This is pretty well made!  a tad jank on the controls after taking a hit but overall solid and charming!

Amazing game! I loved every part of it, but if I were to choose the best part of the game it would be the art and characters design but overall everything was perfect. Good job guys ;)

(1 edit)

ok this was cute. i must say that there was some... infuriating level design here and there, and the light from the light ball could've been stronger, but glimmer is a really cute character and the art is really nice. 

The main character turned out to be very cute!)

Thanks so much! I put a lot into her design! ^_^
