the game is indeed beautiful i loved the graphics and the peaceful music, i loved the world and the sky the stars how silent the creatures are, specially the little guy, like a hermit in a peacefull yet dangerous place at the same time.
the music is relaxing i love the 8 bit
the only bad thing is how sadisticly dificult this game is!!
Just after encountering the blue monster, you hear music and think, well it gets epic ... Unfortunately, you end up hating this part. Because the festival to die impaled on skewers starts here. But the game is funny.
some of the damned jumps have to be timed to the last pixel on non grip slopes going either direction with a minimal jump height and one of those ultra fast character fall speeds... you sir are a masochist. good little game.
Enjoyable for a while
I don't mind playing games that are difficult. The harder a game is, the more profound the feeling of accomplishment when you succeed.
With this game, I had a decent time and didn't mind dying multiple times on a given challenge, but eventually it just became a chore and I realized I was less annoyed with the actual failure at the challenges and more frustrated that I wouldn't see the rest of the game.
I don't know how long the game is overall, since I stopped playing after a particularly difficult series of slope jumps.
The unforgiving nature of some of these levels makes it easy to mistake intentional cruelty for bad level design.
It's obvious you know what you're doing and you can make great games, but it seems like making a game with such spikes in difficulty and then calling it "slightly challenging" and taunting the players in the alternate mode is a bit off.
I do genuinely appreciate the abundance of checkpoints, given the difficulty of those certain parts. I don't know if more were added due to player whining, but it does make the game less frustrating than it would be having to perform several ridiculous platforming acrobatics in a row.
I feel like I've played far enough in to get a good feel for the game, but without Medals or something I don't feel any motivation to go back and finish it.
At any rate, please keep making games.
I really did like this game until it came to the point where I got stuck. The "ruins" part. I dunno, maybe it's just me, but I tried over and over to get past it and I couldn't so I gave up.
Sorry to hear. Did the Easy Mode not help at all?
