Fueled by pizza and curry rice over the course of a month, I tried to play around and learn as much as possible. This game came about after ditching seven or so other false starts. The last ditched game this idea was created from had essentially come down to sitting around on couches playing chill mini-games. The pink and blue couches from the Arabian Nights resource pack mixed with the sounds from the Festival of Light Japanese resource pack and thus Ladd Din came from the final "do this one now or you won't make the deadline at all" moment on the 30th.

So in summary, that Humble RPG Maker Software Bundle gave me and my sister nearly a month of fun, hey, let's try to do this thing craziness. Maybe we'll keep going under different self-imposed deadlines. A million thanks to the RPG Maker community for all their plugins, tutorials, resources, help, wacky encouraging contests, tweets, etc.

Hooray! Time to go sit around on couches and chill.

Hi there, I played your game. Here's my review:

What got me interested:

-> it's Aladdin themed! (Love me some fairytales)

What I liked when I played:
-> The mazes itself
-> I liked that gold and skeletons lighted up. It made going through the mazes a bit easier.

What I didn't like:
-> Starting on a "world map". The map just made little sense to me, I
assume you picked that because you don't have a large piramid tile?
-> The slow walking speed when you reached a certain amount of
money... This was definitely a deal breaker for me. I had collected up
to 1500 golds, so I was "dashing" at a snails' pace. I just threw away
all my money and any of the money that I collected afterwards.
-> No shutdown option anywhere.
-> The music started annoying me after a while.

Did I complete it?:
No, I couldn't find the key to unlock the doors. I was able to bypass
most of them until I got to the final room. At this point, I had played
for 12 minutes.

Other things the developer needs to know:
-> No music after I hit New Game (on the world map)
-> It would be nice if the maps kinda showed where the key is. Or if
there were some actual hints as to where I could find it.

If you ever change some of my grievances (that hard to find key, the slow speed etc.), I'll definitely try again.
