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.

WOW!

This is almost as good as some handheld games out there (except the graphics). The music's forgettable, but the story is really, really good, good pacing. My only real complaint is that there is no reliable way to avoid long-range damage, as there is no block button and some attacks (cannon golems) get to you before you can back-dash. Other than that, Freakin' Great Game!

Utterly awesome

one of the best games I've found on here. But I have to agree with some of the others, there's room for improvement, but still this is one of the best games on here.
