Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Absolutely enjoyable.

I loved it, actually. It had a unique puzzle/platforming integration which I've yet to see executed so adequately. Absolutely give this game a try.
It was fun, and captivating. The role is a man attempting (and quite often succeeding) to escape from his past. With a definitive character development and ending. One of my new favorites.
Obrum put it about right. Just brilliant.

- Enjoy! Candyman out.

Well done!

I very much enjoyed this game. It has a wonderful balance of ease to difficulty, it is intuitive, and deeply thought-provoking. One of Coolio-Niatio's best, in my opinion.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

my favourite game of its kind

ive finished this game about 3 times and i keep coming back for more. perfect music, great topic. i dont know why but i keep playing this game when im a bit down. i have the same problems with my past as are in the game so i think the fact that i can relate helps out a lot.

I like these types of games, and at first I enjoyed it. But then I finished the first part, and got on to the second part, and I just loved it. As you can see, this is the first game I've felt the need to write a review for,'cause it's just so damn good! ;3

Graphics - 9/10 - Very simple, but fit with the games overall style well

Gameplay - 9/10 - Nice spin on the 'multiple versions of you' game, and very well executed.

Sounds - 10/10 - Fit the game amazingly well and really set the tone for the whole thing

Story - 8/10 While there's no real 'story', the messages were well written and thought provoking, especially in the second part.

Overall - 9/10 - The first game on Newgrounds I've felt the need to review, and with good reason. A brilliant game all round.
