It was short but sweet. The game had just enough depth for it's length. I did like how each "weapon" had it's strengths and weaknesses. I personally like throwing stingers back at enemies.

You also laid enough clues around that I was never completely lost or didn't know where to go. I especially like how pressure plates are visually linked to what they effect.

I didn't like the menu system or the controls that much. If you're going to require us to use a mouse, the menu should just let us use the mouse to use/select items and mouseover items to get a better descriptions. I see that you use the arrow keys to shoot in the four directions, and you probably wanted to get to that old classic Nintendo feel, but if you have a mouse that allows you to aim and look deeper into corners, then you should of scrapped it, IMO.

Even if I wanted to just play with the arrow keys, you should eliminate the target cursor when ever I use them. Always strafing is visually unappealing and when you try to punch, it's always in the direction of the cursor.

Eh was alright i guess...
game was way to short and was boring as shit for the most part; enemies are too weak and there's no real diversity its either a blue lady bug thing or a scorpion or a bee.
Im also assuming we are supposed to be able to find 3 more "heart" pieces? however none of them are on the main track and you kind of dont need them.

Also in the castle if you've got the shotgun it shakes the screen a bit and a green border appears for a bit (dunno if anyone else is getting this), guess that can also be a positive as it makes it feel more like the old snes games.

There are some good parts to this game i guess such as the terrain and there seems to be no major bugs in the game.

Next time maybe put a few mini bosses in and remove the checkpoint heal.

So... its zelda, but much easier? The traps were hard-ish, but the enemies never touched me. The shotgun is way overpowered. And then it is way too short with not much of an ending. But nice try.

At first, I thought this said castle of the incest king. I still found this to be both enjoyable, and easy to fap to.
