Difficult, but in a good way.

Felkon's Dungeon is pretty difficult, but this is a good game! Maybe you could add a bonus that will only increase a stat (speed, strength, health) by only a very small bit after you complete a mission. Other than that, it is a pretty good game! Keep up the good work!

Thank you. A lot of people have been saying that they would have liked more moves and some kind of upgrading system. I'll keep that in mind for future games. When I make an rpg I'll put a proper stat system into the game, but The Rise of a Knight was just meant to be pure action and adventure, no stats and numbers. And Im glad you found it difficult and challenging because a lot of people complained that this game is way too easy.

My Kind of Game

Very nice game - I completely enjoyed the graphics and animation, and the gameplay itself was ok. As other people have said, it was slightly lacking in complexity, but I still found it a bit challenging at some moments: I had to use my shield strategically and time my attacks right to win (although I guess this may not have been totally necessary, based on other reviews). It was fun nevertheless.

As soon as I saw the title, I knew MaestroRage's work would be in it. :P Good choice of music. The ending cinematic was pretty suspenseful as well -- enough so to make me look forward to a sequel!

Thank you very much :)
Im glad you liked the game and used all the moves stragetically even though its not completely necessary. I was afraid people might find the ending very unsatisfactory and its nice to hear you liked it. I dont know if I'll start with the sequel very soon. Maybe I'll do some other projects first.

By the way your new site looks great and I think you totally nailed the whole "professional" feel. I'll visit it later and have a proper look around :)
Thanks again!
