I pressed every button on my keyboard and the game didn't start. Whatever fire means, the controls in the bottom left dont help you start.

What is fire, and how do you press it? Could't you just make it POSSIBLE to start the game?
I can't start the game
Lots of fun, would really benefit from a level select screen and multiple available levels at a time, in case you get bored/frustrated with one level.
Really solid jam entry. Good tempo in progression from level to level, going for an epic finale and well showcasing the potential of the concept.
The constant shifting between movement and aiming (more of a guessing) golf/worms/artilery style is interesting, albeit I personally cannot get over the dissonance of the two playstyles.
Platformers without direct movement have been showing here and there, with the biggest of late I can think of is Dandara.
