There may be performance issues with some machines; if you have Windows you can download it here

Run and find your way through randomly generated levels, squishing shadow-like monsters and killing fierce bosses. Heavily inspired by The Binding of Isaac.

This is my first time experimenting with random generation, so hope it's not too buggy.


For some reason video player doesn't work with WebGL so you won't find the cool moving space background for the final boss online. You'll have to download it.

Amazing game with great gameplay, pretty good challenge with the final boss but my only real complaint is the shadow hands can cheap shot you if your not careful (main reason for not going for the no death medal) and The Fraud EX seemed to only use the purple lasers for the majority of the fight and idk if it's intentional or not. And the boss rush it's self is alright the only boss I didn't like is The Blight and overall beat the boss rush in 54 deaths. I am also sure there is a dark story here but I can't really figure it out but definitely worth playing and I hope to see more like this in the future

Very nice game

I love what you did with this game like lighting effects and the dark elements giving it a very stylish visual and the gameplay was very nice, Controls are nice work and are easy to handle so very nice job on the controls, So my Impression of this is that you have done good here you have something decent and interesting Your Representation in this game is swanky and Positive, Thats what has allured me here and I was taken back by how interesting this really is so nice effort you have put fourward on this great game and once again Controls are nice work and are easy to handle so very nice job on the controls.


You guys might've heard Binding of Isaac, and the story of Isaac. But you see, THIS story was from the POV of another kid who was almost going through the same thing. The difference was that this kid's story was just a bit darker (literally). Storytelling aside, nice job man. The artstyle reminds me of BoI, and this is a pretty good side-scroller.

I kinda expected an Isaac clone, but instead got a sidescroller. I think it's pretty good, I especially like the lighting.

Was this name taken?
