Liked the parallax effect on the BG. I fell like the worst part of the game are the spike not because they kill you but because anywhere on them kills you. I feel like logic say the should only hurt you from pointy end lol .also on level 4 I died and didn't get a restart.  an pause menu with a level restart can help for stupid glitches like that. over all pretty solid Maybe slow down the monster and add small enemies too. good job.

Haha graphics are cute.Also i like the movement of the player.

I'm glad that it looks like you're going to continue this after the jam bc this is a fun platformer! My tips: blind jumps are bad! At least with one-hit kills.

Thank you for your input! We are planning on removing the blind jumps in the post rating update. Thank you so much for playing, and we are glad you had fun!

Well this is indeed a very good submission as graphic, audio and level design overall are really fine. Also fits the theme well with that giantass-skeleton-thing following you. We may say that lacks some original mechanic but I don't care much as I got a good time playing the levels. Very good!

Got a bug at the fourth level: I have died off screen and reset the level didn't reset.

Liked the humor and atmosphere. Levels are not bad, but clunky at times - colliders are too rectangular and strict, corridor ceilings are too low, have to jump blindly without knowing where is the safe spot to land, etc. Also they feel very similarly, so I gave up eventually (but I still won at first playthrough with chicken ending :P).


Got a crash, when in level with two monsters I pressed W after dying.

And in the same level, I went to the left (after reloading the game) and fell from the level.

Developer

Yes that crash you got was a bug when you die and try to read the sign at the same time.  I did not realize the bug happened on the entire map. Thank you so much for your feedback, all of the colliders in the game were precision ones for the spikes. We are going to patch the game after rating end to improve the level design and fix a couple bugs. Thank you so much for telling me about how you went left so that we could make sure that players could not do that in the patch for after rating ends. Thank you so much for playing our game and giving us your criticism!

Its too hard for me but I think it could be a good game :)

Developer(+1)

Thank you so much for your feedback! We are actually already planning on releasing a patch the day after the game jam rating ends to make it slightly easier.

Submitted

Developer

I liked your game. It's very difficult but that's good for replayabilitty! The art is simple but very nice.

Developer

Thank you for playing our game! thank you for you feedback and we are glad you enjoyed it.I personally really liked crypt climber and I thought it was fun! the soundtrack was really good too!

Submitted

I love the graphics and the little details, its definitely hard, but I love running away from the giant skeleton!

Developer (1 edit)

Thank you so much for playing and rating! Im glad you had fun running from the giant skeleton, and Shadows really fun to play!

Submitted

Thanks!

I liked this a lot. Great work with the details like the screen shake and the particle effects while moving

Thank so much for playing, I really liked shadowend manor as well. Thank you for your feedback.

First I went to the left and was mocked! Then the book was having a serious attitude! Then came Skelton and the damned spikes! I was FURIOUS!  But it was all worth it in the end, when they said I was cool, so we're on good terms now.

Challenging but also rewarding! Graphics are nice, sound effects great, music was also goo (albeit I wasn't a fan of the title screen theme) and gameplay feels pretty smooth. 

Challenging but rewarding ^^

hahaha you found the secret ending we got you. Thank you so much for your feedback we are very happy that you enjoyed out game.

Submitted

The sign at the very begging takes away from the spooky atmosphere.  

Developer

Thanks for playing! The second ending takes away from the spookyness factor more, so i think its fine.
