A classic indie game that set a milestone in the artistic genre, still plays well and holds its charm on Android devices, but it's in need of an update. While it plays just fine, frame rate when moving the camera is a bit choppy and if you zoom out you can see the rough edges of backgrounds that you're not supposed to. Needs to be updated for modern resolutions. Still enjoyable though.

This game has a wonderful aesthetic. Some sections were pretty hard (for me) combat-wise and some sections i wasn't terribly sure what to do/where to go. But haven't come across another game like it and enjoyed the game thoroughly all the way through. Its one I always think back on with fondness! Thank you devs for what I feel is a masterpiece ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Tragically, this labor of love has been left to languish. My 3 star rating is not because of the gameplay (it's neat!), or the story (it's good!), or the music (it's great!). It's for the fact that the game is seemingly no longer being updated for newer versions of Android. I'm lucky enough to be able to launch the game, but changing focus to anything else hard freezes it and makes the current session unrecoverable. Buy the game on Steam instead, or stream the album on Spotify and enjoy yourself
