The second game ever playable in Swahili. Dubbed in English AND Japanese. This is a turkey the size of the Titanic. Incidentally it's also playable in Turkish.

Big thanks to all voice actors and translators (especially the ones I found here at NG!).

Original music by Khuskan.

A Great Concept

Loved the options with languages and subtitles -- I had my japanese voice acting with english subtitles. The gameplay itself was pretty solid -- I felt like a heavier Mario. However, it was kind of mean to hide that extra-long pit at the very last level. I appreciated the gimmick, and had a good laugh every time I tried to continue. But come on now, at some point, you should let people play again! Is there a cheat I'm missing? If not, give people some warning! This reminds me a lot of "Free Will," and "You have to cut the rope." I don't know if you're responsible for either of those, but you should check them out if you're not. This game did a better job having fun with the 1 Life quirk, than Free Will did, but both are similar in spirit.

Were it not for the concept and great storytelling, I'd probably have given this a 7 -- you can get away with lackluster gameplay, but your games would be even more fantastic if you didn't. Think about it. Then again, locking people out of a game that was also awesome to play would probably piss them off. You'd probably have to come up with a new trick to pull on your audience. In any case, keep up the good work. I'll be keeping tabs on you now.
