This was a great game! I spent a few hours on this and it definitely infuriated me at some parts, especially that one boss at the end of chapter 4. The graphics were very nice, the darkness complimented the bright colors you used and I have always been biased by pixelated platformers. I found the torches to be a clever "checkpoint", even implementing it into one of your puzzles. All In all, it was a long and hard, but enjoyable, game that I would recommend to my friends.
it's cool but it needs something more. it reminds of "don't look back" that is a game that with few words and little direction made me feel a range of emotions with its atmosphere. play it see if it inspires you.
Sorry, I really enjoyed the first 2 chapters, but I had to wrap the rest up with a playthrough on Youtube, lol. It's not something you can really casually enjoy on your own as much as it is something to sit down, clear your schedule, and dedicate yourself to for a bit for those who'd enjoy it.
Anyway, what's Blinkende lygter about? Not really one for poetry and 0I couldn't find an English analysis online.
There's an english translation here http://allpoetry.com/Twinkling-lights, I think it's the one I used in the game. It doesn't do the original danish text justice but that was the best I could find :)
I found this game amazing! The pixel graphics are beautiful. Chapter 4 was awesome and a game on its own, with some of its concepts taught by the earlier chapters. I drew a map of the contents of all sections on paper. Only the last chapter 5 was as commented before not nice. The first part of it was fun if you open the game with chapter 1 in another browser to follow along. But then those black screens with white squares after that were frustrating and missed the nice graphics. And in chapter 4 it's only by pure coincidence that I saw the dark red platforms with the music notes, that could've been made more obvious, maybe by introducing the music notes in chapter 3 in a simpler setting. Why did a guy in chapter 4 say I wouldn't come back when dying in the temple? I tried it out on purpose due to curiosity, good thing that I didn't have to start over. Overall still fantastic, one of the best games I played on newgrounds lately!
Loved it. Hard, requires thinking, memory and has a nice atmosphere. Couldn't rate this lower... My only complaint is that the "boss" is too hard, it requires some luck to be beaten. Maybe you could change it's projectiles or it's size, who knows? But in everything else, it's outstanding.
If anyone is having trouble with the "memory" parts, just take screenshots./ phone shots of these screens. Not that funny, but may be useful for more casual players.
