Rated 3 / 5 stars

I thought this game was okay, overall. The graphics and sound are nice, the controls are responsive and, moving platform niggles and crash bug* aside, all of the puzzles can be completed.

(*Trap a character under a lowering elevator and the game AND your browser will crash)

What irritated me, however, was the sexism present in this game. The two characters you guide are an overpowered knight (who can jump high and use any button/switch) and a weak princess (who jumps half as high as the knight and can't use some switches) - misogyny like this might be acceptable in an [M] or [A] rated power fantasy but this is a platform-based puzzle game intended for kids and adults alike. Although these quirks didn't really affect the gameplay, they still left a bad taste in my mouth. -_-U

If you really want to improve this game, Frozennnn, please tweak the characters and their skill sets.

Since the knight is wearing heavy armor, he should have a lower jump height and take more than a few hits from enemies and their projectiles. Because the princess is wearing lighter clothing, it's understandable that she would get killed by spikes and fireballs but it wouldn't hurt if she could jump high (and float?) or use magic gloves to lift the knight to places he can't normally reach. Balanced use of skills is part of the reason team-based games like The Lost Vikings and even Money Movers were enjoyable.

You have the talent and skill to make good games. Please fix the aforementioned problems before you start on your next project (or add new chapters to this one).

Rated 4 / 5 stars

I like these dual character kind of games! Could be playable with a buddy so, so either local multiplayer or single player, and there are way too few local multiplayer games out there! The cutscenes at the start kinda hyped me up too much though, after all that inspiring footage... it's 'just' a platformer. :P But it's well-made and good fun. Graphics, sound, etc - all fits in nicely. Nice work!



Rated 1.5 / 5 stars

It's an interesting concept - which I've seen before, to be honest - but the execution falls a bit short. The way the characters slide around makes them difficult to control precisely, especially since one character can push the other, making it all too easy to accidentally push a character or a crate off a ledge when you're trying to jump on top of them. It's far too easy to get the princess somewhere she can't get out of, and sending the knight in to get her out is impossible if it's a tight spot, because he just stands on her head and won't get off. It's also possible for the knight to exit the level while the princess is trapped somewhere, leaving you no choice but to restart. Lastly, contrary to the on-screen text, you can't kill enemies by jumping on them.

Summary: interesting idea, but frustrating to play.
