Very beautiful, but also very punishing. I like a good challenge but this was a bit beyond me.

Congrats on clearing the LD48!

Wow! Easily one of my favorites so far! Great music, great atmosphere and a challenging and fun game. Took me a while to figure out what I was supposed to do since i missed reading it in the beginning, and some of the jumps were bit hard, but not too bad. Would be fun to see multiple worlds with a bit more to the story maybe.

Cool game! The jumps over the spikes are really tricky and I wasn't sure what determined how the enemy robots moved, but I liked it. And the music was neat.

Very nice game - everything worked together very well! It's brutally hard, but cooled down, came back and finished it...

I think you succeeded very well at your Filmation engine imitation, because the game reminded me of Alien 8, which Wikipedia says was also built with Filmation!

The only complaint I have is the controls - they felt weird (felt like it was rotated 90 degree to movement, but that may just be mental short-circuit on my part) and I got killed numerous times going from room to room due to lag holding down a button and lagging on loading.

Quite nice :)
Solid little game, however some of the spike jumps are really borderline hard.

Hi, thank you for all comments... it seems that again I made a little too hard game :(

@mwest... thank you, Alien 8 was the second Filmation game so for me your comment is a great compliment.

Regarding controls you are right, it should have at least two options I will implement that in a second version

@randomnine the robots use a left-hand rule or right-hand rule. they should spin in the direction of the rule, but I couldn't implement it on time.

Nice game and I didn't think it was too hard, the only real danger is the double spike jump. Good story!

I really enjoyed this game, but I had to play it several times because I kept dying >_>. The gameplay reminded me of the games Solstice and Equinox, which I like. The ending was sad :(
