However, there will be obstacles that, on touch, will kill our astronaut and restart the level. behaviours on different enemies will apply differently, but in order to not spoil key aspects of the game, it will not be reveled in this guide.

About the jump mechanic, once you jump, you can't do it again before touching the top of a platform. If you fall off a platform without jumping, you can jump in the air once as explained above.
