Thank you very much my man for your words, and for playing!
The art was all my wife's first attempt at pixel-art, It was a fun project for us. While I can sympathise, about the length of the initial guide laser, I intentionally made it short to give the player a bit more of a challenge, as just seeing the whole path made it trivial in my opinion.. However, I appreciate it's a delicate balance between making something challenging and making something accessible.
(I also agree about the slow motion effect, and would've liked to implement something like that, though sadly i'm not the fastest developer in the world haha)
