Cute platformer! I included it in my Fantasy Console Game Jam 3 compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)

Haha, thank you! I tried to give a lot of clues (without writing anything) that one of the main purpose of the games is to walljump ;). That's why there's lots of flowers up that wall, I wanted to played to realise they can jump off the wall again and again. I think I should have put little cues in thinking back on it, ah well!

Thanks for playing and recording it :)

A fun, challenging game; it reminded me of Super Meat Boy. It was kinda tough using a keyboard, so controller support would definitely help. Flickering was a tad annoying. It also took me a minute to figure out you push the up key to activate the orbs. Great job overall!

Thanks a lot! I agree, the flickering is frustrating haha. It's completely inspired by Super Meat Boy and I would have loved to programmed as smooth control as they did. And agreed, it seems the orb wasn't the most obvious thing, a more literal switch would have been a better option. Thanks again :)

I like it but the flicker kills my brain :'(

It has the one more go feeling and it looks fresh and bright :)

well it's pretty good !
shame about the stuttering it really detracts from the experience;

I'm going to have one more go :p

Developer

Hehe, trust me, it was worse before! I'm sure its something simple to fix and do but I was focused on making the level interesting and just ran out of time. "Pretty good" is fantastic all things considered! Thank you :).

I'm curious about what countries are you moving to/from :P

Regarding the game: the sfx are awesome. Would you consider uploading the cart so that I can learn how to make those kind of sfx?

I can't seem to get past the first screen though O_o

There's the link to the cart! I thought the web player would automatically share the code/cart actually

What do you mean by "first screen"? If you reached the end with the yellow character then that's the entire game! haha. Other than that, you press "up" on the orbs or "p" blocks and wall jump around :).

I am English but live in Spain so I was fairly distracted during the jam haha.

(Gonna be checking out your games in a sec ;D)
