Reviewer's comments
"This feels like there is a genuine purpose- like a test for those who wish to endure it. Copycat rooms again but this time it feels like it has a genuine purpose instead of just making you do it for no good reason- and that's because of the end, where a catholicly meaningful message awaits you of persistence that actually works with the context." - OblivionJaw (05-Dec-2023)
"An interesting concept it is, but as a game I'm not sure whether to hate it or acknowledge its message. Probably that's just what the builder intended it to be." - manarch2 (24-Aug-2023)
"I cheated. And I suspect players below also have and any future reviewers will also do so. Once you get the proper timing for the swinging crosses it's just an exercise of patience, but the author puts you in a hellish loop as you do the same room over and over and over and over, so I wouldn't risk making it to the tenth or so cycle only to lose everything for a shimmy that went one pixel too far. I don't think god is dead, but I'm sure if they had ever existed in the first place they'd have abadoned us long ago. I mean, they've created the world in seven days, right? How many other, and better, worlds might have been created over the span of the last millennia? NLNMAS elite, rejoice. 30+ minutes. 08/23" - Treeble (20-Aug-2023)
"More off-the-wall raiding from Drobridski, somewhat similar in style to his previously released Caco-Demon level, at least gameplay-wise. While I can admire the effort and clearly, thought, that went into this latest of his, again it really wasn't to my taste as (because the save/load function is disabled and the gameplay progression is frankly uninspired and repetitive to the nth degree) it becomes more of an endurance test than a "unique" experience. Not entirely sure of the significance of the subliminal messages either, maybe you have to play it more than once to understand..." - Ryan (07-Jul-2023)
"Extremely (At the highest level) dificult !!! To understand, to get the ideia/purpose of this circular/repetitive motion !! Just Hell !! I was curious after NUCCAPOMPULAMYRSKY, to try this oneā€¦. But i do not recomended without infinite patience !! I ended the game with a strange love/hate feeling. All in all, it's worth a try!" - CalrOsario (27-Jun-2023)
"So, I cleared the penultimate Drobridski level. It was purifying even though I wasn't brave enough to pioneer through the final part without a walkthrough - which might have saved me from several more attempts so I'd say it was the correct decision for this game. But I would like to see this genius author make a level which is both crazy and accessible to everybody. Until now, only a few could realize the talent behind, so put it more in the front. Recommended for a patient day." - DJ Full (22-Jun-2023)
"I was really wondering why this level has no reviews. There are several possible reasons, like a jump-scare at the title screen...or disabled save/load...or a series of tricky jumps that is the only real obstacle...or hurt feelings due to the unpleasant and yet never properly answered question. I'm actually pretty sure that a very few people finished it, because there would surely be some complaints in the forum otherwise. Anyway, what looked like a joke level actually turned out to be something deep. I understood the intentional fairy-tale-for-children vibe, just like I understood the "axe" that many players will avoid in the game, but have already fell right into in real life. Anyway, on one hand it's really bad from gaming perspective, but on the other hand it contains one of the deeper messages in any custom level, adding to the willingness of the established builder to get into something that will surely get him some haters among the group of people that should've extincted centuries ago. So yes, this distribution of marks might make people curious, but be warned - If you don't like getting your bronze-age bubbles popped by the unpleasant truth, don't play it. Drobridski, hats off \m/" - Tolle87 (18-Jun-2023)
