(Warning: This game may be quite difficult. Play at your own risk!)

Climbing up the stairway in search of revelation, a lone traveler defies a spiteful god residing at the top of the world. Unamused, the indignant deity lays down increasingly difficult laws designed to kill his unwelcome visitor as he ascends toward the moonlit skies. Can you make it to the very top and discover the secrets of this divine structure? May heaven grant you fortune.

Rated 4 / 5 stars

This game is pretty cool.

If this game was a little bit easier so I could have the patience to finish Level 11, then this would be one of the games I play a lot. Unfortunately it is super super super difficult, but that is the point of this game anyway. I still get mad when I play those types of games, but this game made up with nice graphics, nice (but difficult) gameplay, epic music and a teletubby.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Really great game. :)

So challenging but awesome. XD Epic music too. :)

I think I get better each time though. :? Or not. XD I HAVE beat the game though, so it's not impossible. :p (You can even go to my profile and check my medals for proof. XD)

I don't really get the story though. :? I guess the point of the trial was proving yourself as a human being, or possibly being above that on a level you weren't supposed to? Well, that's pretty damn awesome. :p

I just wish it wasn't so short. :( I guess the more you die though, the longer the game will be, LOL. XD


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Best game EVER!

i have more feeling in this than any other platformer!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

This is a great "cruel" platformer. In junior high I gravitated towards these games all of the time. I had a frustrating time near the beginning, though. The game is short and sweet, I beat it in one sitting, and Pause Ahead borrows elements from it! (Pause Ahead made me curious about this one)

With more levels and features to expand the game, this would make a nice indie console/Steam store release. Thanks, Askiisoft!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

This difficult piece of shit is AMAZING! It has that narration, that GameBoy feel, that Soundtrack, makes this game worth the 2 hours of my life! Instant 5 stars in my book!
