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.

Game or movie? Make a choice.

If you want to make a game, make a game. This weird bastard of a hybrid you've introduced here is either a movie that you have to fail at a game in order to access or a game that requires a hard reset in order to continue after a mistake. Neither possibility is remotely appealing.

Don't get me wrong, both your game and your movie are very good, but each one is so detrimental to the other that the final product is not the least bit enjoyable.

My suggestion: introduce two play modes. In the one, the character is automatically shown entering the castle and dying to some random hazard. The movie sequence then shows and everyone can have a good laugh about it. In the other, the player controls the character through the castle and has a real continue option upon defeat. The player can then progress through the castle and enjoy a conclusion to the challenge they have just overcome.

As a postscript, jumping felt very awkward. He never seemed to move as far as I would have expected him to.

hey dude

no hard feelings but I know how to fuck your game. just play it on mozilla firefox and go to configure-then deny the ability of the site to keep info from you.then,you can play as many times as you want.Oh and by the way,don't remark this anj useless review only because ''the game is moral'' or ''this guy thinks outside the box'' you see,common people say the think outside the box just to seem important,I really think with my own thought patterns,I just opened my eyes to see stuff and considre them the WAY I WANT,NOT AS THE SOCIETY WANTS ME TOO,like being an artistic asshole,ok?

I can respect the "You only have one chance and if you fuck up you go back to the start" style of gameplay up to a point.

Amnesia: The Dark Descent's Justine DLC handled this pretty well. If you died, you got booted to the desktop and had to start the game up again. Annoying, but at least you could give the game another try.

I tried reloading the browser window two or three times to see if I could start again, to no avail. And it particularly pissed me off, because I died within the first few seconds - I jumped up, got the coins, and skated all the way to the first pit as if the ground was ice.

And that's it. I can't play it anymore because of some stupid browser or programing related fuck up.

And it really likes to rub the fact that you're dead in your face, which aggrivated me even further.

I understand that you were trying to come across with some kind of message, but as a game it failed completely.
