WOW, my favorite yet! The choice of colors and neat level design! Bravo! The only bad thing was that it was little to hard though, maybe add some more time at the beggining?

This is an absolutely great game. It looks very easy at the beginning but it has potential to despair because the close timer. Very good, difficult is always good.. ^_^

Nice game! Love the art direction :) Plus every level is quite challenging, I couldn't finish the game yet...

Monsters are somehow hypnotizing because I always step on them.
Fun little game. Is there an end? How many levels?

Thanks for all the comment. I don't wanted the game to be too easy, it's really small (only 10 levels) but you should not make any mistake to finish it.
For a first time, I'm kinda proud. If I had more time, I would have added random levels and more traps and monster.

I took an arrow to the chest-

Great game- very well done. Got heard pretty fast - I wished you could respawn from the room change button so you didnt have to go back to the first part every time- we are a spoiled generation.

I enjoyed the artwork and the Audio as well- nice1

Well made and everything fits together well, controls are nothing special but well suited. very classic feel.

And after making this you say my game is kinda hard? :D
Couldn't beat it, but the it feels very solid. Like the colors and typography.

oh! Nice! And it's also online! Can I find it on indiexpo? I'm making videos about the games of this Jam, but only about the games hosted also on indiexpo! Tell me if you will add it, so I can include it in my next video ;)

@haddy22 Thanks. I know the game is quite challenging but it's not fun if it's too easy ;)

@dv49 I played it so much I find it easy now. I'm not even sure someone manage to finish it

@Greek85 Glad you liked the game and want to make a video of it, but I wont upload it on IndeExpo. He's already on LudumDare and, maybe I'll upload it on game jolt but that's it.

@StarshipTrooper0589 Thank you so much!

Very nice game!! I loved the aesthetics and gameplay. Awesome game!

Dec 18, 2016 @ 4:20pm

The game has a nice overall look, the style ties together nicely. Audio fitted the game well. The gameplay was also good fun, although I'd have preferred not to have to restart every time so I could see more of the game.

This game is awesome! I really like the graphics style. The controls are intuitive (i prefer space to return, but that's just me). The music is kind of repetitive, some variations would have been nice. Never the less, the learning curve and the gameplay are fun!

Nice graphic nice music but why should i repeat anything that i already beaten and Press start is really bad thing to write i see this game second time and only because of reading description i could start it at all...

Good ol'fashioned game! Great execution, and a nice art with again ol'fashion colors. Prety well paced, I really enjoyed playing it! Well done :)

One of the best entries I've rated! Well done. Loved the graphics, it was so consistent, nice palette. Loved the chiptune music too. Pretty innovative. Great game, you should definitely continue development!

Awesome entry! The game has good graphic style, caused by cool using of a limited color palette and pixel art. Music is also nice, but quite loud. The gameplay is good, however, I didn't have enough patience to complete the game.
It is a really good game (not only for the first participation)! Keep it up!

Thanks for all your comments. For a first time, I'm pretty happy with the result. I'll definitely keep making games (I'm already working on something bigger and more personal). It was an awesome experience.
