Challenging game. Beat after losing about a 130 lives. Next challenge is gonna be dying 2k times now... oh boy.

Love the retro look, awesome call back to the Nintendo hard games of yesteryear. Controls are responsive, but I couldn't help myself from mashing up every now and then to try and jump over something. Nice trick with the crystals at the boss fight in the end, thought I could wait it out. Big mistake. Awesome music and sweet voices.

Aw shucks, thank you, it's always nice to read when someone likes it :)

Buen juego, me recordó los primeros Castlevania por su dificultad, aunque me pareció algo simple, esperaba que se fuese haciendo mucho más complejo. La cantidad de vidas es excesiva de todas maneras, tener tantas hace que uno intente muchísimas veces hasta que resulta y hace que uno piense menos los movimientos. Quizás podrías hacer un modo difícil con menos vidas o un modo hardcore con solo una. De todas formas me gustó, el estilo de 8-bit le da ese toque de consolas viejas que trae recuerdos :)

Mil gracias por tu comentario ^_^

Nice idea and a good old "Nintendo hard" style game.

Kooh responds:

Thank you very much! Be sure to be on the look out for our new game!

Kooh responds:

Thank you for the review, our next game is currently revising a better collision system (it's hard but we are getting there)!

I loved the game, even though i suck at it. But after managing to get The Dj takozx badge, It doesnt show up in my medal screen.

Kooh responds:

I wonder why that is... maybe a problem on NGs side.
