Under rating threshold (show) ♦ Remarkable. I absolutely adore Greek and Roman mythology, especially this myth. Twisted, and beautiful. The game itself was simple, yet difficult. And well, just don't look back.

Under rating threshold (show) Ok. An hour thinking brought me to this conclusion. The whole thing was an illusion. He never went to the underworld, as it was his thoughts of this epic adventure to save his loved one. The whole dream ends when he realizes that he is still there. I think the reason that he also disappears with his loved one's soul is because in fact his soul died too from losing her. Sad if you really think about it.

Under rating threshold (show) Its a terrific game, it also shows how good graphics don't make the game, content does... This should be categorized with other games just like it, there are plenty of other games like this one to put in its own group. 5/5 fantastic game. Truly worthy of 5/5. Rate up if you believe so too.

Under rating threshold (show) @WyattW43 it's because he looked back because he saw himself before he started his journey, looking back at your past. So they can never escape since you can't escape the past.

Under rating threshold (show) You have to shoot the F*cking dog in the back, otherwise you won't deal any damage... Same with the other Boss only shooting the head will damage him.

Under rating threshold (show) When you face the dog, get up close, and once it's back is facing you, shoot it. Do it again, but a few steps back, and for the third shot, jump over it when it charges you, and shoot it from behind. The demon is harder, you have to shoot it in the head as it shoots projectiles and summons monsters at you. :P

Under rating threshold (show) i dont understand the low rating , and yes i called 4 stars a low rating. this game is beautifully planned, the soundtrack is enthralling , the use of Greek mythology is a great way to make you learn something (wow i sound like a teacher) and the 8-bit idea is genius ! I wish they made more of this style of game *sigh* 5 stars

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.
