A short adventure game made for I Wanna Twourney, heavily inspired by some of my favorite old-school fangames and dedicated to a great friend of ours! I've wanted to do something like this for a while now and I'm glad I had the chance to do it alongside a talented maker like Prince, huge shoutouts to him!

There are 2 paths you can take at the start of the game, each with 2 stages and a boss, with the difficulty aimed around the 60-65 range. At the end of your playthrough, you will receive a score based on your death count and the overall time spent playing it. The Twourney version isn't too different from this release besides a couple of jumps throughout the platforming, but one of the bosses was buffed with more HP and a new attack to keep things a bit more balanced.

Also, the difficulty select will change the amount of savepoints in-game, Hard removes all Wuss saves, Very Hard keeps one save at the beginning of each area and Impossible removes all saves (besides the boss rooms, in theory...)

Thank you very much to arzztt for organizing the Twourney event and putting up with all our delays (oops)
We had to cut a lot of what we wanted to do to meet the deadline, but we still put in a lot of effort and we're very proud of how it turned out, so have fun!

And of course... Happy Birthday, Natsu!!

Quite a refreshing game. Some design is reminiscent of adventure games of the past, while almost every save also has set pieces more common to modern gimmick needle. The bosses are pretty simple, but fun nonetheless.
