You are one of few survivors in a world destroyed by man made pollution. You're doing your best to survive with your daughter in the little cave you call home - unaware that the nightmare is about to get much worse...

Move with the arrow keys. Jump with A. Perform attacks with S. Throw grenades with D. Release energy blasts with F. Interact with the Space bar.

There is a walkthrough built in to the game. Just click the '?' in the bottom right menu whenever you get stuck!



Rated 5 / 5 stars

A game friendly to the player: plenty of save stations and a hint section how to beat bosses (have to admit, I used this, shame on me!) and what to do next. Some hours of fun.

If you liked this game, you will also like Diamond Hollow part 2.

This is, simply put, on of the best games on newgrounds. It has been a long time since I've actually logged on to new grounds, but I felt that I had to after playing this game. The graphics and soundtrack bring a lot of nostalgia, which is wonderful with how busy my life has been as of late, and even though I have been gaming for nearly my entire life, this is one of the few games I enjoyed with more than a passing interest. The depressing undertones and somber music added to the effect the game had. Thank you for making this game. I played the entire game in one sitdown, and looked up to see an hour and a half had gone by.

Is it me or does the rose in the preview look like the forever alone guy?

I loved it! The mechanics and controls were polished, and the atmosphere was great. The use of tone and color palette in the retro setting was brilliant, although the dirt was an eyesore (perhaps that was the intention?). I think that the darker tone was successful without being needlessly depressing or sacrificing the retro homage.
Music is fabulous, kudos to Calamaistr for a somber 8-bit soundtrack, which is no minor feat.
The game mechanics were quite nice
Cool little secret area, although I was hoping I would get something out of it other than a few lines. This is the kind of game I would have liked as a kid too, and my sis enjoyed it.
The built-in walkthrough was useful and informative in a type of game where getting stuck often causes frustration.
My only real gripe would be that I didn't get to use the grenades as weapons more than once and even then it was optional with no reward. In the same vein, each fight or puzzle only had one solution. I would have liked if I could use the wave blast to hit the bridge switch or the last boss.
Also, I felt that the consequences of my actions weren't clarified sufficiently in the ending, merely implied. Just a few more lines would have pulled this off.
Altogether a wonderful piece and a worthwhile use of my time. Good job.
