The concept of multi-character cooperative play is hardly original, but I think this is the first time I see a skeleton and a ghost. That'd be a good starting point for a great game, and your visual style is both pretty and unique.

Unfortunately, the level design is quite bland, doing the same trivial switches and valves over and over again. Calling this a "puzzle" is stretching the term.
The only actual challenge was a little jumping sequence, but the challenge was more in getting used to the weird jumping physics.

Am I going to register on your site to play more than 5 levels, or even pay for a full version? No. Never. From the 20 year old "The Lost Vikings" to the currently frontpaged "I saw her too" series, others have done the concept better than you.

DO NOT PLAY! You have to give an email 5 levels in. WTF do we have to give you an email and wait for a code to play!? That's just crap!

4DXGames responds:

Thanks for your feedback, we've removed this feature and unlocked all 10 demo levels. In hindsight asking for an email if you are enjoying it was a mistake based on your feedback. Thanks for taking the time to play our demo.

Concept is overdone, controls are very flighty. Is that a picture of the Raincoat Killer from Deadly Premonition at the beginning?

4DXGames responds:

Could you go into more detail about 'flighty' controls? we value your feedback very much and no it is not but i can see the resemblance :)

I loved very much the graphic and the atmosphere, the music have serious problems! Too short and another registration for play more levels ,for me,it's not the right move.

4DXGames responds:

Thank you for your feedback, the problems with the games sound have now been fixed (hopefully) and there is no longer a need to register for more levels :)

Sound is fucked! Popping noises were about to blow my speakers. What the heck!

4DXGames responds:

We will definitely look into that, thanks for your feedback
