This game is in a certain sense a complete mess, and yet… there’s something about it I find appealing. You’re a stickman-like flat 2d-character inhabiting a 3d-world, running around typical RPG surroundings (dungeons and the likes), killing enemies (bats and other) who are 2d like you. The main problem is that the control of your character is horribly implemented and your viewpoint is fixed in a rather useless angle.
The style of mixing 2d with 3d looks neat, apart from these moments when you or your enemies look like they are standing inside the walls (which happens quite often). Overall the gameplay is simple, but that doesn’t have to say much, sometimes simple is good. Sadly, when the most basic element of a game is broken, like the controls, and playing is annoying instead of fun, it just doesn’t add up to something worthwhile. Still, I like the style of the game.
