About this game

DERE EVIL EXE is both a terrifying thriller with a gripping story and an unorthodox retro platformer with unique puzzles and obstacles.

In DERE EVIL EXE, you step into the tiny shoes of a silent hero named 'Knightly'. Knightly must jump, run, and manipulate environments in order to survive the heart-racing journey through a stunning pixel art world.

Within surreal structures lurk dangerous creatures known as 'corruptions'. They take the form of their creator's greatest fears. Their creepy creator, sporting a cunning visage of cheerfulness, hides in plain sight as she watches her prey fall deeper into her traps.

Good ideas, mixed execution. I played this a few years ago and didn't complete it, so I wanted to give it another go. Nice graphics and sound, and the gameplay is difficult but fun. If you want to make a rage game, ok. If you want to make a spooky rage game that's also cool. Just don't throw me an ad nearly every time I die. This game requires constant trial and error and making me sit through ads makes me want to play it even less. Yes I can pay to remove them, but they seem poorly integrated.

This was a very short game. I wasn't sure if the ending was really the ending or if I was missing something, but it appears to actually be over. I finished in about half and hour. The graphics are nice, jumpscares are fun but not too scary, and the story is simple, meta, and easy to enjoy. I've seen complaints about seeing too many ads, but I only saw one. I think I died maybe 30-40 times? The difficulty does not scale slowly; rather it starts way too easy and then after a certain point, spirals into Meat Boy levels of difficulty. I don't mind this; I enjoy challenging platformers. I enjoyed the use of multiple mechanics. I think my personal favorite in this one was the swipe-to-move in the later part of the game. It was neat to see how the cannons were implemented to be activated with the jump button and required sharp attention to make sure it was aimed where I wanted it to avoid shooting myself. I think my biggest beef with this game is the controls in the d-pad sections. I found myself often going right when I meant to go left, which often meant instadeath. This is a complaint I have with many games featuring the on-screen directional pad, rather than something unique to this game. To the dev: Clever, well-made and very enjoyable, would love to see more levels. I enjoyed playing your game, but you might want to double check level 2, it might have played you. 😉 A solid 4 out of 5 that could be 5 out of five if the controls were a little easier to use.

I really like this game, but I absolutely hate jump scares, however, if you like jump scares, and psychology horror, I really recommend this game, think ddlc with platforming and a different story. I got frustrated with the platforming at times, but it was not to difficult. This might be a glitch, but at the end on level 3, the right button stops working for a second, when the glitches show up. But I don't know. Thanks for reading. 💕
