In a word: incredible.

This was a game that was beautiful to look at, fun to play, and a delight to get lost in. Backtracking and wandering didn't feel like a chore, so item hunting was a lot of fun (even if I did get trolled by the same item orb like 8 times, but that's completely on me). The ending was a total punch to the sternum and blew me away!

This is going to be a hack that I will play over and over again, that's a fact.

Very highly exploration-based, extremely beautiful, and the music is wonderful. There are a couple of frustrating parts, but overall, it was a very fun experience and the first hack I've ever completed. I highly recommend this one!

No completion stats.
First hack I've ever played.

It's really very interesting, and quite difficult. The music lulls you into a false sense of security before dropping you into a deathpit of angry Shaktool gears and Rinkas. (Oh god the rinkas) Pausing will lag really bad. I thought I'd crashed the first time, but it resumed really, really slowly. So if you need to pause, use the emulator. I haven't died this many times since 1996. It's great!

Fun little hack! Graphics are a little funny in some areas, but there are many different ways you can go through it and it's legitimately fun to play. Item hunting wasn't a chore, but there were a few I couldn't figure out. Escape is pretty narrow.. honestly surprised I survived the first time with milliseconds left.

Definitely a hack to play, especially for people new to hacks.
