Wonderful use of simplicity and reuse of level design. I've always loved it when games don't just throw *new* levels in but reuse old ones in a different way. Great job. Slightly...frustrating going through the game and the point not being explained. So points off for that. But good, clean, and original game. =)

Why thank you, Im very glad you enjoyed it. Yeah I was getting sick of all these platformers where you jump, walk, jump walk, avoid spikes, walk etc,
So I decided to add a new angle to it :)

There is very little point since I am currently making a sequel explaining more.
If you got all the paper (or fish like things of blobs of white, etc) you will see a newspaper cutting at the end which explains just a tiny bit.

Good to know its not completely ignored, and i will try to add more story to the second

Any ideas and improvements would be nice :)

I'm stuck.
It's an interesting game but after I feel like a ghost I don't know what to do.
EDIT: Nevermind.
But a lesser mind than me would have never figured this out.
The hard part was doing it, so it seemed as if you weren't supposed to.

Making games is hard, but satisfying.

Haha ok i get you now, theres a more interesting ending if you get all the white scraps of paper, and its not a complete ending because there will be a more in-depth sequel.
Sorry to confuse you, it used to bring messages up when you get any collectable

What did anyone think of the controls/movement/physics?
