I gave it a shot, and at first I thought it was pretty good, a little challenge that was still pretty fun, but once I got to the boss it felt like the difficulty was cranked to 11. I didn't realize until like and hour of playing later, that I was fighting him wrong, mainly cause I guess I probably assumed I wouldn't be able to climb the walls of inside a lab like i could a rock wall or a tree on the way getting there. I got some little points that I think could make the game less rage inducing, and more fun and balanced (and maybe small bit more stream friendly for the download version). Sorry if it seemed I was being too critical, I was just very exhausted and the difficulty caught me by surprise, but I did actually enjoy the gameplay and the style. Overall, great job! I hope the video is at least helpful if not entertaining.

Gave it a go...
Incredibly fun game, although difficult, I managed to finish.
omfg this is amazing.
I got stuck in the options menu.
This is really cool! I'll have to play when I got some more time. Do you mind if ppl stream your game?
Of course not, it would be fun to watch. :D
Incredibly captivating! I loved it from the heart. Would not it be possible to make a version for Android?
It would be possible but I'm not very interested. I don't think an action game like this would work well on mobile too :p
Awesome game, reminds me of the old school Ninja Gaiden a bit! :3
Instant classic in my book.
Damn that's good.
Really nice looking game. i love the pixel style. it's also FREAKING DIFFICULT. great job
Thanks for playing it, that was super fun to watch! You actually did pretty well. By the way, sorry for the missing description for sub-weapons, looks like I accidentally removed it when editing the page earlier.
Loved how it actually seems like a shippable SNES game, the game is very challenging and feels very well polished! :) Thank you for this experience!
Jump Attack is so coool !!!
