Very nice looking game! I do feel like the life/currency should be introduced to the player better, because I had no idea what I was doing in the start. The platforming is good, and the player character feels floaty. The sound effects are also smooth and snappy.

Played for a while, had lots of fun! The art style has a really strong pallete, I'd maybe just swap the font for a more pixel looking one. The jump feels a bit weak, but the wall jumping is lots of fun. I like the effect of going back to the start of the level when you die, but it feels slow and frustrating when you've advanced a lot. 

Oh hey, thank you VERY MUCH for the comments! <3 I will absolutely take a look into your suggestions right away. :)

We just added some nice fixes for the game, would be great if you have the time to try it again! Currently looking for more "pixelated" font and aiming to make the death travel system more faster.
