I made this in a day and half as a challenge and design exercise for myself. I basically wanted to take metroidvanias and distill them to their purest form.

I'm posting it here just to see what others think, so please let me know!

10 seconds?

after time runs out i only get 10 seconds to do each level witch made it impossible to beat

I've personally never seen this bug. Send me a message on how you managed to make it appear, because I'd like to get rid of it. I can't manage to reproduce it :/

Thanks :)

unbelievable!

I wish you would wait a year to release another game if this is what a day and a half gets us. if this took longer i would have criticized how short it was only because i would hve been angry for more.

I've never worked more than a week on something. I have the attention-span of a rodent.
