getting weird lag with jumping when I try to jump over monsters? (can't get past the first one :( )

This is beautifully simple. I also like the blue/black combo.

Мне понравилась игра! Потряс эффект ночи: подсветка. Как всегда подобрано красивое сочетание цветов: синего и черного! Сюжет-мультик!:)
Желаю успехов в доработке игры!+)

Really nice and simple game, very nice graphic style! Would be great to see some more kind of platforming or usage of the light mechanic though. Keep up the good work!

Really beautiful art. I wanted more.

We both used a similar concept, but I like your implementation much more. =] I just wish it was longer.

@increpare: i think this lag could be because of low fps. i apologize, but i didn't have time to figure out how to optimize performance.

i wish it was longer too. but i know only basics of flash and actionscript, so i couldn't come up with something longer.

anyway, thank you guys for the kind words and encouragements!

Very simple and effective graphics, very nice visual style, and smooth gameplay.

I would have liked to play a longer game with more platforms and light/dark mechanics. Anyway the graphics are really nice, very smooth, it have some interesting monsters, and I like that.

I hope you add more levels, so far it's nice but also lacking small gimicks and stuff.

Pretty... but very short!

Beautiful, but not much going on...

May 4, 2011 @ 12:58am

Fun little run.

Good job on completing the Dare!

Not much going on with the gameplay, but great graphics. Maybe it would've been nice to see the eyes glowing in the dark if you didn't take the lantern and just tried to stumble in the dark?

Very cute (^_^)

May 5, 2011 @ 10:49pm

Very, very pretty. And even with the framerate going down, it still played very well. It's true it's simplistic, but that leaves space for admiring the great artwork ! Good job !

Wow ! Graphics are simply awesome... Basic mechanics and short, but it fits the theme perfectly.

The audio was a bit annoying, which is a pity because this is really set for some atmospheric kind of music.

I think this is an astounding, perfectly polished job for the LD :)

was a bit hard to see some of the monsters, and I would have liked to see something else here. The graphics are beyond beautiful though.

It felt like I was jumping over hurdles, but it wasn't bad. Graphics are nice.

Very pretty! Would have liked some gameplay but I guess one can't have everything. Theme interpretation was good, in that the statement "it's dangerous to go alone" was actually true for once! (You COULD alone, but if you did, it WAS dangerous... unlike many other entries I've seen which have just tacked it on.)

As everyone else has said, the art was really really nice - but the gameplay was lacking, and it was quite short... Go learn more actionscript and make this an amazing game! :D

Nice game, very pretty. :)

Graphically lovely. Would love to see some extension of the mechanics. Also maybe using the light to light up some of the background/foreground elements as you pass them ?

Looks very good and polished. It's almost a shame that there's not too much of a game in there. At least you tried to hide some of the monsters at the end ;)

Eats up a lot of CPU and slows down, so definitely worth optimising it.

Looks very nice.

May 10, 2011 @ 6:02pm

The scenery is LUSH, though the gameplay is rather simple.

LeafThief says ...

I like that you made the theme into a mechanic, yet it says: "It's dangerous to go alone" not impossible ;)
Good work!

I love the graphics! :)

Really nice! Too short in my opinion I want more! You really pulled me in with the presentation. It totally reminded me of limbo and despite having just a couple simple sound effects that seemed to add to it rather than take away, almost like playing up the 'alone' aspect. I would love to see an extended sequel.

Gameplay was a bit simple, but the graphics were absolutely lovely! Well done!

The graphics are very beautiful, but it's a shame there isn't just a little more to do.

It was really interesting to see how the graphics progressed during the competition.
