This is really cool! Is the prod move (and girder?) inspired by Worms? I like the little touches like the sprites stumbling when they fall. It's pretty tough! Only made it to the third or fourth level so far but definitely coming back to this one.

Thanks! Yeah, it’s hard not to be inspired by Worms and Lemmings when dealing with tiny sprites 😂 I added the prod as a way to make the NPCs hurry up, but it’s quite versatile (later on it can flip cannons too).

I think I got better at level design during the course of the gamejam, which unfortunately means the later ones are more interesting and the earlier ones are just about being fast with the inputs. By the way, if you want to see the later levels you can unlock them from the pause menu and visit them from main menu-> level select.
