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!

Not too bad...
It was a decent game... My only problem is that the guy moves ridiculously slow... On the level ignore, the timer runs out as I am jumping over the key everytime... Maybe it's a problem with my PC; I don't know... Other than that, it was a good game...
I'm working on fixing it now. It was the way the timer counts down, for some reason some computers count quicker than others.
I would have dispensed that D:
by the other reviews, it looks like you couldn't fool many with "the end" :D
but it's a nice game
a bit short and a little bit limited but it's ok
Really cool and fun little game. I enjoyed. Although I think that giving a false ending was a bad idea. Still awesome.
This really was a distillation of the metroidvania concept, and it was surprisingly playable. I think there's just something odd about this type of game that makes it enjoyable to people, even when backtracking through areas is far more laborious than it was here. You even included a fake ending like the most recent Castlevania 2d games. Add a "new game +" mode and it'd be totally perfect. lol
Seriously, for safety reasons
You need to warn people that are susceptible to seizures that there is something like that at the end. You don't anybody getting hurt because of a game you made. Other than that, not bad.
