Great game, just a few minor bugs that might be "features":

If you time it right, you can not take damage from the big knight's sword by being in the middle of an attack such as a stab, only works if you've killed something with a previous attack and then are stabbing the corpse. 

the hitbox on the big knight is just a way that it allows you to stand at his base and attack him without him being able to fight back, and as long as all you do is attack, he will not move and anything from behind you will normally die to form his sword and the other knights will line up behind him. birds will fly though, but your attacks should kill them as well. breaks the game a little, at least makes it cheesable :/

sometimes randomly one of your attacks will be super strong and send the enemies flying, still don't understand what causes it, (visa versa, even to themselves) kinda funny and goofy.  :]

Don't know if this is supposed to be how it works, but you can kill birds behind you by attacking in front of you. I think this may happen because it seems like the damage is taken if a sprite is inside the little white line that makes it look like the sword is moving super fast. 

Also, don't know if this is actually a game mechanic or not, but out of nowhere when you kill a bird, sometimes they bursts will a bunch of colors and doesn't drop EXP. 

Finally, it's probably a game mechanic that enemies can deal damage to each other, and it doesn't matter if it's a glitch or not, it's great. 

how do i play the downloaded version?

This game is old but gold, i like it :)

Check out my game

darksouls, but your that ONE skelleton that messes everyone up every first playthrough

Friggin birds bro. Messed me up. I got hit like 7 times because a bird hit me.

You only lack one function, which is the pause function.


There is no pause in battle, only success or death. A hesitation means death, a mistimed slash is death, a wrong step is death; a pause is the sin of the battlefield.


very nice game...but does it have....LORE

I like how you put ld33 on some of the tombstones

Nice game

just hire the big ones and it won‘t be too hard to get hundreds,even thousands.nice game still.very interesting idea. really enjoyed it.

Nice game 

wth bro

very well made and very fun, It feels a bit rushed, but considering the time frame its impressive.


This game is actually superfu


cool game but why the actual hell is attack j? why not mouse click or smth.

game with no mouse = no mouse, no mouse no click use buttons mouse for aim no aim so button

the art and animation are beautiful and the gameplay is fluid, if it had controller support it would be better because it is very dynamic, but it's a good time.

a arte e animação estão bonitas e a jogabilidade fluida, se tivesse suporte à controle seria melhor pois é bem dinâmico, mas é um bom passa tempo.




how do kill big guy

The crows are soo annoying.

Nice! Very solid combat for a LD entry

Consider adding some sort of heal that drops from enemys? It would make the game easier to deal with the crows

why the crows
