From what I can tell, the game ends on room 20 because I can't figure out any way past it.

This game starts out very promising but has a few annoying quirks about it like spike depth order and the custom engine that feels like setting the default engine to 60fps while making the Kid move faster horizontally. It introduces a lot of mechanics in a short time and doesn't fully utilize all of them. The first 10 rooms primarily play with sideways gravity, and the second set of 10 rooms has weirdly precise timing with potentially bad hitboxes (from what I can tell but maybe I'm just bad). Found myself getting kind of annoyed with a bunch of the timing screens because cycles are persistent on death which makes the timing just randomly not work out in your favor due to not much foresight being given.

I guess it's worth a play somewhat because it's kinda neat, but if you find yourself getting frustrated, it isn't something I feel is worth trying to finish. Note that this game also has a non-standard window size.
