Don't Look Back

Hey Newgrounds! This is my first flash game and first submission here - it's been on Kongregate for the last week.

Don't Look Back is a game about fantasy. Just to warn you, it can be quite tricky in places... I hope you enjoy it!

Although the game is simple, it has a lot of symbolism which makes the story quite literal, what i don't like about the game is A. the ropes, and B. lack of anything, you just get a gun and shoot to kill, the whole don't look back part only has its importance the second half of the game, now if you were to speedrun this, go ahead, its not like you couldn't. But anyways back to the point, the game is fine, but there isn't anything more, sure you cant look back, ok? Get your dead significant other from hell or something, ok? Destroy the Porn is the same concept but different flavor, Destroy the Porn has you shooting demons to get back to your house to destroy your immense stash of porn back home after you die, the reason why that one is arguably better is because in that one you have substance, you have dialogue, motive. Here the simplicity makes the game crack under itself since the symbolism has to be extremely obvious to even understand whats going on.

Man I don't even know how old I was when I first played this. Great game, could never beat it as a kid, but now I can proudly say I've beaten it!

Would have been cooler if you killed your past self at the end but I get why they didn't do that.

this is so good it made it on cool math games! well done! also boss too hard E

that ending tho lol
