Wish it kept going - Zen

This game is so chill and cool. I just want them to make more games like this! Feels like Princess Mononoke or something.

The music is beautiful, hypnotic and sort of lulling, makes me wish the boss music was as ephemeral. I dig the difficult controls, it's never really frustrating because you never have to go very far back when you die.

It is a very short but artistic game with simple old-school graphics which always appeals to me. The character has a pony tail and I liked that I could identify with the character as a woman, but then it's narrated as "he," oh well.

Beauty in Simplicity

This game is fantastic. The looks are simplistic as its controls.

You are a young archer that must defeat stages of demons while on horseback. You drawback your arrows by just dragging any part of the screen. Though sometimes your fingers get in the way of your view, it works for this game.

The types of enemies changes for every environment change, ending with a particular boss that embodies the peaks of those enemy types. These enemies give the right amount of difficulty: not too easy nor annoying.

This is a very short game. I've beaten the whole game in around an hour. This game has some replay value because it rewards you with bows that have different attack patterns. I replayed it with a bow that can shoot multiple arrows.

Definitely a great game for just a dollar. Go buy it and share it with your friends!

Simply Great

Obviously this game hasn't had an update in a while (2 years) but it's still such an entrancing little experience.
