This is my submission to the ScoreSpace Jam #17 (Theme: Protect)

The goal of the game is to protect your green player from the light.

You can use your yellow player to block the light, protecting your green player.

I can't jump even close to high enough to finish level 6.

What OS were you playing on?

Was it the web version or a downloaded version of the game?

Just wondering, because I did not test the game on Linux or Mac. 

I was playing the web version on windows.

Thanks, was it on Google Chrome or a different browser?

Sorry for all the questions, just want to make sure it isn't a game breaking bug for everyone.

It was on the Brave bowser which has the same base as chrome.
