Wow, this game is terrible. I suck at it hard but it's not even fun. Usually I enjoy games that I suck at since I love a challenge, but I can't stand the finicky controls and messed up physics.

Tried 1st level, took 27 seconds (roughly) to get past, tried level 2, RAGE from the beginning after the first jump, that M stone thing was where I screwed up, say 5/6 times before quiting...

edit: restarted level 1, completed in 19 seconds, one try.

This game is pretty damned bad.
I mean there are hundreds of variations of the game but it boils down to this one having the most cumbersome physics engine and a bad control scheme, not worth my wasting my time playing something of such bad quality.

Try something good, like happy wheels instead.

Edit: Actually with some perseverance and practice, this game is entirely surmountable but pretty tough.
Some of the earlier levels seem a bit more bullshit than the later ones though, and it's pretty mean that you can get 0 points for taking too long.
The physics still work against you an awful lot though.

Edit: Balls, I got a score of 3504, but the arcade glitched and did not accept my score.

Edit: I persevered and got the top score of 4152, I'll probably give it another shot because of the levels I got 0 points on.
I guess I couldn't resist the challenge of overcoming something I thought was so flawed, but it really isn't when you get the hang of it.
