As the first one to complete the game (According to the Kong scoreboards, anyway), I have to say that all the levels are original and fun. My hat’s off to you, sir!

in slide, you may want to check your spelling and grammar in the credits

hey, did you mean “brogrammer” and using art as a verb? these are just in-jokes between my friends and I. please let me know if it was something else.

no, those were it. just a warning, people will see that and rate you down simply because it looks like you didn’t check your spelling and grammer. You have a very good game overall (and not many…
