I will kill you if you don't improve this game and get a contract going with Steam!
You have so much talent and it was really fun playing your game!
I love the leveldesign! The music fits to each level and each has a quite beautiful pixels look!
The Game is not easy but not frustratingly hard because you keep your money after each level and then buy upgrades that makes you get deeper into the game, yet the upgrades are balanced well! The monsters are also interesting because they have all different abilities... to be honest this could already be a full game!
But you may want to improve a few things when you make another game!
Storyline, better sprites (hints to the floor) and some more things but I bet you are going to have alot ideas already and I want to leave you with that genius mind of yours!
Keep it up!
the final boss makes me cry :(
It's a okay game i had a fun time paying it
You deserve this, buddy :D
I remember seeing this game on /vg/. I doubt you remember me but I was the Anon that suggested the character name to be West. Finally happy to see it finished. While simple it is a fun game of risk and reward while being somewhat replayable. For the hell of it I did a little test and honestly you don't even need to move your character until the 2nd from last level so any complaints before that point is just from pure laziness, lack of upgrades or both. With that said the last two levels aren't easy to the point where you can finish them without even trying though I never felt the game was unfair. I think the learning curve is quite fair and of course rewarding for those who actually try to play the game while at the same time literately anyone can beat the first three or so stages by simply upgrading when given the chance.
Normally I only give simple games like this 4/5 but you took real care to make sure the game is both easy and challenging while completely balance. I think you honestly deserve 5/5 for taking the time to make sure this game was perfect before release. It doesn't take fancy graphics or a ton of upgrades to make a great game, it just take the Dev caring for his product. That what I base my ratings on. I am kinda hoping you will expand on this idea and make Eastward 2, there is a ton of stuff you could add to it.
