Well, I think this is pretty nice, for a series of reasons.

First of all, most notably, very well made graphics and music, they really create an involving atmosphere. If the game tried to be spooky, it only went halfway through, because everything feels too safe, but other than that, I quite like it. It's like a mix between a horror story and a high fantasy story. I actually liked the sprite scene, but maybe that's just me.

As for the gameplay, I like games where you have a free roaming range to explore and discover secrets, so I enjoyed collecting the sprite droppings, and I also enjoyed roaming through the cave. There are problems, though. The only situation where you really need to problem solve in the entire game is when you have to get a wire to hook up the elevator, and the rest of the game consisted in searching, and only searching. That is, of course, except for the boss battle. I think the boss battle was too short and unchallenging, but its ending was interesting, and a bit mysterious, which is kind of cool.

The game is not very challenging at all, since all sprite droppings are easy to find, it's impossible to die and the game is really too short to build up much tension. So, really, the challenge, the lack of variation and the short length are the three things this game lacks.

The story, like I said before, seems to be a mix between a horror story and a high fantasy story. I liked it. It was never too scary, but it was always at least a bit involving. The voice acting was sub-par, but I didn't mind it as much as you'd think a player would.

Overall, in spite of all its flaws, I enjoyed the game.

This is some of the most atrocious dialogue and voice acting I've ever heard. It's also extremely short and presents no challenge or urge to explore the area. However, the story was different and the graphics were nicely done so I gave it a 2.

To really make the game frightening you have to be able to die. After figuring out that my character was immortal I basically just moved around with impunity. Monster hit me? Eh, who gives a shit, not going to do anything to me because I got plot armor.

If making a scary game was not the intention, then what you're left with is a game that's got rather plodding gameplay. I mean, what is fun about walking around a map trying to little glowing lights in plain view? There's no learning curve to any of the essential tasks at all... everything is idiot proof (reiterated by the fact you can't die). So, basically you just wander around aimlessly until you find what you need.

The only reason I'm giving this 2.5 stars is because I think there was potential here and it was at least engaging enough to make me complete the game.

That said, wouldn't recommend this to anyone that isn't bored.

I loved the game had a crazy but good plot voices were ok but the only problem is I went all over the cave like 8 times and couldn't find the last sprite dropping to unlock the final bonus feature
