I made this in a day and half as a challenge and design exercise for myself. I basically wanted to take metroidvanias and distill them to their purest form.

I'm posting it here just to see what others think, so please let me know!

I like it.

Simple, well thought out, and addictive...too bad it's a little too short.

Short, but nifty

It serves its task well, distilling the metroidvania gameplay style of tight and difficult moves and planning into a tidy, no-nonsense piece that examines the genre as a whole without becoming a tawdry art piece. It is a legitimate purification of a popular genre, and it serves to really demonstrate to people what the genre is basically about.

I played on mute, so I can't really talk about the music, but overall this is a clever game to breeze through, even if it doesn't have a great deal of replayability. As such, I gladly give it an 8 out of 10 and a 4 out of 5.

Pretty interesting little game...

Enjoyed playing this. My only concern is the game's length/difficulty. I see that you made the game in a day in a half so obviously no points taken off for that. I only hope you will expand on this concept and make a "SUPER" Game About Literacy :P

Would love to see a more expansive version of this with more levels etc. I give you an 8 because I'm saving the 10 for the sequel to this ;)

By the way.. The link diog was trying to post was this: FuzlQ
