Developer Moon Spider announced its single player side-scrolling platformer, Harold.
Harold puts players in the role of a guardian angel tasked with guiding the title character, Harold, through a series of increasingly complicated obstacle courses. Harold will need all the help he can get

Collect all the stars in Practice mode to receive an additional boost in the race
- Challenge: play this mode to see if you can complete the perfect run!
