Brilliant! Nice mix of the original gameplay and new ideas. Love to see more!

Thanks a bunch! Would be fun to make a sequel sometime :)

Pretty good and not as simple as planned, but enough to have a good evening :)

glad you liked it!

nice game


I love the controls and presentation, but the level design is absolutely not keen-ish 😉

I stopped at the part where you have to destroy these crumbling blocks with our head because it just wasn't enjoyable for me at all.

Hope this feedback helps ✌

Sorry to hear it didn’t work for you! I definitely took some creative liberties with it.
