Very nice game. Got a lot hard from level 3 on.
I like the idea a lot.

This ROCKS! :D +1 for the Metallica reference. Great soundtrack.

Love the Storytelling by Storytelling, and the nice progression of age through the levels.

Who presses Z to punch, tho? I guess you gotta be more Metal than me...

Pretty fun, a little laggy on my machine! The window was a bit off too!
Other than that great work!

I enjoyed it a lot, but it was quite short sans the cutscenes (which by the way should be skippable, as they might be annoying when replaying). Aside from Iron Maiden members having no hitboxes, this gaem is very well made.

Thanks for the feedback!
@Starlight - The cutscene is skippable to the extend that you can switch the light at any time. The others are more difficult to skip without causing the player to skip on accident.

Audio doesn't work in Safari but it works fine in Chrome (same with a lot of other entries). Loved the graphics, gameplay, and the surprise ending.

Dec 12, 2016 @ 7:53pm

Just epic ending

Good music, good visual, good sound, but the gameplay is not very various. Good game.

Great work with the original guitar score! It would be good if it let you repeat a level when you fail, or at least fast-forward the cutscenes - that last level was pretty tough!

I love it. I don't think you could ask any more from a little game like this. It feels complete.

Thanks, that was very funny. And this idea with a kid playing main theme is awesome and touching. Really nice detail!
