    Holy hell... Guys you need to check this out.

    Very simple yet well-implemented controls. Tap and hold the left or right side of the screen to move in that direction. Run for a certain distance to gain momentum, and you automatically jump of the end of platforms. Stop just before the end and walk to drop down. This is essential for platforming in this gem.

    The first few areas teach you how to do these by providig a simple scenario with these elements introduced one by one. Eventually they add retracting spikes, dripping water (which seems harmful to you), etc.

    The level designs are well-thought out, and really brings out the simple platforming mechanics' potential.

    Surprisingly, the game has voice acting, which is pretty refreshing as most games of this genre only use text. Kinda elevates the atmosphere a bit more.

    Visuals, as seen on the screenshots, are pretty good. I think ambient lighting could improve the experience, but it looks decent even without.

    It's free, asking only for a buck to remove ads, and the other IAP is to buy hints which show you a walkthrough of how to complete the levels, which are certainly unnecessary because you should be able to figure out the correct path to get to the next rooms.

    Yep good shout. At first i thought 'oh no no jump button' but obviously you have to use a bit of strategy

    Love the graphics, professional voice audio, nice creepy sound effects. Well worth it, going to buy this for sure so the dev gets something

    Oh man, this is awesome, thanks. The controls are simple and tight, which is especially hard for platformers on a touchscreen (I hate virtual d-pads so much). The puzzles are elegant. And I'm a sucker for minimal, atmospheric narrative games. Sold!

    Interesting inexplicable nerd voice, reminds me of Spiral Episode 1.

    Great game at any rate.

    Just finished the game, pretty short but its free so no complain there.

    I was kind of hoping for a scary/creepy twist at the end but, guess they went "lighthearted" twist there lol

    Hi everyone! Thank you all for the kind words, I'm a developer:)

    Luciano1084, sorry for this bug. The game minimizes rarely when you run it, you can just run it again, and everything will be fine.

    Awesome game! The graphics & audio / voiceover are all great. You can tell a great amount of effort went into making this gameplay feel seamless. I've only played for a short time, and I already can't wait to get back in and see how the game presents new challenges & progresses.

    I also love that you're not forcing a control scheme of a gameboy. I liked tiny dangerous dungeons, but with that game, the controls really started to get in the way.

    Great work!
