Too many Lord of the Rings references...

The game play was very simple, but annoying. It would've been much better with voices... (Considering the voice acting was good.)

Yeah, voice-acting would be better, but it also cranks up the filesize tremendously. This is just a flash game, not Oblivion. Too many LOTR references? Where? Cuz there's goblins? Oh yeah, maybe the big Spider Queen is one...

The gameplay is simple yes, it is meant to be just a hack 'n slash game, nothing more, sorry you found it annoying.

It was ok

I liked it but it seem a bit to slow paced for me and when a bunch of enemies are on me it's a bit hard to counter them besides just putting up you shield till you're full health but even then the rangers and ones with longer ranged weapon are hard to hit. I couldn't really get far with this however the looks were nice and the death scenes were very good and enjoyable to see. And as a first game I have to say great job.

Thanks. I am still pretty new with flash games, but this was not my first game. I submitted The Rise of a Knight under my new username SeethingSwarm, but there are 2 other games and a few movies of mine submitted under my old username SecretSecretary. Check them out if you get the chance :)

I agree this game does get a bit slow-paced at times, but I guess its just a matter of opinion if you like it or not. I think it added to the atmosphere and immersiveness. Thanks for the review!

Rated 4 / 5 stars


but I couldn't get past the part with the goblin archers.almost everytime, there was a guy with a shield and sword or a guy with a spear,a big guy with a mace/spiked bowling ball,and an archer who was behind all of them wha attacke two seconds after them.IT is also very repetitive.

I dont know what to say, try to use your special move with strategy and dont let them become enough to overwhelm you. Kill them swiftly my young rising knight :)
Glad you thought it was good!
