Oh look a platformer. I'm sure you can beat all the rooms. That's cool. Can you beat the game though?

Because those are two very different things in this game.

This is a bit of an experiment and I'm hoping people will enjoy it. It's more of a short story than a game really. But there is a way to beat it, there is an ending. Please let me know if you find it, I'd love to hear it :)

Anyway yeah, good luck!

Oh also, controls I neglected to mention:

Arrow Keys to move + jump
P to pause
0 for mute


Love the idea of this.
Though, playing after reading the description, I found the exit right away.
Nonetheless, very nice!

I don't see how I was supposed to figure out that on only one of the levels provided the exit. I had to actually look at the reviews for the solution! I would suggest adding more accurate hints because "thinking outside the box" makes you think the answer is literally outside the screen when it actually isn't, I was furiously clicking the A and B and movement buttons on the gameboy.

People find this review helpful!

A clever little "experiment", as you put it, but not anything to give really high praise. I liked how you had to literally escape the game in order to win. Hopefully, this is just a small project that will lead into a much larger and more refined game with the same simplicity in controls and the same perplexing gameplay features, especially the fourth wall breaching.

Pretty simple, but good fun. Could have benefited from tighter controls and some extra levels.

hm very hard
