  1. very interesting, I think you need to improve the character's sprite when standing still, he stays with one foot in front of the other just like when he jumps, the frog that jumps very slow I think it's weird you should see this too, it's an interesting game and I intend to play

  2. the scenery is easy to get lost, it needs a location object, a map helps a lot
