The second game ever playable in Swahili. Dubbed in English AND Japanese. This is a turkey the size of the Titanic. Incidentally it's also playable in Turkish.

Big thanks to all voice actors and translators (especially the ones I found here at NG!).

Original music by Khuskan.


So what is the real point

So I can never enjoy this game again? Not even try and get further? Really? Why not just make a damned movie if you want to make people see and not play.

Heres where you failed...

Ok so the concept was good, only one chance to play the game. But you didnt warn anyone. I know what the title says but a popular game came out called lastman where you got one life to beat the game, if you didnt you started it all over. At the very least there should be a button to let you try again once you have seen the last scene (flowers and grass on grave and stone). What you effectively have done is made this a pile of shit. With only one chance to play, there is literally no replay value (as intended, I understand that) but with no replay value, who gives a shit? No one will recommend a game they can only play once, rather they might steal the use of their friends computer to play it out, thus when the friend tries to play it, he is denied his chance. For all of this I have given you a 0 because this just doesnt deserve to be here, its not wortht he effort. All your programming, while clever, makes this useless. A nice try though...

A Great Concept

Loved the options with languages and subtitles -- I had my japanese voice acting with english subtitles. The gameplay itself was pretty solid -- I felt like a heavier Mario. However, it was kind of mean to hide that extra-long pit at the very last level. I appreciated the gimmick, and had a good laugh every time I tried to continue. But come on now, at some point, you should let people play again! Is there a cheat I'm missing? If not, give people some warning! This reminds me a lot of "Free Will," and "You have to cut the rope." I don't know if you're responsible for either of those, but you should check them out if you're not. This game did a better job having fun with the 1 Life quirk, than Free Will did, but both are similar in spirit.

Were it not for the concept and great storytelling, I'd probably have given this a 7 -- you can get away with lackluster gameplay, but your games would be even more fantastic if you didn't. Think about it. Then again, locking people out of a game that was also awesome to play would probably piss them off. You'd probably have to come up with a new trick to pull on your audience. In any case, keep up the good work. I'll be keeping tabs on you now.
