All of the hidden areas add a lot of replay value to the game.

The movement is far too slow, there's no tutorial so I have no idea what I can do or what I'm supposed to do, and most of the traps are cheap gimmicks without a way to avoid them save succumbing to them enough times to figure out their patterns/ranges/edges. No, thanks.

Beautiful graphics, but not much in the way of replayability. A bit slow, but neat none the less.

I didn't think it was possible. Am I the only one who commented to notice the huge tally marks on the walls at the site of Every.
Or the noises a whole second before the traps activated?
Or the pulsatile glow emanating from every spiked pit?
PLEASE respond and tell me I'm wrong. I mean, they told me to pay attention to my surroundings.
Lovely spooky little game though.

one thing i dont get when you compleat the game you start over or maybe i just went the wrong way
