Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

The biggest flaw by a long way in this game is that you should make it so the mouse click to drop doesn't drag the character to the cursor. This was extremely irritating when trying to control the directions with the keyboard and the drop with the mouse (as trying to drop with the keyboard while moving with the same directional keys is terrible controls)

I tried to enjoy this game, but this resulted in countless deaths that were the game's fault due to control, including at least 3 failed drops a run on the way to fight the boss. Any fun and joy I had to begin with was swiftly replaced with annoyance. You should definitely change this, as frankly it is the single biggest flaw in the whole game.

As for other flaws, it was fun, but the upgrade system was far too drawn out, it literally demanded hours to buy things which again isn't fun, make it so everything is cheaper in future games as the price doesn't add difficulty, it only adds redundant farming. Finally the game automatically threw me onto survival after beating the boss and didn't seem to let me change, considering it looks like a medal was placed for speedrunning the boss, this isn't good.

As for the good aspects of the game, everyone else has been obsessing over them so there is no need to repeat them. A fun game, but in the end of the day made too irritating to want to continue due to the homing into cursor drop.

Knightmare Tower is simply one of the best games on Newgrounds over the past year.
Fun,creative and doesn't get boring at all, even after grinding to buy everything in the shop.
The power ups work... They aren't the best but they work and help the experienced allot.
I'm not sure if this fits this game at all but it has the Mega Man X feel to it.
You know Like X meeting Zero, and Zero is stronger and the journey is getting to become as strong as Zero or even better. (Egoraptor said it best). but as you progress in Knightmare Tower, you see enemies that are allot tougher to kill, and the power ups make you stronger and the stronger enemies become the weak ones.
I for one enjoyed the boss battle, but I don't think it fit...
I'm not sure how to explain it but the boss felt out of place in my opinion.
And I also don't like how you can only have 3 quest at a time, I guess there is a good reason for it but I'd rather have all the quest open at one time so I can zone in on the easy ones.
I love the character, and I'd be open to a sequel or even a different adventure with this particular Knight character.
I'm not sure why I like the Knight so much, but I'd like to play as him again.
Overall this game was an amazing surprise and I look forward to future installments...?
