Enemies and obstables
Poisonned forks appear on the branches at the beginning of the game. If you touch them, you are dead.
Round forks appear often between branches. If you touch them, you are dead.
Once upon a time, in the World Wide Web gitdom, there were watchers. They were replaced by stargazers so now they seek revenge.
You are dead if you touch them, unless you jump on them. If you do so, you will be able to double jump.
They are an evolved form of watchers: they throw forks. The forks are poisonned, so you die if you touch them.
Buy extra clones of Hotfix to continue playing when you are hit or are falling.
Running out of time ? The time machine allows you to slow down time. Press S to activate (will only work if you bought the feature).
