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!

An end I would not accept,
so I fled to the firey depth
through man and mirth i fought
but it turned out to be for naught
for as I returned with my love in tow
I felt a pain I thought I would not know
A sight so harsh, I wished to be blind
as she had indeed left me behind.

Figured that fit.
nice game though I kinda wonder why he imagined her in hell of all places.

Can't think of how this could be improved. Nice little story, I love the Orphaeus/Euridice that was going on.

Great game, and challenging. I already heard about the Greek tale about Orpheus and Eurydice, but didn't remember the names (thanks allah225 for remembering it to me). I just though it was strange to use a pistol instead of a lyre, like in the tale.

I know you were based in the story that allah225 told, because there are lots of coincidences. First, Orpheus is crying for Eurydice's death, so he decides to bring her back. So he goes to the Underworld and beats Cerbero (guardian of the Underworld, who is a dog with three heads... where are the other two, by the way?), the he starts killing demons from the hell, until he reaches Hades (the final boss), but there is a condition: after he returns her girlfriend back he mustn't look at her until they both reach the upper world. So, as Orpheus, you must resist that tentation (which is really complicated, with all those obstacles...) and don't look at her until they reach the grave. I don't understand why do they dissapear at the end, that just doesn't look like the Greek tale I heard :S
