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!

Impossible jump?

For people who were complaining about the "impossible jump" FuzlQ&feature=channel_video_title
For the others and the dev:
This game is really great, the music fits perfectly and I like the concept.
Needs a pause button and a starting screen, though.
Rated 5/5 and 10/10

I liked it

It was to short but thats all good game. also @ rocker I'm epileptic and let me tell you its only a specific patter that will cause seizures though your concern is nice this game will not hurt anyone.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Seriously, for safety reasons

You need to warn people that are susceptible to seizures that there is something like that at the end. You don't anybody getting hurt because of a game you made. Other than that, not bad.

Simply put, this concept has been done too many times before. I love the "MetroidVania" genre, but this one doesn't really stand out. It's too basic; there's nothing about it that sets it apart from the hundreds of other MetroidVania games. I would have easily given this game a 10 for graphics and music alone, but there was just too much "get the key so you can unlock the door to get another key".


Rated 4 / 5 stars


Should have put a freakin seizure alert... Other than that, I liked the upgrade system, could have been more fun if you implemented patrolling monsters that send you back to spawn for a more time-crunchy feel.
