Very nice, well made game! I included it in my LowRezJam compilation, if you’d like to take a look :)

Host

It is a nice game. Very weird choice of keyboard controls though (Alt, Ctrl, Shift). I ended up bugged out somehow (playing the fixed version), I got killed by wall spikes and was left on a blue screen with "SANDALS" written on it! >.< Good looking though, and very nice audio!

Developer

Thanks, yes the fixed version is still far from bug free.  :)

We are going to release a new version with more fixes and updated content.

Oh boy, this is so cool! Really challenging and well designed! The soundtrack gets you completely in the mood for this one, and totally fits the visual style of the game! :P I did have some bugs (death + teleport, some graphical glitches), but overall, playing it was a great experience! Great job there!

Thanks very much! :)

We are going to sort these issues out and release an update with more bug fixes and more content after the voting is closed. 

Merciless game! But it is really cool how you managed to do an actual metroidvania for the jam. Good work!

Developer

Thanks!

Impressive scope and nice touches with the audio and levels! Funny with  "real-life" sounds and nice soundtrack.

The platformer feel was a little off - probably more floating jumps would have been better. I played a bugged version where you could fly somewhat, but I guess you fixed that in the post-jam version.

Also,  the graphics become a little bit garbled when using a lot of colors and low resolution, even though they probably look great with higher res, it felt a little bit off with 64x64

Developer

Thanks for the review, very useful feedback!

Yes, we left two skills (feather fall and double jump) turned on at startup in the jam version by accident. You are supposed to get them by finding the Wings of Icarus and the Sandals on Hermes. Fixed in the post-jam version.
We are going to release an update after the voting's closed with an updated level. Hopefully you will find more platforming challenges in that.

Wow, I'm impressed at how much you were able to put in this.

A little hard for me to play though, my computer was registering a ghost left input (problem on my end I assume). As long as I kept moving no problem but if I let go of any directional keys the character would run right.

Developer

Thanks!

Haven't seen that bug. Are use using WASD, cursor keys or a controller?

This is great! I don't know how you completed it so fast but it's definitely something I'll be going back to. 

Developer

Thanks, glad you like it! We barely managed to finish it on time. :)
