Sheer awesomeness
i normally don't like super difficult games, but the characters were interesting enough to keep me going. i got a feeling of satisfaction after beating it with 850+ lives!
my only complaint is the first lvl(1,1). same with lvl 2, lvl 2-1 was alot harder than 2-2, 2-3 2-4. since yu had to get the patterns of all 3 ghost types in the first lvl and only 1 or 2 types on the others.. i literally walked through 2-2...
also, sometimes with the swinging axes, i would be safe on one pass then when the axe came back around i died.. without moving from the spot i was in, i think the axes have slightly longer range on the downswing...

The music made the game for me, timing is more fun when you have a beat:D
I wanna see more!! who's the hooded girl?

Ok, finished the game... 840~ lifes left, 5 secs between each death in lvl 1.1, thats like 2 and a half hours of dying... this is gonna take a while xD

Nevertheless this was an awesome game :D, loved the music!

Buen juego, me recordó los primeros Castlevania por su dificultad, aunque me pareció algo simple, esperaba que se fuese haciendo mucho más complejo. La cantidad de vidas es excesiva de todas maneras, tener tantas hace que uno intente muchísimas veces hasta que resulta y hace que uno piense menos los movimientos. Quizás podrías hacer un modo difícil con menos vidas o un modo hardcore con solo una. De todas formas me gustó, el estilo de 8-bit le da ese toque de consolas viejas que trae recuerdos :)

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.

Love the originality and art style :)

However, I do have an issue with the VO's and punctuation... But those are minor compared to the amount of effort and creativity involved in this game. Would love to see it on Steam ;)

My dream is for Desutori to reach Steam, but I've always wanted try to put it up on a few indie stores, if enough people like it. (Wouldn't be the same version of course, maybe an HD remix with at least 2 more worlds).
