The hardest platform game in the world

HTML5 platform game

About the game

For many years, it has been my ambition to write a game that I found challenging to play. The problem is, I am unable to draw and so I decided to write a platform game that was graphically simple.

Whilst the game isn't much to look at, the gameplay is quite challenging.

Technology

The game utilises HTML5 and Javascript and is made using the awesome Construct 2.

Many of the elements of this game are inspired by classics such as Citadel, a platform game for the BBC Micro from way back in 1985. These 'old school games' have always held an interest for me because despite their limited graphics, the originality and gameplay were superb!

Ramblings

This site is receiving hits from beautiful countries such as Brazil, New Zealand and many other exotic places. It gives me inspiration to know that people from all over the world are trying out the game.
Why not challenge a friend to see who can complete levels the fastest?
I have an idea for a game that can be played on mobiles - let the fun begin...
I wonder if anyone can finish the game?

Hints

#1 - There are two coins on each level of the game
#2 - Bonus stars can be found on levels 2, 3 and 4 - can anyone find them all?
#3 - To disable the turrets on level 1, jump right from the elevating platform when it is at its topmost position.
