After countless millenia of imprisonment in a long forgotten tomb, the lord of the undead is finally freed by careless grave robbers. The world is about to change forever....

Armed with a flail and an arsenal of spells and combat moves your ultimate goal is to collect ancient artifacts which are needed to open a portal to the realm of the dead.
These artifacts are guarded by the kings of Gonia. There are 8 kings each belonging to a different race of enemies.

Controls:

Movement : Arrow Keys or W,A,D

Attack: Space or U

Block: Shift or I ( Enemies attacking you from behind won't be blocked )

Spells: Numberkeys or Numpad. Hold 'down' to cast the fireball spell less steep or down, if jumping.

CombatMoves: First you will need to learn the combat move after leveling up. The key combination
needed is written in the description of the combat move.
Charge: Forward + Forward + Attack
Jump: Forward + Down + Attack use the left/right keys to steer in flight
Teleport: Forward + Forward + Block
Stunattack: Forward + Backward + Attack
Slambomb: Down + Down + Attack use the left/right keys to steer in flight
Slambomb also works when jumping.

IMPORTANT: You can make combos by rapidly using combat moves. Press the key combination for the next combat move BEFORE the first one is finished. This combat move is then queued. You will receive damage boni to your combat moves and extra experience if you are able to create longer combos.

If you think the game is TOO EASY try the HARD and INSANE mode. You will also receive much more experience,more attribute and skill points!

***********************
ABOUT BUYING ITEMS:

Many people seem to disapprove the idea of an item shop. This is a bit unfair. The ad revenues are rapidly decreasing while the effort to make a good game is rapidly increasing. As developpers we are dependant on other income sources to make a living. One possibility would be to ask for donations, in our case however we added a set of special items as a sign of gratification for the donator. The items aren't necessary to experience the game to the full, since you get special items after each king and the game is easy enough to beat without any extra items. In fact the game wasn't conceived to have virtual goods, it was the only way for us to (hopefully) cover the development costs (half a year) since we had no luck in finding a sponsorship.

So we hope that you don't downrate the game because of the shop, since it's just another way of accepting donations which as we think is more desirable for the players. Besides you can get heyzap coins for FREE by just filling out some SURVEYS.

UPDATE:
1.1
fixed some minor bugs and added some new background graphics. Also the normal mode is more difficult.
***********************

Noted Criticism:
- More different types of AI/Enemies ( Catapults, wizzards and so on)
- More Combatmoves
- Finesse & Magic to have more influence
- Spells with less recharge time/ to be an alternative to the melee fighting
- NPCs & quests
- Harder levels

Thanks for the constructive criticism. We will consider everything if there should be a sequel!

Controls are bothersome.

You need to stretch your hands in the most twisted positions to get the right stuff working in time. However, this is my new favorite game on NG.

The Shop?

I think it ruins the game that you have to spend real money to play it to its full. The very least you could have done is make monsters drop coins every once in a while. On the subject of ad revenue, ads also work in sites other than Newgrounds. By the way, great game! I hope to see more from you guys.


OneExtraGames responds:

By the way, to get coins, you don't have to spend real money. You can alternatively take surveys and get the coins for free. Just try it out.

cool came but

overall design its a very good game in every aspect,
however im not sure if its okay to prompt users to buy game items with real money, i smell some scam here


OneExtraGames responds:

We understand your concerns but from our point of view, development of this type of game is impossible with ad revenue only. Development took about half a year.

And it's just about 5cent/item in the beginning. Coins can even be gained for free by taking surveys/offers in Heyzap. You don't really have to spend bucks.
