I had a lot of fun, but there are a ton of faults.

First off, the level rankings are pointless. After the first one, there is no more point to trying for an A rank. I got A ranks on all the levels and was rewarded with absolutely nothing. Not to mention the rankings make very little sense. I can put virtually no effort into survival, die 10 times, some of them in very stupid ways, and still get rank 'A' for deaths; yet I can also blow through the level at top speeds and still not get 'A' rank speed. I literally never got less than a 'B' rank on anything except the time.

Next, the mechanics. Mostly it worked well, but I noticed some bugs (especially in later stages.) In stage 3-4-3 I got punched into a wall and my character froze up. I had to exit to the map, and I somehow lost a level when I did so. Also, when I replayed stage 3-3 the first time, the diamond didn't appear. I was just sort of stuck at the end there. Outside of bugs, I was really annoyed by the wall-jump mechanic. It was almost impossible to have it NOT happen, which was a problem for all those times I needed to fall quickly. I never even pushed left of right on the pads for the wall-jumping; it just kind of happened every time. It wasn't so bad, but the problem got more annoying because there wasn't really an animation for wall sliding. It still looked like the guy was standing there, just going slower.

The diamond system also seemed a bit superfluous. Yeah, there were some neat items for sale, but the fact that they didn't help to complete the game, and didn't come with any sort of medal failed to present any more reason to keep playing.

Also, the level design. Mostly it was pretty decent, but putting checkpoints in range of those stupid rocket hammers served no point but to annoy me. Some areas dropped off into death without any kind of warning, when they looked like they might lead someplace interesting. Otherwise, it was challenging in a good way.

About the enemies, the difficulty separation between foe and field was utterly ridiculous. I just kept accumulating potions and never once got killed via loss of hp, but with spikes and pits everywhere I died kind of a lot. Nowhere was the difference more pronounced than with the bosses. My first time against the fish boss, I just kind of stumbled everywhere. I didn't even notice the jump pads, got hit by literally everything, and just kind of swung my sword randomly. Yet I still won.

However, that is still preferable to the spider boss. I go through the whole game relying on care and skill only to be treated to a final boss like that. I just had to keep trying until I got the platforms to line up right. It wasn't even a platforming challenge, just waiting for the game to set up a course where it won't kill you for a minute.

The cutesy aesthetic, original levels, and decent controls and execution would make up for moronic mechanic decisions and stupid foes, but there were two big problems. First, the lag: I'm not sure I can blame you for this, but the controls sometimes seemed sluggish to respond, and the screen would just kind of inch along in certain areas. That's a big problem in a precision platforming game.

Lastly, the medals. I know there not an essential part of the game, but the implementation here was just terrible. You include a ranking system but not the beautifully common 'A rank on all levels' medal. You include diamonds and extra buyable stuff, but no medals for that. It seems like a lot of effort was put into trying to make RE-playing the levels seem rewarding, but somehow the most obvious reward just escaped you. Instead you gave us 'Millionaire.'

I actually went through and got A rank on all levels because I assumed that had to give me 1,000,000 coins or something, but no. Apparently for all the diamonds and rankings and good level design the only 100 pt. medal you saw fit to include is most easily earned by spending several hours redoing the same early, easy level just for the hell of it. So this game gets an award from me:

~Dumbest Possible Achievement Award~

Congratulations.

fantastic game. the only problem with it is when you level up, i had leveled the combat all the way up before putting any in the health, and for some reason the hat color won't seem to change now. Also, you can put more than max in a category on the level up screen

This is definitely one of the best flash games I've ever played. It's so much fun, I just can't stop playing! The graphics are smooth and cute and the NPCs are all so unique and funny. I love the "sidequests"!
Although, maybe it's a glitch or maybe I'm dumb but I can't find the ruby in level 3-3. I fell down and landed on this little spot on the right but there's...nothing.
Otherwise: awesome!
