...to escape the Hole Of Infinite Darkness and confront the phantom that put you there!

Got it as part of a bundle and only tried it because it has a witch theme.I got quite ambitious but had to give up on a level because it just seemed to be undoable. Nevertheless I would recommend to try this out as most of the levels were quite fair and doable with a bit of training. The graphics are so cute, even if the witch is so tiny.


Hey! Thanks for your comment I really appreciate it. :D You must have nearly finished it, so close! If it's the one with the wind all across the middle, you go to the right, up, then drop down, then boost up once you have the orb. If it's one of the ghost levels you're stuck on, you can tap up to kinda ski along the floor quickly, that might help. Or it could just need to be lucky getting through them, there are a couple of levels that rely on luck a bit; I did make it pretty tricky near the end, sorry about that. There is a little ending sequence like the intro at the end and a little relaxing tune as a reward! :) Thanks again for playing this comment made me so happy :D:D

I did not get an option to install it on the itch client.

The topic bellow suggests that it will remain a problem unless the game developer fixes it on their end.


Ah, thanks for the info, I wasn't aware of this. I think it can be fixed if I use the Itch butler to upload. I'm looking into it now! :D

Done! Thank you for bringing this up, it should work now! Have funnnnnn :D
