I don't understand this game at all. The sprites are nice, it controls fine, but... there's nothing to do, as far as I can see. Maybe I'm stupid, but every route I've tried is just a dead end, and there only seems to be one way to go since it seems to be impossible to make a lot of what I assume to be supposedly-doable jumps, since the character just doesn't go far or high enough. I end up in the same area inevitably no matter where I go, with no way back up. No "crystal slimes" to be found. I want to like this, but... am I playing it wrong or is this not finished?
Tigris & Euphelia
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
Once upon a time, an explorer met a monster girl named Tigris. Tigris was hungry and asked the explorer to go fetch some crystal slimes for her to eat. The problem is, the ruin where the slims live is very confusing...
If you can find all three slimes she'll be very happy indeed.

For Windows or OSX just download the zip and you should be good to go. On other platforms you will need Love2D to run the game.
Controls: WASD to move/jump, Z to jump, X to attack slimes. If you are on a non-US keyboard, keys in the WASD positions should work, let us know if they don't.

It is a very short game, but if you don't see a "Thanks for Playing" message you haven't seen everything.
The stage layout is designed to trick you, so try jumping in directions you hadn't considered.
You should also be able to get back to the start from any point in the game - if you're stuck, could you send me a screenshot? If it's a bug I can try to fix it.
Thanks for the reply! I opened the game again and yep, hadn't considered it was one of THOSE games. The walls are betrayers. Still, a clearer explanation of that might have been nice. Although I AM DEFINITELY jumping higher this time, along with hearing the jumping sound effect, neither of which I was getting last time. I couldn't have gotten back up from some of the lower screens otherwise, and trust me I tried for ages. I don't know why I'm suddenly jumping twice as high as my first playthrough.
