This game is nothing short of amazing. It has everything a platformer should have, and then some.

This is one of those games that everyone should play at least once. Truly a masterpiece.

One of the most amazing games I've ever played. It has everything you might want from a platformer adventure and more: weapon leveling and customization, alternate endings and even hardcore difficulty epilogue. And it is free. So go and grab that one, you won't regret any minute of playing this game.

Great story, adorable characters, great gameplay, great music, great art, lots of choices to make, multiple endings, innovative weapon leveling mechanic, cross-platform, free, just an overall excellent game.
I haven't played it for a while, but I can't remember anything negative to say about it, except maybe that it gets pretty hard at the end, especially if you go to "hell".
Of all the GNU/Linux games that have been coming out lately, I almost regret that this one is free, since it's easily one of the most worth paying for!

This game remains one of the best action/platformers I have ever played. The graphics are simple, but coherent and beautiful. The level design is superb, giving you expansive areas to explore and rediscover once you have new abilities later in the game. The characters are unique and endearing. Each one will leave their own impression and many people may find themselves really caring for them, however strange they are. The story makes great use of this, tugging at the player's emotions in many key moments of the game. The music is well-made and matches the style of the game, being suitably retro. Controls and gameplay are absolutely perfect for a game of this type. The character moves smoothly and all of his actions are responsive. The best part of this game is that most people will need to play it two or three times to truly appreciate it. I highly recommend playing blind the first time and using a guide the second.

I finished this before it came out on Desura, It will always be worthwhile to play it with all of the work that Pixel put into this. If he really wanted to, Pixel could charge for this and I'm sure we'd all buy it.

Brilliant Metroidvania game with sleek-looking 8-bit art style, it's just absolutely lovable in every way.

This is one of my favorite games. There is an amazing variety of enemies and weapons, and it's just plain fun to play. The control takes a little getting used to at first (it's a bit floaty), but you'll get used it it quickly. I recommend everyone giving this a shot. Make sure you play it for at least 20 minutes, at you'll be hooked.

I must say it's like a "sweet times" on your PC, everything from the sound effects the music, graphics stroyline, characters...I love this game. Sure it is difficult but what isn't. I look up to the guy who made this game. Play it you won't be able to deny it's just that good. Lot's of quality work was put into making this game.
