What happens when you have to start at the end of the game and the first thing is to defeat the final boss?

Deified is a retro pixel art platform adventure game with 6 levels of jumping, shooting, clinging, and gliding fun. Each time you finish a level you must "sacrifice" an ability, Will you face the next level without the ability to run or swim? How important is dash or glide to get to the beginning?

This game was made in about a week for the 2022 Jern Jam! There wasn't a lot of testing or balance so apologies up front for that. A few bugs are showing up from people playing it on stream that will be looked at later, hopefully.

Hope you enjoy it!

Had a lot of fun! Its really cute, every level was fresh and pretty. The sound is perfect. I am not good at these games so jumping and climbing walls was tough for me but it felt smooth. well done

Thanks! Had a lot of fun playing. I suck at these games (and most others) so as long as you enjoyed it.
