it has heart, this game. fred wood’s love. it’s a tiny platformer with a strong sense of verve that can be attributed to james bennett‘s chill musical contributions and the game’s visual design: each stage features a different hue from a palette of secondary and muted colors that reminds me of the commodore 64, and these monocolor graphics are combined with a gifted eye for making textures and details pop just from transposing color and black.
the level design is clever, taking us through the conceptual landscape of the 2d platformer, and reflects a sense of humor that borders, but isn’t quite, sadism. it’s a good game, and it costs a dollar. i paid a dollar for it; won’t you?
