(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.

Simply the best

Gameplay - This is probably the most (or one of them) original concept for a flash game here on Newgrounds. I'm seriously surprised at this game. The simple platforming combined with some rules that builded up. It was just so creative and so smooth, I really love the modes too. The story mode (i'm guessing that's what it's called?) was fun, and having all these new rules, I couldn't really believe that I beat it the first time :O. Anyways, the game seemed like a very delicate type of game, but with hardcore gameplay. The game had a few puzzles that were tricky to find out at first; like level 6, which turned out to be really easy...(just a HINT for everyone, think of OTHER ways to go left ;D). Some levels seemed impossible at first, but anyone can master them. The speed run mode is VERY fun and intense. I was at around 1:30 or so at level 10 and I died RIGHT at the end, so I had to retry for the speed run medal since that chopped out tons of time, and I was SO close (I'll get that medal, YOU'LL see...).
The level creator was a nice addition. It wasn't hard to figure out, and it wasn't too hard to make a single level. The game is very well programmed :D

Graphics - Now here's where I was really amazed. Graphics were simple, yet so Gameboy-like, it felt like I was playing a Gameboy game from back in the 90's :p
I think this was one of the greatest aspects of the game :)

Audio - I seriously need to get the soundtrack... The songs are so uplifting, and come from calm to fast paced, it sets the mood for the entire game :D

Overall - Probably my favorite game on Newgrounds at the moment. It reminds me much of indie games like Cave Story, not just because the music sort of reminds me of the game, it's also level 11, and the title screen. The clouds remind me of Cave Story, and that's a very very good thing :)

Thank you so much for submitting it. This game goes down in Newgrounds history for sure :)

10/10
