    It is a boring forest. But I had fun hopping about for a bit. Didn't get all the treasures though, but I was content once I realized I didn't really need to hurt the monkeys at all :)

    I utterly love the animations of the old guy! If you had had more variation in the surroundings this would've been a lot more addicting! Still, I did find all the treasures.

    fwiw, I am working on a post compo version where the level is more sketched out :)

    Good start. It would be much more fun to play if the monkeys presented a challenge. As it stands now, you can just run right past them...

    Overall solid game, the graphics while simplistic, work pretty well, though i wish there was more variation in the level

    I won! Could have used more variation, but the names of the treasures kept me going.

    Liked it, is a fun game. Monkeys are a bit tough, have to throw a lot of stones to kill one, I preferred to continue without killing them.

    Also, a mini map would be great to know where the f@$%! I am :P

    Nothing new, but fun enough nonetheless. And I love the player character art.

    He's way too fat to climb. I had fun, but I just couldn't find the last remaining treasure and gave up :(

    I like the adventurer main character. A few graphical glitches and weak sound, but apart from some polish issues overall I am very impressed! Keep up the good work.

    I found all but 1 treasure. The art style and animations are very good. My only niggle was that anytime I tried to jump up the "stair step" areas the little guy would grab onto the side of the wall. Perhaps having a separate button to hold down for him to grab the walls might work? Other than that I really enjoyed it.

    Good game ... I love how mr. explorer climbs through the level. Though it gets a bit boring after a while.

    Game completed!
    This was a fun and straightforward platformer. Good character graphics; the tiles were pretty simplistic and had some rough edges (like visible on the stairs in the screenshot). There were some bugs, too, like when the floor would vibrate continuously. I didn't understand why the rocks were limited, when there were piles of them everywhere including under pretty much every monkey. But, I played through the whole thing and enjoyed it. Thanks for the signs--without them, finding every last treasure would have been annoying.

    Neat game. Not too much of a challenge, but a solid game nevertheless. It could use a bit more of variety in level design as well as enemies.

    Not very inventive, but what was there was well executed. The controls were smooth and responsive and my favorite thing about this entry was the wall-climbing mechanic. Unfortunately, this was rather unremarkable in all other aspects.
