Graphics & Sound
The background seasons that this side scroller indie game shows off is impressive for a pixel game. While going through each of the season’s forests, they’ll tell a story through different types of spirits and monuments around the forests. While not a whole lot of change comes about the road layout when going through the forests to finish your quests, the different creatures that come about during your journey through the woodlands will catch one’s eye.

The background music while going through the repetitive gameplay may seem a little simple but does keep you motivated when going through each of the obstacles.
