I beat the game but did not get the medal. Frustrating!

Good classic game. Can't find the secret medal though. I know it's a hidden passage of sorts, but there is no marker so to speak. Irksome to spam hallucinate everyone looking for darn thing

something is missing... what coult it be..?
i know whats missing! the fun! the fun is missing from that game.

I enjoyed playing this. The retro graphics and movement/aiming mechanism appealed to me but I must say it was really just too easy. None of the enemies were challenging at all, even the last guy was a joke due to the insane power of the darts/spikes whatever. I'm not sure what other people mean when they say they needed more hints or couldn't figure it out... the one dude near the statue tells you exactly where to go to get in the castle. Having the checkpoint refill your ammo made it way less challenging. Honestly just punching was so effective you didn't need the gun, and the scorpion gave you a weapon that killed it in 1/2 shots. The ending was also quite abrupt, but I think this game could be expanded on beautifully. If it had a bigger world or longer arc or more different enemies it would really be propelled into greatness in my opinion. I enjoyed your game though so thank you for making it, keep up the good work.

Thanks, glad you enjoyed. I'm currently working on another episode of the series which will be bigger and have more enemy variety. You can check out the development log here: http://forums.tigsource.com/index.php?topic=29733.0

This game is full of bugs. Literally.

3.5 deserved stars for this nice retro style adventure with simple yet effective gameplay, catchy atmosphere and story. Ending is really disappointing and some sections a bit boring, so to explain the 1.5 I had to remove from the total.
