Short game with a great story!!

A fading melody is unlike any other game I have expierenced! The gameplay is simple platforming that feels a little slippery at times but after a while you will get the hang of it and it will be natural. The Story is the part that seperates it from everything else. A mature storyline that slowly explains why your in a coma and has a twist or two is classic storytelling! No matter how many times I died because of cheap jumping deaths or enemies I wanted to get to the end of the level so I could find out more. A little frustrating at times but worth every penny and emotion. My main fault with the game is how short it is but for $2.50 you cant really expect more then there is.

Short

Pretty fun platformer mechanics, but I had a lot of trouble with the jump mechanic. I was regularly falling off the edge when I was trying to jump. Very cool concept with the graphics though.

A fairly short but solid platformer with a compell

I'll start with the only negative I can think of - aside from the nice lighting and colorization effects, all seven stages use the same graphics - same backgrounds and platforms. Well and it's fairly short.

But this is a very solid platformer with few other flaws and a variety of enemies, and one of my favorite community games, and I've played way over 100 of them. Soon to perform the essential roll attack efficiently you'll find it's necessary to hold the sprint button most of the time. The controls aren't all natural at first, but they don't take much learning. The variety of challenges make this a good platformer.

Hoisting my review from an 8 to a 10 is this game's story. You play the dreams of a coma patient. If you just don't do anything to keep her brain occupied (aka beat an enemy) for a long time, the screen gets too dark and she peacefully fades away. But you want her to live!

Before and after every level she becomes nearly conscious, and through her thoughts you slowly learn what brought about the coma. It is a dark story of her and her husband and another friend, and a camping trip, and my spoilers end here :p

Just the fiction is worth 200msp. Plus you get an enjoyable game.
