Ended just as it was getting interesting, unfortunately. But pretty successful for a Ludum Dare game.

Not totally sure this isn't the game play but...it's not working? I press the keys and nothing happens, but I switch to another window and back the guy has moved after all?

DU, it shouldn't do that. Try clicking on the game to put the browser focus on the Flash object. I don't know why it would move when you're in another window - maybe update Flash?

Still waiting for that conceptual leap on Level 12.

Level 12 hint: you can touch the princess by just falling past her.

That's a fun game.

13, anyone?

Level 12 can be done with having to fall past the princess.

The princess needs to fall in 13.

I am counting the levels wrong? 13 is the one with the love heart and the question mark, right?

13 can be done like this: knock the block above you, shimmy to the right before it falls, then jump onto it once it has fallen and before the block below you falls; jump up and touch the high block to the left, then wait for it to fall; leap onto the double stack to your left; leap onto the lover heart and run over the top four blocks of the love heart, taking care not to touch the lower one between the two groups of two; go down into the heart, wash, and then climb the steps to the princess.

I maybe counted wrong?

Well the princess needs to fall in level 12, but you should be able to finish the level right next to her.

I thought thirteen was the one with three stories, where the princess starts on the top, you're in the middle, and the river's on the lowest.

Well, just add 1 to all my posts above. I can't see the level numbers, so I thought that one was 12.

If 13 is the three storey one, then you need to not let anything fall onto the river. I landed right on the princess, I didn't need to fall past her.

Okay, finally got 12!!!!!

Here is a Midas Walkthrough for those who need some tips.

Watching the walkthrough film above, it seems like the "right" way to solve it is as you said. But there is another way!

After starting walk right one block and wait til those two are rather yellow; walk right again onto the third block in that row, then leap up and hit the block the princess stands on with your head and push over to the right so you're actually beyond the rightmost row; as you fall swipe the block to your left and then keep pushing leftward to land back on the lower surface; run left through the river before the block above you falls; leap up onto the two blocks to your left which are the first two you stood on; wait til everything else falls then walk and leap rightward to the princess.
