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!

EPILEPSY WARNING!

Do not play this game if you're prone to epilepsy and seizures. Since the author seemed to fail at providing a warning i shall do so here.

Fun game but lost several points for not providing an epilepsy warning. Seriously man you can hurt yourself and if someone goes into a seizure from this game then both you and newgrounds will be liable. You for creating the game and not providing a warning, and newgrounds for posting the game and not having a warning.

Next time please think before pulling as tun like that.

Almost great.

I made it to Mini-Story and just stalled out. Its a good game but some of the actions required are so obnoxiously specific that it drains the fun out.

10 seconds?

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


DamianS responds:

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 :)

Bad

I really dont like this game. I did finish it and got the flashing end - rave time. But really? It sucked....

I do agree about the perfect jump thing. Its over done a LOT in games. Who really cares if you can make perfect jumps? Granted - I did it. LOL. But still.....

And basicly, you just have people running back and forth over the same small area - that got old really quick.

The music - REALLY bad. I dont care about the pause button since the entire game was like 3 mins? But, mute would have been nice.

Really easy game and really bad idea.
