So much has changed with this game now, and for the better! Controls and main mechanic have changed, levels are now way bigger and more challenging...some bugs still but happy with where it is at for now as a demo.

- Great platforming arcade action combined with underground adventure.

He Aaron, great platform game, Just spent 30 minutes playing. Some things I encountered, When you go back through a door it puts you at the starting door, not sure if this was meant to happen. re-spawning can be a fit funny, some times I would fly out of my starting position, and on one map it glitched and I spawned inside the ledge killing me instantly.

The word boxs are all smushed up but that may be my resolution, Im running 1080? also the sides are cut off.

Really fun game, only thing I can recommend is a reset button so you dont have to start again when it glitches.

The area with the doors is very confusing but I think its because the symbols are messed up due to the res, Ima have a play around with it.
Awesome stuff

Hey Tk0m.

Thanks a lot for the kind words and the feedback, really appreciate it! Also spending 30 mins in it, very cool, thanks!

An oversight from me, the text should be able to be read at 1920x1080 on 'fantastic' setting. I'll be removing it for a sensible dialogue system of some sort soon enough.

Yeah some of the keys to doors and symbols came out funny...I'll fix it up too!
