- Don't touch the hearts, they'll only slow you down.

This isn't much, but I really wanted to create something that we could all relate to.
Enjoy.

** Fixed a Bug where the game wouldn't restart after pressing retry.

I would have given this a higher score if for once it was a female doing the rescuing. Or at least they both would do their part and she would not consciously get into trouble and expect her to be rescued. What will happen now is that as always when a man does all the work the female will get entitled spend his money and later divorce him and get the house, the kids, the alimony and the children money. And he will be called rapist. Either both partners put in effort from the start or one get's entitled and ungrateful in in modern society it is usually the female.

So no I don't really relate to this.

As for the game - even with reading instructions first, I was really confused about the hearts. Should I avoid them or pick them up? Generally hearts are treated as good things in games as extra health or score. Maybe you should have put rocks or bats in place of hearts.

The game is short and not much fun. I put 2 stars and not 1 because it has medals and it's easy, because worse then a bad game can only be a bad game that is also hard and you either have to give up or endure the awfulness for a long time. This author has the decency to make his bad game short and easy, and reward players with medals for enduring it, that's at least something.

Wow. Lmao.
Yeah the hearts do seem like a collectible, I didn't really explain the instructions very well. It's more of a learn doing experience.

It´s a bit hard and I from the beggining couldn´t understand the love game is reverse and you shouldn´t collect hearts. but the plot: two skeletons fall in love then there is the earthquake and they jump to commit suicide. in the end he catches her and together they drown in the ocean. just perfect.

Rixium responds:

Haha, perfect

lol. At the end I thought their hands where censor bars. I was like wtf? Good game.

Nice Soundtrack!! Thanks for adding the name of this piano piece

Pretty fun. Would have preferred keyboard controls over the mouse controls, but that could just be because I'm playing on a laptop.
