There is just something missing.

Matt I have been a fan of your work since the first EBF.

But I Feel that the all personality of the previous games were never put in the
For one the witty one liners of Matt or the ability to click Nats's you know
Those things gave the EBF series charm. And without those the game felt empty.
All so the game had very little story, this is an RPG, sure a platformer RPG but that doesn't mean it can't have the story of its predecessors.

But all those aside Great addition to the series

Nice Job! And...

Matt, my man! The EBF game series is amazing, and I'm so glad you made them. Making a platformer based on the game's early events is genius. There is one thing though; I cant help felling the same track is played for the whole of a world. But thats not enough to ruin it. Great work, I plan to do a Let's Play of this soon. I would be grateful if you gave me official permission to record the game. Make sure you watch it, 'cause I feel you enjoyed the Lp of Epic Battle Fantasy 3, and I hope to know you'll be watching it! Thanks for your great work!

Very well done

I had a lot of fun playing this game. The graphics are smooth and flow nicely. I grew to love the characters and the enemies. The backgrounds and platforms are also very beautiful. I never get tired of the music, either. The game increased in difficulty very slowly, but in the last two areas, I had trouble staying alive. I was playing this casually, and I was very happy that I could find all of the treasure chests. I loved how the different items and how they change your attributes. The option whether to use magic or not was a very interesting choice in game development, and I chose not to use it once I got that item.

I can tell that quite a lot of time and work went into this project and I look forward to future projects by this developer.

You understand the curtain fire (bullet hell) mechanic really well, I'll give you that, but you're missing a lot that actually drives the platformer genre. This game is very well built, the atmosphere is nice, but the mechanics are way off. Enemy timings and behaviors are awful for both regular enemies and bosses. While it may seem like the enemies have a touch of randomness to them, this is not the case. The problem is that you telegraph what the enemies are going to do very poorly or not at all. This is pivotal to appropriate reaction time on the part of the player, otherwise they spend more time cautiously approaching enemies than actually playing the game - unless, of course, you've memorized every enemy's pattern in the game (This is what game developers do if they test they're own game and what testers do if you don't rotate your testing groups).

The platforming is overplayed. I honestly started to ask myself when I'd reach contiguous ground. I became more irate still when I found that the running trend was going to be a monster that took more than one hit on a platform large enough only for it and nothing else. Magic didn't terribly help this either, since it made sense to shoot the enemy with a fireball and have them walk off of the platform. The problem with that is that you run out of magic quickly and then in turn have no support skills.

My honest recommendation to you is to play the classics again, man. Mario, Sonic, and Mega Man. Since your gameplay style most closely resembles Mega Man Zero, I recommend playing Mega Man Zero 3 on the Gameboy Advance. Focus hard on what really makes these games work and work well.
