It's a nice die-a-lot kinda game. It has nice music and anime themed style. Great job!
(Warning: Contains spoilers and JOJ <---- joke lol but seriously, has spoilers)
If you're not trying to beat this game without dying, it's very easy. Especially the final boss but the final boss was rather buggy. The first time I'm fighting her, it kinda looks like she's scrolling around the screen and using her magic to kill me all the time. I was like wtf? She's too fast and shit...eventually it slowed down a bit..The fight's too easy as well.
Now if you're trying to beat this game without dying then it is indeed very hard. Especially at stage 2-1. I do memorize the patterns but it's still hard...even when my reflexes are rather weak.
The voice acting and music are super fucking awesome.. I especially love how the final boss screams as she's dying and said "I regret nothing" Then dies.
It was a bug, thankfully, some of the Newgrounds users got a hold of it and now it's fixed!
You can now enjoy the cutscene!
Not bad, in fact I like it!
Thank you very much, PoisonHeart, glad you enjoy it!
A hard-as-hell platformer, yet it never feels cheap or cheatsy. That everything moves in set patterns shows a lot of care put into the level design. And it's not overlong too, which makes me happy. I cleared it in not too long, mostly by being patient... every time I rushed, I died.
I did get the weird lives-destroying bug at the final battle too. I was wondering if that was intentional... guess not.
My only... well, not really a complaint, just... well, honestly, the characters shown in the title art and in the shard-get bit are really adorable, and I'd rather see a 'high-def' version of the game using those rather than retro-pixels during gameplay and cinemas. It'd also help with... y'see, it always bugs me a little when really-retro-pixel-looking games just "Mode 7" rotate a sprite... always throws me off. Plus the way the sprites are scaled, like the giant swinging blades, and how the shards are super-smooth shapes, not pixel-built at all... I think things would look more cohesive (and stand out from other games a lot more) altogether were this done with a line-art look instead. Not a complaint, just... an opinion.
Overall, really good, looking forward to seeing what else you got coming!
This is the second time this bug appears, it's not game breaking, but I think fate decided to put it on the most important event, and it scares people!
Spooky! The pixels with art combined is more of a catering to a niche and design choice.
Thank you very much for the feedback, ThatMSipher!
I quit after about 5 minutes of just dying -_-
Not my type of game, but I like the art and the voices in the beginning of the game :3
There's a walkthrough on YouTube, if you want the story but not the gameplay there's always that!
