(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

Despite a single potential bug I found, I enjoyed surpassing the full adventure this game has to offer. I managed to do a deathless 100% after finally completing an under 3 minutes run.
While I would have loved to have gotten Deathless and Speedrun at the same time, however the golden window death still counted despite having passed through it all the while.
I suppose this is something very minute, but it was still a bit of a bother to have to go through the game many more times just to get deathless.

The music is as good as ever, and with the graphics this game feels like it could work on a Gameboy, and the challenge will stand for many years to come. Unlike the tower.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Its a great hard game.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

This is amazing! I love the beautiful chiptune music and the art style, very well done. (Except for the parts when I was so frustrated on a level, I would literally bob my head in anger.)
Standing ovation!


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

The music is gorgeous, it really draws a ton of emotion out of the player in the 20 or so minutes the game takes. The art style is the best I've seen of any modern pixel-graphics game. I just wish the level designs weren't so cheap. I feel like God's spite could've been conveyed without 'The Impossible Game' style tricks.

This kind of presentation & someone like AdventureIslands level design talent, in a game that takes maybe 2 - 3 hours to complete would be bar none the greatest flash game ever made imo.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

The unforgettable soundtrack in the game make you keep going upward. Although it can be frustrating on some room. The leitmotif may be annoying to others but it a pretty crucial part for the game.
