Rated 5 / 5 stars

A spectacular game! All the features you mentioned were clearly noticeable but for a game with such atmosphere the music was a little too happy in my opinion. Other then that it was astounding, I liked the art style, the gameplay and even the music was great it just did´t fit right. Keep up the great work and please make more of these.

Pretty neat little game. The music, though, is atrocious.
the gameplay was a little choppy at times and the controls seemed somewhat unresponsive, or maybe slow to react. Overall, though, I did like it and could see , with improvements, a sequel becoming a favorite.

Slow? You do realized that game runs at 60fps, right?
