I´d pay a bit for a gamepad-control :)

Great polish on this game!

I love the game. Great job on the level design. That's personally my favorite part because I like designing levels myself. Great controls, love the secrets (nice and easy to find but hard to spot), I love the music to it just sounds crisp and clean, and over all Great Game GG.

Very, very nice game, I love all!

Very nice game. Our German-language review can be found in our recorded livestream starting at 01:18:40. Automatic subtitles are also available (turn on, if necessary). Subscription to our YouTube or Twitch channel is welcome. 🙂

nice game, sadly I somnehow missed like 3 gems in the first level, otherwise I would hve perfecte all 3 levels :-)

Nice little game, i enjoyed it.

Graphics and gameplay are polished.

Well done!!


wow, your graphics are so arcade, i love your stuff! 🙌


Looking at some of the videos, I realized it was going at like 4x the speed it was supposed to when I played. I legit had speed hacks enabled some how lmao.

This is more of a personal choice rather than a problem with the game, but moving a platformer character with the right hand and jumping/shooting with the left feels clunky to me. Other than that, I really enjoyed it.

Thats standard platformer controlls. Hollow knight, rainworld, meat boy(i think), and basically any indie platformer you can name.

Made a video

game mechanics are awesome, good art and the level design is cool! well done!

the game is quite good,can't believe i spent 45 mins on this game.It is hard to get used to the control. :D

the game is the best i've ever played on itch.io. The controls are responsive, the feedback is great, the level designs are genius, the bosses amazing and the graphics are simply mind-blowing. Everything is so polished. I love this game and I wish there was more.


I mingled a bit with the game! Nice with fluid controls response!  I thought the first boss was harder then the second one...I never got to a possible third one.:) 


This game feels really cohesive and polished! I'm really impressed. I featured it in my video today!


I think you got some really solid mechanics working, feels fluid and the pixel art is awesome

This is really fun to play.  Really nailed the asthetic... moar pleez.

i like it 

Very impressive.

Fun, with good pixelart and tight controls. And the boomerang is a refreshing choice of weapon. :)

Awesome Game

I'll keep playing this :D Here's my walk through the beginning:

Great game! After finishing the game, I had to retry the first area to find all the secrets. For me the first boss was much harder than the others? Also it was my only struggle point the first playthrough. The pattern is just hard to understand, which felt like a small puzzle. The second playthrough I beat it on first try. Really cool game, I had a lot of fun :) Love the art as well, but that's a constant in your games.

Astonishing game! Great level design, so polished! Fun and satisfying! :D Love it!

That was a blast. You put a lot of effort into level design. The final boss was a little bit uncreative, but otherwise absolutely top-notch.

I never heard of Defold before, is it good?
