Play as a man who has hanged himself and was sent to Hell by Death himself to run a gauntlet in order to regain his life along with the riches he so desired. 40 difficult platforming levels in all!


This is a game I finished up several weeks ago (released on Kongregate and Newgrounds) that has received quite a bit of public attention from some name sites:

Featured on FlashPunk, the IndieGames Blog, JayIsGames, CanardPC, Kotaku, GamePolisher Radio, AVClub, Bytejacker (Free Indie Rapidfire) and Bytejacker (Free Indie Countdown - Winner!), E4, and DIYGamer. (Links below, in order).

Cool little game. The style, gameplay and music are great. Reminds me allot of the original Meat Boy. The one thing I would change is the length of the death animation. The 4 second death animation seams a bit too long.

Nice game. I actually think it is weird when you die in Hell an angel comes out of your body. :P

Music and visuals were amazing. Movement mechanics weren't quite as fluid as I'd like to see (slightly longer acceleration threshold and variable jump strength would have been nice).

The early levels were practically trivial. Later levels were more irritating than challenging. For example, the placement of hard-to-see spikes and mouth things in the ground would mean a player will almost certainly die when reaching a new section of a level for the first time. Furthermore, frogs causing the character to bounce often causes unnecessary death and adds nothing in the way of gameplay value. Finally, the death animation could easily have been implemented so as to not interrupt gameplay for so long. The spacebar respawn is an awkward fix to a problem that could easily have been avoided.

Overall, a decent game with the bones of something great but ultimately unsatisfying.
