yeah

awesome game. i haver saw such a good gameplay creation.
btw found a bug when a stood right next to the cage and a foe hit me so i slided through the way in a straight line and collected the gem and didnt need to buy speed+ .

Pretty fun

This game is fairly fun, but it's also pretty easy and doesn't have a whole lot of replay value. I'm curious why you start fighting waves of weaker enemies again after the green dragons (around wave 20 I believe)? I feel like the later waves would've been more challenging if you added even stronger enemies instead of reusing ones from earlier waves.

Most of the powerups feel a bit pointless: the Defense+ and Lifebar+ upgrades aren't terribly useful because it's pretty easy to avoid getting hit in the first place. Likewise, Double Jump and Speed+ didn't see a lot of use in my playthrough except to get two of the gems. The only one that I felt had a noticeable effect on gameplay was Power+, for obvious reasons.

All in all it's a fun game to waste some time on once or twice, but not something I'll probably revisit.

Fun, quirky game

Not too bad, but it seems to take a VERY long time to get upgrades after the first few. Could use a little better balancing, but it was pretty fun.

Addicting!

I just stopped playing when i reached the end!

8/10

Great work

This game seems to be done in the style of the old supernintendo games or possibly even NES game. It is rather fun. Thank you for making this game and putting it on newgrounds. Finding all 6 of the gems is a fun challenge. Also FIRST REVIEW!!!! Had to say that. :-D
