Beautiful... Only one problem is there. It happens sometimes that you are getting stucked on the boat. Mostly Pon runs there and you are been able to jump. But you arent been able to move in one direction.

Thanks for the bug report NoSoldier. I thought that bug was gone since I haven't seen it for a while. I kinda knows how it happens but I don't know why. One way to avoid that is to jump in the transitions between scenes.

Great job. Love the art style in this, and thanks for releasing the flash version. I was worried I wouldn't be able to enjoy this on my Linux netbook. :)

A little bit Feedback:

First of all, nice look! I totally like this "oldish" computer-game look and I like these little black figures - Pons. It gives these game it's own look! That's really fine!

But now a big point, which demotivates playing it:
-Savegame!

If I die, I don't like to play it all the way through the game from the starting point. A Checkpoint or something like that would be awesome.

Currently I'm in the castle and I don't get through this puzzle. By the way: If you can't handle the puzzle and want to restart it with leave the screen and come back, you can't move the parts of the puzzle anymore.

But really nice work you've done there!

Thanks for you thoughts and I totally agree with you on the savegame point. Since there still seams to be a lot of problems with the game, I will release a updated version with bugfixes and a proper save system that lets the player save whenever he/she want to.

This is my first serious game and I learned quite a lot during it so hopefully my next game will be better at least technically.

Yeah I know. This was my first serious project in flash so I haven't really mastered the coding yet. But I'm glad you like the artwork and the sound and thanks for sharing your thoughts.

Spoiler: have you melted the frozen mans ice? He gives you information how to get in. In order to save him, you,ll need to do the space mission and recieve the torch.

Just put your time on the pc at this time and the guard won't stay in front of the castle, so you can enter it

This is incredibly buggy. From the second I started the game I ran into bugs. During the introduction scene, if you click quickly the game spazzes out and I was outside of the room in the dark to the left.

Then, when I finally stood there to watch the entire introduction scene after going outside and going left to the left map the game was stuck with a black screen and a repeating sound as if it was lagging (but not crashed or unresponsive)
