Looks good  :)

Although some might get motion sickness.  The camera really shouldn't be jumping about every single jump.

Camera improved a lot already but what do you suggest? Slower up and down maybe?

Nice concept! Looks like it could be pretty fun!

I hadn't noticed the camera (Camera's never bother me in games for some reason)
I guess it's too jerky from being locked on the robot? x.X;

Maybe try "Snapping" or a larger "camera window" ?

Looks nice, we'll done!

A bit sad that there are so few who use Monkey 2 because it is not a bad language. I liked it very much as well.

Read the link Dwapook posted  :)

Basically use a window around the player, and only scroll when the player hits that invisible window.

Or move the camera only when the player lands on a platform.
Windows 10, 64-bit, 16Gb RAM, CPU Intel i5, 3.2 GHz, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 (2Gb).
