This game takes what is good about the Metroidvania genre, and compresses it into a fun, humorous sample of the genre. A small, but fun game. However, I failed quite a few times to the Boxbot while learning its attack patterns, and thus had to watch the one cutscene more than three times. A way to skip previously scene cutscenes, or maybe another checkpoint near the boss battle would be nice.

It was a lot of fun!
I love this game! It's so much fun and really well made, I love the dialogue. The music is really awesome too!
Is so freaking good.
I can't even.
One suggestion to make it better: If I've already seen the cut-scene, please make it skippable. That would be the only fix, though. Thanks!
Ooof, I really want to play, but I've already soft locked myself... in the menu. I was playing around with buttons, found myself in the controls setting menu, and accidentally bound everything to the same key. Now I cannot do anything. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling with no avail. How can I reset this data?
