Going left without any hint got me confused. Before I search for the boxes, I tried to jump to the right side over and over again.
Its a game made for ExtraCredits holiday game jam(2nd EC jam).
In this game we focused on granting player upgrades(gifts)
as often as to keep him engaged in game.
Game is inspired by metroidvania games where you are getting permanent upgrades but it is also peaceful platformer(no enemies) so mechanics of your gameplay constantly change.
It is also short(it will take more for casual players of course but someone who is playing platformers from time to time will finish it in less than 10 minutes), but satisfaction of progress that player made will be big enough that he will eventually like the game.
Controll scheme is simple:
ARROW KEYS - MOVE
Z - RUN (UPGRADE)
X - JUMP
C - DASH (UPGRADE)
A - PLACE BLOCK BELOW YOURSELF (UPGRADE)
S - ACTIVATE ICE WALKING SHOES (UPGRADE)
TAB - HELP WINDOW

It's something like metroidvania, you need to explore possible ways to progress. 8-bit inspired doesn't mean going right all the time :D
I like the mechanics and I think It can be a great game! but I'm not a fan of the music :/ sorry
Too many turns and jumps fail due to 3-key limit, please add full controller support.
