A rather changeling platformer where you step on people to get what you want.

Made in actionscript 2.0, running on current browsers thanks to Ruffle emulator, made for the newgrounds flash forward jam.


A/D/Left/Right move

SPACE jump

S/Down (while in air) dive

W/Up give a helping hand

R restart

Collect all gems and then save them in the chest to complete a level. The game auto-saves.

If the game doesn't start reload the page!

Update 2/3/21: made it generally easier on early levels and fixed music restarting after death.

Update 3/3/21: added medals!

Update 9/3/21: thanks for the frontpage!

If you think it's too hard, here's a walkthrough to show some weak jellyfish that the game is actually easy, also to further remind you the best way to succeed is to copy what you see in the screen.

This game was created by a sadist

alright, mixed feelings, I think this game pretty much nails what its going for, it just not for me and to be honest I don't really know who its for. The weird wonky physics of your movement make it impossible to enjoy traversing the unforgiving terrain, and even when you do make some progress you feel little to no accomplishment. this game is not a rage game, it is a game about gradually becoming a completely catatonic and despondent husk, no pain or hate, just empty. This may sound harsh, but like I said I think that's what this game is going for, and I did enjoy some parts of it. the ascetic was wonderful, the soundtrack and creepy visuals made a very cool and disconcerting atmosphere.
that, however, does not make up for the gameplay, which is simply far to masochistic for my tastes.
I stopped at level four btw, which seams to be a common theme in these reviews.

Thanks for the generous score and a fair review. I very much knew from the start than not everyone would "enjoy" this game, but it's the wonders of browser games and newgrounds that games can be mean and still find an audience that enjoys them
