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!

WASD or Arrows - Move & Jump

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.

Hey! great game!

You should make a metroidvania, maybe like snailiad. I love this type of game and you can make one. i loved this one!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

the design is impeccably minimalist

The learning curve is a perfectly pitched study of learning curves.
The graphics and movement are perfectly efficient and responsive.
The interpretations of classic layouts are canny and accurate.
The level crosscrosscross is clearly impossible, god damn it.
