A short story sets off a grand adventure of arcady, platform-hopping fun in an increasingly unstable world.

As the levels progress, various aspects of the game begin to breakdown… Try to reach at least Level 11 to see the full instability!

Gameplay Spoilers: First, your permanent platforms start to crumble. Then, the walls give way while dead-pixels fill your screen. Even your character isn’t immune to the madness. By level 11, the game has fully broken down and you play like this for as long as possible. There are bits of story sprinkled throughout, all the way to level 300+.
