This was pretty bland

The graphics are excellent but there is not much gameplay- the vast majority of enemies may be beaten by holding A and Left. There are few and very specific reasons to jump, and you almost never need to block except perhaps once against ranged attackers, since the reach of your sword is equal or greater that of all normal enemies. Bosses can be beaten by running back and forth on top of them while holding A and using a special attack as you earn it to speed things along. This also means that the heavy attack is useless. Perhaps if enemies did more damage, were harder to get by, or you regenerated less health between scenes, this might be interesting.

SeethingSwarm responds:

Yeah, regenerating less health might help. I did intend this game to be quite easy and very forgiving to the player, but some people complain that it is way too easy and the A button along with running renders all the other moves useless. Well, you do need to block every now and then like you said, and jumping does have its uses even though it doesnt come often at all. The secondary attack has its uses against certain enemies and the power move is just plain fun. But that's just my opinion. I think I might have made this game a bit too easy. Thanks for your review, it had some helpful feedback in it.

You are giving me 1?

Really Boring

I played the first level and thought the game was kinda ok......but after the second level it got really easy and boring, maybe if it was a little harder and more action moves i would have been fun, but otherwise it was a bad game.

SeethingSwarm responds:

Sorry to disappoint.

SeethingSwarm responds:

You must be over-exaggerating just a bit, but I know, the all-powerful "a" button is a bit too useful for its own good. Im sorry that spoiled the game for you...

SeethingSwarm responds:

This was supposed to be a simple hack n slash game. Somehow people expected something different. Im sorry that this game disappointed you so much that you thought my efforts deserved a zero out of ten.

Needs improvement

Theres nothin good i can say about game. There is only one weapond, the monsters are almost the same, the levels are just about the same, and the attacts suck. If you can improve all of this then your game will get a 10/10

SeethingSwarm responds:

If I can improve from those things then I'll go form 0 to 10? Wow!
