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!

Went to hell and back

Great game!
I'm a huge fan of "pixel games" but that's not the only reason I liked it.
I could really feel the sorrow hanging in the air and the determination with which the guy was going to bring her back.
Also, I liked the unlimited lives feature. It made it easier to experience the story. The bosses weren't easy but still took some figuring out. And finally, the red tone, the rain and sounds made the game alive.
Nicely done!

Very nice.

It was very well made, although the last boss ( the one with two disappearing platforms) was either too hard or too easy. the hard way was killing the monsters waiting for the platforms, the easy way was just stnading on the top platform, get two hits in, jumpo on bottom one, jump on top again, get 2 more hits in , repeat. other than that very nice game.

This was so good!

Think if companies who made Atari games made more games like this, do you thinkg it would of collapsed? With so few details and technically only one color(use varying tones of red) and a very tricky play mechanic, you made a great game. I also like how the first part is most 'action' + 'platforming" then you make a big change up with "puzzle"+"platforming". Another thing I liked was the ending...I was expecting one thing(well, several actually, but i wont say anything cause I dont want to spoil the game)and it went a completely differnt route. This is definetly a gem of a game on this site! I look foward to more! You definetly set a high standard for yourself considering, as you say, this is your first flash game!

Concept is decent

The game concept was pretty good. I loved how it started and retro type pixel action is one of my favorites in such type games. Well we saw a lot lately, but anyway. Why did I gave 5? Because of fucking hardness. I didn't even finished the game (I wanted though). So it's the big minus, you could've added difficulty levels or something...
Anyway, for starters it was fun, but later - just pain in the ass.

This game was beautiful. The story was very well thought out, and the puzzles took a few tries to get done, which was nice. I think you should really look in to uploading "Pathways." I think people would really enjoy that game.
