Thank you! Still a long way to go, but I think the prototype / concept is solid.

Like TheDarkGrimore mentioned there isn't any character. It's just the map and after a while it says "Game Over". I guess this should be fixed...

Thanks for the feedback, I've had a few people playing this now without problems on google chrome, however using any other browser it doesn't seem to load properly. Not 100% what the problem actually is as of yet, still learning Gamemaker:Studio.

The character does not appear. I restart but he still doesn't appear no matter what. Check on that.

Thanks for the feedback, this seems to be browser related, in that people using anything other than chrome seem to have issues. not sure why but seems to be a gamemaker:Studio issue, i have raised it with yoyo games.

Too many problems. Hitboxes are over sized for enemies, Jump is like 1.9 units meaning you can't jump 2 steps at once and have to wait .9 of a step falling before you can jump again, its unclear if the wood displayed is being used or yet to be used, you teleport when using the rope, fall speed is slow, enemies should not come near the start point. The list goes on and on.

Thanks for the feedback, as stated in the comments the game is very much still a prototype.
