Kenxeus found a critical bug that prevented him from beating the assassin boss. The problem seemed to be related to my encryption software that's making certain codes unusable.

*Update - 29/12/09 The game just got updated! The bug's fixed :D
*Update - 31/12/09 Released Soul Arms version 1.2 with several bug fixes.

i'm sorry to hear you spent that long on this game

because it's really not that good. i can tell you tried, but everything from the combat being clunky ( as in i can't move/attack without stopping dead ) to the fact that the controls actually prevented me from making kills, and it just goes on.

it's not bad, but certaintly not indicative of the 18 months you put into it ( if you really did)

very nice

love the story...but here is the problem...health potion are needed so you need a cash system and shops. the boss with the giant sword....very bad choice if you used you soul blast to only tell you oopss.....look for the glowing white ball. the evation thing was hard as it is....to dash back and dash foward..but when magic can track you and you still can not evade the explosion.That hurted you health....more so with 5 wizards spaming with fire balls. but so far very nice.Good job.

Awesome story

That sword thing took forever to kill.

Story not worth the trouble

I liked the story, but the gameplay could have been better. It wasn't fun, the nearly hidden save button at the end of every stage made for a lot of replaying, and limited lives across the entire game made it not worth finishing even for the story.
