Kings Field vibe, thats good!

The weeping angels are cacti now. I was not prepared for this.

I'm a bit hard-pressed for things to critique. The concept is great, the controls work well, the puzzles are satisfying to solve, and the cacti are scary! Seriously, cacti! Okay, so I'm a complete wimp for horror games, but still.

Man! Amazing game! Congrats on the sound effects and music, really nice stuff...

Should've played this game last, now I'm scared of cactii. :O

Yet another very well made jam game. I truly enjoyed the atmosphere. First you start off in a peaceful state. Everything is bright and you can take your time to learn how the level looks like. When the scary state begins you are being hunted by cactii in pots, casually jumping towards you (how else would they move? :D) when you're not looking. *

This game took a Slender concept and "cactified" it. And IMHO I enjoyed this game a lot more than I did any of the Slender games so far, and even introduced great puzzles and level design. I enjoyed the last few levels very much, especially the last one. Great job creators! I'd look forward to playing and testing more levels if you plan on continuing.

* This tiny detail of cactii jumping effect as they approach is what I specifically adored about this game. You didn't force any scary SFX like most horror games do, yet the tiny jumping sound when not looking did all the work of scarying me, especially when running away. Bravo!

If a level is too hard, you can skip it with the "Levels" option in the main menu (then use right arrow to choose your level). Make sure you give a try to the final level (level 7), it's a special one ;)

Can't fault this game at all. I vow to never turn my back on a cactus again!

I love it :)

Fantastic concept, execution, and aesthetics. Simple in essence, but with lots of potential. It will be hard to top this one!

I don't know how many levels are. I've played till lvl 4 when i stucked.

AWESOME visuals, a fun game, but the audio is really low, barely could hear it . But the gameplay is great, nice work here.
