So good

This is an awesome game. Feels like original games such as. Donkey kong, Metroid style exploration, Super Mario precise platform controls. The special items like legend of Zelda.
Has really cool graphics things are stylized in a retro vibe and the story is cute.
Kudos to the developer(s). I wish more games like this come along.
10/10 for me.

Great game

Pretty good game here, surprised it doesn't have more reviews.

The controls still need some work, or maybe it's just me, but I had a hard time using that d-pad.

I'd suggest adding to the pause screen the option to check on how to use your abilities. I accidentally missed the screen that told me how to use a ground pound and I kept mashing buttons to try to figure out how to use it.

I came across one glitch where the big green monster that runs back and forth got stuck to the wall, but thankfully restarting the app fixed that.

Pint sized metroidvania

This is a great little exploration platformer with cute retro graphics and tight controls. Clever level designs add to the fun. If you like metroidvania style games, I recommend this one!
