If you're lucky you might find the golden lemon of your dreams at the end. Only have a couple minutes left in your break? Don't worry, speedrunners will be rewarded with extra points!

Z/C  - Attack
X/V - Jump
Down+Attack - Throw a bomb

You can swap the jump and attack key at the title screen.

Tips & Tricks

There is always a safe route through the level if you follow the ladders. Don't jump down if you are out of bombs and don't see a way out. Crates can be used as stepping stones.

Collect gold to get more health. Get as many item flowers as you can. Use your bombs wisely.

Well executed, both frustrating and addictive. It would do well with some more lvls plus a save function, cuz aweh! I keep losing my preciouzzz double jump feather that I worked so hard for! Or what do you say Blizzz?

Great to hear that you like the game. :) It's made in PICO-8, which has very strict limits on the amount of sprites and code size. That's why I couldn't cram in any more sprites for other areas. Saving was left out to give each run a fresh start. If you spent one run exploring and got all the upgrades then all future runs would no longer be a challenge.  See it like a power star in Super Mario. It's awesome to find it, but it's only temporary.

Remove crates and item flowers, as well as all powerups including lives and bombs. Please
