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!



Rated 5 / 5 stars

Great game, especially for a first

This was fun to play throughout the whole game.

Gameplay wise the challenges in each area were very cleverly done. They properly introduced a new obstacle, then built up on each ones characteristics to create more complicate challenges. The more difficult areas were a little tricky but they never felt overwhelming. Graphics reminded my of an old Atari games. But it worked and each creature and object had their own look. The graphics along with the sound used made for a very atmospheric setting. Controls were solid and the characters movement felt right.

Just the right length and completely enjoyable.

I loved the Orpheus and Euridice imagery, I'd never had thought to try and implement it into a game. The simple pixel art was used as well as I could have thought, it felt genuinely atmospheric.

Really moving work

A little more polish and complexity, and you could be making games as emotionally interesting as Jason Rohrer, the maker of games like gravitation and passage. You had a great idea here, and I loved how you executed it. Great game.

Very well thought through

Even down to the ending I enoyed it all the way. And I got the "Don't look back" when I meet the ghost and thought of the grave etc very good concept. look forward to seeing more deep thought through games soon!
