Cute little 2D platformer game. The little black flying thing were so annoying but i found a way how to avoid them. Makes a lot of fun and the character control is smooth and well done. Thanks for participating.

Oh, In the and I smiled so much, really nice, simple story! The one thing I have reminded the most is those black little squares that flying to me. They are a little bit annoying, BUT it's adding some good mood. One thing I would change is trigger colliders of the spikes, because I think it's simply too big. 

Great work!

I do believe I should've spent more time on making the black box easier. Thanks for the feedback! :D

Very cool simple platformer.
I really like the humor! :D
Whole game i was like - why r those shells just laying everywhere?
And then i realised but it was too late....
Good job on your entry :)

The platforming was solid but I found it unfair in places. For example that black square would appear from nowhere and send me back to the beginning of the level!

Also, I wasn't really that motivated to chase down the triangle with the bow, since it wasn't clear exactly what had happened to it? Did it run away from us? Was it kidnapped? I'm a bit confused. :o

Thanks for the feedback! I did attempt to make the black square more fair during development but it seems I didn't help the issue. You're right that there is no clear motivation, but we tried to convey it through the heart that would appear every time we saw her. Again thanks for the feedback!

Good game! Love platformers :) Game feel is nice, art is simple yet appealing, sound FX are good and the background music is not bad, but a longer loop would make it less repetetive & better. Also that chasing black square gave me a hard time haha! Just a question was it intended, that after level restart (when I died) that chasing square remained at the position at when I died? If yes - it kind of helped me beat this game! :)

Thanks for the feedback! I agree that the music loop could've been better, but we were running out of time and the fix just didn't feel entirely necessary. The black box (I call it Birb) staying at your last death wasn't intended, but it did leave a nice opening for people to get around him.  He was making development turn into a horror game for me xD. Again thanks for the feedback!
