(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

Everybody said the music was awesome...

at they were RIGHT!! Wow, those are some crazy 8bit tracks you have for the stages! WELL DONE!

I actually loved the difficulty factor, even though it was sometimes it was frustrating, it didn't seem like it was frustrating to the point were it was unfair. This game is definitely trial and error, but I'm glad there weren't like random things that would pop out and kill you (*cough* Megaman *cough*). The rules were definitely a good idea to amp the difficulty level.

Plus great indie game ending you have there! I'm glad I didn't just play all that for a "you reached the top! great job! GAME OVER!"

In all that is holy...

I have a love-hate relationship with this game. I love how challenging and 'legit' this game is, but I hate how challenging and evil this game is. Honestly, I never want to stop playing because of how fun this is - but I need to stop playing before I break something out of rage.

I have to say that the music reminded me of those DS/Gameboy/arcade games that I've played so often when I was younger and even today.

I hate you...

3+ hours of my life spent trying to get that Speed Run medal. D: But, it was worth it. Great game. I loved every aspect of it. After 10 or so deaths, I finally figured out what to do after the "No Walk Left" rule and went "Oooooooh". Lol. The story I liked also. The story I don't find as simple as Man defying God. I believe that it is more as Man and God co exist together. Throughout the game, there were butterflies floating around, and when you meet with God, God is one of those butterflies. When the Tower is destroyed, colour comes to the world and everything seems at peace. I think this resembles a time where Man and Religion can co-exist, and it would be a beautiful world. Maybe I'm over analyzing this and it is as simple as Man defying God. I'll stick with my interpretation though.

And I made my own custom level also. Have fun with it. ^^ I enjoyed making it.
