I love Hades-like games, but I'm bad at fangames, so what do I do? Do I get better? Do I grind for longer? No, I just wait for people to make easy ones.

This game really is an incredible little needle game. It's short, compact, succinct, to the point, doesn't beat around the bush, is in and out like the wind, and overall it is not a very long game. Sincerely though, it's all of those things, as well as quite comfortable to traverse (mostly) and especially satisfying to play through. Combine that with the great visuals and you've got yourself a recipe for goodness.

As the readme says, it set out to be probably the easiest hades-like game and it achieved this competently. Simple graphics, short precise saves and a short game in general. Captures the style and keeps the difficulty flat which should generally be how these go.

It's not changing the world in any way, but if you want an easier hades-like, this nails it.

Fun needle inspired by the likes of Hades. Features interesting, relatively precise jumps and acceptable difficulty balance, with the short amount of screens, stone-like tilesets and gradient background that characterize hades-like fangames. Music choice is nice, and the death sound isn't too loud, I guess. Only bad thing is the save with three diamonds, a little bit of pointless walking and a choke jump, and even that save wasn't that bad (Or maybe I'm just in a good mood, who knows).
It's just a fun, short needle game that does nearly nothing wrong. Would recommend.

I have never been interested in that kind of needle but I have to admit that I had a lot of fun while playing this one. Despite being short, it's quite well-done and never too precise. Also special mention for the save sprite, really beautiful. Would really recommend even if you're not a fan of short harder saves.

Good shit.
Enjoyed hard mode more because it was more pleasant to clear. Still a very cool game, worth playing.
