Fomalhaut Flowers :: noir, luck, and an unresponsive jump button :: side scrolling puzzle (?) platformer that comes off as frustrating due to the awkward physics and unavoidable deaths. 4.5/10

Light Up The Room
For new players the skill progress can be a little slow. But, if look from another angle, is good for new plataform players. Some people who never played a game like this will love the difficulty progression. The level design is very good,some times your mind start to find patterns and is very fun when it’s happen.
For me is good, responsive and have that nice slideness effect.
I miss at least one more form of keyboard control set.
But the basic, but well made is a good choice anyway

Path to Heaven
Path to Heaven is a hardcore platformer in a minimalist style.
Hardcore: main game mode will not let you relax. After death you start from the beginning of level;
Checkpoints: if you have problems with the game, you can always enable checkpoints in the settings. With it after death you will appear at the last checkpoint;
Large number of levels: game includes nine floors, each of which consists of five levels. There will be a total of 45 handmade levels;
Lots of traps and obstacles: be careful, each new floor carries more and more new dangers;
Minimalism: game is made in a minimalist graphic style;
Character customization: you can choose a color for your character. Also in the game settings, you can turn off the glow that follows it;
Records: The game displays the best and most recent time you have passed the level. The number of deaths is also displayed.

pretty fun game even though It made me wanna quit life, but i did complete all 27 levels.
Very pleasant game. I love simple principles but that can get you scratching your head for minutes. The VHS type art style and oniric music really got me out of my mind for a moment. Good job!
Game looked crisp. Big step up from Lion Quest graphically. Checkpoints more unforgiving than Lion Quest, albeit this is much shorter in total length. It’s free, give it a try. If you like it, then try Lion Quest while waiting for infinity. Looking forward to Lion Quest Infinity where hopefully we get some wild Jefferson infinity loop with like a Jefferson vortex and spinning Jeffersons everywhere. Hopefully the main game hub in infinity is a bit more user friendly than lion quest at least make it like a to z/left to right to access the levels
First review of this game.
After completing the game on normal mode I can say that this game is worth it’s price. While it took me ~2h to reach the end I was almost speedrunning so it will probably take a bit longer on average.
simple and easy to learn controls,
52 levels (last chapter is super good),
level editor can also generate levels (but creating your own one is more fun),
the game is just clean in general,
don’t ride the snake.
Mastho is Together
Precision platform is always difficult, right, no surprises. But here the level is really insane. You will suffer, but the minimalist music is well fitted and will bring you some calm. But make no mistake, you will suffer here. I recommend it for those who are experts in precision platforms at the hell level.
A really fun and hard game! Not so hard so as to make the game only beatable by experts, but surely enough to make you want to master its mechanics and think of the best way of passing through the levels. And not only do the levels ask you to be fast and precise, but often also require you to think and come up with a good strategy for beating a more delicate point.
And one of the best parts of the game: even if you keep dying and dying at the same point in a level, you will never get angry because the music is so soothing and relaxing - the perfect match for a game like this!
Short Hop Laser
Dear god it’s beautiful. My premonitions used to manifest in visions of utter terror and desolation, humankind wiped from this earth like excrement from a boot.
But now, thanks to the420, I see fields of green, red roses too. Play this game, if only to say you have become a part of what makes gaming good.
I like the big pink seagull
SJ-19 Learns To Love!
A very to-the-point Metroidvania.
SJ-19 Learns To Love! doesn’t play around with hidden rooms, power-ups drop directly from bosses and the map features clear cut landmarks.
You’ll know exactly where to return to once you’ve drained the water system for example.
You play as SJ-19, a droid fortunate enough to be selected from storage and immediately instructed to follow in a long line of killing machines. This plays nicely against the simple cute aesthetic presented by the game visuals, as bosses will ask you to reconsider fighting them, whilst the shops (which are characters) gleefully encourage you to get back to killing and pump up your Soul Power to increase your firepower. Every boss comes with an ability to be gained and a lesson to be learned (guess what the final one is?) as SJ-19 malfunctions and journeys through the recess of it’s…programming?
After trying two metroidvanias that turned out to be terrible (Frauki’s adventure and catmaze) I had low expectations for SJ-19. However, this turned out to be actually good. It’s got a good story, and good gameplay at the expense of content, graphics, and sound effects. The only downside is that the game is a bit overpriced and it has to be bought on sale.
