I also included this game in an article of my favorites here!

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

Made a series here is the first video -

Hi there. Just wanted to say your game featured on my "Even More Modern Indie Gameboy Games" video :)


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


Pretty awesome job here! 5/5 love it


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