This game is pretty great. The controls are spot on (once you get the hang of them). The name of the game alone warrents its download. The graphics aren't bad. The cinema boards have a lot of black space at times but it all looks good. The world itself is well designed and the enemies that turn into platforms when shot makes for some interesting gameplay. You can whip through the game fast or try and get all the hearts for a better ending. A better ending basically consists of the same board with different text (with the exception of the best ending where you get an additional art board (actually the best art board.) There is no music in this game, but that's not a crime. As far as I know (and he beat me to it) this is the first platform game for ZZT that allows back tracking from board to board, meaning need to get something on one board and go back and use it somewhere else. Not too long, maybe short, but really who's counting. Not me. Unless you consider shuting up and giving a score "counting". Best game released in a while.
