Strange and tricky

Well that was an interesting game you have here strange but I found it entertaining love the old style here love the music in this, you really cant go wrong as you produced a solid fun and entertaining game so nice efforts here making it a more fun game style and its not everyday one can find good quality games like this


The 180 flip is disorienting, the movement is slug is, the death(?) voice line is bad and loud and if there is lore (idk if there is or is not) it is so confusing.
No health bar, you lose the stones if you die, confusing map and stupid 180 flip effect.
Edit: beat this game, still hate it

So this is what a roguelike would basically look and feel like on a game & watch. Well tell you what it wasn't too good.

It's really unfun to play, the movements are sluggish and I have to tap the direction I want to go to. The enemy spam is really annoying in the later levels.

It looks authentic tho, so I guess this game has this going for it.

Hey, I remember beating this one!

Jokes aside, I really love the atmosphere a this one! And it plays really well too! I would only make the font of the instructions a bit brighter, it's really hard to see against the background.

I can't say why but I loved it very much
