Okay. Five simple and classic games glued together. Some even working well.

Wrong case for filenames.

I had trouble running the game because the files were not found: e.g. the game looks for slide__001.png but the file is Slide__001.png.
Even when I fixed that, I got an AttributeError when playing the game.

Neat, I like how you had a variety of types of gameplay. None of the minigames was very challenging on its own, but the fact that it kept changing meant that the game stayed interesting.

Cute and colorful music and graphics. They were a good choice and you brought the together well. As a "bunch of newbies" I think you did rather well, all around. I love that it is 100% Python+pygame - I am a purist. Kudos. :)

I expect you know there is a lot of room for improvement. Don't take this feedback too hard, it is meant to help. Things I wished for while playing:
- Minigame 1 needed better controls. It was very hard to control the hero which got frustrating really quick. A way to jump low and high would have been very welcome, so I could at least get under the birds with some skill while being forced jump over the water; it's not fun being forced to sacrifice a life over and over through no fault of one's own.
- Minigame 2, the instructions flashed way to fast to read any of it. I would have liked some animation for the tiles (lerp, or teleport special effect or something to liven it up) and sound effects for game actions and results.
- Minigame 3 seemed way too easy, except that I couldn't find two of the treasures. Then I accidentally hit the "q" key, and killed the game. I had to start over at level 1. I could not beat level 1 this time, and finally I gave up in frustration. I wish I could have played the whole thing.

Lastly, I'm very glad to see some new people joining the week of fun. You finished your project and that is quite an accomplishment that "newbies" can be proud of, kudos! Hopefully you can use the feedback to solve the player problems that make the difference between an average game and a great game. There are plenty of ways to improve on all of it. Every Pyweek is a learning experience, and the pygame community enjoys helping (Discord, IRC, and web site). I look forward to seeing what you can do next time.

Does this game had been tested ? It's clear gameplay doesn't work and should have been refiled.

Also, it's strange but the game shows their are multiple levels but ends at the end of the first one.

the jumps are quite large, I found it difficult to control my movement and did not get very far

I was very good at catching birds.. needed a couple of tries to get through the first stage.

I'm very bad at slider puzzles, so I gave it a shot, but gave up after a couple of minutes...

I would've liked to also move backwards in the first level...

Good effort!

Hey thats cool, I came for one game but then I got four! I like how all the mini games tied together with the same theme, very nice ... and that calypso beat was super addictive, I couldn't help but feel happy while playing :)
