While the visuals are a little simplistic, the puzzle design in this game is solid and fun! Can be a bit tricky to suppress your instincts to not waste moves at first, which can lead to some frustration: lord knows I messed up a lot of runs by accidentally jumping too much (damn you Mario!) and it did suck sometimes to lose a run by mistiming a jump in general, but the cool concept was worth the sacrifice, I think. Felt great to be able to plan out the perfect route by calculating all of the moves on screen, and some of the levels even early on were some great brain-teasers with stuff like the box stacking and such where the ideal route might not be as readily apparent as it seems.

you should make a walkthrough

Innovative, but, as with most puzzle platformers, as the game becomes more and more complex, and you are more liable to mess up your entire game with a single mistake; it is prone to causing frustration when you do everything correctly and then completely miss the exit, not because you failed the puzzle, but because you jumped a second too early, or too late, and must do it all over again.

fun but difficult.

fun game. Very tricky in a couple spots but feels good once you finally figure it out :D (music is nice)
