Fun arcade action! I like the simple gameplay and like that the game allows you to take risky, dynamic moves like flinging yourself from ladder to ladder: if you had to wait for each ladder to go across I think the game would be way too slow. The game sometimes does feel a little RNG-dependent where you can get screwed on apples, or something they all spawn on the edges leading to an easy victory. Guess that's the break of having it be random instead of a structured puzzler. I had a good time with the game though: I thought it was gonna end at 16 apples but it just kept going, haha!

The concept for this seems fun but I found it's too dependent on RNG. I found multiple times I was being left with no way to go across and get enough apples within the time as ladders just wouldn't appear. It ultimately boiled down to me waiting for a run where the RNG gave me a good enough means to get the amount of apples needed. I also found it strange that it doesn't reset after dying, the ladders just keep going by. Sure there is no penalty to death so I never felt robbed but I just found that the waiting on RNG wasn't fun.

Simple, straight forward, and not too overwhelming. I like this game.

This is cool. It really seems like it could be an arcade game from the 80s imo, and the music is top notch.

reminds me of mr game and watch
