Start Powerless is a platformer where you can’t do anything except move left/right until you pick up the powerups in each level.

This is the post-jam version of my Ludum Dare 45 entry here: https://ldjam.com/events/ludum-dare/45/start-powerless

Full Walkthrough: https://twitter.com/Rob1221dev/status/1191002205513506816

Move right: Right Arrow / D
