Some blue enemies from Belle Boomerang! Which one would you spare? This color palette is probably my favorite in the game, as evident from my profile picture :)


Jump on these sewn friends to reach greater heights! I was really happy with the feeling of "weight" in their movement. I'm considering a sound effect when landing on them. Any thoughts?
