Very nice metroidvania! The controls were solid and felt good, and I beat it in 13:48.54 casually. The last boss was particularly awesome, I barely survived with one pip of life left.
One thing that could help in games like this is locking doors between rooms until you kill all of the enemies, because after I learned the map I was just dodging or damage-boosting through most rooms. The difficulty was just right for me, though, and with backtracking I did appreciate being able to speed through old areas. I'm not sure what happens when you die, but if it takes you back to the last recharge station as a checkpoint, I'd think that was fair.
I also really liked the variety in the enemies and bosses, they each had unique behaviors that made defeating them interesting and challenging, even as you powered up. That ending reference was cool as well. :)
@jeb Thanks for the suggestions!
I was originally going to add some kind of save point, but I didn't bother because I thought the game was already short enough.
I might add one in though.
At first I was definitely on the boat of the game needing checkpoints, but let me tell you, when I managed to beat the game I felt AWESOME. The premise was cool, the bosses were cool- I'd love to see you make more games, maybe with lack of checkpoints toggleable for those looking for this kind of experience!
