"Punching can literally solve all your problems"

I agree, and it was a very good use of the theme. I too got stuck on that corridor.  I appreciated the sprite for the player character. The first two levels, I didn't really notice what it was. When I finally noticed it was a dude working a punching cannon, I giggled a little. That's great.

I'm not sure why I had to press SpaceBar to start the game when SpaceBar does noting in game. Otherwise, a lovely little game.

Hi there! Thank you for taking the time to play my game, writing feedback, and your kind words.

I'm sorry you got stuck on the corridor, I should have fixed it before uploading. Happy to hear that  enjoy the player character though.

I set it as space bar as the start button because I wasn't sure what else would have made sense, but it probably would have been better to use something else.  I'll keep it in mind for the future.

Thank you again!

Got stuck on level 4 I think, corridor was too narrow to get trough. Apart from that it was quite fun, liked the idea that punching can literally solve all your problems, either killing the bad guys or getting to places you want to get :D

Hey there, thank you for playing and leaving feedback!  

I had a  feeling  there might be issues with that last corridor. I'll try and fix it soon.

I'm glad you like the "punch everything"  theme and found it fun.  I hope you'll play it again if/when I decide to expand upon it.

Again, thanks for playing and the feedback, it means a lot!
