The game is really fun. My only problems are that vine and ladder jumps are really awkward and sword are just a little too expensive.

TheEnkian responds:

Glad you liked it! I've got a Tale of Enki RPG coming out in Februaey. Keep an eye on my user page for info ;)

tell me, how rare are orange and purple kupons?
also great game.

TheEnkian responds:

They're only available from certain treasure chests in hidden areas. Thanks!

I like this game.

The levels were boring. Collision detection was garbage. Music was just ok. The only reason I played through it was to get the story so I can play the second one.

This game feels average at best. I'm writing this in full knowledge that a sequel has been released by now, and I decided to play the first to get an idea of what I'd be in for before playing the next. However, I feel unimpressed by this. The controls felt uncomfortable, I feel that using the up key instead of space to jump would have been a better option. The graphics and the story are nothing too special, and the gameplay feels really slow and awkward. The first boss, Pigasaurus, had an extremely predictable and uninspired pattern and was easy to defeat, though I don't understand why I couldn't hurt it while it was summoning monsters. I hoped that at least experimenting with the new weapons would improve gameplay, but as the medal suggests (as well as the shops I encountered), all of the weapons are just upgrades to the sword. I spent all my money on bombs because they were far better and more useful than the sword, so I never bought the other swords, but if all they do is increase damage, then why have the option to switch between the old swords? Why not just keep the new one? There are many design flaws that hold this back from being an enjoyable platformer, but it just doesn't grab my attention as it is.

TheEnkian responds:

Up wouldn't work for jump because then it'd make vines and ladders incredibly awkward. The controls have been changed for the second game though and people seem to like them a lot better. There are definitely a few design problems with the game, but a lot of them have been fixed for the second game so I hope you'll give it a fair shot.

Thanks for your review!
