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.

I can respect the "You only have one chance and if you fuck up you go back to the start" style of gameplay up to a point.

Amnesia: The Dark Descent's Justine DLC handled this pretty well. If you died, you got booted to the desktop and had to start the game up again. Annoying, but at least you could give the game another try.

I tried reloading the browser window two or three times to see if I could start again, to no avail. And it particularly pissed me off, because I died within the first few seconds - I jumped up, got the coins, and skated all the way to the first pit as if the ground was ice.

And that's it. I can't play it anymore because of some stupid browser or programing related fuck up.

And it really likes to rub the fact that you're dead in your face, which aggrivated me even further.

I understand that you were trying to come across with some kind of message, but as a game it failed completely.

a warning couldve been in its place...

i thought the game was would last, but u had no extra lives or continues. not being able to play again is just fuckin stupid.

i just played like normal and died, if i wouldve known you couldnt die, i wouldve tried harder and made a win instead of fail :/

The fucking keys locked.

The damn keys locked and I couldn't do anything, it just jumped and ran to the side on its own while I died.
