Really nice graphics and sound, as well as a great premise and gameplay that gets right to it. The cloud mechanic is a bit frustrating however; I understand the appeal of having one-button manage multiple mechanics but I found it very frustrating to get the cloud to work in your favor. I think the intention was very good though, and I could see it working if you take the time to get used to it (but it's a frustrating journey until then).

The pixel art is well done. The controls can get stuck making it a bit frustrating, but overall it's a good game. Definitely reminiscent of old school Mario and the like.

The idea and setting are good. The controls are fine. The sound choice is also well. The music is good, but the sound choice is a bit off. Although the cloud creation is controlled by the player, the positioning of said clouds is ridiculous.Safe B+

The retro style is adorable and the pixel art is well done. I would love controller support for this game. The controls were a bit awkward at first. (For anyone else having issues with the controls. I think the easiest way is to have your right hand on arrow keys and your left hand over Z and X keys.)

This controls badly. The jumping and cloud creation is awful. This is almost unplayable.
