>.<

Most frustrating game ever. The first boss, the big mechanical flying thing that shoots lightning, impossible to beat, you gotta make it a bit easier

Wow !

I loved this game !
I added it to my favs.
One thing that bothered
me was the repetative music
not much action either ...
I didn't like the fact that you cant
see your armor
loved the length ...i thought it was
going to be over by the time
i clened out the mine but loved
what came after I do wish that
there were more items

any other than that i just thought
your game was incredibly addicting

Nice game.

There's not really that much I can add that hasn't already been said in the last page of posts, though I did notice a glitch. I bought the Battle Mode unlock from a merchant, and I still can't use it. I've got my level 15 save file still up, but it's saying that I don't have it bought yet. That took a lot of beating up helpless human skulls with explode to get. =(

On that note, I don't think that explode is completely useless because at the point that you get it, it'll make really easy leveling in the mines till about level 12. =D Though slash kinda died at that point...so yeah. I think that'll need just a bit of balancing.

Oh, the mini puzzles at the end of the game were pretty fun to play with, it made me get out a notebook and write down all the possibilities for one of them. You should have a few more of those interwoven in the game, they're always a nice touch.

Since you're addressing the issue of having extra characters in the next game, I'm not that worried about this, but I agree with an earlier comment:

Either A: The monsters should have a tell. (Though I did notice that the Pumpkin Queen only attacks when it's powered up.)

Or B: You should allow the main character to recuperate skills or even mana while they're healing, it'll make blocking a more realistic and useful option. At least you didn't put us in a situation like with those snow birds in the first one: I wasted almost 30 minutes trying to get to level 4. =(

Anyways, that being addressed, this is probably the best Flash RPG I've played on here since Absalom died off in 2003. That says alot...both positively and negatively about Newgrounds... <_< >_> Don't take me head! Anyways, 5/5 in my book. You only got an 8 because of the average of the scores.

-Please send me a private message, I need more info-
About the glitch: When you go speak to the merchant and try to buy the battle mode again, does it say "You already have it"? Or is it like you've never bought it. Btw, you need to save your game right after you buy it, because if you go beat the boss right after, it doesn't save your game.

Thanks for your review, we will keep your suggestions in mind.

Wow. This rocks like the Punk-o-Matic, biotch!

This. Game. ROCKS.

I can't say that enough. If Jimi Hendrix burst from the ground with a guitar in his hand and launched straight into the Star Spangled Banner + Purple Haze, it would rock about as hard as this game rocks.

Heh. Mindless, indulgent praise aside, this game does rock, but it could use some improvement.

1. Some people just like power-leveling, especially in a game where EXP is easy to come by. (DON'T CHANGE THIS!) Remove (or else greatly hike up) the level cap for the next chapter, please. I want to power-level to the point where I can anhilliate my enemies with one or two uber-spells or wicked-sick skill combos.

2. Can we please have some single-target offensive spells that don't cost so damn much? I really never used the Explosion spell but for a few times out of boredom (power-leveling when a save point was literally RIGHT THERE), and X-Explosion only once on the final boss (I was unimpressed). Frankly, you get much better use out of your MP by casting Heal and using your regular attack.

3. What was the girl on the train reading?

4. More skills, please. Maybe a triple-stab, or a Double-Slash?

5. The monster animations were kind of sad, except for the darklings and the final boss - more of animations like that! Also, Gus' animations could have used some work.

6. Maybe in addition to his chance at dodging, Gus should have a chance of negating say, a quarter damage by parrying. I always thought he needed an animation where he parried the incoming attack with his rapier. (You could do this the way Super Mario RPG did - hit the button at just the right moment, perform an Active Defend)

7. For the Dodge, how about making it look a bit less stilted? As it is, Gus just kind of takes a step upwards - more like he got shoved out of the way. How about making him jump, or roll, or hit the deck.

8. In addition to the above, perhaps a small chance to actually get in a counter-attack (Maybe at half damage) would be nice?

9. Perhaps some additional attack animations? Not everything should be a single jab - he should also make slashes and cuts, and maybe the odd move where he bashes the enemy with the pommel of his rapier.

10. Probably more work than you want to do, but maybe alter the way Gus looks in combat (if not on the main screen) depending on the equipment he's wearing? Say, make a "Naked Gus" graphic, by which I don't mean a literally naked Gus, but with him wearing only a flowery white shirt, pants, and bare feet - like a pirate. Then apply other graphics layed above him depending on what he's wearing. This would, IMO, help immersiveness. (If you're going to do this, it would also be nice to have Gus' combat portrait on his equipment screen, so you could see what his new threads look like without going and picking a fight.)

11. May I suggest a new Skill, called "Pistol"? An attack which is not greatly powerful - say, (depending on the Pistol you have equipped - more money sinks, yay), it does somewhere between 75%-125% of what Gus does on a normal attack... BUT, after Gus spins around and fires his pistol, he gets another turn immideately. (You know... Like a pirate, he dosen't fight fair. :) )

12. Perhaps add a random chance for a critical attack, or a random chance to make a double attack?

That's all that comes to my mind for now. Make more! This game rocks!
