The game is really good. Gameplay is zelda-ish, pixel art is ok, and it's free with no in-apps.

Even if you're not a fan of a series still a solid one.

I'll happily sit through ten hours of this kind of advertising! Played through the first location, and I'm hooked. That chip-tune theme song... This is something awesome. I hope it gets put on Steam or the MAC App Store too.

This is exactly how tie in games should be. Free with no IAP and part of the marketing budget. Only played a few minutes but loving it so far!

RE: The first dungeon; I found Lucas, turned off two lasers, but can't seem to figure out this room (do I need the keycard?):


Also, what's the deal with the cracked wall and small pipe/tube?

This is a little embarrassing seeing that I fancy myself as a puzzle/adventure type of gamer...
