(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.

Simple Review

Nostalgic in the sense of classic Gameboy hues. In regard to music, perfect sounds for a game of this caliber; semi-faced paced and up beat music, depending on what stage you are one. Gameplay, great, it seems simple, but as you progress, the difficult increases.

Excellent game.

All the rules were clever, except the addition of not being able to walk left had me pulling my hair out.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars


a good idea and a nice concept of adding additional rules each level, i managed to reach lvl 8 but gave up because levels were just getting too long and hard without actually adding any thing new that is fun, you just added more ways to die. I gave this a 7 because it was fun at first but became just frustrating so i gave up. one of the major issues is the camra is too near the character so we can't see what is going on around us. Also, i would not have been put off so easily if the game looked a bit more stylish, insted of sinple blocks of pixels. Checkpoints in longer levels would also be much appreciated and i hate the timer on levels that require you to time jumps correctly, since it becomes necessary to get to that point and die the first few trys just getting used to the timing of the jump, since you don't have time to stand there and work it out.

besides all that stuff above, it was a good game, but definitely needs improving.

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!"
