It's incredible! Mechanic is quite cool, music and pixel art are neat and I just love the game! It's really fun :)

But it was a bit hard for me to get used to controls. I'm not a true gamer, sorry :(


this is a fun game, i like the music

Welcome back mmattugh! I really like your games!

This was great! The soundtrack and art mesh really well gameplay feels fluid and fun as well, the only gripe I have is that when performing the second jump/launching, the arrow seems to kinda automatically go downwards, this seems like a limitation of keyboard controls however (or maybe I'm just bad), I bet it would feel great with a controller or maybe even with touch controls. Great work! :D
