Under rating threshold (show) UGH I can't get one of the last the helix fragments next to the guy that says "Good luck snaily!" in the last world. I'm doing exactly what the waklthrough video says to do and there's a really small spot on the "stair" things to go through to enter a secret room but no matter how many times I try to do it nothing happens :/ tips?

Under rating threshold (show) What an outstanding game. Really well put together in every aspect, from the controls to the level design to the music to the difficulty curve to the dialogue. From about 500 games I've now rated this is one of ~10 receiving 5 stars. I hope there's a sequel. p.s. Isis is a central character in Final Fantasy Legend II, a cornerstone of the Gameboy from back in the 90s, and the Shrine of Isis also a central location. If people want to flip out, let it be pointed out that there is plenty of game-related precedent for use of one of the central characters of the Egyptian pantheon. Cheers.

Under rating threshold (show) I don't get the point in randomly updating a four-year-old game just to change the name of a character, especially when there's no "negative association" with the old name.

Under rating threshold (show) Pasting a chopped version of my message on your profile as I want to show my support here, too. Adding my voice to those that are sad you changed the name of Isis, particularly as she is a Goddess in my faith. (Faith most likely irrelevant, mentioning it to show I empathise with the situation) I refuse to let that group affect how I say her name. If it’s not too late, I’d advise sticking to what you wanted, and instead messaging people who are too ignorant to differentiate between the two (I mean ffs, Isis = name, ISIS = acronym) then you could message them with a copy-pasted explanation, instead of why you changed the name. Please don’t back down, I feel in doing this you are only allowing IS to further the fear. If you don’t go back to what you wanted, I won’t agree but I will understand why you don’t want the hassle, and won’t think less of you. Just know that myself, and judging by your profile messages many others, will stand by you.

Under rating threshold (show) This was a very well made game. Its a great nod to the classics, and the whole concept of wall/ceiling movement is really a lot of fun. Even playing it for some extended time, I didn't need to mute the soundtrack. Great work and Thanks!!!

Under rating threshold (show) Even though this game was released over 4 yrs ago, the developer bothered to come back and change the name of an npc snail from "Isis" to "Iris" simply to "avoid negative associations." This probably wasn't even necessary, but if it doesn't show his dedication to the game, then I don't know what does... 5/5 for being an exemplary person as well as a great dev.

Under rating threshold (show) This game used to have a snail named Isis, after the Egyptian goddess of the sun. I've renamed the snail to Iris, after the Greek goddess of rainbows, to avoid negative associations.

Developer response from auriplane

Oops, Egyptian goddess, but not of the sun. Well, I was going to expand the Egyptian theme in the sequel for the whole sun/moon snail thing, but I guess I'll do something else . . .

Developer response from auriplane

The snail is named after the Egyptian god Isis. When I made this game, I didn't know there was going to be a group named ISIS years later. Sorry, I can't see the future . . .  Anyway, I renamed the snail to Iris, after the Greek goddess of rainbows.

Under rating threshold (show) The site wouldn't register that it gave me my bonus points because I played this game a few days ago and it won't refresh. I even tried starting a new file, losing all the progress I'd made. Then I went to the Kongpanion page and it said I already had the bonus points so I just wasted my file. I'm not going through all that again. This sucks.
