At the start of each level there is a shop. You can spend hearts on 3 things:
- Blocks: use these to build bridges, barriers, and to clobber monsters.
- Jetpack fuel: press and hold jump while in mid-air to use your jetpack.
- Gems: become your final score.
Life is replenished on completing each level.
Monsters also drop fuel and blocks sometimes.
You can modify your block placement with up+left/right etc.

Nice! ridiculously polished for a jam!
Also quite hard! I might need to get a gamepad out for this one. I find Mario-like-momentum really hard to handle on a keyboard, especially while also managing enemies and building on the fly.
+10 for procedural as well! Hope to see you making more carts!
