I love experimental platformers such as this game. When videogames can be art, if you mix the right formula in its place where it should be since the beginning.
This is probably one of the best representations of a lifetime in the entire site... The linearity of the early days, the multiple paths of adolescence (where only one path is right), marriage, work, elderly life, until the end, surrounded by your dearest people mourning over you.
Now, onto the technical aspects, and most importantly why did I give a 9.
Minimalism is the key word here; it's not quite the same Flixel-made spam we have seen over the weeks. Gameplay is simple yet effective, and yes, it doesn't need to be complex ALTHOUGH - like someone said before me - there's still roam for improvement.
1) Starting from the music... hell, I'd compose something for you instead of just a simple piano loop. Even if it fits the mood and all, but it's just too simple.
2) Graphics, well... there are mixed opinions about this, and mine is... they could be improved just a bit. What about some more colors or better textures?
3) Instead of just a hop'n'bop game, gameplay could be a little more "deep". What about adding some more obstacles, or some other basic abilities? Technically, the game is just a well-made maze with just one path to follow. Try to add some "tweaks" next time ;)
This is a great concept, developed into a slightly flawed masterpiece.
Looking forward to play a sequel or similar game from you. Good job,
