I just recently found this game and I love it! Is really fun to play and the colors are easy to look at :D (I really like the "beep??" part, is my kind of humor xD) 

thank you! I’m glad someone finally used the beeper

A well polished, well balanced little game. The pixelart is beautiful and the sound effects are great. I loved meeting the little duck in the end. The screen-shake is the only thing I would change about the game. It's so strong to the point where it actually affects my ability to time the jumps.

Congratulations on the game!

That was soooo cute and fun to play! :D I really loved the atmosphere and games mechanics, and if there was a longer version I would definitely play it!

Made a video - Starts at - 9:22

Really nice art style and great execution of the idea. Controls feel very good.

The screen shake bursts upon impact are a little strong though and can feel quite disorienting at times. Especially when the little frog lands on a very fast spinning sphere/planet where you need quick reaction time, but you also have to figure out first how fast the planet is spinning, but everything is still shaking.

Cute little game :) The art is amazing and the idea is solid! :)
I would love a camera shake slider, it is a little too much sometime.
Also, as the planets are quite simple it is kinda hard knowing the speed of them in the heat of the moment, so some indication might be neccessary!
