The second instalment in the series; it carries on from the first.

As before, it is designed to be a difficult, challenging, retro-style platformer reminiscent of the NES or SNES days, back when games were hard and finishing them was a reward in itself that not everyone could even do.

Please try to enjoy it for what it is instead of dismissing it for what it's not.

You may encounter a strange bug where the keys act 'sticky' and you move even when they're not pressed... THIS ONLY HAPPENS WITH INTERNET EXPLORER. Use another, better browser and the problem won't occur.

Nicely made game

What I played of it, it was well-put together, with the characters comments towards the tutorial posts causing a few chuckles.
Being a determinedly 'casual' gamer, I tended to get frustrated with some of the challenges very quickly; the jumping from ladder to ladder with spikes above in the tutorial nearly drove me to madness/closing the game. It's the nature of the game, but might alienate you from some potential fans.

Overall, fun to play, enough to overcome my lack of paitence/skill.

Dude that's like totally awesome and epic!

No, seriously, it's a very good and professionally made game, with great graphics and old school graphics, not to mention the excellent music. Also it's fin to play for anybody that really likes the incredibly hard old school platformers, or is looking for a real challenge between all the easy flash games.

As great as it's predecessor

Well,seeing as this is the third review I write for the game,I'll be a bit brief.
As always,you have provided us with a great nostalgic game,providing an incredible challenge,and maintaining the simple aspect of the NES/SNES era.
The music is absolutely wonderful,the level design is beautiful(it reminds of Aztec temples and tropical forests),and the characters are well fleshed out.
The intro really show us what kind of persons Arkus and Echelle are,as well as Arkus' own comments about signs and the hilarious tutorial.
The achievement system is a great addition,and now that you're incorporated it into the entire series,is just add a lot of replay value.
All in all,good luck,it's a fierce world out there.Hopefully it'll get a warmer reception here.
5/5 and favorited.
