the handling is pretty bad.

like if you're on top of a crate, you can jump. you can run. you can't jump while running. though it plays the sound effect as if you did.

work on this and then send me a private message or reply to this review letting me know you've fixed it.

Good game, but pretty harsh difficulty spike from level 6-7 onwards, until you reach levels where precision platforming is needed in a movement system that just misses the mark.

The graphics and music are good though, but combined with the story, they make it seem a game for a younger audience, which the challenge is a little too high for.

Awesome. Really good audio, unique idea good comtrolls and the game runs smooth. Good job!
