Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

I heard good things about this game, but never got around to playing it until recently. I was initially hesitant because it was yet another game with retro pixel graphics and good music, but I was pleasantly surprised to find a deep adventure game with a good balance gameplay and story. It’s inspired by Legend of Zelda and Cave Story and it shows, in all the good ways. The worldbuilding is lush and the ambiance of the different worlds is wonderful.

Not perfect, though. There were a few times where I got frustrated at being unable to solve certain jump puzzles, there are a few things I feel are unbalanced, and don’t even think about trying to 100% it without a guide. But it’s still a fantastic game and I’m quite surprised it’s not on Steam Greenlight. I’d definitely throw money at this, even if it wasn’t on sale.

Definitely looking forward to a sequel!

I really loved the game, the ending was crazy hard, and I wanted to punch the person that designed the ladder arrow jump puzzle. But all in all I really enjoyed playing it. I will be waiting for the sequel.

I love this game because the story isn't linear as you have to run back and forth a bunch if you want to get everything, the animation is as beautiful as a pixelated game can be, the bosses are challenging but not impossible, and the story itself is interesting.

My only grievance is that it is very hard to get coins once you complete a task, and monsters drop a coin for every 5 you kill [rough estimate], and maybe if you're lucky you get 5 coins. Also, this isn't that important but what has been bugging me throughout the game is that as you're running along you randomly slow down, and this includes jumping as well. The variable speeds and jumps leave me worrying that I won't make the next leap, and at times annoyed that my heroine is slugging along while I have to get somewhere [even with speed boosts].

Again, the small things mentioned above aren't game breaking and I still enjoy it immensely. I'm actually giddy to get to play it!

Thank you Quells, cruiseb, MarshmallowPirate, and sillythewilly for making this and letting us play it!
