(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 5 / 5 stars

The first flash game I ever played. After playing countless others since, I maintain it's one of the very best, maybe even the best ever. The soundtrack is stellar, the 'story' for what little it is appealing, and the gameplay is fantastic: challenging but not unfair. Just a brilliant game.

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

There's a rhyme and a reason to why this is 3.5 stars. Don't get me wrong, 3.5 not BAD in any way...

It's a fairly good game, yes. We've all been to the top of the tower, and playing it on the flash version made me trickle with good vibes. But it was soon stopped when I reached the top so early. Probably a joy kill. Fuck that, i'd lose my shit if Ocarina of Time was only 9 minutes long, too. This is why flash games are so short, they obviously don't have any room for any more levels unless they choose to go with low frames and/or shitty art styles.

Alright, it's good. But to be fair, its levels define 'Lack of Difficulty' that most games seem to avoid. If you say this game is challenging in any way, get yourself some Ninja Gaiden and give yourself a ghost pepper. Soundtrack, bought. Level editor, definitely great (My challenge will be given below) and overall, the strive to get to the top of what seems to be a 10 meter tower of disappointment and dictation, simply beautiful. If there be another ToH, which there will never be, it would include 500% more gameplay.
