Thanks for playing and providing feedback! This was my first attempt at a platformer so I definitely agree that the platforming is pretty broken. Wall jumps actually weren't originally intended but as I was playtesting I realized that they were possible, although not the most effective and pretty challenging as you mentioned. The one thing that I do have to disagree with you on is how well it fits into the theme. With a theme like this that's so open-ended I really like seeing all of the vastly different ways that people interpreted it and I certainly feel that the dual purpose aspects of both movement and the treasure chests align with the theme of the jam. Thanks again for taking the time to comment!

Thanks for playing! That's actually exactly how you're supposed to climb up, although it's obviously not implemented very well. And falling out of the map is actually how you win, although it seems I should have communicated that better. :) Glad you enjoyed it!
I'm glad you liked it! Originally there were larger enemies but I had to remove them to achieve a stable frame rate. Which is unfortunate because once you get big enough there's not any challenge. But I do think it actually works out thematically since the Galactic Whale is supposed to be super powerful. Thanks for playing and commenting!
Yeah that's what I was most worried about. I had to remove a ton of extra planets/asteroids to get the frame rate to be consistently acceptable but since the objects are spawned randomly there's still a chance for it to get really laggy if the objects overlap a bunch.
