Wow! Complete reworking of the game

Reviewed By: diablo666 on 16 Sep 2021

I didn’t expect this. I thought we just changed the levels a little, but I was wrong. We changed the music (it’s new), all the levels (are passed in a different way), introduced “Helper Artifacts” into the game, as well as a lot of new features, a few new enemies, but what is clearly visible: “The non-linearity of the game”. You are free to start from what stage.

Each stage is each “its own test”. Either you will conquer this game, or it will conquer you. The difficulty is fair and fair. Plus, the final stage is kept secret until you pass the rest. Thus, there is even more motivation to go through it to the end.

If you win, you will have an artifact with a surprise. Each artifact has its own pros, you and cons. Use it wisely.

Is it different from the original? Completely! Recommend it to others? Yes
