GRETEL PART 2 IS OUT!! GO PLAY IT!!!

Added saving into the game, the game now auto saves so you can come back later and finish your game!

To get the Grimm Master medal you have to get all 10 deaths in ONE playthrough. You must then wait till the END of the credits.

Thanks everyone for the many kind reviews! We're hard at work on part 2...

After a long time in development, the adventure begins. This was a labor of love. Hand painted backgrounds and characters all scanned and worked up with Flash. Everything should be working alright, but if you notice any major issues please let us know and we will fix them right away. Thank you Tom for the sponsorship! It lets us keep making games like this. Special thanks also to Mike Rudolph for making such excellent music. This is part one of a three part game so stay tuned for more Gretel and Hansel!

The most amazing artwork I've seen recently...

... And what a great use.

Love the complete idea, and the gameplay is simple, yet it need some getting used to, especially the cart subsection.

Great job, can't wait for part II.

:D!!

A masterful game indeed: one I'd expect to see on the Adult Swim site or ArmorGames. Great mood and music, and it strikes me almost Tim Burton-like. The puzzles are a little hard, but that's what makes a good puzzle game.

9 Stars, +1 for the nod to the movie 'The Shining'

We anxiously await the sequel, get crackin' :P

Tricky

Very difficult. The art style made it tricky to figure out what to do with some of it. But at the same time, I'd never give it up. The art style makes it something NEW. something INTERESTING. Bravo.

Great game!!!!!!

THis was a great game, the controls were simple, the music was great, and the game wasn't extremely hard. It made you think and it was addicting. Got all the achievements about 3rd time through. I can't wait to see the next game.

Well..

I loved it. I thought the animation suited it, the gameplay was fun. I didn't find it hard, though I did have to play several times to get every death in one game (because they don't carry over). And I did find that slightly annoying.

Some bugs I did notice:
1. When you start a new game after winning (assuming you have killed hansel once already) they large clock hand is already on the floor. If you pick up the clock it will also already have the small clock hand. If you solve the puzzle before going outside the puzzle will be reset (i.e. the key changes back into the clock).

2. If you shoot the cage release while you are under it you get put over(yet behind it I guess)and can walk directly over it.

3. If you stay out too long (and this may not be a bug) you instantly find the stones. I was trying to get my 200 shots so I had left one stone ready to get and after a while on a different screen from where the stone actually was it just randomly popped up saying I had collected all of the stones.

4. I have noticed that when you start a new game after beating the game there are several places where your character appears over layers they should be behind (the well and one of the stumps off the top of my head).

That is what I can think of of the top of my head. Again very much enjoyed it (should have been able to kill the mom, and she should axe Hansel as well) I most definitely look forward to the next installment.
