A puzzle platformer by Matthias Falk, made in PICO-8.

The only thing you can do is jump - is that enough to climb a mountain?

Can't launch the game. It tells me it's an unauthorised browser

Please try again now. Have updated the game to fix the problem.

Indeed, it works now. Thanks !

I would agree with Fransouski's comment about the level design. I found that there is usually only one way to traverse through a level and if I missed any step, I would have to start over. There was no adapting to failure, you just had to start over. Other than that, I thought you did an excellent job at introducing the game mechanics and challenges, especially when you introduced the cannons. I can imagine that designing a game where you can only jump can be challenging, but honestly, I thought you did a good job with this game. Most jumping games have only direction, up, however you broke that boundary by challenging the player to go in four different directions.

The game is telling me I pirated it lol. I downloaded it using the itch app.

I just got to play it there. It is a pretty cool game. Adding to collection.

I love this game. I love how simple the design was. I also liked how you were only force to be able to jump and use the level environment around you to achieve your goal. My only thing was the silence was killing me a bit, so some music would have been nice in the levels. Overall I still thought the game was fun.  I showcase this in my first wave of season 2 of Indie Game Showcase.


The concept is reaaaly cool but if I had a feedback, the level design is a little boring : It demands to just wait and if you have not the good timing, you restart and wait again. And also it is too punitive, it demands you really THE good timing, otherwise you crush the white guy for exemple and you're force to restart

Finally got to play this. It's REALLY cool!  Whilst being simple, it's clever too.

You do realise I may have to rip you off for a C64 game. :P

Yessss!! Took me nearly 40 minutes, that was awesome! That surprise at what I thought was the end totally caught me off guard, that was great!

I can see this one tap game on mobile. Other than music; it is great. With a little more polish I think you can make it to mobile.
