(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.

Hey, some ideas for an extra thing for this game

Man, there should be another list of in-game achievements for stupid deaths. Here's some names and ways of achievements for deaths you could put in.

Forgetful Moron --- Died on stage 1 running out of time = 1 point
How did I fall for that? --- Died on stage 2 by falling onto spikes = 1 point
Whoops --- Died on stage 3 by jumping into the first spike = 1 point
Adventurer --- Died on stage 6 for looking beyond the exit --- 1 point
Enjoying the ride --- Died on stage 7 by waiting till the first side block = 1 point
Rocks aren't living right? --- Died on stage 8 to the first living thing = 1 point
Always be ready --- Died on stage 9 to the very beginning spike = 1 point
Don't forget to jump --- Died on stage 9 by walking left when next to exit = 1 point
*Facepalm* --- Died on stage 10 over 10 times = 1 point
So close, yet so far --- Died on stage 11 by falling off the last platform = 2 points
SCREW YOUR RULES --- Die to every rule the stage it was introduced = 1 point
Masochism --- Died over 100 times upon completion = 5 points
Man of Pain --- All death achievements achieved

Was thinking of these while playing the game running into stupid death, specifically for me,
*facepalm*, Don't forget to jump, Always be ready, Whoops, masochism, and enjoying the ride.

Just a thought guys. Sorry for wasting quite a bit of space.

I would love add more achievements if I could, but that's actually not up to me... Thanks for the suggestions though. :)

Game is pretty nice.

Whew I haven't played something this retro/nice on newgrounds for a while now, then again I haven't been on in a while...

Anyhow, The game was okay, and had part of the sense of difficulty games before had, although games before would have been slightly more dickish and wouldn't give you instructions, but I concede.

Music I believe was AWESOME, exciting enough for me to pump me up enough to start playing.

Final level actually screwed me over a couple of times, so that already warrants a high rating
a 9/10, GJ.

btw, to ReiReiKon's level, eh the final level was harder then that I thought.

painfully good

Short, hard, and fun. But if you get to the door with grass underneath save your self about 30 deaths and take the door on the right.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

As far as difficulty goes....

it ain't got shit on many of the Nes and Snes games I used to play, still fun as hell though!

A lot of fun - Incredible music, spot-on nostalgic gameboy graphics. A few more levels and I could definitely see this on XBLIG or something akin to it.
