(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.

Tower of Heaven

I wrote a giant review about this game, but I accidentally closed my window, causing all my hard work to be wasted. It essentially said all the parts of the game fit together well, yet the new features didn't make up for an old idea just ported to flash. The graphics, music, sfx, and gameplay work great together, but the constant neverending chain of deaths will irritate most casual players, and some hardcore players like me.
All in all, an indie platforming classic that can't be missed.

Is that me...

Or is it really too short ?

The custom level sharing is awkward, plus only 11 levels which are not really that hard...
First time i put my hands on this i was like "awesome ! best game ever on NG" But after 10 minutes I had finished the game. I do not like creating levels. I found the secrets which are quite disapointing. And the rules are not so original. apart from "thou shalt not walk left", the others are quite basic. You should add much more.
But after playing it an hour or so because i think "this game is too good for me not to play it a lot", it is reeeeally boring.

-3 points for the lenght, compared to the quality.

The music is ridiculously amazing though x)

Sounds like you're quite good with 2D platforming games! If you thought it was short and easy the very first time you tried the game, you're pretty good.

Glad you enjoyed the music.

I remember seeing this on Youtube a long time ago played by NercoVMX. It didn't seem very good then, but playing it now I see it wasn't NEARLY as cryptic as I thought it was going to be!

Here were rthe things I liked:
The music is really, really good, among the best I've seen in a flash game in the past few years. The graphics are really cool; they're kind of reminiscent of old Gameboy games and I like that, seeing how people don't put much thought or style into graphics for a lot of flash games. It is really challenging, which is good in this case, because it wasn't an unfair challenge. Needless to say I was undoubtedly frustrated at times by those damn laws, but with patience I was able to get through. I especially like the level where your on the fans and the butterflies are circling above the fan. That took a lot of skill to get through. Also, the level designer was a pretty cool addition.

That's not to say I thought the game was PERFECT however. First off, it's too short, (in my opinion) even for a flash game. I thought it should have at least been about ten levels longer. I think this especially after the book shattered and there were no rules:I would have liked to see more levels that were pure platforming like the last one. Also the ending is REALLY anticlimactic. Sure, boss battles aren't essential in a game, but I still think that being deprived of them is a disappointment. Also, some of the deaths ARE cheap and unfair, particularly the ones with the spikes that just pop out of the ground. Just for the record, I LOATHE beginners traps/trial and error deaths like that. They aren't challenging so much as they are blunt and stupid gimmicks slapped onto a game to make them seem harder. Although to be fair, it's not as bad as some other games I've played, because at least with this you can survive if your reaction time is quick enough. Lastly, I wish that you could duck. This doesn't bother me in some games (like Megaman for example), but this is different because the character is so tall and it makes it feel a little stiff at times. Although ducking would make some of the moving levels too easy, you could just put the blocks lower.

But yeah, I don't really want to badmouth this game, because I do like it. Good job, not prefect, but keep it up!

Pretty good...

The programming/controls are iffy in some places, with the controls sometimes sticking or not responding and dieing for no reason (really evident with the "no walking left" rule).

But overall good level design and a nice challenge.
