You're welcome!! It feels nice to help out other game devs, and playing Mochi Madness was delightful :)
From what I remember, the ladder glitch would happen upon exiting. I wasn't able to just freely move off the ladder while i went up or down which is good!
Oh yea, you're right there was a "how to play" screen, my bad ^^' I suppose I forgot about it.
I can see why people may or may not want to know about the item abilities. I guess that will be up for you guys to decide, depending on the "tone" you want your game to have, if that makes sense.
Using P to pause the game isn't uncommon! But, more people are accustomed to using ESC or Space. In my opinion, ESC makes more sense, since that button is easier to navigate to for a lot of people.
You're absolutely welcome! I'll be looking forward to it!
