(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.

Know the kid who made this game

Was just in the car coming home from cheesecake factory bro night, we were talking about indie games and one friend mentioned tower of heaven., and he piped up and said that he made it. Brought back a lot of memories of the beautiful Dave Zhang and his Cave Story fetish. Remembered planning a game with the creator "Tadakuni Amano" but then quit when the design plan changed from side scrolling beat em' up to platformer. Sadly the Jake Metchick fight em all game will never be made.
About the game, the things I like about the graphics are more due to the fact that I remember seeing Zhang make them in between doing cave story photoshop paintings. There is a lot of depth to his skills as an artist. The color scheme is fantastic in it's minimalistic approach and how well he uses the limited palette he set out for. He also has a beautiful voice.
The guy who programmed and designed the game originally is a goof. Buy his rap album Dank or Die if you get the chance.

Brilliant!

This is a great throwback in terms of the graphics and the music, but then you add this brilliant and original mechanic of increasingly difficult trials that still contain the same elements by making the elements that were already there deadly (forbidden). Very well made, and with no technical issues from what I could see. Well done!

Script

Is the script if you click left you die? There is a delay so i am guessing the script is after you move left you die, which is impressive

flashygoodness responds:

Do you mean the code that kills you when you move left? Originally, you would be smited immediately if you move left while you're on the ground, but I changed that to be more lenient due to people trying to jump left but pressing the jump button too late. So yes, there is a slight delay in the thunderbolt when you walk left on the ground.
