I figured out WASD to move, but X to jump & K to shuriken is not intuitive!

Hi there. Just wanted to say your game featured on my "Even More Modern Indie Gameboy Games" video :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O4nlfYJ3iu8

Awesome game! I got to the end with an 102% complete score, is there more in it I missed?
Now while I wait for an extension of this game, I have to run it just so I can listen to the music. :)
Where can we get to the music and author? Cheers!

Amazing game! =D

damm good!

Probably the best game I played from this GBJam, awesome chiptune, well though and polished main mechanic.

I love this game. It's rather difficult and very unforgiving, but I had to beat it on normal and hard to feel like I really beat it. Now I'm trying to get my death count as low as possible. Very replay-able and super fun.

Fun game! I beat it on Hard Mode. I only wish I got a reward for beating it on hard (new shuriken graphic, hardcore mode where there are no save points, special message on completion, etc.)

loved it

Finally, after 48min and 146 deaths, I managed to beat it on hard :)

Just awesome graphics, animations, sound and gameplay.

This entry stole my 5 stars rating!

It's hard to believe this was developed in only 10 days. Nice execution. Please release more levels!

Good visuals, good control scheme(s), good music/sfx. Very much a gameboy-like entry. Only a few submissions are of this quality. I did not enjoy the gameplay however as there was a delay that was most noticeable when trying to jump or throw your weapon. I saw no option to disable v-sync or any such feature that leads to this kind of delay.

Lovely looking, fun game! I included it in my compilation video series of all of the GBJam 5 games, if you'd like to take a look :)

Very good game with tight controls. Loved the visuals and music. Kept me going for a long while..

Really solid game! I love the way the music syncs at the beginning of a boss battle. This one really nails the game boy feel!

Wish I could play this with a controller, otherwise it's a perfect little game :D

Awesome! I love everything in that game (palette, tiny sprites, metroidvania formula etc.). Next time, add a map ;)

Amazing music

Glad it ended up with a better name than "Untitled Platformer!"

Very cool idea, this was a really fun one!

Well... Just went through the whole thing and it was REALLY good.

I'm not surpirsed, i've played some of your other games and they were really nice too, so...

Keep up the good work. =)

Solid game but I have to say, the level design is confusing. Without a world map to track your progress, these kind of open world-ish game really suffer. Also shurikens falling in spikes is a big issue because you cannot recover them essentially.They should just warp back to you imo. Cute graphics as always, coming from you. I like how your art style in game jam is never inconsistent, always the same cute little aesthetic.

Great!

This is freaking incredible. Genuinely amazing work!

I can't believe this only took you 10 days! The movement and shuriken-throwing felt amazing, and the frequent save rooms and infinite lives kept the game challenging without being frustrating. Really spectacular work!
