The Game Endorlight
In this game, your main objective is to reach the door in the last area. You'll have 3 weapons in total: a whip, an axe, and a bow which has unlimited uses. There will be monsters which will prevent from you going to the last door, and you can die from them. Also, you'll have to restart from scratch if you die. You can see a minimap in the top left which is kinda hard to see to help you through the game. There are also some treasures lying on the floor, which either act as treasure chest or simply as a pouch. The treasure will give you gold, which i never find out the uses. There seem to be endless level "farming" in this game, with each floor will have a stronger enemy. However, i feel that the enemies damage are too high while the main character has no way of recovering HP.

There is a health container which will raise your maximum HP by one. However, it's not carried to the next stage.
Because you'll mostly just dodge the enemies and kill the boss, you'll get bored of this game quicky.

All sprites and UIs in game looks very similar to Platformer Roguelike Engine, which means that if the devs use the said engine, they only use default sprites.
There is a main menu in this game, although it looks very simple and brief. Luckily, the menu is easy to understand. However, you can't mute the game unless by opening the menu when the game starts.

All in All Endorlight is a very nice Retro-Style Game.

9/10 From Me

Crummy Spelunky clone. Poor controls, even poorer design, controls are laggy, UI is basic, multiplayer doesn't/broken.
The game lags despite being a low tier pixel game. They literally had to give keys away for this.
The only reason I have 5+ hrs in play time is to get cards.

I do not recommend anyone playing this game for the only fact that you can get stuck on certain parts and the only way to escape is loading your last saved game, also it will NEVER auto-save so beware.

The "developer" bought an engine on the game maker marketplace and somehow got it on steam. If you want to be a game developer too all it takes is $33.99 and a copy of game maker. Here is the link to start your game development career: https://marketplace.yoyogames.com/assets/1555/platformer-roguelike-engine

UPDATE: Well, things make a lot more sense now. It's a classic asset-flip, yay! Wan't to recreate Endorlight? Well, all you need is GameMaker and this
Platformer Roguelike Engine
asset from YoYo Games' marketplace for $33.99 ONLY $16.99. Now all you need to do is doodle over the default sprites and recolor the tiles a bit and you're done!

Original review follows:

Do you recommend this game?
  1. it's unoriginal, even taking into account the early stage of development
  2. there are a lot of issues, that not "early development" issues, but rather just plain lazy things (all graphics look blurry due to using the wrong texture filter, etc.)
  3. it's someone's first attempt at a game in Game Maker, and while there's nothing wrong with Game Maker, the inexperience shows clearly
  4. the developer feels shady (deleting discussion threads, recommending their game on their curator account, moderating the forums under a different steam profile etc.)
  5. some features reported in Greenlight all the way back in November are still missing from the game.
If you feel the game looks promising, instead of buying it now, follow the game and see where it goes once it develops, but I'd definitely recommend against buying at this stage.

Actual review
Endorlight is a dungeon platformer that's clearly heavily inspired by Spelunky. Your goal is to navigate short levels from the top to the bottom, find an exit and procede to the next randomly generated level. There are enemies, spikes and pick-ups on the way, and beyond what you'd expect from any platformer game you have wall-hugging, wall jumping, a horizontal ranged weapon and two different melee weapons. There are three tilesets fro the game, the third of which is used for every level beyond level 3, and five or six enemies, most differing only in their appearence, speed and hitpoints.

The game is in early alpha, but even taking that into account, the concepts the game presents feel unoriginal, and the game has a bunch of issues, that result from laziness or incompetence with the engine (Game Maker) including a very wonky control configuration system, blurry look due to using the wrong type of scaling filter on the sprites and tiles and UI issues (item's drawing over oneanother etc.)

The game is also VERY easy. There are way too many health pick-ups littered throughout the levels and the enemies are too easy to dodge most of the time. I usually give new games a change of one game over or one hour if there are a lot of deaths, in the one hour that I played Endorlight, I made it to level 159 or something, had so many health-upgrades that they covered my gold total, and finally died because I started playing one-handed while playing Trivia Crack on my phone. The game feels less like an alpha or pre-alpha, and more like an "engine test", but given that it's using Game Maker, I'd say the engine has already been quite thoroughly tested. I'd say the biggest challenge the game provides stems solely from the controls feeling laggy (not floaty, I actually enjoy some inertia in my platformer controls, but actually laggy) and the various small glitches (there are two shoot buttons, both fire where the character is facing, except if your standing next to a wall, in which case the character fires away from the wall).

The game is in early development, but in my playthrough, I never once encountered many of the features advertised on the games Greenlight page way back in November including the Digger enemy, the knife weapon or any inventory.

