A-d-o-r-a-b-l-e. I think my heart melted the first time my poor little Whaley landed on an urchin and flipped over. That squeaking sound! :'(
The core mechanic has an enormous amount of potential and I can see it leading to plenty of puzzles and challenges. Unfortunately, some small aspects of the feel made the game very hard for me, for example falling too fast, or jumping too low. I actually never managed to get to the levels shown in the last two screenshots, which is a shame because they looked super fun!
I can't see much of the Bolt implementation, but it seems clean and to the point.
Overall very nice entry, congrats!
Love this game. Good fun with tight platforming! I would like a better balance between the two mechanics though. There is something clunky about having both abilities on the same button. I think it works against the twitch game-play encouraged by the level design. I hope you continue this further.
P.S. Cute death anim / sfx
Whaley is super cute, even during their death animation which I've seen a lot. The jumping/falling feels a bit fast, but otherwise I really enjoy it! Use bubbles to build platforms, or charge bubbles as an attack. I wish I could get to the boss! Good graph layout.
