it's on this screen, the spikes at the bottom don't hurt
I hate those spikes so much. I forgot to change them back to hurt tiles, possibly on purpose. I used that level to do play testing on many, many failed iterations of the jumping-rope mechanic.

Just played though all the levels. I like the fall away blocks and that player has a lot of lives which would suit increasing difficulty jump challenges. It would be great if some levels were only beatable if player jumps at the correct moment as the tile underneath crumbles, Indiana Jones style. Obviously, some sound effects would make the levels a lot more safisfying.

Not too sure about the jump thru trampoline. First play trough, I actually thought it was a double jump mechanic but only on that level. I think I just found it confusing because players isn't actually on the rope when second tap springs player off it. Also, one of the levels (last i think?) I dropped into the bottom onto spikes but didn't die. Minor, I just wasn't sure if I was supposed to be able to drop down there or not.
I will take this is a hint to make more sound effects

I did a bad job checking all the collisions, no other reason for the spikes not to work.

I don't plan on using the rope trampoline gimmick ever again. It's kinetic artwork for the tech demo ;) I got some great feedback from @SpiderDave on Discord and I'm making plans for a lot of cool player-movement mechanics using the heretofore-unbound B-button.
