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) 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) 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) 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) 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

Under rating threshold (show) Awesome. Loved the story and retro feel. The first time I beat the final boss, I got killed by a falling spike while being mesmerized by the boss exploding. I had to fight him again. it sucked.
