Under rating threshold (show) People are saying that this game is all philosophical; giving their own interpretations and everything. But it's not open for interpretation really...it's the story of Orpheus and Eurydice.

Under rating threshold (show) I love this game. My tips for beating the bosses: for the dog, go right up against the left 'electric fence'. It'll bounce off it and point away from you - shoot it. Stay right next to the fence and it'll do the same again - repeat. This only works twice though, as you'll see. For Hades himself: shoot him in the head as you fall onto the platform. Then jump, jump again, and fire again. Blam - two hits before you even hit the floor

Under rating threshold (show) Oh, man, this game blew my mind. I didn't understand why it was called "Don't Look Back" until I defeated the big boss and realized it was the tale of Orpheus. Smooth gameplay, awesome pixel graphics, haunting ending, and a really satisfyingly hard challenge, to boot.

Under rating threshold (show) WoW, this guy need to work on his planning a bit before suddenly going on an epic quest. I mean what if he didn't accidentally find that that magic handgun with unlimited ammo. How exactly were you planning to shoot the devil in the face with then, hmm...

Under rating threshold (show) the jumping is bad, very laggy and the shooting isn't much better. With some fine tuning it would be perfect.

Under rating threshold (show) I think he died at the very start. I mean, look, he was mourning, fell down a long, long way, was in blackness, (Like a transaction to hell) and now he went to hell. Who gets me? That's what I think what happened. He couldn't take the hurt of the loss of his loved one. :'(

Under rating threshold (show) Based on the greek story of orpheus who was a musician and fell in love with a wood nymph who died. He went to the underworld to ask hades to give her back. Hades said that if he played his music while he walked out of the underworld, his love would follow him. Hades also said that if he looked back, his love would be lost forever. Long story short- He looked back :(

Under rating threshold (show) Orpheus was a skilled minstrel who was to marry Eurydice when she suddenly died. So he traveled into the underworld and convinced Hades with his music to let her go. Hades agreed on the condition that Orpheus could never look at Eurydice-who would follow behind him-until he was out of the underworld. Orpheus and Eurydice began their travel above, but Orpheus began to fear that he was tricked. So when they were close, he looked behind him and saw his love before she returned to the underworld - hope that clarifies the story a bit ^-^

Under rating threshold (show) That was... a very interesting game, I think it deserves to be categorized alongside "Company of Myself" and other philisophical games in terms of ability to make one think- I can see why it would be rated low, however, with multiple levels being infinitely challenging at times and in certain ways- THINK TWICE BEFORE YOU RATE, KIDS!

Under rating threshold (show) it's not that much a philosophical game, but it's a really nice adaptation of Orpheous and Eurydice's Myth. I had to get her ghost to realize this was the myth and that the final boss is Hades :I
