A dark action-adventure game about tragedy, loss, revenge, and the emptiness thereafter. A fast paced sidescroller with an unfolding storyline set in a magical world. A simple woodcutter is taken by a black wind and gets swept off to the end of all things.

A walkthrough is available on my userpage.

Bad check...

..yes, the controls are sometimes impossible to use effectively (i.e. when two wolves attak you simultaneously front and rear, in the forest) without being wounded...so a game that might have a "9" is wasted by a bad timing of the enemies...

You can kill a bat and two wolves coming from opposite directions with two swift moves! You just have to practice! This game was not meant to be a walk in the park, it actually takes concentration, patience and persistence to get through a forest swarming with wolves and bats, after that it gets even harder when demons and ghosts etc arrive... When you get into a fight, chances are you will get hurt, the thing is just who gets hurt the most... that's what most people dont get anymore because games are made so easy. But I guess if you want to please the masses, you have to please the masses, so thanks for the review and the input, much appreciated!

It was cool

Heavy with exposition, and a little lacking in gameplay, which ultimately lead to me quitting the game upon reaching the witch.

In terms of story-telling, it's fine, though the writing could use to be more subtle - however, the real problem is that there just doesn't seem to be that much to the gameplay. I didn't encounter any difficulties that couldn't be solved by button mashing.

Anyway, a fine effort, and what I played I enjoyed - look forward to your next submission.

Decent concept, bad execution

I think you need to go back and rework some of the coding for this game. I dealt with the first three levels before I got tired of dying due to the game, rather than my playing. The story seemed OK for the length that I played, but I couldn't help but feel like I had played this exact sort of storyline a hundred times before.

The hitboxes for some enemies are too small, while the character's is too big, and the stun immunity is almost nonexistent. In the forest, whenever 2 wolves and a bat came at you, you had to pray that you would only lose half of your life, rather than all of it. Sometimes a zombie would spawn inside me while I was taking out other zombies, and it would kill me before I could react at all.

What was that?

Ok you have a good idea, here but HOW do you get past whatI assume is a boos on level 3? He just hits you-- thus freezing you in place (which is annoying to start with please fix that)--then jumps into the air where you can't touch him! And if you tryto run away (and I did), he can run twice as fast as you anyway! WTF why did you make the first boss (if that's what he is) so hard? Also, when a boss appears, you shouldn't have to fight zombies at the same time. That's just un-sportsmanly.
Fix these problems, make the motion and sound more realistic, and maybe make it bigger, and you've got a good game.

First of wall, there is a walkthrough on my userpage, check it out. Secondly, you can basically play the game like you want to. You can first get rid of all the zombies and then fight the demon, or you can do them at the same time which I find quite fun. The demon is really easy to kill once you know how, and you CAN hurt him while he is jumping over you, just use your axe or the horse's hooves. That's actually the way to kill him, but check out the walkthrough where you will find a detailed explanation on how to beat that first demon, one of many many more to come later on in the game...
Thanks for the review!
