Knight Run is a fast-paced fighting game where your goal is to get as far as possible without dying. Along the way, you can fight enemies to gain experience and levels which allows you to learn skills to better fight off enemies.

This is also my first game, so please go easy on me and leave me some constructive criticism if you have any!

Eh... concept good, playability, kind of bad. As the last person said Z sometimes doesn't work. I found problems with the hit detection, and you should lighten up on the enemys in the beginning so that players can have a chance to level. Sometimes in the beginning it starts as 1 or 2, other times there's 5 wizards and archers! Please adrees these problems. Looks like there's a good game under those problems though. Btw, the music is great.

Thanks for your feedback, I really do appreciate it. :) I'll look into refining the hit-testing a little bit for the different enemy types.

Also, enemy spawn is completely random and each enemy type has a 1/4 chance to spawn every time a spawn is triggered. I'll lower the rates of the magician and warrior since they're the stronger enemies along with the archer possibly. Or I may lower the fire rate of the archer to make him a bit easier, as he is the easy ranged enemy.

I'm also planning to add a difficulty option to the game, creating an all-new easy mode and keeping the current game as hard mode.

As for Z, I haven't had any problems with it... Like I said, I'll look into it and see if there's any problems.

And last of all, the music. Thanks! I had a hard time finding good songs and I really liked the ones I used. Go give them a nice rating and even a review for their creators. ;)

Great idea for a game! I enjoyed it, but a lot of the time when I hit Z nothing happened. I made a Let's Play and posted it to YouTube under the same name if you want some more commentary on this.

Thanks! I'm not sure about that issue with pressing Z, I'll look into it. I'll be sure to check out that LP, also. :)
