(Warning: This game may be quite difficult. Play at your own risk!)

Climbing up the stairway in search of revelation, a lone traveler defies a spiteful god residing at the top of the world. Unamused, the indignant deity lays down increasingly difficult laws designed to kill his unwelcome visitor as he ascends toward the moonlit skies. Can you make it to the very top and discover the secrets of this divine structure? May heaven grant you fortune.

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Perhaps the greatest game ever uploaded on here. Still have yet to beat it though. (I suck at games.)
And to clear up the confusion, Pause Ahead and this game were made by the same developers.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Decent graphics with nice music and somewhat difficult. Like it


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

havent written a review in 6 years on a game so i thought id chime in

seems to be like one of those kind of indie games where it tries to be cruelly difficult with infinite continues but im not sure if this was the first one or if cat planet! came before it.

theme and some non linearity was nice though, the main thing though is the music with godtier composing. the graphics are p decent


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Where is that goddamn 3rd secret!?! This game is rockin


Rated 5 / 5 stars

I have played this many times, and this is a masterpiece. Theres some references to Tower of Heaven in Pause Ahead. Perhaps they are connected somehow?
