There's a lot I like about this game and a lot that I don't.

Fist off, gawd damn is this game beautiful. The graphics, the intro, and especially the music. While there were a few uncapitalized pronoun "I"s in there, the intro was very nice. The backgrounds were also outstanding. The only graphical problem I wouldn't say that I  was completely satisfied with would be how the buttons don't look different when you mouse over them. That can really make a button that much more satisfying to press!

I will say that  the gameplay was seriously lacking from what I could  tell. I'm about 80% sure that the ghosts can't hurt you, only the barrels, and so it seems a little weird that there's an entire mechanic for fighting them. That's assuming that the ghosts can't hit you, of course.

I was never able to get more than five seconds into the game. No matter what I did, the game would start over. It was as if my hit box was gigantic behind the screen. After maybe six minutes of dying over and over again for no reason, I had to stop. If this is some kind of metaphor, I'm afraid that it's lost on me.

I'm almost certain that this game has more content to it, and if that one problem with the resets was fixed, this could be a beautiful game.

I'm glad you liked it. About the wrong spelling in the game, I'm not a native English speaker, and I'm still learning the language. Sorry about this. About the graphics, I'm glad you liked it as well. And I'm now aware that the game has a lot of issues that I need to work on. And I will publish the final version of the game with the necessary corrections and make it "playable". Thank you for your support. I appreciate it.
