Note: This is the official release to Newgrounds of the Game stolen a few days ago by someone pretending to be me :( , if you've already played it, please vote how you liked it, though you should now play it with it's proper aspect ratio, it's much better :D

The idea behind this game was to push how large of a single Movieclip I could make each level, and in the process pay tribute to my absolute favourite game on the PS2, Shadow of the Colossus, which hopefully will be seeing an HD re-release on PS3 soon!

Play as a mysterious Pale Man of the North in a quest to rid the Kingdom of a most unusual plague, and in the process win the throne to the empire!

I hope you enjoy this little cinematic style game, I've really tried to squeeze the atmosphere in. Featuring music from Duncan Fenn of The Red Swan Hotel,which you should defintely check out in the link to the side and the as usual brilliant http://www.Incompetch.com

My take:

In my opinion, the story in this was a bit lacking. It felt a bit too cliche and the ending was a bit too close to Shadow of the Colossus. Yes I know this is a tribute, but I the ending honestly did not do it for me.
As far as game play goes, this game is a solid A. Fantastic adaptation of Shadow of the Colossus. It was very fun to play and I found the third monster quite difficult. However, I do have to agree with others that the jumping is a bit buggy. But, besides that the gameplay was very enjoyable.
The music for the menu, first, and third monster were fantastic, but the music for the cut scenes did not fit. Also, the music for the 2nd monster reminded me of Pokemon, or even Runescape for that matter. It just didn't fit compared to the rest of the tunes.
Anyway, despite the obvious jumping flaws this was a solid and fun game. A bit quick I might add, but fun none the less.
8/10

Not great.

Very apparent lack of checkpoints, the jumping animation is ridiculous, not visually pleasing, climbing is slow and boring (also no diagonal movement), water is practically useless (character has virtually no buoyancy and can't swim), very little interactivity, no immediate threats or enemies (which would make it far more entertaining). It's basically terrible Prince of Persia with a sword that he doesn't use. I give you three for effort and somewhat for "story".

Awesome

I completely loved the game. Finally something innovating and interesting. I loved the gameplay and the music, specially the one from the second chapter. The idea is awesome, I was completely annoyed by the fact of understanding I was crawling on a gigantic monster, and it was great to be shown the monster when beating it, it makes you understand where were you moving around during the stage.

I liked the fact that it's too not long, so you don't get tired of it. If instead of just three chapters there had been ten, I would had surely quitted before beating it.

Also it's remarkable the fact of having a simple story and some "thinking" phrases during it. That kind of details are the one that makes the game a little "deeper" than common games.

Some details where I would work on that made me stay away from the 10 rate were some the graphics, and some minor failures at some plataforms links that made me fall, and just shitty stuff.

But anyway, it's great.

I'm looking forward for seeing more of this later.
