This is a fantastic freeware game, which you can download at Buster’s site. The story is basically that long ago, a great demon threatened to devour all the world. A Hero rose up to fight the demon, and sealed it in a huge labyrinth, and sealed away its power in seven crystal orbs. Now that demon was arisen and seeks revenge.
…Naturally, you play the demon. You go through the labyrinth and collect all the orbs for a final showdown with the mystical hero, who is still alive for some reason. With every orb you find, you regain one of your lost abilities, which enables you to reach previously unreachable areas. Sound familiar? Well it’s not, god damn it.
I wish there was more to say about it, but that’s pretty much the game you’ve got here. It’s crazy easy to pick up and play, since the game provides some great in-game help along the way. Just push Up to flip switches, kay? The level design is just brilliant, there’s a lot of replay value (based on your final rank, anyways), the music is catchy, and the graphics are very clean and nice. God damn, people. Just go play this game.
