ABOUT:
This is my 2nd game ever and was started somewhere around August 16th, 2014, and was finished on September 17th, 2014. I made a similar project a few years ago but never finished. It had almost the exact same color scheme and basic art style. I decided to remake the project and this is the result. I am really happy with this game because it is exactly what I wanted to make. Please follow my twitter/tumblr for more updates.

Thanks to Crazy_Leen, HRES, Legiuc, and AGDG.

Ok, the second part, where you go East... I didn't finish it. Mainly bacause I was distracted by my ubearable urge to kick that wisecracking old... ass in the face... cause I'm meeting him for the tenth time at this exact spot. Where the hell I suppose to go, everything looks the same!
The game is good tho.

After playing for 15~ minutes I finished this game easily. The atmosphere was beautifully crafted through the perfect harmony between the music and the art.
The story is a little bit cliche but that doesn't mean it's a bad thing.
All in all, this was an awesome game!

As some have said before, the difficulty is the most annoying thing. I needed about 30 tries to get the boss down. The Only way is to kill all the Skeletons without being hit once, while being lucky that many of them drop orbs. In addition every time you die, you have to climb over that hill again, which also was annoying.

The Game was a bit short, and finding the crystal-part on the right side was too much of "run right and down" cause you didn't even have to kill the enemys on the way. Some sort of location-device and perhaps a bigger map (including map-screen) would've been nice.

Anyways, more enemys, more depth for the story and some Stage-bosses that aren't that hard to beat would (in my eyes) improve the game. Also: Why not make this a series?

I have not yet finished the game, and with the slow pacing and lack of saving upon exit I don't think I am likely to finish the game. I do think that the game is good. As many people have mentioned beforehand, it reminds me of Endeavor in its story and gameplay. The music is nice and relaxing, if a bit repetitive, but that cannot be helped. The choice of color palette with respect to the plot and setting, how the sun crystal broke and all, is a smart choice. It does feel a little dull though; a nearly all black foreground with a simple night sky behind it isn't all that outstanding. The character movement is a bit sub-par. Our hero moves somewhat slowly for the scope of the map, and the ledge mechanic is poorly executed. While I do like the idea of our character catching the ledge and pulling himself up, he DOESN'T pull himself up. I'm not a pixel artist; I don't know how long it would take to make two extra sprites for such an animation. The fact that we have to press the jump button again instead of simply holding it down is incredibly annoying. The inclusion of combat is a questionable choice. I see no reason why it is needed other than as an obstacle to overcome, something rather redundant seeing as how in platforming games all things are obstacles to overcome. They also seem random and without reason, but perhaps I have not ventured far enough to learn of their reason. Then there was that bug I mentioned in my deleted review. I probably should've realized I wasn't supposed to be in that area when the ground lost its grass texture. Overall it is a good game, but I am not motivated enough to finish it. There is plenty of room for improvement.

good concept. the game is there and runs nice but could use some more work. one thing that annoyed me was that every time i would jump and hang on a platform i would have to repress the directional button to continue or else jump in place. the only way to fight safely is to fight one guy at a time and to pay close attention to him; which is boring. remember noone is in any postition to tell you how your game is supposed to be, you are to create a unique game of your own individuality. it just needs more to it
