Have played the first 20 levels. It's a nice little platformer with a small twist: you collect stars to complete the level but with every sar you collect, the level gets darker.

There seems to be one IAP available to remove the level timer, but that's also showing as free at the moment. I haven't bothered - the level timers seem fair and I've not run out of time on any level.

Enjoying this so far, I unlocked the level timer as I wanted to test the other modes but it doesn't seem to work, the levels all still have the padlock on any can't be selected.

Controls seem good but in sometimes have a delay when navigating the menus, the English isn't perfect but I like it, it's quirky.

Recommended esp for those of you who like puzzles.

Cool game but IMO it really needs some GC leaderboards to compare times and achievements are always kind of cool too. It would also be nice if the timer option was in a settings menu or something so it could be toggled on & off. I went ahead and unlocked it so it would be in my purchase history (assuming it's not a consumable). Anyway gamewise, this is pretty good stuff. I played the first few levels. If it gets Achievements & Leaderboards I could see this getting as fun and competitive as one of the Mikey games.

They aren't really different modes, just more levels. Each unlocks when the previous one is completed.

Controls are a bit problematic at times in later levels as you can get snagged on scenery occasionally, but not enough to ruin it.
