Very cool. Wish I could download it.

You only need to avoid the spiky parts of obstacles, not the lines that support the spikes.

Falling does not kill you unless you fall off the screen.

These are more cheating: you can ascend straight up by clicking under your man and drawing a vertical line.

If you and a line are in the same space you will generally teleport to the nearest free space above you.

The first trick is very useful in itself. Using the second fact, if there are obstacles directly above the respawn point, you can pass through them by ascending straight up from the respawn.

Amusing game, though unbearable music that can't be turned off limits my interest.

Kind of frustrating that you can draw a line right through him, and then he's unable to move. It should always move away from the cursor, not letting you pass through him.

Lifting straight up under the guy makes many levels much easier. Rotary death!

Trying to play this with the pointer on my thinkpad doesn't work very well because I want to draw with my right hand. This means I have to cross my hands so I can operate the arrow keys with my left. Still, pretty neat.
