A solid, if short, experience. Great detail (flow of hair, the sleeping prince, and humorous comments along the top in particular).

I like the graphics, and it's a good idea. Mood didn't seem that alone, but it's a nice game!

The idea is good, and the realization too
I agree that the mood didn't seem alone..
By the way I overall liked it

Good idea, stable shame. Shame about the lack of community participation

I really liked your game, very refreshing gameplay.

Gameplay was fun, and was a good example of being arcade-y without being all violent. I appreciate that you didn't bother trying to fudge the theme at the last minute too.

Yeah, in our heads we had imagined a princess all alone waiting for a hero. Which seemed like a good way to use the theme. And well, I guess as you can tell it didn't really turn out that way :(

One of my favourite games on LD22 so far - clean and simple

Wow, nicely done. I enjoy the hair-swinging mechanic, which lets you vault up to slightly higher platforms. Very fun :)

Awesome gameplay-idea.

Very original idea, although it's too short and in the end boring. But innovation is what's important (at least for me)

Awesome twist on the theme. We tried to rule out all the common themes when designing our entry, and it's cool to see that you got one that we didn't think of!

Very innovative, enjoyed the comments up at the top but found the game got a little repetitive, all in all a solid entry!
