Good but buggy

I really liked it the first time I played - the graphics are lovely. But now, every time I try and play it I can’t get to the screen to the different levels, I can only access the first chapter (it has saved my progress for that one). If I want to continue I would have to play it from the start, as the game refuses to let me swipe the chapter screens far enough to access the other chapters. It’s waste of my money which is a pity :(

***Responding to your comment - sweetie, (golly gosh, I’m so happy we know each other so well and we can address each other in this way), I have already finished the first chapter, which is why I was surprised that when I reopened the app I couldn’t access the others, as logically once you finish a chapter you should be able to access the next one. I can’t remember exactly where I got to but it was at least out of the ship and to the part that had books in tall stacks and the jars that blow you upwards. I also can only get into the first part of the first chapter, I was wrong that it had saved my progress for it.

^ ^ Hi sweetie:
Thanks for your comment and your support.
You have to pass each level then next level will be unlocked, the same logic, you have to pass all levels of first chapter, then next chapter will be unlocked. please let me know if this situation still there after you pass the levels.
You have to find a glowing circle which is for pass to next level. :)

Bug in new chapter 7-02.

When trying to run and jump right to platforms with falling stones, (soon after 3rd candle) moving and jumping together does not work, causing instant death falling down the crack. Have had no trouble with this move elsewhere in the game. Please fix !
