Come for pixel art, stay for the puzzles I'm loving the game. I love it because of the fantastic pixel art and not despite of it. I like the sound and what was done here with gameplay is amazing. I love the puzzles and some were downright devious and there were enough creatures to keep it from feeling lonely without too much twitchy action. Even the overworld required some puzzling thought to make the Lost Palace appear. I beat all the dungeons and would have liked an endgame or victory dance. I'd pay for this. Make it a buck and I'd support it.
Amazing though sometimes frustrating game Stunning, Academy ratio 1200 pixel graphics. Fantastic dungeon / puzzle design. But fidgety controls that make it difficult to accurately choose between turning your character and firing your weapon. Maybe have a dedicated crossbow button outlined in the black space on the sides? Or at least the option for one. That would make a huge difference for me at least.
Incredible The pixels lured me in; my thirst for nostalgic boxes is unquenchable. Yet it was the puzzles that really shined. I've played many puzzle games in the past, but this game managed to make me put it down to think about the puzzles. Masterful, and I hope to see more works from this publisher in the future, pixel-puzzles or not
Mainly a game of nemory and, slightly, reflexes. Edit: actually, as I got to the lost castle, i realized that the controls are pretty awful. I'd recommend using the normal control scheme, dpad on the left, fire on the right, action in the middle. I am physically unable to complete the two respawning slimes section due to such inconvenient controls.
Check out my walkthrough on PoG Vlog! At first I was put off by the graphical style and difficult controls, but after playing for a short time I grew to enjoy the look of the game and found the puzzles to be fun and challenging. Give this game a chance because it is well worth the initial devotion. Now I wish there were more levels.
It took a few minutes two to figure out how to play or what to do, once I got it I loved it. Sound effects are very fitting too.
Bug fix for older Android versions (2.1 and 2.2).
