It's just one level, but this demo for an upcoming platforming adventure about a lone candle trying to rescue its friends who have been snuffed out by ominous shadows still manages to tantalize.

Gorgeous! I Look forward to the final game. I would prefer a double-tap of a direction key for the speed boost opposed to the action key.

Nice game play. Great use off 3D without getting in the way too much. Love the candle lighting effects.

Can't wait to see the final game. Hopefully more than just a few levels.

In the unlocked area, I love the balloon. Nice surprise.

Cool game, it loaded fine for me, but it worked a little slow at times (I'm using a macbook pro, so not necessarily a high-end computer) You could probably leave out the cutscene at the beginning, it didn't add much for me. I love the metroidvania style gameplay, and I didn't notice the map at first, so I was confused, but then I got through it pretty quickly when I saw the map. Also, you should maybe say that you can double jump, I was stuck because I didn't know. (but maybe I'm dumb)

I reached the lantern in the last "lava" temple before the camp, but you can't reach it because the overhang is in the way.

Is that deliberate?

The hell... I can't even get to the first candle I should light... The space between the last platform and the one with the candle on it is too big, I can't jump over.

Since nobody else has mentioned it, I'm sure I'm doing something wrong - but what?

Aha. You can double jump... Was this mentioned somewhere in the game, or was I supposed to find it out myself?

Very fun level. I'm frustrated near the end, though.

The timing needed to land in a safe spot after the explosive barrels blow up is tough, and I hate having to replay the entire level to try again (four times up to that point so far, no luck)

Ok, major annoyance here. The ol "you take 5 steps after jumping bit" makes it just simply an aggravation and a cheap way to add difficulty. In effect, it halves the safe landing area of any of the platforms.

Of course, you can adapt by pressing the opposite way you're jumping at just the last minute, but inevitably that leads to shorting your jump or landing and running backwards off the platform you just landed on.

Also, I hope the game have mappable keys. Not being able to up arrow for jump is just dumb. Once again, cheap difficulty by making everything except for run be on the left hand.

Now for the good: Beautiful game, great graphics and atmosphere. Apparently a lot of secrets, as I only found 4 idols, so that is good as well.

I figured out a way through after destroying the bridge of explosive barrels.

Above you, there are two destructible blocks with a small gap between them. If you can time a shot just right while jumping, it will slip between the blocks and hit the explosive barrel behind them. When that barrel explodes and destroys the blocks, you'll have a clear path.

Don't worry about ammo. Over to the left, under the stairs, there's a lever you can pull to spawn a +25 ammo pickup as many times as you want.

I didn't even think about going back once I got shoot.
Nor to use it there.

Thanks for helping me find my candle friend!

Shame it doesn't let you go by that.
I'd already found the balloon in my previous game.

Bill,
I think you actually have to do that to get past that area or at least it seems like you are meant to pass that area by doing so.

Barrels, lava, can't just far enough?

As Bill says you have to explode the one barrel. It is before the lava that is nigh impossible to jump over, but yes it is possible to jump over it is just not meant to be and you kind of have to get lucky to make it. Instead there is a barrel above you right before the lava pit, you have to shoot just right between the two holey boxes. It is actually kind of easy you can just hold the shoot until it works while jumping.

The lave pit that you can only get to after finding the 5 hidden candles as well as getting to the first of the other five right after the pit (that spot is so slippery and frustrating) The not knowing about the barrel and thinking it was just one of those impossible jumps made me quit that is until I figured out Bill's post, but then I got past that part and found the slippery area just after it and those two frustrating elements (long jump and slipping) really made me not want to play, otherwise the game was great.
