love the game.
Just finished playing your game and man do I love the concept. Thank you for making it.
Very fun and a bit difficult feels responsive
Quite enjoyable, also quite difficult, which isn't a bad thing by any means. Also the simple black, white, and grey pallet was a good choice for this.
Some tips for people wanting to get further:
- the enemy swordsman swing slow enough you can run past them without getting hit
- they also have friendly fire
- roll less, it moves you so far forward you can't react to a fast bird/large sword bearer
- the first two strikes of your 3 hit combo (hit j really fast) have small backwards hitboxes. you can hit birds flying behind you
- the large sword bearer hits with the sword. if you get close enough to their feet they cannot hit you
- the large sword bearers actually space slightly outside their range, you don't have to move
See this very low resolution example on Imgur
very fun :) i can't can't get pass 60 kills though :( any tips there are just too many people
Great game! I can never beat the boss though, he is insanely tough. Any tips guys?
PLEASE add a HERO mode,and more attacks
i love this game!
Please.. Add a Restart button
Nice game. Had fun playing it
how did you make the highscore?
Very nice! Created by one person within 48 hours animation graphics and all! :)
Very cool game! The graphics are basic, but the good choice of colours, nice animations and the music bring a really nice feel to it. The gameplay is simple too, but works really well and it's fun. I'd like to invite you to take part in this year's Game Development World Championship!
Can't get this to work. Using the Itch launcher app thingy. shame, looks cool.
Hey! Are you running the downloadable file or the web version of the game?
I think there needs to be some kind of jumping mechanic, since each move have a fair amount of lag behind it, making it hard to time and predict movements when the map is filled with enemies
it doesnt work for me, i just have black screen
what browser and what version are you running ?
are you on desktop or tablet or mobile ?
what operating system are you on ? MS Windows ? Mac ? Linux ?
Great game! But it seems roll is actually assigned to K instead of Space.
it's funnt the fact that you can keep rolling around the giant and he will attack all other enemies. In general, i like the game a lot. The gameplay and the art.
I love the simplicity of it - also find it hilarious because i find the birds to be the biggest threat of all XD you can stay at the big guy's feet and he can't touch you and the normal grunts are easily knocked back into oblivion - the birds however, i fail to roll past often and always slow me down/mess me up.
i cant get it to run, when i press launch, it comes up with an error saying that it couldn't find an executable, if anyone knows how to fix this please tell me.
From what I've noticed, this is a HTML game. So if you go into the folder where the game is installed, you will see some files and a "index.html". Open that with chrome or firefox and you will be able to play the game.
Really like how simple this game is to just pick up and play, good job!
o por dios que gran juego asi asta dan ganas de donar
Nice lil game, but could you make it so you don't have to close the window then start again?
Hey! I played this game a wile back in a video with another game, it was very short but this game was loads of fun the difficulty and simplicity made for a fun time! and brutal at the same time...
Is it possible to have a tutorial or even a source on this one?
The source is available already in the zip folder :)
That's a very nice game actually! Love the art a lot!
This is actually a pretty fun time waster. It would be a little nice to have a way to get health other than levelling up and maybe a progress bar for levelling though.
The game looks cool, but can you please not claim linux support when all you did what give a gamemaker project, without any compiled executable.
Edit: The itch.io desktop app seems to fails to launch it in browser properly. Making it in a short period of time is cool, but is it possible you could go back and do some tightening up?
Thanks for the comment.
If you are unable to run the HTML5 build on linux it may be something on your end, or maybe something on itch's end. You said you are trying to running it on the desktop app and it doesn't work?
The desktop app doesn't launch it right, but I went into the ~/.config/itch/apps/grave and ran it from there, it works in browser. It's something with the desktop app. I'll go to the github page later and see if anyone can figure it out.
