This is very much how retro games should be made. The storylines and mechanics are good, the puzzles interesting and challenging, the art, music, and sounds appropriate...
The only thing I didn't care for aesthetically was there were a few things that seemed randomly not pixelated. Minor beef, considering.
I found farming some materials to be unnecessarily tedious and disruptive to the pacing. That's more a striking the right balance thing. Trekking to the top of that bloody mountain (and back down) over and over got old quick.
The combination of settings and storylines was very good in a Chrono Trigger or Knights of the Old Republic way. An outstanding game for flash, I hope to see more in the future.
