So you get a star because the game didn't lag, and it had a decent loading time. I think that leads into my next point.
You get a star because the controls were simple and fluid. But then comes the hard part, judging creativity.
At first I wasn't actually impressed, but that's more on me than anything. I've spoiled myself with to many group funded games and haven't played the simpler flash in a while. I was hoping for another Pico's school here on Newgrounds, something shocking I mean, and I get this simple yet slightly heart felt game.
I think you used all you could at your disposal for the concept, and while the ending has been done before in other ways yours has a unique feel to it.
