Thank you for coming in here. The objective of this game is to avoid things by moving your minotaur left and right. The pheonix egg heals, and the berry bush will prove your ninja skills. No sound files.
There is a tutorial and the game isn't very hard. It's all in cinematic mode.
If you have any problems, good or bad impressions, just tell me!
I love the idea that you have here, but the controls are just so terrible that it's nearly impossible to play. They need some serious work, or the gameplay needs to be dumbed down. The problem is that it's basicly impossible to move your mino the way you want. If you made it so the minotaur turned on 50 degree angles, and no turns in the terrain, then maybe this would work.
Like I said, the controls are so difficult to use that it's nearly impossible to play. However, if the controls were fixed, I can see the difficulty being spot-on.
I've never seen an idea like this being released here, so kuddos to you for finding a unique idea! I love arcade stuff like this, and with there was more of it here.
Map Design: 3
I thought that the map design was pretty well thought out, however it was impossible to turn because of the controls, so eliminating turns in the maze would be a good idea. Also, more eyecandy on the sidelines would be a good idea. Check out the screenshot section of this site for inspiration.
The tutorial was really well done. It explained everything I needed to know. Also, I felt that the little bit of backstory you showed explained the purpose of the game nicely. However, you could have explained that pressing the spacebar made the game unplayable because it reset all the hotkeys, and that you needed to press enter to select a mode.
This would be a great scenario if the controls weren't so messed up. Fix these, add a bit more eyecandy and a few more directions, and you have a great scenario.
