Really good game! Is there any way to avoid being hit by the green wave attack from the crystal? I also couldn't find any way to quit the game...

Developer

Hi! You can dash through the green wave attack from the crystal. As for quitting, you gotta just alt + f4 haha my bad. The game saves every room though, so you won't lose any progress.

I was playing on a Mac ;-)

This game is awesome! I spent a very long time on it.

The boss battle was fantastic! I loved how he changes attacks after his health gets low. I've tried Hyper Light Drifter before and it gives that feel with the top-down and dash ability. Well done though, I can tell a lot of work went into this game. I'd recommend finding your own twist on the style though. There's a lot that can be expanded upon and even ways you could improve upon what's already been done. Best of luck to you! And congrats on finishing a year long project!!!

Developer

Thanks so much for playing, and thanks for the kind words. I agree that there's a lot that I could have done to find a more unique style. I feel that I may have borrowed too much from existing games like Hyper Light Drifter, but I still really appreciate you playing. Were you able to finish the game by the way (just out of curiosity)?

I wish I could! But no, I did not finish the whole game. I definitely raged trying to get the key to the left. I got the one to the right though. I feel like the dashing controls weren't always consistent. Like sometimes if I did it too quick it wouldn't register and I'd fall into the abyss.

Ahh I got you (no problem!). I definitely agree that dashing across platforms could be a little finicky.  I could have given the player a little more wiggle room when going from platform to platform (I'm pretty sure Hyper Light does this haha). Thanks so much for playing though!

Good job, it's a nice game.
