Wow, over 160,000 views! Thanks so much, Newgrounds!

I added five site medals to say thanks. And one of them is really, really hard. =)

FAQ:
1) the game does have an ending, but it's a bit of a puzzle to solve. hint: unlock all medals and 'fear less'. =)
2) the visual disorientation some people are getting is an optical illusion called the 'waterfall effect'. it's harmless, and should stop if you take a short break. wikipedia.org/wiki/Motion_aftereffect
3) all randomness is structured into groups with delays, so the game is fair when you get at least double jump.
4) the fire/skull area is beatable without taking damage. it might scare you the first time, though. =)
5) I switched over to the newgrounds API after mochi died. Sorry to everyone who had problems playing on april 1st. It wasn't an april fools joke, promise!
6) atpalicis and I are working on a much larger project right now, so stay tuned!

This game is amazing. Music is perfect, pixelated graphics and effects are flawless, and characters are cute - all of them, flaming skulls included.

I would call this a true masterpiece, although a short one, but there is still room for improvement (I know it is almost 4 years old, but nonetheless...):

Receeding after damage to have more time to react against next obstacles is a nice touch, but sometimes it backfires - making the girl get damaged a second time by obstacles that are too close. This could infuriate a few players after happening a few times, especially if they are going for the hardest medal. Increasing the current invincibity window by 1 second - allowing her to jump during this last second - would be enough.

That obviously isn't enough to even consider pulling any stars from my review. Well done.

The Chowder reference, "Trouble with Truffles" medal, is almost unnoticeable. I wonder if anyone else besides me saw it, also lovely job with the game! The concept is grand and all but I was hoping for there to be more to it. Or maybe some Easter eggs to be found like clicking on a stuffed animal in her room or something. It's still terrific without it, and I hope you have fun working on your next project!
