It gives me some exposure while the people who make the videos get something back in return. I fully support the monetisation of any video you make containing footage from my games. As long as you don’t claim to be the creator of my games, it’s all good! Throwing my name, SeethingSwarm, as the creator into the description or into the video itself is also always appreciated.

This could use a LOT of work.
The range of where you attack is way off.
The game play sucked...The only really good thing about this was..It didn't have enough pixels to lag.

SeethingSwarm responds:

Yeah, the hit detection is flawed and I know what I did wrong. Live and learn. I'll improve on that with the sequel. Sorry you thought this game only deserves 2 out of ten.


Rated 3 / 5 stars


game play was sh*t but the graphics, controls, etc were great although try to make it easier NOT to get swarmed bu the axe guys and spike ball guys.

SeethingSwarm responds:

Glad you liked the game. I agree that the gameplay can be improved a LOT, and I am working hard on that with the sequel. I hope it wont be such a big disappointment than this one was for most people.

Has potential

The game got monotonous quick, and didn't help that you sort of made the guard character a pecker. I mean, he would just hack anyone instead of showing any mercy. What kind of good guy is that/

Who said the guard was perfect or even a good guy? Humans arent perfect in real life, I wanted to make it a bit different than the usual game where the main character is always a goody tooshoes. This is medieval times where people are not as "civilised" as we are, and they see goblins as a menace.

Anyway, sorry you didnt like that. The guard is just doing what he thinks is best. Sometimes he is a bit unmerciful, but comparing to what they did to the other guard and also how important the princess is, I think his actions can be justified. I mean, he's under a LOT of stress. There's always the factor that he can also see his situation in the game as an opportunity. If he can rescue the princess, there might be big rewards. I'll let the gamer decide on what goes on in the guard's head and justify his actions by using an age old thing called imagination.

Very nice..but...

The gameplay was fun and the music was great. The only problem I had was that you couldn't do anything if two enemies happened to be hitting you at the right times. If you get out from behind your shield to try to run or jump or hit after one attacked you, the other would hit right then. Otherwise it was great =]

SeethingSwarm responds:

That rarely happens, but yes, it has happened to me and at least to a few other reviewers, and the combat system definitely needs improvement. This was the best I could do at the time and Im pretty proud of it seeing as I am still pretty new with making games. The sequel is under construction and I think Im good enough to fix the anoying flaws in the game and add some more exciting stuff to it. Glad you liked the game, thanks!
