Very nice, reminds me of Grue (the roguelike). Funny how sometimes the minimap reveals more than your actual view. Fantastic atmosphere with the music.

The games title fits perfect!

Simple and fun, I'm impressed with all the mechanics involving the "light left system". Remind me Adventure from Atari 2600. Awesome!

You know I never thought of Adventure when I was  making this, my mind was stuck on Rogue haha. Maybe I should add some Easter eggs, then it'd really be like Adventure ;)

I  really started to panic when i had almost no light left. Great game.

Developer

Haha I can imagine. Thanks  :)

Interesting concept I liked the fact that the less light you have the closer you are to lose and the hardest it is to survive because of the visibility. Maybe you could add some more elements to make the game more dynamic, like more objects or enemies, but the game is pretty good as it is.

Thanks for the compliments, yeah it could  definitely  use more mechanics. I just wanted to get it in before  the deadline though haha.  I'll add  that to the list of things to improve upon 👍
