Great game! One question, how do I gain stars? I noticed that I keep the star as long as I don't get hurt and I don't use dash mode. However, I beat a level unharmed and I didn't get a star. In that level, I got an A+ rank, so I thought I'd earn the star if I got a S rank. However, when I beat the level again, unharmed and with a S rank, I still didn't get a star. So, what do I have todo to earn stars?

Hi ! Thanks for your comment.
To gain a star, you also need to collect every note/sphere in a level, in addition to not getting hurt and avoid dashing.
Getting a star will also allow you to unlock the hardest level :)

Thanks for the reply! Very helpful!

help plz when i try to launch (from itch) it get the error message: "Cannot create subdirectory in temporary directory!"

Hi, maybe you could try to download and unzip it directly?

I see input method keyboard, but there seems to be no way to change it to controller. Is that correct?

Try pressing left/right. If this doesn't work (sorry !) then try using Joy2Key.

I have downloaded the game and I can't execute it :(

After Zoglu logo and "coin" effect, the game goes to black and nothing happens. I have Win7 x64

It's the first time I hear about this. The main menu should appear right after this screen, unless you have a gamepad. Could you maybe try to unplug your gamepad ?

I loved the first demo you published on your website a long time ago, so when I saw the final version here on itch, I was so happy! Really great game!

Fantastic ! Hope it's as good as you expected when playing the demo ! Have fun !

Nice game ! Even if it was a little bit difficult to control the character I really enjoyed it ! A simple but effective game, well done !

Nice, thanks for the video, which helped me understanding why you think it's difficult to control the character.
Still, you seem to get the hang of it at level 2 :)

Awesome game! Only frustrating thing is trying to control the scroll speed while trying to control character at same time

Yeah, seriously I think 3 buttons is a bit too much for this kind of platformer. Sonic only has 1 button.

Maybe you could remap keys, for instance D for jump and S for scroll speed instead? Or use a gamepad?

holy cow, i was not expecting the level of fun and polish this game has! you should be charging money for this dude!

Thank you ! Well, I do charge money for this, even though you pay what you want :p
