A well made platformer that expects players to learn how each action work entirely.  Well done graphics too.

I'm not sure if this is a really hard game or if I'm just really bad at it. It's quite cool either way. The graphics are very lovey and the music is nice.

The intro cutscene really gave the game that "polished game incoming" feel.

It seemed like some hits weren't registering (or maybe some stuff takes multiple hits to burn?)

I only wish there was an indicator for how long you had left as a ghost.

Thank you for the feedback! Yeah in hindsight maybe I should have kept a clock or not had a timer at all, but I guess it also might have caused a few problems so maybe just a timer. I think some of the hits were because of slimes as they prevent fires, but can't hurt you. I should have made them glow blue when fire hit them...

I thought the game was a lot of fun. I really liked the sprite work, the music, and the responsive gameplay. The x's coming out of the spike trap was a nice touch. I didn't read the instructions ahead of time, so there were a few things I was confused by, like how revival worked. One criticism I had was that I felt that the broken up dialogue was a bit weird, and I would sometimes lose track of what was last said. https://youtu.be/GXdNA4Q5p9c

Yeah, I kind of wish itch had a way to display the page with all the information on the front page. It probably caused a number of people quite a number of problems. I am glad you had fun! Hopefully next time, if I do Dialogue, I can get that sort of thing fixed up.

I did a Twich stream of your game on Sunday 01/13/19 and I uploaded it to my YouTube channel today.

I recorded myself playing it for the first time and made commentary on how I thought it played and what I liked/didn't like.  I tried to be objective.  I'm trying to provide honest feedback and playtesting to indie devs.  The link is below.


Somehow I didn't see these here, oof. Thank you for the feedback!
