Hey, I like it! It was intriguing - nice concept.

I had no clue what was going on at first but I like that - I don't like it that a lot of games nowadays lay out everything for you. I didn't make it to the top - I'm not in a patient mood right now so maybe I'll try again later.

One thing I would mention was the loading or intro - not sure which it was - but I couldn't tell if it was loading or I was supposed to do something. I had to exit full screen and click around. If it was just loading you might want to put a bar or percentage up so people know - I almost left and didn't play. I hit skip intro on accident because I was trying to already clicking around trying to get to the game.

Thanks!

Bro, Thank you!
The white map is a loading screen and it's telling a story of what happened before the intro cinematic, you can't interact with it
Okay, I'll add the percentage or the bar or something to show that the game is loading, so they will never leave :P and this game was design to play in full-screen mode, but if you find that it's annoying I might add the option for it in the last update ( this Sunday, hopefully)
again, thanks a lot for the first feedback, I really need it!

I wasn't annoyed by the full screen - it was probably just a coincidence but here's what I meant by that: As soon as the page loaded and I saw the full screen button I went to full screen. Then I couldn't tell if it was loading or if it was stuck. So after pressing buttons and clicking around didn't do anything I exited full screen and it went to the next part (the map I think). So I went back to full screen but then I couldn't tell if the map thing was an intro or if it was looped and I was supposed to choose something. I exited full screen again and started clicking around like a mad man and the skip intro prompt popped up and I accidentally clicked it.

I've used some programs, games, etc that seemed to get stuck in full screen mode sometimes so that is why my instinct was to exit full screen - but it could have just been a coincidence on the timing.

I will try it again later and maybe I'll reach the top . . .

Tried again! Still couldn't get up there! Are you sure there is a way?

FYI - it got stuck twice for a small amount of time (10 seconds) after getting hit - not everytime though

Great job! Really neat concept. I really like the 'not knowing' what to do aspect, as @badmoodtaylor stated earlier. Once I examined the lantern - I was like "AHA!" Too many games these days are basically one giant tutorial. I like to have discovery, it grants the player with a feeling of achievement.

Amazing graphics and the intro movie was cool but the controls can be better and maybe some instructions
