I love the game so far, but i have a simple Quality of Life idea, that will make a big improvement.
When you are playing and you press the menu button, go to the stats menu. The first page you see should be for the current world/place you are. I hate being on world 3 for example and have to scroll through 3 pages each time i want to see how far i am in a world.
When you click on the menu stat screen, you almost always want to see the stat for the current world. If i remember correctly, Banjo Kazooie/Tooie did the same?
