AMAZING game, but sometimes the screen just goes black and i have to reset all my progress on some levels.

Response To Dwarf: Cheeky boi moment

devdwarf responds:

We'll have it fixed next week. Will you update review then? 3 1/2 kinda low for an "AMAZING game" ;)

I loved the music and the smooth gameplay :]

Peppy music, simple but serviceable art, and a fun gameplay gimmick. This was enjoyable all the way through!

The soul ability can be a bit hard to use at times. It isn't always immediately clear what direction your soul will go when you press X. Sometimes it's directly up, sometimes it's in the direction of your momentum. Maybe some graphical indication would have helped streamline things.

Overall, a fun experience!

devdwarf responds:

it always goes directly up. you then turn it with the left and right keys.

Damn this soundtrack is awesome, quite creative mechanics!

so fucking good, this is real game design here
