The art for this game was awesome :D, but the game was very buggy. For instance, moving obstacles will only move if you can see them on screen.
Also, the link says Windows, but its a web game

I love the art style, and I wanted to like the game more than I ended up liking it. It's all because of the bug that olav_st points out where moving obstacles only move while they're visible on the screen, and the fact that they blink out of existence much too easily. This caused me to always be crushed by the 2nd can, with no seeming way to escape it.

That cupcake has some incredible personality and I hope you'll keep it up. If you enjoyed the coding aspect you can probably get the physics and garbage collection aspects ironed out eventually. Otherwise, a developer looking for a team can probably help make this idea shine.

I like it :) Captures the theme quite well and the graphics are really cute. Without the bugs (moving objects only move when visible, collision detection uses bounding rectangle, getting stuck when jumping) it would have been much more enjoyable

Love the cupcake. Cute. And amazing how many butter-jokes are in there :-)

You can definitely tell your strength lies in Art, that's not a bad thing! There were a few bugs in the code, and the gameplay felt a little lackluster, however the game world, and ideas were pretty decent. I would say you spent too much time on the art, when you could have put some more work making it feel nicer

interesting idea, nice art, bad execution. I don't think it's possible to get away from the second rolling can - i gave up after several attempts.

You can get past the second can if you lead it off the box and jump over it. Also, you can stick to the ceiling and jump around the corner to avoid the third can.

The graphics were excellent, but the gameplay seems like it needed some collision bugs fixed.
