    Looks like VVVVVV and Metroid but I wonder If The lack of a map makes it frustrating or boring.

    I actually prefer this to Traps N Gemstones when it comes to Explore 'em Ups. i mostly got my head around the lack of a map, but i believe if you look in the game thread you will find a map of the entire gameworld, which I did resort to once. Anyway, great, elemental game, even if some of the chiptunes verged on Gabber Techno at times. :)

    Wait! I die and I lose my itens? Do I have to finish the game without dying?

    I'm playing the lite version. Maybe this is the limitation.

    Well... Played this game only for some minutes, but so far I like it better than Traps n Gemstones too. And I haven't drink for 48 hours.

    I'm a member of AA and your comment sent me into such a funk that I've just cracked open a bottle for the first time in ten years. Thanks for that... ;)

    I genuinely prefer Astronot's layout to Traps, plus I just found it more fun to play. I'm not one of those pixeler than thou people, either. I usually dig any old metroidvania game, though.
