It´s so harddd! I love it! Great graphics as well, simple but cool.

Nice job, but the control are awful ... game pad ? Mouse ? Both ?

I swear the archers have aimbot lmao-

nice game but why is jump not also up arrow

nice!! this is an amazing first game, i hope u get to release many more c:


thank you so much for the support <3 excited to learn loads more and make more with what I've learnt


Awesome game. I love that it's difficult, makes completing a level so satisfying.

Thank you so much for the support <3 and for understanding why I made it the difficulty that it is :) 

Very fun and addicting game. The graphics are so great! 

Thank you so much the support <3 

overall a very good game, especially for browser! i only ran into a couple issues while playing:
- is the continue feature supposed to work yet? i just got a black screen
- i got stuck on the wall in level 3 and couldn't get off. is that like a wall climbing feature or a bug?

i think you have a really good game here, with crunchy gameplay, interesting mechanics and nice visuals! the difficulty is spot-on for a retro-styled game as well :)

Thank you so much for your kind words! I also noted you RT-ed the post on Twitter <3 Really appreciate the support. Also thanks for the feedback, will look into the spikes on Level 2.

anytime! haha yeah us indies gotta support each other, loved the look and feel! 

I realized the "Continue" feature certainly doesn't work on browser - only on the download version. I'll fix that in a patch in the A.M.

Getting stuck is an unintended side effect of the collisions which I'll look into as well. Thanks SO MUCH for the feedback. Really appreciate the time you took to write in.

sounds great! 

ah haha i figured it was something like that. are your collisions hand-coded?
of course! i know it's super helpful to get feedback from real players so figured i'd try and help :)
