Tips & Tricks
Jump: you’re stranded in a low gravity planet, but you still have some control on how high you can jump.
Health: keep an eye on your health meter. The items that recover your health are scarce, use them only when you’re in need.
Ray Gun: this is a powerful weapon, but once fired, it will need time to recharge. Choose your targets wisely!
There’s a map of the game and you can watch a walk-through (spoilers! both links courtesy of Pavero).

If you don’t have the hardware, you can still play it in an emulator.
