The One of Really Recomended Homebrew GamesReviewed By: ananda on 03 Jul 2014
The description and the screenshots are really describing what the game did. It’s really has an awesome tilesets, really good musics, and simple gameplay. I like how the player swap with the ghost or something when you press any trigger button such as jump or fire.
The level design itself is pretty creative, sometimes it will be really hard, but not frustating. The chance you got stuck in the game is really big, fortunately there was a restart option when you hit the pause button. But as usual, the life will be decreased each time you restart the puzzle.
The enemy design is pretty simple, and so does the dodging method. There’s no additional AI besides the bouncing horizontally or vertically, and the hitboxes sometimes is smaller than the player.
Overall, it’s one of really recomended homebrew games, and I really appreciated the gameplay creativity.
