Commerical talk:
Massive Action platformer following in the footsteps of giants like Super Meat Boy or N+, spanning 45 levels across 3 unique worlds. Features: final boss, high scores, original soundtrack and a jetpack!

SkullFace, has been in the works for about 7 months and began almost a year before that! So much care and play-testing has gone into every level and nuance in this game, i hope you enjoy the experience. A challenging and rewarding adventure with original soundtrack by Adam Dishongh, that ends with a climactic showdown.

Real talk:
Woah, this is my biggest game to date and has taken a lot of work, i put my heart and soul into this thing. It started a long time back with a programmer who later moved to San Fransisco and work on the project, so i took the art assets redesigned the game a bit, and learned to program it myself in Stencyl Engine. Its largely inspired by SuperMeatBoy, N+ and Jumper.. i loved those games, the new wave of action platformer and so i just really wanted to make one. The game is about constant learning and the feeling of achievement when you beat a level, only to be met with a new challenge and so new obstacles are introduced every few levels across the entire game to keep it fresh. The main focus is on smooth movement and the under flow of rolling/jumping/jetpackin g.. the first time i made a boss battle as well, and the most play-tested and tweaked a game. been wanting to make a for ages, and i think something a lot of indie devs want to try.. so i hope i did it justice and to be honest this project was really fucking challenging from start to finish, and also was a financial failure as well, but i hope it is well received and the effort that went into it shines through. I really underestimated how difficult it would be to program the whole game myself as well as do the art/design/animation.. but despite wanting to quit several times during development and many long nights, i stuck with it and am super proud. the first time commissioned a soundtrack as well, and i think the music is great and really matches the gameplay. looking forward to feedback about the game and how it will be received by the players

I love this game. Skullface is a 2d platformer that is very similar to Super Mario Bros. and is very addicting. the art style of this game looks amazing. the controls also feel great but if you don't like them then you can always change them. the soundtrack sounds awesome and suits the game's theme perfectly. this game comes with 15 levels and gets progressively gets harder as you play. online interaction are just for sharing fastest time limits on how fast you have beaten a level or a chapter. I have to say I really enjoyed this game and it is very fun. FINAL VERDICT: 5/5

I loved this game, its one of the few I've played to 100% completion, all gold on every level. The controls felt awesome, mastering the roll and jetpack was fun instead of annoying, and while the game was difficult it felt that way due to good stage design rather than unfair stage design. I like the music, it was very fitting. The boss fight at the end was awesome, I really felt victorious when I won. Thanks for the amazing game, please continue doing what you do!

very nice game, though the controls start making me really angry. not only does it seem that only two keys work at a time (can't use the jetpack while jumping to the left/right) -- i find it very confusing, unusual, counter-intuitive that you need to push left to make a wallie to the right.
