A downloadable game for Windows and Linux


2D side-scroller platformer game, set in a "Dark Candy" world, where you create your own timed platforms to overcome the hazardous environment or use them as shields against traps.

Our Goal was to do only one level, but highly polished.


When comfort food turns into the stuff of nightmares, only you can help Hazel escape this treacherous dream world, made out of candy and cake. 

Will she manage to escape or will she inevitably fall victim to this sweetest of nightmares?

Be smart when traversing this dark candy world. Avoid the traps with your bubblegum magic, collect all Bonibonbons and most importantly, don't get yourself killed. 


This game was our first semester project at  "S4G School for Games".

Very beautiful game with good difficulty. It wasn't too easy, but also never felt unfair. I  did it after a few tries. I can't believe this is a first-semester project. Good job!
