They want to charge people money for this?

huh... unlike that pathetic mailboy game they wanted to charge people for, I'd actually buy this, it's cool, challenging, and innovative. however, considering how short the 2 demo levels are, I could only imagine how short the game is.

yeah, same guy as last poster, it's $15... it's something I'd buy like 5-10 bucks for on xbox live or something of that nature, but just on the computer... idk. I don't wanna pay that much for something seemingly so short

I think it's definitely worth the money, the whole indie games scene is raving about this game today!

I'm giving up on this one.

I really didn't like this game.

Thijs said...

Nowhere near as good as Creeperworld, which is actually cheaper than this. The concept is not new either.

Someone(haha) said...

I dont like it at all! It screwed up my comp. boohhooo ;-(

Someone(haha) said...

ps. what is creeperworld? sounds fuuuunnnnnn >:-)

JJ said...

say what you want, I love it!

Margaret said...

I just don't know because I would play it until I finished if I bought it and just like the other things he's made its OMGS!insanely HARD. I must be a dork because it was so difficult for me to do the demo.

I don't think I want this.

Lichen-Believe it or not- I don't know how to twitter-I'm fairly new at all of this.Bonte games was about the first thing I ever saw on the "BOX"!!!And that was by accident!!!

I wouldn't pay for it but it's pretty cool.

Finished the two levels. The storyline is impossible to follow. Had to try a few levels numerous times. I like the unlimited lives and lots of checkpoints.

Zenrage said...

the play control is too weak for it to be worth this much. sorry.

ew grosss I wouuld never pay for a game like this! sheesh! this is a time waster and I would rate it 2 outta 100

This was a cool game. I didn't even get frustrated with the hard parts, unlike some of Terry's other stuff, and a lot of other hard platformers.

It took me two hours to finish, including finding all the trinkets. I haven't tried any of the extra challenges. Considering a 2h movie is $20, it's a fair price. Don't be superficial - try it.

My favorite part was when save points became something you wanted to AVOID. Clever!

Bart said...

I bought it, played it and loved it! After all I have to support my fellow indie game developers :)

I played the whole version of this game, and I must say, it's well worth the $15. The challenges can be harsh, but you don't feel frustrated because of the plethora of checkpoints as well as the great music pushing you onwards.

It replicates the retro video game style perfectly, using a Commodore 64 loading screen and slightly slippery physics. Though the music is chiptune, it's amazing.

In short? Keep trying those difficult puzzles and enjoy the music!
