Rated 5 / 5 stars

This is the kind of game that people remember. A popular concept with an enjoyable, unique twist. Although the art wasn't the best in terms of skill, the small touches (like changing the appearance of your character and arrow as you level them up) totally made up for it.

As far as balance is concerned: Leveling up only souls, soul value, and energy made collecting souls for all the other upgrades extremely easy, and getting the speed upgrades actually made collecting souls harder. Something to think about.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

A nice merger of simple concepts, gives a solid experience with fun gameplay.

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Thought it was great hope you make a sequel with different characters to choose from


Rated 4 / 5 stars

definitely some fresh air for "launcher" genre. this one doesn't take long to beat and can entertain without overextending itself. There are flaws, of course, but these matter little as the games pacing holds interest well enough.
It also rewards skill more than others of the genre, as you can collect "souls" very quickly if you buy the right upgrades and concentrate on each launch.

Ragdoll physics really give this one some good life as well...

out of 10...
gfx - 8 (cute, clean, but simple)
sfx - N/A (i have no soundcard)
design - 9 (good sense of timing)
gameplay - 8 (slightly loose controls)

overall, this was very entertaining. Perhaps towards the end it wore a bit thin, but this is alright, as I beat it on the launch after getting all upgrades. A hi-score table might have been cool addition, but with everything else that went into such a short and sweet game it is not important.
