  • The source code is distributed under the GNU GPLv3 license and the image and sound assets (contents of the folders data/img, data/song and data/tileset) under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 license.
  • The game was only tested thoroughly by me. You can expect to find some bugs - if you find them, please let me know.
  • Regarding the soundtrack, credits go to Zergananda and Francesco Corrado.
  • The "bundle.rb" is not part of the source code of the game, it's a utility script I use to create a bundled file with all the source code.
  • The level editor I have used to create all the stages is also available here.


The first goal of this repository is for people to play the game and give feedback on the gameplay, graphics, soundtrack, etc. However, improvements to the source code and new ideas will also be welcome.

If you're interested in contributing with the source code, contact me on so I can give you an overview of the project's structure. If there are many people interested, I will then include such overview in this README.
