Game crashed, unfortunately. 

Walked along the bottom and plopped down here, softlocking/crashing the game. Neat concept, wish I could have played more, but I don't feel like going back and collecting those coins again.

Sorry fam.

I managed to get them all. The last coin I got was a hell of puzzle to get to. I thought it was impossible, but I guess figuring out how to solve it fits the message in that area. Very well-made.

I think this game is great. The idea is (to me at least) absolutely novel, and it leads to a lot of out-of-the-box (in this case, it's really all in-the-box) solutions. The controls are really well-polished, it's all too easy to have frustrating controls with platformer games. Great job!

My final tally:


P.S. I'm struggling to find your game on LD47 to rate, care to drop the link? :)

Thank you very much for your words! I don't know why the usual banner from LDjam doesn't appear, so I added that link directly into the description.
