Rated 5 / 5 stars

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.

Only problem with this game? Climbing up is slower than reckless jumping.

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

A puzzle platformer that is pure, elegant, simple, minimalistic and to the point. At first, I was walking around and was thinking what could you be offering in this game. But after I got the first ability, I somehow got hooked and have a strange urge that I wanna clear the game. The "what to do" and "where to go" aren't so hard, and that is where the game shines.

I have no complain with the controls. The whole ride is well done. It was good from the beginning to the end.

Great job.
