The story is fine and the gameplay seems simple enough but jesus the gold trials, grapple and no death challenges really show how terrible and buggy the platforming truly is

I feel like I need this game needs a sequel purely to fully push the limits of its gameplay. Like the gameplay is really good but it never pushes itself to higher standards like other platformers do. And I get that this is mean't to be more story focused but its so basic and simplistic. Like anyone could've written this!
So its disappointing that we didn't get anything more here but I can't say I hated my experience. I just wished this game was more ambitious.

O jogo do Goularte? Um fangame do Julio verne? Não, essa é a histporia sobre meu tio, uma história curta, uma história simples, mas uma história que vale ser jogada, muito pela sua mecânica divertida de gancho, pela liberdade que o game transmite. Muito simples, por vezes repetitivo, e alguns puzzles são insuportáveis, fiquei encalhado em alguns (maldita fase do moinho de vento), mas assim acho que vale a pena ser jogado, qualé da umas 2 horas de gameplay tu consegue.
