I like this game, it's fun for a time killer


Cool puzzle platformer! But it's a bit short


Yes, it's still a prototype but I'm working on new levels. Watch for new updates. Thanks for playing!

It just says this for me: abort(114). Build with -s ASSERTIONS=1 for more info.

Mac btw.

Sorry but I can't reproduce the game on Mac devices. I've solved some warnings for upcoming build. Thanks.
