This game takes inspiration from old school games like the first Castlevania games or the Ghouls n Ghosts game series, which it does with platformer features that nowadays are mostly forgotten and not explored, because of their ability to cause major frustration for the player.

In these games you can't for example change the direction after you jump, but have to bear the consequences of your desicion to jump.

It isn't for everyone, but if you got the guts to bear it I give you the ultimate challenge.

Difficulty goes kinda like this, one two, fuck you.

Controls ingame.

I agree with meanjoe. There are places where you're kind of forced to take the damage. Also, the graphics are not outstanding.
In addition, your use of vulgarities in your description are inappropriate.

Locomotivator responds:

And I can attest that I have tested every single segment in the game, and there is no place in the game where you absolutely have to take damage, it's all in the timing and accuracy of your jumps.

Yes it's inappropriate, but do I care?


Rated 5 / 5 stars

That was pretty good. You were very accurate in your comments. I finished the first two trials thinking they were way too easy. I'm not even close to finishing the third. Overall, the controls were very smooth and the game was entertaining. The only part I don't like is how there were spots where it seems you have to take damage, but it adds to the difficulty.

All in all, five stars.

Actually there are no places in the game where you have to take damage, there are a few places where your timing has to be very accurate if you want to avoid taking damage.

Maybe it's because I forgot to mention that you can duck?

It's a good start for a game, but honestly it looks like you just went on Gamemaker and played around for 5 minutes. I'd like to see a more developed version come through the portal though.

Locomotivator responds:

Here is a 5 minute project for you:

In all seriousness I actually used a fair bit of time to tweak the engine to make the later levels beatable but borderline impossible.

Yeah it was very awesome!
