wow omg

this is really a great game that's worth playing. Frankly, i hate it when i get knocked back if i failed to jump over fire or, some enemies from above.

But good game overall. Happy Hallowe'en!

Like the it's quite challenging on times bit to hard when you get attacked by 3 at once, but other then that no complains keep it up.

Oh gosh.

Oh gosh. Oh yep, this is quite hard.
Multiple enemies from the front, back and above doesn't exactly help. The horse can't attack them all at once, neither can the woodcutter without getting hurt.
I say that stay still, jump, go backwards or attack to avoid these idiotic monster attacks before killing them. xD;
But it's really a good game with a great story.

Suggestions:
Save points. Either from a menu or pass new parts of the story.
Get attacked once, blink for a second to avoid repeated damage.
Maybe pickups for more weapons like guns, torches or magics?

Thanks for the insight. Yep, it would seem difficulty and save points are the biggest concern so far amongst the masses. I thought the game was short enough to have save points only after every level, but maybe not. Glad you liked the story!

very nice but very (I mean VERY) hard

I loved the graphic style of the game, it's very simple and still nice. The plot is also good. The trouble starts when you have to play it. Becouse it's nearly impossible, even the Dark forest level is unfairly hard, and later it just gets worse! I checked your walktrough but it doesn't make it much easier. As I wrote the unfair things start right in the dark forest when the enemies coming mostly from all possible directions (front, back, air) at the same time! And top of that, when I miss just one of them, it takes with a single attack 3 or more health bars!!!! Then the undeads: chopping their heads is pice of cake, but that demon is ridiculus! And I can't do what you wrote in the walktrough, that I should kill 'em all before the encounter of the demon becouse they are always coming, they have endless numbers. So I will not have time to do the tricks with the demon, you wrote becouse of the zombies. (But I would hardly have time to do that without them too!) And the demon takes also 3 or more health bars with a single hit! Once I miacleusly managed to get trough that level (still don't know how) and (of course) the haunted forest gets even more unfair (yes, not harder, but more unfair!!!). The trees chopping continuosly, there is no way to get trough without getting hurt, but mostly there is no way to get trough with getting hurt either!!!! Becouse as usualy the hits paralize me for a few seconds and before I can do anything I get another hit! You say I should learn their rythm, well screw theri rythm, they are chopping so fast that whenever I start running I end up getting killed! I never got to a further level so I can't comment them but I'm pretty sure that they are just more and more ridiculus.
A good thing in the game that when I get killed I can start the same level not from the begining. But I don't like that there is no savegame, so if I reopen the window for some reason I have to start the whole game over.
My suggestions are:
1. Savegame!!!
2. Try to redesign the damages, so that when I get hit I loose really only 1 health bar. I mean that the enemies hit me only once per attack, and not continuosly as long as they contact me (like it happens yet).
3. A cheat mode. Maybe some mazochists like that ridiculus hardiness the game has, but for those who don't, an invulnerability cheat would be really helpful.
If you make those changes I suggested I'm sure your game will be much more enjoyable.

Hahahahaha! Yeah it is a diffucult game and sorry if its so difficult that it feels unfair, but I usure you many people has gotten through the game. Those demons are cake once you know how to kill them, and the haunted woods is just all about patience and concentration. Sorry if it was too hard for you. And thikns for the suggestions!

Wow

This game was definitely one of the better ones on this site. I liked the silhouette style you have here, and the music and style of animation put you in the mood of the moment. I wanted to save the people in the fire :(. I saw his wife burning and thought ".....Dang". Each level was just as entertaining, if not more, then the last. Those trolls were cool things, and I loved having the power of lightening. My only possible complaint is that the final bosses laugh got REALLY annoying REALLY fast. I wasn't frustrated during that level, so it wasn't because of that, but that's rather minor compared to the rest o the game which is GREATNESS! Good job, and again I have to say, I really liked the silhouette thing you had going. Thank you for taking the time to make this game and share it with us :)
