excellent metroidvaniash

Really fun and pretty simple with some annoyingly easy to find secrets you won't spot unless you run against all the walls
Though, I do think there could have been a proper idea of what to do, because as soon as I got those red keys, I ran everywhere trying to find anywhere I haven't looked.
Finally just back tracked and finally found the last key, which was to lead to the exit.
Pretty enjoyable.
A lotta deaths
A lotta time

Thanks for playing the game :) glad you've enjoyed it :)

First of all this game is mislabeled as Metroidvania. It' isn't because the character get's new abilities during the game.

I don't really like the "jumping trough the hoops" gameplay of this, so tired of games like this, I prefer something with more freedom in how to get past obstacles. Also no enemies and no fighting here, just obstacles and hoops.

Other then that the game is well made, if you like that kind of gameplay then it's a decent piece.

In the end the game told me I got 2 coins out of 3. Funny, I never noticed any coins there.

I really enjoyed the game, controls were on point, no stupid sliding, accelleration or inaccurate jumping. When I saw the first coin I started hunting for them, then quit when the obvious way didn't work and then started again when I accidently got the first one. After finding the second last key, I was positive the door needed four and got a little bit lost. But in the end it was great fun, and little bit of a challenge.
P.S.: What about the hidden area that seems to have nothing in it?

Some of them are shortcuts for speed running :)

Wow, this is super fun! I've considered messing around on TIC-80, and I think that this might be the tipping point for me. I love the floaty gameplay, using the [down] button to control your descent. Timed laser gameplay is always really meditative for me, so I really enjoyed playing the laser-rooms. Great job! :D
