(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


the graphics, the movement, the rules system test your skills. Honestly if you haven't turned off the rules on level 11, I would never be able to finish the game. And the music ohhh myyy Goddd, it is soo amazing, I had like a pevert face because of the beautiful sounds and scales.

P.D. Will you make an ipod/iphone app of the game? that would be supermegaomegaultra awesome!!!!

flashygoodness responds:

Thank you very much. Heheh, I'd like to see a version of level 11 with the rules all enabled, actually... that would be quite interesting.

And hmm, I'd like to see that happen, but there are no plans for that at the moment. Who knows, though!! Maybe someone will approach us for porting the game to other platforms.


Rated 5 / 5 stars


This game's really great. Everything works super smooth and the end was brilliant too, with the slight use of poetry.

Only thing that was rather pointless was the rule that doesn't let you check the rules anymore, because I don't think anyone ever checks the rules, since you encounter breaking them often enough to remember.

flashygoodness responds:

Thanks! Heh I know, that rule is pretty pointless. I think they wrote that into the dialogue to just add to the character of the tower god.

Very Polished Game

This is, as my title has suggested, an extremely polished game.

The graphics are styled very well along with their intentions, and the music is astoundingly inspiring and motivated me to continue along. I never really felt too frustrated. The controls also didn't feel too sluggish for me, so the Flash performing according to the system performance must be true in that sense.

The ending seemed appropriate and wholesome, and overall, simply a polished, finished project. Ten out of ten, something I don't give often.

Pure masochism...

Worst controls I have ever seen! Controls would frequently lock up and cause me to die over and over again as soon as the level loads. Level 9 is impossible to finish due to the buggy controls. The only reason this doesn't get one star is because the music is fantastic.

flashygoodness responds:

The sticky controls are due to your computer/browser performance, not the game itself. Flash just has a problem with sticky keys in general; don't blame the game.
