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

Fascinating usage of the retro Tiger Electronics design, scrolling background and voice! It was incredibly faithful to its roots, but almost too much at times since it got a little repetitive and confusing at times. Felt like the main screen was too cramped and ironically, the ideal way to play the game wasn't to look at the main screen, but at the radar in the top corner, which is a bummer since it means you don't get to see the cool graphics. Neat twist at the end that really amped it up; might want to make it easier to get there as it can be a little boring to get that far.

Is it supposed to do the play button before the load or after?
Because it does the play button first.

The way this looks make me think of those little old video games, except it's lighting itself rather it needing lighting.

I'm not quite sure about how I feel of this game.

you probably cursed all of us

Congratulations, another great game! It really captures the feeling of the old handheld games from the 90's... but in a really RainbowCemetery-ish way!

It's outstanding how your games send the same vibes... even if this one didn't use the usual black-white-red color palette of your other games, I found myself thinking "hey, this somehow gives me the same feeling as These Remains...". Then I checked who the author is, and BAM! That's you.
As I told you in a private message months ago, it's rare to find an author with a style so clearly defined that you can tell which games are his without even looking at his name. Great job!!!
