You've got more than nine lives and you're going to need them in this punishing platformer. Use jet-packs, teleporters, gravity switches and much, much more to overcome fiendish and deadly hazards in your journey to save the world. I think you can do it, even if the narrator is... less than encouraging.Read More

walks the line between too-cute-to-quit and "I WILL END YOU"
Hmmm....sounds like cats in general. XD
There seems to be a bug with
The Crossroads. Going past the left side checkpoint, then the right, and back to the left sets the checkpoint to the left. Even if you go past the right side checkpoint again.
Well, it seems this game has no save function. That's pretty much inexcusable for a game of this length.
Aside from that, it seems (as far as I got) like a pretty good example of how a game can be high-difficulty, but not cheap, or as some call it, punishing. The platforming is slightly slippery, but the level designs are generally put together with that in mind. The game is naturally fast due to the slipperiness, so the primary challenge is knowing just how and how much to slow down to get around the obstacles.
got 90 deaths 50 odd crystals in. some of the levels were downright unfair (the one where it throws you up without letting yousee what was coming), to the level i had to rage quit in... where you had to some how trigger the 'sideways' spikes so you could climb the wall they were on. So jump down, run UNDER falling spikes, go up a wall avoiding fixed spikes run DOWN a tunnel to trigger more falling spikes... then deal with spikes that fly sideways? double jump... barely triggers them. wall jump? launches you into their firing lane... gave up.
How do you cross the level that has teleportation portals? I went to a room with the upside down portal, but I can't seem to enter the portal.
Nevermind. Got it.
Use the second portal at the beginning of the level. But for some reason, it didn't work for me the first few times
Very nice game. I thought the controls were just slightly loose given the precision required on some of the levels. I really appreciated the difficulty towards the end - it challenges your instinct to rage quit at points and rewards you for completing. I would slightly change the last boss - when you hit him for the last time, you don't bounce back up on to the ledge as with previous times - you fall through. I had to beat him a couple times (and die about 50 times) to defeat him and survive. Also, you might consider changing the color of missiles - sometimes the lighter shades don't show up clearly (at least on my screen) and they're hard to see moving around. Looking forward to the next iteration! -M
could anyone give me insight on how to defeat the boss? one of the comments said he hit him, but when i touch him i die, and i thought if you keep dodging his missiles/bombs something would happen eventually. I have come so far, please give me some insight!! thanks!
To Asheil, to get past the sideways spikes run all the way up the opposite wall(above the tunnel).
This seems like a pretty fun game for those who like a challenge. It's hard, but some people like playing difficult games for the (illusory) sense of achievement at the end, and such people are clearly the target audience here.
However, I had several complaints.
Turning off the music makes the music really quiet, but it's still audible.
The "taunt the player for dying" thing gets really old really fast. It's like the game developer is bragging about the difficulty of their game. But it's not hard to make a difficult game! What's hard is making a fun game.
Several of the challenges have more to do with not being able to see past the edge of the screen than the difficulty of executing the correct moves.
This is a matter of taste, but the purple arrows seem to do the same thing as the yellow arrows, except they don't reorient the screen. So essentially these make the interface more difficult to use rather than making the level itself more difficult.
Melanie - for final boss,
dodge the colored projectiles and bombs, then jump on him when he hovers near the precipice.
