I like this

I really do like this game, but two things really bother the fuck out of me. . .1. The combo keyboard/mouse usage. . . 2. The map is shit. I love the artwork and the sounds are brilliant. The whole game play is freaking awesome especially charging the weapon for a stronger attack. Fix the map, it is pretty much useless and decide on either keyboard or mouse play, not both. Number keys for quick slots would be nice to maybe, like 1 through 5? Oh, and thanx for giving a mute music option. . . that is a nice feature in any game. L8r.

Better than the original!

I like this game even better than the first one. It reminds me a lot of Secret of Mana.
My only complaint is that a few of the quests ask for you to make something that you've already made. Hence, it messes things up. If there was a way to still get the credit for making it just by having it in your inventory, that'd be great.

Very Good! Found a glitch

Your game is well made and I can see myself enjoying the late game. However, when I was messing around with the crafting, every time it failed to create something, a new loop of the music track would start on top of the original, resulting in like 10 loops of the same song. Very annoying as turning off the music only resulted in one loop turning off. Had to exit the game to get it to stop

Great game

I enjoyed playing it, graphics are great and music is nice.

But I wanted to address some issues:

1. While crafting, if you cancel it after pressing 'create item', the screen freezes.
2. Once, using the forge of nymphs, the game froze.
3. I found it annoying that you can sell the stick, only to find out there's a whole quest chain oing about it. Even though it is kind of my own fault, it would be nice if important unique items are made unsellable.
4. As your pet stays alive nicely, it's a bit unnecessary to have eggs drop at such a rate. Either one egg per species, or make it a rare drop. Running around with 7 eggs of the same species, taking up weight and unsellable, felt kind of annoying.

But overall a good game. (as far as the freezing is concerned, fortunately a save on every screen allows for a quick reboot)

Fantasic Job!

Playing the first one and beating it, then playing this one and beating it. You did such a fantastic job on this.

I am glad from the first one I said more inventory, enchanting armor, better pet healing came through. Of course, I'm not taking credit for this, I'm sure other people also suggested this.

-I was happy because of that because the inventory where I could hold more items, plus there is more items in this one.
-It is also nice that armor can be upgraded to a better armor than it once was. Making the stats better.
-Then finally the pets actually gained a lot more health and it wasn't tedious at all. Plus the health regenerated.

I liked how you changed the movement from the spaces to the free walking. It was easier to control, for me, the diagonal walking with my arrow keys which point a different way makes it confusing until after you get use to it.

It seemed like it was easier to get money in this one, that is okay, so I could buy more items. I wish I could of bought more items in the stores, like coal or gems, like each city having different items in stock.

Something I didn't like was no matter how high you stats, the iron or gems still needed the same amount of hits in order to break them to collect the stuff. It would have been nice to either make it so after like ever 30 STR. levels, it would take 1 less hit to acquire an item. Or introduce pickaxes to mine the rocks to make it easier.

Another dislike was how confusing it got, for me anyway, when I would enter an area and couldn't decide whether I had been there already or not. This being said, it could also tell you if you collected the special item, like Paladin's necklace, Angel's Tear, etc., in that area already and on the map it would show a check mark or something corresponding to that having obtained all items in that set world.

I would now like to suggest a skill tree, like the magic spells you had going there, for your melee stats, yes there were 3 melee skills, but may be more could be added, or other things like using the Assassin's Dagger gives you a temporary hide in shadow skill where enemies cannot see you.

Also, I would be nice to have passive abilities that are always on, they don't have to be super powerful, just something more to add to the game.

Also, yesterday, I was thinking of playing the first one to this game. But I was too tired to play it so I went to bed, I woke up and part 2 came up! Now I cannot wait until number 3 comes out. So exciting.

Thank you for making a wonderful game. Please continue making more and adding more content suggested by us, the players.
