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!

I like it.

Simple, well thought out, and addictive...too bad it's a little too short.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

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.

It's fun.

4/5, 8/10

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.

Great job!

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.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

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.
