Very good

Very, very good. Excellent fighting game with a taste of RPG into it: Here comes the lone swordsman, unleashed like an hurricane upon the forces of darkness! Well, when you insvest heavily into the speed stat, it sure looks like it ;)

However (here comes the few things you might wanna consider for your next work; and this game is STILL awesome)...

1 Why do the "hordes of darkness" always come into a pack of four? And why do they keep walking so slowly while their buddies are being sliced before their eyes?
2 You might reach the Master's lair at, what, lvl 14, but I wasn't able to beat him on normal till lvl 24 - using all my items (5 potions, 50 shurikens, and 15 grenades, the max you can carry) in the process.
3 Hence, I had to redo every level at least... what, twice?, which would have gotten kinda boring if the ass kicking wasnt so cool to watch. But you might have wanted to make a couple more zones.
4 Maybe more stylish npc characters, and women and children amongst the villagers. No need to introduce dialogue tought.

Glad you like my game :)

The reason why they're so slow is because I've realised most people get extremely frustrated with quick enemies. It's like that in most games. They do run at you sometimes...

nice homage to CC.

Like the amount of detail that went into the backgrounds and the length of the game in total is pretty beefy. The animations however are downright painful. If it wasn't for the fact that you copied all the gameplay elements from CC from head to toe, I would've lost interest long ago. Considering that your rise to king/knight games were basically broken gameplaywise, I really can't give you props for gameplay, since you emulated CC.

I know its nice to keep all that sponsor money to yourself, but sometimes for the sake of the game you should bite the bullet and bring on a real animator.

SeethingSwarm responds:

Glad you like it!

I am a real animator, maybe not a good one, but I'm real :)
I love doing animation even though I'm not that good at it...

I don't think I copied CC from head to toe. There are many games just like it out there, so I think I'm just in the same genre. There was a lot of similar stuff in this game than CC, because I love CC to bits and this is a tribute :)


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Awesome game!!

I loved the game and i'm not sure if i have played castle crashers before but even so this game is really good i love the animation and the story.

although in some bits of the game when the enemys swarmed you it would be quite annoying when they keep chucking bombs and hitting you as soon as they got up and the bomb gurads later on in the game were particularly annoying at some points because they keep on chucking bombs constantly.

After getting past them and getting higher up in levels i loved the move swift kill, and also a suggestion maybe if you decide to make another one but maybe you could increase the amount of potions you can get but maybe you have to buy the upgrade so you would start off with the basic 5 and then later on buy an upgrade to carry five more, also maybe you could make some weapons upgradeable and another thing maybe a block button would be good but while using block you would still take damage but not as much.

thats really all i can say about it now is that its an awesome game with nice graphics and really good gameplay, i give it 10 stars, a vote of five and i'm adding it to my favourites.

SeethingSwarm responds:

Awesome! Thanks!

You have some great ideas and I've thought of implementing a few of them into my game, but I just didn't have the time. I also thought being able to have a companion that fights with you would be aweosme, and ridable creatures (mounts)...


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Pretty good.

It was a decent game, fun for a few minutes. The only problem I had with it was the predictability of the enemies moves. One of them would always try to get behind you no matter what, even if you attacked them.

I liked it, thanks for the flash.

So glad you like my game, thanks!

It's not a historical fact that ninjas ever existed, and there are many different stories about where they came from and what they are. Even woman who seduces rich lords and then kill them were known as ninjas. I chose to use an ancient japanese idea of where they came from. Ninjas were not trained by the government or military, but they were poor, oppressed vilagers who trained themselves in martial arts to fight against the system. In this game, you are one of those ninjas...
