Reminds me of Altered Beast, the jump is a bit touchy

An interesting game though quite a few bugs need to be fixed its going in the right direction, although the intro to me just kinda sounded like the megaman X theme song but slowed down... still a good game though!

Seriously, I can not enjoy the game
The game is freeze time by time around 1 sec or more, I can not go further the first floor

The worst problem isn't the several bugs or the terrible movimentation. Is the freaking level design. It's nonsense and very annoying. It isn't a chalenge, but a nerve test. 1 star for the music and the art.

while a decent game, there are several MAJOR issues with it

1) if you collect an item, then die without leaving the screen, the item vanishes. the item screen says you collected it, but its not there, and you cant go back and get it, because its vanished from the collection point as well.

2) the biggest major issue has to do with above: the green key is collectable in only one direction. you can jump over to get it, but trying to jump back results in instant death form the acid. none of the green blocks unlock, and you cant get the key again, meaning you're stuck. you might be able to make it back with the 3x jump powerup, but this powerup is... behind a GREEN LOCKED BLOCK, as is the dry suit.

3) jumping up to exit the screen, and missing the jump and falling back down gets you stuck inside the blocks that make up the stage. you cant get out of them, resulting in having to start over.
