Don't Look Back

By Terry Cavanagh

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Don't Look Back is a short game I made in 2009.

Some reviews of the original version:

"A perfect example of doing more with less" - The Escapist

"Every game with a lead character necessarily has a moral. Every single one. It's just rare that the moral is so uplifting." - Jayisgames

"It may be a pop song, but it´s like a Smashing Pumpkins single or something, from a concept album." - PlayThisThing

What's New in Version 1.3

Fixes a bug with button size on iPhones.

Customer Reviews

I really liked it!

The reason I put 4 stars is because the game is short for more experienced gamers like myself, I beat in in about 20 minutes. Fortunately, those were a 20 minutes well spent, for this game has well thought out challenges, cool platforming, and a couple of bosses thrown in. On top of that the game is free, which is pleasing for me to get the game only for a click of my fingers. Good job!

Well done.

Challenging (If you're someone who rages easily, probably not for you.)
Interesting Sound Effects
Constant red background can be annoying to some players, though I didn't mind it.

I do in fact, Look Back. I look back and regret downloading this game.

What the heck. Everyone treats this game as a masterpiece while I just feel lucky I didn't pay for this. If you say this is a great philosophical piece of art, then sorry, you're just a pretentious idiot. I can't tell you how many "pixel art games about life and death" there are. There's so many, and this one is nothing special. It's actually one of the not as good ones I've played. Perhaps this is what started the trend, but I don't care. It's not very good. A waste of time.
