15 levels? Sounds kind of short, are there multiple routes or different objectives for levels?

You can complete most levels under 2 minutes if you are good, but a beginner will need more so there are up to 3 stars awarded if you complete the level within 15%, 30% or 60% of the time needed to complete them if you don't fall at all. The game tester played for hours before he got all of the stars. Thanks for the fancy app link.

I'll take one for the team. Downloading now

Not bad at all. Controls work well. The usual left/right/jump

Graphics are nice. Feel a nice looking menu would give the game some polish. First level was long and quite tricky in some bits. Good small download size. Well worth picking up if you like tricky platformers. (Dev needs to amend the word reply when you die as it should be replay)

Decided to pick this up and I am not disappointed. Kelly is great. It's a solid platformer, but what shines here is the level design. Colorful, vibrant, really cool moving obstacles to avoid. Really the variety in obstacles here is the star.

I'm actually going to make a comparison to Kid Tripp. While Kelly is nowhere as masochistic as Kid Tripp, it shares that game's precision timing. Similar to that game, if you learn the level, you can speed through in one fluid flow, with perfectly timed jumps that let you reach platforms the split second before they vanish, etc. You can take your time in Kelly if you want, but to get three stars, you want to be fast and precise

I'm only on the second level but Kelly has already impressed me. It's challenging and inventive from the start, and offers some really cool vibrant levels to platform through. I definitely recommend giving Kelly a try

@ANIV - I know it probably hinges on the success of the game, but do you have any plans to add more levels?

One suggestion:
- Show level time on Level Select so the player can have a goal (improve time) to strive for

I'm level 6, but I've only gotten 3 stars on the first level. Speeding through levels is a challenge. The later levels become more puzzle platformer-ish, but always retain that precision platformer focus on timing. Some cool uses of obstacles in interesting ways
