In sound alone it get a perfect, a bitter-sweet story,and well...what else can you rate it on? Rating it on graphics wouldn't be fair,so rate in on what it has,rather that lacks,and you have your self a nice 2 minute game,you've produced a wonderful game.No one can tell you other wise!


Rated 3 / 5 stars

The game is simple artistically, but I fell that that wasn't a stylistic choice, merely a blunder on teh part of the author. Other than that, I like how the controls were smooth and never glitched, the music was fitting and the notes led you along to complete the game in an inventive way.


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

Well it was simple, occasionally had a challenge but was basically a five minute game, and it had nothing new to offer. Why not just give this a 2 star and call it a day? Because it's embodies the fact that games don't have to be about visual stimulation, they can have a more emphasized story. And be that as it may, it can still be a game, not an interactive movie.
Why not give it 10 stars then? Because it's a cliched story. Movies and games nowadays are all too quick to embrace the darker path, as opposed to the happy ending. The hero dies, the lovers part, the children grow old and lose their whimsy, etc etc.
This game sends a great message, but it's not that great itself. I give it 5 stars because I want to support it, but honestly it's pretty generic.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Gameplay is nothing too new or original and graphics are more than minimalistic. But, wow, this has been wrapped up in such a way that I'm still going to give it a high score. Soundtrack is great and fits perfectly, lines are intelligent and well written, and the ending is truly special.

Only 5 minutes, but definitely well spent. Thank you.
