After all it was possible to make jumping smooth on these mushrooms the SPACE key? Look at Ring of Zaks as there it is made.

Thanks Sparkles. Oops! That wall should have been solid. Hint: take the pickaxe with you when you ride the minecart.

Chlodnik, you'll need two rocks to find the safe combination.

And that I have. A whole bunch of them. Nothing major that would stop the completion of the game but there are two places you can get stuck and the fall into nothingness Sparkles found too.
  • You can move around when reading scrolls.
  • When eating you can move for a second before the eating animation plays.
  • Not all mushrooms play the jumping sound when jumping on them.
  • Can walk through left wall and fall into nothingness in "SOMEWHERE NEARLY NICE".
  • If you turn off the spare ore crusher when it is closed the delayed opening sound still plays.
  • Can get stuck in upper right corner of "THE ORE CRUSHERS".
  • If you turn off the crusher in "THE ORE CRUSHERS" when it is closed the light turns red but it doesn't stop.
  • The left "THE ORE CRUSHERS" is "THE ORE CHUSHERS"
  • Can get stuck between the pipe and ground in "A LITTLE ALCOVE".
  • The underwater death animation when wearing scuba gear is a full image (six Dizzys) not animated.
  • You can get the honey without having dealt with the bees first.
  • The right side floor of "CAVERN ROOF" is cloud material.
Also at one point I couldn't get back over in the mine cart. I was searching for the last star and every time I tried (no mater what I had or didn't have in my inventory) the cart would fall short. So I reloaded an older save and it worked perfectly. I haven't been able to get it to not work again so I have no idea what the problem was.

Just a suggestion but maybe you could put something around/behind the ore crusher's lights to show they are supposed to be there and not just a floating dot. When I initially saw the first one I added it to the list of errors until I found the second one and realized exactly what it was.
Another thing that would make sense is if you made it so the granite rock weighed you down like the sandstone rocks do.
Also shouldn't Theo have a teleport cutscene? And need five stars too like in the original game?


As for the game itself, pretty good. I liked all the added puzzles. I didn't realizes how much I despised going back and forth through the pit to get rocks until I didn't have to do it. Thanks a lot, you ruined the original game for me. :v2_dizzy_tongue2:

How strange Andy. I thought these games were standalone and it was made with version 2.4. Perhaps someone with more 'knowledge' can help.
