Really..

I love this game, it's a shame it's so short, but nonetheless it's meaningful. The at & music fits the game very nicely but I have to say.. I wish ending wasn't so abrupt. Well done.

Nice game although a little tedious.

Although the game had a few tedious aspects towards it considering having to start back at the start of the area whenever I messed up with a jump or with the fire later on, I enjoyed playing this game because it held good meaning. I was disappointed with the abrupt ending though.

Good, but...

I'll agree with what has been said before. It's a great game, and I do appreciate the simple type of kinda storyish-based flash game. However, if that was the goal, I think the game was indeed too frustrating. The lack of checkpoints was annoying, of course, but I was more irked by the constant sound of him transforming / dying. That explody sound began to annoy the hell out of me. Not that platforming is bad, but honestly, I felt it detracted from the "story" (I don't know why everyone seems to think that this game had a true story). I also found it odd that the puzzle aspects at the beginning and the more straight platforming at the end weren't connected better. The gameplay jump stylistically was really sudden.

Overall, I liked the game. I would have preferred the game to be longer, because I felt that the story or the message or lesson just left way too much unsaid and unexplored. The music was good, but again that annoying sound began to grate after a while.

I love it.

The poem and storyline is beautiful, the art and music is amazing, and fits very well with the game...
But it could be a tad longer.
