A bit hard, but over-all fun.
8/despacito, add some music and 9 stars.

wOW! Esta muy bueno! Me encanto el nivel negro de los cuadrados :) Muy buen juego.

My my my, first off some tips for newer players: To climb walls faster jump [Hit S or Z] while going upwards with your arrow key, this becomes much easier when you receive the first ability. Don't give up on the game the level of difficulty increases but there is no selected order for you to complete the puzzles so have fun.

About the game; Music and Atmosphere: 10/10 the birds chirping add a zest reminds you that you're still alive.

Background; Amazingly serene.

Controls: Fluid; point to consider a triple jump might dampen the spike in difficulty but I loved the challenge.

Final Thoughts: This had a real Cave Story feel the nostalgia hit me like a truck this was an amazing game and I'd love to see more from you.

I had played this game a long time ago, but now with this account I can express what I feel...

This little game is truly a work of art!

The gameplay is perfect and satisfying, the music and sound effects are beautiful, the enviroment is wonderful, the main character is adorable (I felt bad every time she died because of me), the theme of the game is simple but very entertaining.

To not extend this review any longer: This game is just perfect.

Ryan Carag and Bill Kiley, you two are a pair of geniuses.
You made one of the best games I've had the honor of playing.

Sorry for the bad English.
