Very short and sweet (emphasis on sweet) game. Probably would have been longer if I hadn’t made a beeline to the slow-walking dog. The mobile control’s make me extremely nostalgic for the Game Boy and it’s a wonder why so few paid/freemium mobile games on the App Store have never attempted this type of control scheme...

As someone who broke his femur at 12, and couldn't run competitively afterwards... thank you.

nice!

A very cute and heartfelt vignette, and certainly another note in the book of why videogames are art. From a technical standpoint, I really love the little 'easter egg' descriptions/notes on the scenery outside the building, very sweet. I found that you can't enter the pet shop until you have read the sign, and there is a bug where you cannot read the sign if you walk up to it from the side, so that could do with a little polish. I also feel like this game would have really benefited if you included some of the images you have in the description as 'credits' screens in the game. All in all, very nice, if a bit short, and a lot of the little quotes you have around can get missed very easily. maybe if there was another character who suggested you take a closer look at the things around you?

You Have no choice. no exploration. and stolen heart sprite. its just the undertale heart in different color
