The visuals of the game are really good, but I couldn't quite figure out how to use the springs to control the character.


Good concept. I imagine there are a lot of ways that this could be explored.


umm....what! lol I sort of kind of get it but never really got the hand of it an never felt in control :P


Cute graphics and fun to experiment with.


Nice concept, the game itself is quite messy but fun with everything that's happenning on screen.

Good job!


Getting down the timing for the slow falling springs is tricky, but once I managed to make the potato bounce around the cogwheels with something resembling regularity I've had a lot of fun.


a bit rough. it's interesting how you need to think ahead of your jumps. maybe make the falling springs travel with the background?

How did this potato get robot arms and legs? and why does he not use them? nevermind. BECAUSE POTATOES.


Game checks out, can run it on a potato PC. I'll go buy myself some chips now, thanks for that


I thought this game was very fun, found myself spamming left click a lot though. the art and them were very fun too.


Nice visual polish and creative idea for how to make your character move! I do wonder why you gave the potato limbs if he can't use them.


Thanks so much! Yeah, the legs were the result of an earlier design concept that never made it to the final game lol.
