Going to have to come back to this one when I have more time.
I climbed over a page change with no upper scene to no effect.
I fell way down left of the start & caught a ledge.
Not sure if that was a shortcut or intended.

7/8 spirits saved in 23min. Was fun.

I found a few over the top / out of bound areas.
They never helped at all.
I feel like I found everything.
But I never got an end game message.
Edge, sprint, slam, vines, +Grab.
collected a bunch of sprits.
They said I could go now, so goodbye.

I was looking for a walkthrough but all I find is "The Ascent".

To Anonymous #2 RE end-of-game message: I reached a clear ending of the game. It was just beyond the ice-cube area that lies east of the particularly-grabby area.

The "bad ending" has a lot more going on than the "good ending" imo

How do you get the "bad" ending?? Zero spirits??

I got the "bad" ending by finishing 7/8, and the "good" ending with 8/8; it's possible there are more endings, but this is what I saw

The jump-to-your-death-fall-through-two-screens-and-grab-a-ledge-by-a-finger part was a little unfair, and I'm sure most people got to it by mistake/luck as I did. I mean falling from that height to the ground kills you, but somehow you can catch yourself? Really? But overall, a good game!

if you dash down... you survive a large drop...

Took me a while to get that

I saved all of them, played 17 min. Nice short one!

I found a walkthrough (7/8 spirits): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RzD6-I9KPng

I wanted to see the end, because my browser freezed when I was near the end, and I lost progress. :-( I enjoyed the game, but I won't start it over for sure... I watched the walkthrough, but at the ice cubes I couldn't go this way, it was blocked when I was there. :-O But I had a different scene with red squares, and I had no idea, what to do with them. Can someone please tell, is the red squares were the "good" ending, and what should I have to do there?

Maybe I wait a few days and I do it again.

Here is an 8/8 walkthrough, not much difference, no red quares. :-O
