This game lacks a way to quit and resume playing later. However, it's really quite short, so this feature isn't exactly needed.
If you manage to reach the Moon, you'll be presented with a link to a webpage where you can leave comments. There's no way to predict what will be found in other people's comments, and they may contain things you'd rather not read. Such is the nature of the internet.
For the most part, it's a quiet and fairly ordinary platformer. The arrow keys allow you to move your character around and pick up various things, while the ENTER key and SPACEBAR allow you to eat fruits you've picked up or jump into the air. Once airborne, you can fly around for a bit by hitting the SPACEBAR again. If you ever need to return Home, hold H for a moment and you'll be teleported back to the starting area (or the top of the tower if the water has risen too high).
These controls cover everything you need to navigate this doodled world as you try to find objects, such as blocks of cheese or a saltshaker, to build a climbable tower. The different types of fruit are important here, as each one has a unique effect that will help you in your task. In the meantime, the rising water level will make it increasingly difficult to find more fruit or the objects you need. You can't swim, so if your head goes below the water level you'll quickly begin to run out of air. Fortunately, instead of drowning, you'll just be teleported Home or to the top of the tower. You can also ensure the fruits stay available by taking a few moments to plant them safely above the water line.
The main drawback to this title is how short it is: it often takes less than thirty minutes to complete the tower and fix the leaky faucet. Despite this, it's a nice game for a rainy day.
It's up to you, a little bird person, to find enough objects to create a tower high enough to allow you to reach the faucet and turn it off. But, why stop at the faucet in the sky? Since the leak is plugged, the water will drain and you'll have all the time you want to explore the world looking for more objects to take you to a higher goal: the Moon!
