Go through the daily mail route of the forests postman. A small game for the Construct 2 contest.

-- Controls --
All you need is your mouse to play!

'M' to mute
'P' to pause

-- Note --
Touch controls (if playing on a phone) are a bit iffy at the moment, I am in the process of trying to touch them up a bit!

how was this game downvoted? yea it hard, but is awazing!

Very interesting game. No real instructions, you just hit play and start playing. It's a bit unclear what to do at first, but after the first few deaths the objective becomes obvious. I like that you give no instructions at all here. Sure, tutorials are nice, but I'm really fed up with the "tutorial levels" where you get stopped by a text pop up every other minute.

The controls are nice and simple, just point and click. Maybe it's a bit too much of "trial and error" here, but it's the concept you chose for this game, and you stick to it, no matter what. And that's what I like.

I also give you points for the art. Everything looks a bit sloppy, but it also looks "hand drawn", which is pretty cool, imo.

The music just isn't my kind of thing, but at least you implemented a way to mute it. Another point for that. ;)

Overall: Interesting concept; nice art; not so good music, but it can be muted.

A very interesting game, I liked the styling in particular. It's a little hard for me to review as the only thing I can think to improve it would be to add more content but as it stats in the author comment that this was "a small game" it wouldn't be fair to mark it down for that, really. So I won't.

The music used for the background was a good choice as it lent the game a tranquil feel, even when you kept dying at the same point over and over.

The style is beautiful I love the hand drawn look of everything. As others have said this is a game that doesn't hold your hand and I love it for it. Its a simple concept but has more depth than you would think. Don't believe the naysayers, its a solid game!

:) thanks for the re-assuring words!

I thoroughly enjoyed that the game didn't treat me like an idiot, and let me figure out on my own. I was having a lot of fun, while I could play it. At around the second "level", if you will, the game just cuts to nothing but the background halfway through. I was really looking forward to playing the rest.

Jhomas responds:

I have heard this happens! Could you please PM me the browser you were using / OS? I havn't been able to reproduce it on my own system. Thanks for the review!
