(Non-english native here, sorry for any mistakes/mispelling)
First, I LOVE this game. And I really enjoy speedrunning it (for the moment I only achieved times on grass & water, which are easily improvable, and I'm training Fire, which is really difficult to speedrun).
But I face a dilemma : I have found a glitch/exploit that allows the character to double jump under certain conditions. Nothing really broken : it can't be done everywhere and it is REALLY difficult to do, but it allows some time saves in some rooms (that's what makes Fire so hard to speedrun in fact ^^'). I don't know if you are aware of that glitch, and I'm a bit scared to tell you more about it because I don't know if you are the kind of developper that patch unintended (but deep) gameplay. This exploit really brings the speedrun to a new level and require very good execution to accomplish, making the run very interesting in terms of risk/reward, and it would demotivate me to run if it disappears.
That said, I didn't spend so much time on a flash game since a looooot of time, and it is a real pleasure to play it again and again. Thank you for that game !
Haha, fun game ! (and not laggy for me, it seems important to tell xD)
I found an OOB glitch though : everytime (kinda) you destroy a blue block at the surface by smashing it, you can go at the left edge of the screen (where there is no transition) and fall infinitly out of bounds. To reproduce simply : at the very first screen, smash a bluc block and hold left =). You can trigger the boss fight by going right, and escaping it locks the game. Fun glitch !
Thanks for the review! That glitch should be fixed now in version 1.2 (PM me if it's not plz!)
(Sorry for my english, I'm not a native english speker !)
Excellent game ! I love trying to achieve the best time possible and finding tricks to go faster =) !
I found a very interesting glitch (speedrunly speaking) that allows you to "clone" your hero, and even if I don't want it to be patched (it is so fun and I'm sure it can lead to insane times), I have to tell you :
if you retry at the same time than your death (may be frame perfect, but I'm really not sure. It is quite difficult to do), the death sound is played twice and you now control 2 heroes, one over the other. You take double damage while your heroes are superposed, but if you die, only one will be teleported to the save point and so you'll be able to really control both. Unfortunatly, the camera follows only one hero and, if you want the "shift" button to work, you must have an odd number of heroes (but you take even more damage). The enemies will detect only one hero, ignoring the other.
I am currently enjoying playing with that glitch, trying to use this to beat the game in the fastest possible way (one hero goes for the walljump upgrade while the other is on the way to the double jump, for exemple) and would be sad if it was fixed =( xD !
Let's make it clear : I don't like dubstep. In fact, that's what I thought before listening this. It's a perfect mix between symphonical music and electronic sounds, and I found this awesome. Those music box sounds, accompanied with the "lyrics" (are those real words ? If yes, what does they mean ?) is genius, and even the dubstep part, that I dreaded, made finally a fantastic constrast with the symphonic part. Congratz !
(P.S. : English is not my first language, I apologize for any mistake/mispelling)
No problem, I understood exactly what you're trying to say :P. Thanks for the review, the words they're saying are Japanese and were used from a youtube video someone made with Vocaloid. Thanks again!
