Wow, a totally unexpected game from Sanchez !!!

For me, after Survivisection, Castlevania and Final Fight you can make a simple equation:

Sanchez=top quality :)

Didn't play it yet but will have to find some more time to try it out thoroughly

I've captured the random map generator working using Spud. Pretty impressive:

Actually I didn't wait much and played it just now.

Demo version is just one level but it gives a good feeling of the game.

Some advice:
- to complete the level you need to find the key and later the door
- you MAY shoot, press fire + direction to shoot
- but your shots are limited - the blue potion
- you may also fight in close combat but that means taking damage from enemies
- always try to manouevre so you hit first, often it will finish the enemy
- don't take potions if you still have a lot of mana/energy, save them for later

Generally it was a very nice experience with good graphics and music 8-) I liked especially AY version of Green Sleeves song.

seems a nice game, albeit the second or so response lag when changing direction can be a pain when being navigating enemies
