A puzzle based platform which challenges you to choose how you solve each level. The levels get increasingly more complex and teasing with several enemies and paths to choose. Want to be a completionist? Find all the stars in the 28 levels to complete the game fully, or just find weird and wacky ways to complete levels to waste your time.

I made this game totally by myself, with a little lecturer help when publishing it to implement the acheivements and leaderboards where needed as well as testing the game before release. This game taught me a lot about the process when it game to making games and only inspired me to go further into the feild and consider it as a full time career.
