IMPORTANT: Make sure CAPS LOCK is not on while playing this game, otherwise some buttons won't work. It's a flaw in the code, sorry about that...

The Rise of a KING takes a turn to the role playing genre, but still retains the action from its predecessor. If you havent played The Rise of a Knight, then there is a "Story so Far" section where you can watch a slideshow of what happened in the first game.

Explore the world in and around Stormguard Castle as you start off on your first day as a Knight. Times are getting dark with the current king and many others behaving strangely while more and more dangerous creatures appear, causing trouble all over the kingdom. You seem to be the only one to see the obvious corruption, and its up to you to dissolve this matter...

Hmm not bad

As a game critic its my job to find fault with a game i have played. First of all there are a few minor glitches with the buttons, obviously u have mentioned these but i hope u fix them in the nearby future. Also i would have liked more saves in the taverns or so besides in the castle, and it needs more spells like 'blizzard' or 'plague' other then that u did a good job. I give u a 8/10

Thanks! Glad you liked it. The only problem with the buttons is that caps lock should be turned off, that's all. More saves would have been good, I agree and more spells are always nice :)

Okay, thanks for the nine! I would have liked to get some constructive criticism though. I know this game isn't perfect at all, but if you gave some reasons why you thought it wasn't, then it might have been helpful and insightful.

Very enjoyable.

This is actually a very entertaining game. It isn't too complicated, it isn't too simple, it has got an pretty interesting storyline and some nice enjoyable slicin' n' dicin'.

There are some things however that could be improved. For example I was able to buy all the best gear before I even received the mission to kill the bandits, which was a bit early in my opinion. The game became VERY easy at that point onwards.

The other thing was a bug which prevented me from completing the bandit mission. Killed everything in the cave and opened the chest, twice, but it still wouldn't count as a completed objective.

Other than that however, a very entertaining and well made game.
Well done mate!

That glitch in the bandit cave is a bastard! Luckily it happens very rarely, but what a bummer that it happened to you twice in a row! I have no idea why it happens or how to fix it. Sorry! My only advice would be to try that mission again cuz it just can't happen 3 times. It just cant! Well, technically it can, but the odds are just not in its fasvour. Wish I knew how to fix it man, sorry again.

I might have been too generous with the coins you get from enemies cuz most people who have talked about the amount of money you get had also said that you get too much too fast. I'll remember that for future games.

Thanks for the review!
