had an issue in the gnome caverns - while picking up the gift for the lady item (or along those line) I fell right through the ground - so heads up and watch out for everyone - its past the 2x Gold coin door going to the right.
