I love the game! It's cute and very classic. But the third level was hard to get past.

Loved the game but there is a bug on the last level when you are in full screen the screen fallows the enemy instead of you.

Thanks for letting me know. I’ll take a look.

So much fun But I can't get past that one level

Marsh enjoyed this game and is now in the club!

i hope that i will make more videos on this and found the game quite ravashing

I got stuck on like the 2nd or 3rd level!

Hey Guys, the game looks really cool and I'm eager to have a play but I had a bit of a bug in that when I got the top hat and entered the first door the level didn't end. I was able to move left and right right for ages. Have you come across this bug before?



Thanks for your post. I haven't seen that bug before but I will look into it as soon as I can.

Thanks again,


Hi again,

I've looked into it but I haven't been able to reproduce this bug. Is there anything further you could tell me about how it happened? Does it happen every time or was it just once?



Let me have another play now and I'll post the video for you.



I've posted a video for you to have a lookj at. I'm probably just doing something wrong but hey ho.

and just for a giggle.

Thanks DEVS

Great, thanks for the video - it should help diagnose the problem. I’ll dig into the code and hopefully find a solution.

Thanks for your patience and perseverance!



I think the problem might be occurring when the game attempts to save progress. For some reason it might be failing to do so on your computer. I added some checks in so that if the game isn't able to save it should carry on anyway. I've updated the build with these changes.

It's quite the challenge if you want to get all the coins. Overall, fun & cute. :)
