Hey! Did you forget to add a link to the game?

That's embarrassing, i forgot to add the link. Thank you @Cuddl3s for pointing that out

Nice game! I found the controls find of hard to use at first but I eventually got the hang of it. I wish the charge was a little more powerful, but I guess that might ruin some of the game balance.

Whoa, this feels very original! The control was a little frustrating first but eventually you'll get used to. The funky music/sfx is fitting to the atomosphere. There's one bug that I noticed: the game freezes when you press Escape and apparently there's no way to resume. Other than that, a pretty solid entry.

This was really fun. The mechanics feel very well-balanced, although I had a bit of a hard time mastering the controls at first. I liked that you could, after getting familiar with the controls, choose whether you wanted a timed run or not. The level feels just a tad long, though.

I went for a timed one and made 02:33:844 and it feels like there's a lot of room to improve.

I like the aesthetics of the game! I especially love the background music. I think it would be great if you can add difficulty selection. The easy option will provide higher dash jump and better arrow controls while the hard option will have the current settings. Overall, this is a good game!

Loves the atmosophere with the soundtrack, dancing mushrooms and facial expressions. Very chill and enjoyable. Also struggled with the controls for quite a while but then got into the groove and kept heading higher. Lots of fun.

Hey, I like the glowy-flowy appearance of the game very much! The sound is quite nice and fits the game very well! I also had a hard time to master the controlls and I got dangled up with my tale (stam) wraped around the logs which presumably lead to me beeing held back mid air (idk). It also sometimes had the wish my stam would give me a littel more support to reach out further. I liked the bouncing off from the logs.

This. Game. Is. ADORABLE! Really fun and clever concept. Really great execution. I especially loved the music, which sounded kind of froggy and mushroomy thanks to the main synth sound (very fitting!). The little "whee" given off by the mushroom was super endearing.

I couldn't quite get the hang of the controls, but it's hard to be mad at the game when you have the cute little Fun Guy smiling back at you :D

OH, I would be remiss not to mention just how much I loved the little dancing mushrooms on the logs.

Cute character, the controls and mechanics took a bit of getting used and was quite frustrating to begin with, but ok once you get used to it, which i guess is pretty standard for a physics based game. Music was nice and fit the vibe too. I felt there was a bit of something weird going on with when stem anchor points got formed in the middle of the air sometimes, but they didn't actually cause a problem. Nice work

Haha you're welcome! Glad that I did, because I think that was my favourite game so far!
I love the music, the sound effects, the presentation… especially all the little details you managed to put into the game, like the dancing mushrooms, the face of the player mushroom…
I'd say it is just a liiiiittle bit too long, but other than that - awesome work!!

Such a cute game. While the controls were quite tricky to learn, it was a lot of fun playing it. The face really nails it! Other than that all important points have already been mentioned in the comments above. Great job!

Omg. Your Mushrooms are so cute! However, for my taste a little bit too hard to control.
I also think the music is really fitting. soo.. yeah.
You can see me struggeling: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/1418525711?t=0h52m1s This is the link to my stream, with the timestamp where your game beginns.
Unfortunately I could not make it to the top, (yet). But other then that it was really fun to play :D

The little funguy looks adorable, and the cheerful sound fits in perfectly with that. Add some funky music and glowing, dancing mushrooms, and you've got yourself an atmosphere in which the endless frustration of the unpredictable physics just doesn't matter so much anymore :) Very original, very fun!

A wonderful little arcade game! I got great first impressions as soon as I launched the game with the neat art, animations & music, all very polished. The quirky voice effects & the generous reverb set a pleasant atmosphere, the particles are a nice touch too.

It took me a little while to get used to the controls, but not too long either. I would have preferred a bit more speed for the left/right rotation, but overall the gameplay was well balanced, hard enough to make it truly satisfying to climb through the branches. My only issue is that I wasn't careful enough to notice I had to go through a specific zone to trigger the time trial - I thought I had a bug when first completing the game.

I'm curious how the physics & expansion of the main shroom works technically, as I've never tried to do anything similar in Unity.

Great job, it shows skill in all facets of gamedev so I'm pretty impressed :)

Very nice entry. The controls are a bit hard to understand/frustrating at first but that's what make the game fun and difficult after the first try.

I really like the music and the graphic/ambiance is nice too.
Well done, especially for a solo entry ;)

Very mushroomy music! This was nice. The physics were interesting but worked well. I didn't try the time attack and I won't. Physics, platforming and me is a bad combination. Graphics are good. This game was easy to pick up and play. Didn't have to read a long paragraph of controls and explanations. That's really nice. Well done!
