Go play Castle Crashers.

Its a good game, but its not your game. Its Toms and Dans game. Tribute rarara Tribute tribute, yeah okay its a tribute, but what I don't understand is why don't people just go and play Castle Crashers? this is Castle Crashers but just with flawes and worse art. (No offence intended, I do like your art, but Dans is better) so yeah in conclusion, its just a crummier version of Castle Crashers. Go play Castle Crashers.

Dan's art is the best and I certainly agree with you that he's much, MUCH better than me. I'm not even trying to do the same art style as him. I'm a HUGE fan of CC. I guess the reason why anyone would play this over Castle Crashers is because everyone can play it for free.

Even though there's a lot of features from Castle Crashers, I still believe that there's also a lot of original stuff in this game. A few people have even said this game reminds them of Golden Axe. Long before Castle Crashers there were many games like it. CC with all of its hilarity is definitely not the first of its kind,... The Behemoth just brough the genre back.

Anyway, sorry to disappoint :(

I am truly in awe at how great this game is. The fact it is taking me away from one of my animations (which I hate not doing) shows how good this is. It does have a strong Castle Crashers feel and is a great tribute. The jumping was half nascence half kick-ass, but the space button did not fit the control scheme for me so it was rejected from my play. The verity of characters was nice, but their ability to spam you with attacks was annoying and was a main reason I needed 5 potions for many of the levels. The bosses were challenging, but I feel you could have made two new ones for the 2nd to last bosses (the double super soldiers). In their place I would have put twins, one green and one blue, Green would have double Flails( maces attached to a handle with a chain) and blue with a giant sword (also known as a bastard sword). Only one other thing bothered me with the bosses, which was the absence of pauses (accept for the swamp monster). In Castle Crasher many bosses give you a chance to hit them; an example would be the Ice King, who laughs every now and again. Finally the music was great and fit well; you did an awesome job making it. For a free game this was amazing and I hope you continue to make great games that everyone can enjoy. Keep doing what you do best and give yourself a pat on the back.

p.s. it is awesome to how you answer everyone's reviews, it is something I always like to see here at NG.

Wow, thanks for the awesome review!
It's sad the spacebar felt awkward for you, because I think jumping would have helped you a lot so that you wouldn't have needed 5 potions for a lot of the levels, but still, it's neat that you managed without it. I've played this on a laptop recently and realised that the spacebar is seriously awkward on a laptop, cuz it's smaller and a bit more to the right... maybe you played on one? I'm not sure which button would be better than the spacebar...

I would have loved to put more different kinds of enemies and bosses into the game, but the ugly truth is that I just did not have the time for it. This game took way more work and time than I initially thought, and it ended up with a lot more variety than I planned :)

I really liked it, especially the option to go back and play the previous levels. Also loved the way you buy stuff. It trully reminded me of Golden Axe!

Very nice

But are there any differences between the characters other than the looks?
And it gets rather repetitive.
Still, awesome job!

I'll just copy and paste what I told scoopeman below...

The characters are basically just different "looks". They are also a way to play the game with one character one way and using another one to play the game a different way without having to lose any character's saved data. I would have loved to make the characters different from each other like their attack moves and stuff, but it would have meant months of more work, and I simply don't have the time for that.
