Will you manage to collect ALL 12 CRYSTAL SHARDS OR DIE AN AWFUL DEATH?
Enter Desutori, a side-scrolling game about a unlikely Hero and the Goddess who travel far and wide in search of the ultimate power. The Cosmic Shards.
Special thanks to
TheBackAlleys Forums for the support,
Dilly, Fefe and GhostingFish for the help.
It's cute, got 2 shards, then had died over 100 times... this is not a game for the faint of heart aka the most patient people on the entire planet. Suffice to say, only 0.5% can play this game without quitting really quick... and I'm among sadly, a minority who won't rate this game 0-2 stars. If this game ever reaches the masses, it will be a disaster...
If it reaches the masses, imagine the heart attacks!
Nonetheless, the story is up on YouTube if you're interested!
I have to say, this was really challenging -- a bit too challenging. Everything else was pretty fine. I was lucky enough to beat the game with about 200 lives lost, but the difficulty level needs some toning down a bit. Majority of the extra lives I lost were from Level 2-1, lol.
That's why there's a Medal for it. Glad you liked it.
Has the same problem too many "hardcore" games have: mistakes the need for pixel perfect movement and brutal memorization for skilled play. I gave up after the third level because I just could not puzzle out the proper timing to proceed.
But I did focus on Pixel Perfect Movement and Brutal Memorization. It's all patterns.
For ear rape put on headphones and turn volume up to max when you reach the boss. EPICCCCC GAMEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
In my opinion the last level was easier than the first two, it probably should have been in the order: Third, First, Second instead.
The voice work was very screechy and unpleasant though, it kind of hurt my ears. Especially during the death scene :<
