This is awesome! I really enjoyed playing it. Haven't made it through the Dark World yet, but I'll keep at it! Absolutely love how the music changes as well with the graphics, and the music was quite catchy.

Not sure if this is a runtime problem for me (running under Linux with Wine), but sometimes when the graphics would change, my view would be reset.  I also do wish there was also a little something extra to indicate you've been hit. Possibly a slight delay before graphics shift (likely just a handful of frames) with some screen shake or something, and maybe just the slightest invulnerability after being hit.

Excellent work! Had other people in my house looking over my shoulder while I played ;D You wove mechanics, theme, and visual/audio together well :D

I really enjoy the concept of the game, it is interesting. I spent a good time trying to find all keys ;)

Sometimes it is a bit difficult to see assets when only one heart is left, you have to be careful not to die. Sounds really help here to spot incomming skulls !

Awesome, thanks for playing!

LOVE the mechanic of the graphics changing as your health goes down. It looks amazing and is a fantastic surprise the first time you experience it. Actually makes me want to die to just to see the game in all of its different modes. Just an absolutely killer idea. Speaking of killer, this is really hard! But I'll for sure be playing this game until I can beat it. Great work.

BTW, my submission is a first-person shooter game as well. ;)

Wow ! This is great :D
Just a little thing, the "exit" button on the main menu starts a new game :p

Haha, ok thanks. I'm sure there's a bunch of little things like that I'll have to fix.
