This guy should be renamed frustration but in a good way in brings back the time of extremely difficult platformers where both skill and memorization are required to progress. The soundtrack is delightfully 8-Bit and surprisingly atmospheric. No holding hands in this game it is trial and error. Do not buy this game for the plot as it is nonexistent and least to the point I got which is room 5 after about 1000 deaths. My hope is that the bring the nameless series which this game is derivative of to the US particularly the nameless app which I would purchase in a heartbeat. This game is not so much scary by no means but it is brutal I would say. Overall I would recommend this to people who like a challenge like the golden age of gaming, easily the most difficult game I have played in ages.
Was hoping for more variety
The idea is interesting, and it certainly lives up to it's reputation of being tough, but I wish that the "774 deaths" had more variety than the blades that are present in every level. The controls are tight (including the tilt controls), but I just found that my interest wore out pretty quickly, even for a $1 game. The one feature that I did find interesting was the ability to change avatars as you unlock new rooms. Sadly, it's a superficial change, only.
Personally, if you're looking for a tough game that's a lot of fun, I recommend Dark Souls. It's on the 360 and PS3 rather than iOS and costs 60x the price, but I have gotten a lot more than 60x the play time that I got from this.
Extremely hard but extremely good
The game is extremely hard - I was very happy about that. This game will make me so frustrated and angry (I just cleared room 20, 1200 deaths so far), BUT when you clear a room it is so glorious. If you are the type of challenge seeker that plays RPGs on permadeath, this is a game you will love.
The controls are overall very good. BUT, the D-Pad arrows should be a little bit bigger and not so near the screen edge. The variety of games is very cool too. Great use of tilting controls
