Who said platform games had to be nice and fair? time for a little change.

Arrow keys to move, try get through all the levels. You don't have lives, but it records how many you lose. You will lose a lot, the game is pretty hard, so try not to get too mad on the first level.

and yes, the game is possible.

Right click for the mute music option.

Borderline retarded.

I don't understand why you would make a game that you have to play through a hundred times to beat. Every time I died, it was because of some unavoidable trap that sent me back to the checkpoint over and over.

It had me thinking, "Why would anybody want to make a game that is anti-fun?"

Also, the character graphic was pretty lame. I had like a mullet or something, and every time I jumped, I kind of flailed my arms. What was up with that?

Anotha' one bites the dust...

Argh... I'm not gonna lie. My opinon on this game is biased due to my inability to pass very far. HOWEVER, this does not excuse some major platforming problems not meant to be part of this game.

I can enjoy this concept. Heck, I wasn't planning on writing a review at all. But, this game really got on my nerves. First, the annoying, repetitive music that sounds like you ripped off a Genesis Sonic game. Good grief, was I glad that it had a mute button.

Next, the game mechanics themselves? Never even got the chance to see all of, since I couldn't make it far. But oh no, not due to any degree of skill or lack thereof. The real problem came from the bugged controls.

This platformer is unfair. I can take that, it's in the title. But while "unfair" as in difficult and "unfair" as in bashing you over the head with unseen traps are one thing, "unfair" as in controls that seem to hate you every time you try to jump is pushing it way overboard. This game really pissed me off.

I get it, you're making a good game, that seems like a rip-off of I Wanna Be The Guy. It's the "kill them with every possible trap to make them play as long as possible" thing. But while that other game was tight, this had all the precision of a medical surgeon who's drunk off his ass. Besides, no matter how much gameplay there is to be had in this game, I never got to play it thanks to this! Every time I got lucky and the controls worked with me, I make it just far enough to either fail another jump and get skewered, or run into unseen territory and get killed there!

So yeah, can't give you a good score. Why? Because if I wanted to let my chance of survival be determined by blind luck, I'll play D&D. Bring out the dice, at least I can play on even after death there...
