Prepare to start questioning all you know about platformers... muahahahahahahhh :mortlol "All Right on the Knight" :birthday

This isn't actually the game I was working on when I posted the Pocket Platformer thread. I still need to make the music for that one.

Well isn't that just the cutest dragon sprite in the world!

Looking forward to checking this out! Like the super old style-inspired box art, too!

I tried it, the title appears more literal than I expected at first. :lol

I completed all levels in 10:43 with 35 deaths. Probably lost some time on the first level before I understood what I should be doing.

5:28 and change with 41 deaths.

I don't know what was going on in anything, I literally held the right arrow from the moment I read the "GO GO GO" tombstone.

Is it possible to get to the highest tombstone in the first castle? I couldn't make the last jump. :(

When I played this a couple weeks ago, I scrolled down to the comments and saw someone claiming that the game could be beaten simply by holding down right, which is what I ended up doing. Watching the game unfold while I do almost nothing was pretty cool.
...and I only just now looked at the title again and noticed :evil

also the tombstones are :lol

wow, this game is huge. How long did it take to finalize all these puzzles? I imagine that playtesting and re-configuring every bits and pieces of all those fiddly timing sections was a lot of trail and error, wasn't it?

btw, here's my score:

Lol this is top value entertainment... the thread riddled with spoilers both made it and broke it, ultimately ensuring that I wasn't left to suffer too much whilst playing.
