Hey Newgrounds! This is my first flash game and first submission here - it's been on Kongregate for the last week.

Don't Look Back is a game about fantasy. Just to warn you, it can be quite tricky in places... I hope you enjoy it!

Loved it

first what caught my attention was the fact that it was pixelated
very well done job at recreating the classic atari look

when i started playing i though... "hmm this seems pretty easy"
then it got progressively harder until the point when it was downright irritating
but i decided to keep going after the massive ammounts of retries.
the game is outright unforgiving for making a tiny mistake, but i was patient

i finally beat the final boss thinking "Yes I won"
after reaching the soul of my dead wife and having her walk after me without turning back i realized the entire thing is based on Dante's Inferno.

I tried completing the gruesome task of returning back to where i started thinking im going to have a different outcome

When i finaly get there i go "WTF!?"
I was pretty disappointed, but i still liked the game because it brought emotion into me. And that's rare these days.

Nice man.

Didn't finish the whole game, but I gotta say, what I experienced of it was kind of chilling. I liked it quite a bit actually.

Great

the game is a platformer that challenges the player with not only puzzles but also combat. definitly one of my favorites.

My interpretation of the Game is...

Loosing someone is incredibly hard, and you feel like you can fight through hell & challenge the odds, feel like a superman that if you get hurt you can just regenerate and try again to save that persons soul. Bring them back to life.
You can even play out what all is going to happen and how you're going to win but you have to realize that it is but a dream. Nothing more.
But the obsession of finding a way (or different ways) to do that is unhealthy and that person has to accept the fact that the loved one is gone.
It's hard but sometimes to move ahead, you can't look back or you'll be thrown into a vicious cycle of depression, remembering and trying again to look for a way to save their soul.
Beautiful game.
It went in my favourites for sure.