Outside the game, Endorlight has been Recommended by four curators, one of which has more than 10 subscribers. That one being Vantom's Giveaways, whose admin - vantom - is the user who submitted Endorlight to Steam Greenlight. The recommendation doesn't do anything to disclose this. Make of that what you will.
The developer also seems to delete discussion threads without any explanation or reason. They are using a wonderful PSD template from Designercow's awesome 80's Style Text Mockups pack, available on Envato's graphicriver store. I pointed out that they've made a small mistake when customizing the mockup, forgetting to move the glow/flare "blobs" to overlay on the logo's stroke outline, resulting in a weird look. The thread was summarily removed without explanation.

So, in closing. If this game interests you, I'd recommend checking out the free Game Maker version of Spelunky instead, it has a similar aesthetic, but offers much more to discover and is a very polished game. If nothing but Endorlight will do, unless you're a personal friend of the developer, I'd hold off on buying until at least the features that were supposedly already implemented during the Greenlight phase are realized...

Video demonstrating some of the menu issues, and a few gameplay clips to illustrate the monotony of the gameplay.

This game is an asset flip - NO original content is included whatsoever, and NONE of the profits go to the person who developed the engine which this "developer" stole. I can't believe this kind of cancer is still able to get on Steam.

Development is apparently fast and easy for the low price of $39.99


The only difference between this and the "Platformer Rogue Like Engine" is the characters hair and some bosses.


I was originally going to say that the game has potential to be really good but now I feel like I just need to know how devoted the developer is and if this is just a blatant cash grab?

The "Dev" could start by increasing the axes range, changing the characters movement/sensitivity, fixing wall jumping, and adding a double jump....Oh and the store to spend gold on...

I'm going to be a little brutal here. Yes, I know the game is EA. That does not mean I need to agree with EA in general or the fact that games can come out unfinished just because they are EA. They cost people money (I got this in a bundle not the free giveaway), therefore the product needs to offer an acceptable value for what we pay.

Now, here's my review:

The game tries to be similar to others on steam such as Spelunky. And that's great; if you're going to make a game, take inspirationg from the best in the genre. Aiming high is very commendable and totally fine.
But the game missed the mark with so many things. First of all, you have everything you will ever need right from the start like many varied weapons and infinite arrow. Secondly, non of the challenge you get from a game like Spelunky. you can easily take a number of hits and still be ok in Endorlight. And finally, non of the charm or character of a game that someone's worked on. There is simply nothing compelling about this product.

Before anyone plays the game, I highly recommend they remap their keyboard controls to something more practical, the default controls are very impractical. But default controls aside, the wall jumping mechanic in this game is somewhat halfassed, and gives you the impression that the only reason it exists is because the randomly generated levels can occasionally be impractical. "Instead of fixing the programming and making the levels manageable, we'll just allow the players to jump up walls to get out of the crap levels we generate. And therefore save ourselves some work." When you have wall jumps and no proper wall slides, or game mechanics that prop up and benefit from it, that's what I'm going to think.

Now people may get the impression I hate everything about this game, I do not, the look of the game is fine, some of the sprites are actually really nice. The attempt at making a Spelunky like game is something I find very welcome, I love Spelunky. But when the attempt is so bad, it's an insult to real games. So forgive me Spelunky, for mentioning you here. It's like saying my rusty trashbin looks exactly like the satelite NASA launched in June - the difference is that big. This game is broken in a lot of ways. It does not draw me in and make me feel like "I'm going to do this level this time". The controls are clunky and the jumping is iffy. I already have an axe, a whip and infinite arrows the moment I spawn, there's nothing I want to collect or find. And of course, because the game is EA, we have a lot of missing content, like the gems and gold we collect for no reason at all, we simply do not need them.

EDIT:In the comments below, it was brought to my attention that this game contains premade assets, which explains a lot.

- An interesting game on paper, as an idea - not so much in practice
- looks ok, some sprites are nice though there's a lot of repetition in the level

- Controls aren't great
- Responsiveness not great
- The wall jumps suck
- Not as challenging as it could be
- Missing content

I really want to like this game, but I just can't for a number of reasons.

- The menus are very basic. The background music is annoying and cannot be toggled/adjusted.
- Controls and movement, although extremely simple, feel "sloppy" (for a lack of a better description.)
- A certain "explosion/health damage" sound effect seems almost identical to one from an early release of Minecraft.
- That same sound effects triggers regardless of the player's distance from the explosion, and regardless of whether damage is sustained.
- Enemies and other damage sources have no cooldown/i-frames between hits, which lead to quick damage/death.
- Dying deletes your save file, forcing you to start from the beginning.

I feel like this game has a lot of room for improvement, but that improvement should have occurred before the game became available on Steam. After receiving this game for free and playing about 30 minutes worth, it's safe to say I will only play this game further for the trading cards.
