Author Comments

In a small village the protagonist of our story lives with his older brother in his home. The parents both went missing when they went treasure hunting in a temple far away from the village. One day your brother decides he is going to venture into the cursed castle not too far from the village to hunt for treasure just like your parents. After he does not return after a day you go into the cursed castle after him. Upon entering the castle you hear an ominous voice that tells you that you only have 5 minutes (300 seconds) to find your brother before you succumb to the curse of the castle.

Made for Intro to Game Design and Culture final.


Castle of mega-bugs.

The controls are sluggish, and while the game play is't the best, it isn't the worse. And why can't you jump on a zombie's head to kill it?

It was to add an enemy that you had to absolutely avoid. Look forward to my next game that will have enemy attacks.

Wow, what a horrid game.
I mean, graphics and sounds aside (and these are pretty shitty), the gameplay is really difficult. And not in the fun, challenging way, but in the grinding, "jesus christ I never want to play this game again" way.
It's hard to build up enough speed to jump over enemies since you basically have to build up to top speed most of the time-- because the top speed is fucking slow.
Oh hey, you know what else is slow? Starting the game over again because you fell down the hole on the fourth screen. Again.

Getting past that fourth screen, though, the flying bricks thing is an interesting idea, but falling down on one of those levels I just don't have the interest to fuck through the game up to that point AGAIN.

In short, game is crap. IMO.

Just sounds like your really bad at the game :p

Would be better if you didn't have to go all the way back to the beginning when you die.

You don't once you get to the boss.
