so FUN! - cool concept/mechanics - cute sense of humor - art A+  // I would have played 30 more levels ✿


Thanks so much! I’m so happy to hear that you enjoyed it. Maybe some day your dream of more levels will  come true… :)

please add credit payment, don’t  have PayPal :(

All set! :D Sorry about that.

Hey, loved the game. I did find a bug though, when I tried to start a new game after I'd finished it I just got stuck on a black screen.

Thanks so much! I’ll look into this. Were you playing on a Playdate? I still haven’t received mine yet, so it might take a while to replicate the bug… :(

Yep, I was playing on the playdate.

When you reloaded the game, did it save your progress? On the tile screen select “continue” and you should be on a screen that accesses every level.  

Yeah, I saw that and it worked. I was trying to reset my progress and start from the start again. I ended up clearing my player data from the settings menu.

I think I must be missing some sort of obvious mechanic but I can't figure out how to get the bubble past the spikes around the goal in the second level.  Hint?

Think of yourself as the bubble… :)

Oh, duh! Thanks! A little awkward at first but that clears it up!

Was this made with Pulp or the Playdate SDK?

No problem! I made this game with Pulp. I’m just starting to learn the SDK… slowly… :)

Thanks! Might be the most impressive Pulp game I've played so far.

Wow! Thanks so much.
