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!

Simple and fun!
Even though this has been done more times than I can remember, it still works and is fun.
- Gameplay is top-notch, I noticed no problems with controls or anything
- Artwork, well, basic but it works
- Story nonexistent but eh, doesn't matter here
- Music is great, good choices with that
- Difficulty curve is quite nice, though I only had trouble with the last level. Took me about 10 minutes probably.
- Kind of lazy ending, but well, it fit my mood after I completed the last level
Overall I shouldn't really give this a rate this high, because of it's simplicity but, damn, it does what some games with lots more artwork and planning do not.
Improvements: I myself think this game is to demonstrate how good game mechanisms are made, so thinking that way, it's perfect.
However, could always improve artwork and perhaps put in a story.
But like I said, those don't matter here.
Simple, But Satisfying
Great game with a decent difficulty progression, but I was irritated by the fake ending. If it weren't for the llama, I would've given up. 'Nuff said.
It was good! simple, short and clear! Hope you enjoyed making it as much as I enjoyed playing it!You should experiment with other and more thing next time. The end I found very philosoficated, but it may be just my twisted mind.. !
Suprised by how much I liked it.
I'm not sure if I'm convulsing on the floor out of excitement or if I'm having an epileptic seizure.
hate the timer :\
There is no game. Trust me. DO NOT PLAY!
