Loved the game but was to easy once I figured out the end isn't really random. Some food spawned out of grid and I could not eat it. Also fell through the floor when I hit a rock.  All that aside he Music was really cute and I loved all the models!

The game is really easy, by just pressing the up arrow it can be completed in about 10 seconds but if this was meant for the casual crowd, I can't complain. It does look and sound nice, but doesn't really incorporate the theme too well when food is plentiful and hunger is not really an issue.

Very good music! I don't feel the food was scarce though, if that was the idea, maybe for my children because I never managed to get back to them haha

Love that music.

The graphics are very pleasing, the voxel art is quite enjoyable and is one of my personal favorites. the music and sound are basic, but work. The story is ok. The theme is hard to understand, if the scarcity is the lack of food to fill up the bar, then it does not work because you can just run to the end of the game without worrying about it (As long as you don't run into any cars). The game-play is questionable. It draws comparisons to Crossy Road, but aside from the hunger bar, which I stated earlier doesn't matter, I don't feel the need to hurry. Plus the movement feels weird and I can glitch through walls. If you want to fix this, add polish to the code, randomization for replay value, and make the levels longer.

There was some food I couldn't pick up and walked off the map by accident.

Everything else was awesome! :D

The graphics are so adorable! I love them. And the little butterfly! The music is also really fitting. The crossing-the-road mechanic is fun and the hopping movement of the beaver feels very nice. A couple of issues I found: due to the size of the beaver steps, sometimes I couldn't align it in order to pick the items; there is some strange rotational behaviour when colliding with trees.
