dont know if this is WAD, but the skill in the skill tree was grey and i had no double shield

It was pretty good, to say the least. Good concept, a not often explored genre.

Personally, however, I think it could be a lot more streamlined. First and foremost, I noticed I didn't really have much control over my character beyond jumping. In a situation where you have to either avoid or kill monsters, I'd have liked some ability to move left and right. Plus, a varying jump height: most of my deaths resulted from overshooting a jump or having the jump not respond in time.

Otherwise, it's a fairly good timekiller, but I think just moves a bit too slow and uncontrolled for me.

I'll improve jumping controls in the sequel.

It's great for a burst of fun. Canonbalt (am i too drunk to remember that right?) with a twist. I am a big fan of this style of game and this is a great exemplar of the style. thank you clockwork monster.

BEAUTIFUL! This game is an amazing timekiller, nut thats not it. This run 'n' gun genre is one used far and few, but it has been wonderfully remasterd in this game! Kudos to you!!
