One of the most fun little platformers I've ever played.  It's not very long, but it's well worth the price.  

The platforming is solid.  The difficulty feels just right and there are a couple clever platforming tricks you'll get to perform.  The ending twist was a nice touch and it made me instantly want to go back and play through the game again, which I've done about half a dozen times at this point.  

It does have some audio balancing issues, but those are easily bypassed with a little volume adjustment.  That may be my one real complaint with the game and it's minor. 

I hope we get a revisit of this in the future with more levels because I really, really enjoyed this game.


I definitely appreciated the secrets, and the difficulty scaling was great! Now I'm going to say audio wise it needed some balancing and loudness control, but the ending theme was worth the finish. Great job!


I love this game especially the blow horn in the game. It is a fun platformer game and only $3.00 or more and has good music. This game is great and I would recommend to try it at least.

Had some fun with this one! Short but warrants multiple play throughs. Has that addictive "I'll get it next time, just one more try" element. Hype Mantis is HYPE! Graphics are a bit rough, but the control is smooth, and the bookshelf is tiny.
