Hey! Fantastic game! I love the graphics and how it loads quickly! I had a lot of fun playing. And it comes from a guy who made a very similar game 😛


Thank you very much :)

I'm not looking for anything beyond hobby side projects at the moment so business inquiries may be irrelevant, but regardless here's my email:



Thanks for your reply! Please keep me posted about new projects!

Please change the dash controls to have its own button instead of double tapping movement. The current setup has me dashing fairly uncontrollably while trying to adjust my movement, and any time my hand has a twitch that causes it to double tap the key.

Hi Xendra,

Thank you for the feedback. I will add an option to switch between double press and a designated key in the next update (and update the web version to have controls settings, which is currently only available in the full version).

Update: didn't implement full controls settings yet, but in the meantime I added a checkbox to disable double-press for dash + added X as alternative key for dashing.

So you can go to settings and uncheck the double press dash and use X.

Have fun! :)
