Really nice game, I played it when it was first released (weeks ago!) but forgot to rate.

The game is a bit short but it's amazing, and the fast-paced platform action really had me on edge at some moments. I also liked the ability to risk your life for that extra jump boost.

Absolutely amazing! This game just made me more stressed than anything I've ever played in my life :p The accumulation of jumps was also a nice feature that worked really well, and I don't think I've ever seen that before.

I tried really hard to find feedback, but I can really only find one tiny criticism:

In some levels, your player could just fall into a pit or get stuck somewhere. Then I'd just be like "well, guess I'll have to wait 10 seconds until the fish comes to eat me". Maybe make sure there's always a way out?

All in all, can't believe this was made for a game jam, it's amazing! (Oh and, always nice to see somebody use Godot game engine :) )

Sounds like you had quite the experience.  We're very happy to hear it had such an impact, and thanks for this feedback.

Great suggestion for the pits.  The pits have been fixed, and the changes will  be in the patch we're doing after the jam has ended.

Awesome stuff, the character is very cute and the artwork in general is phenomenal! It actually started getting a bit harder with so much move speed at the end, but overall I thought the upgrade system was really cool. Great work!

I loved the music of this game.  The cat was also very cute, and the beginning story made me wonder what was going to happen next!  Didn't find any bugs with the game.   Had difficulty getting past the first level with the fish.  Kept dying!  Probably need to practice this game some more to get the hang of it!  Excellent submission!

It’s good to hear it’s stable.  Were you having issues with the multi-jump powerup?

I guess I didn't get that far.  The fish was difficult to get around for me so I wasn't able to get past him.  It's me though (not the best at platformers), the game appeared solid.  Very fun!

The concept is not so out of the box on this one, but wow this is one hell of a submission. It is so good I can't believe this was done in just thirty days... This is a game that can be sold for a good price - very polished and well crafted.

Also when I saw the initial loading screen I was wondering if you are using the same engine I use... and I was right - you are also a Godot user, I see :)

Graphics and music are awesome! Game is so funny! What else can I even say? Good Job!

Played the first version! Very cool platformer with excellent graphics and a surprisingly novel gameplay form. I had never played a game where one accumulates jumps. Brilliant!

Thanks so much.  A small game with this theme was a great opportunity to experiment with wild jump ideas.  I'm glad it came together.  XD

nicely polished cuite little platformer doesn't do all that much but what it does it does it well, has nice control animation and design but a levels can just feel like a lot of assets toasted around but still looking amazing. but apart from that there isn't really else to say apart from the kitty is a little cutie <3
