IF YOU GIVE THIS A LOW RATING: I REALLY would appreciate it if you gave me the reason why you rated it like you did so I can possibly improve the game in that aspect.
=========================
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 only my second game, and it's just a completely reprogrammed version of the first one/first game I've made. (Next will be a completely different game, not Knight Run 3.)

I really appreciate any comments and constructive criticism you can give me. :)

=======How to Play=======
(Also available on the menu in-game.)
Arrow Keys -> Move
Spacebar -> Jump
Z -> Attack
X -> Block
C -> Skills Menu/Pause game
Double tap right/left -> Sprint
Attack while sprinting -> Sprint attack
Down arrow key while in air -> Jump attack

It's really good but, can't you add some more enemies? Perhaps some giants or some witches, maybe...?
And it would awesome to be able to customise the hero, or at least make the hero change outfit when you level up?
Other than that, it was an engaging game that I had fun playing. After a while it gained in hardness, and it had the necessary challenges that make a good fighting game. The character movements were smooth and continuous. :)

I felt like leveling up had little to no effect which made leveling up useless. Still fun.

Huge improvement from the first knight run, however this game still has it's flaws. Instead of being too hard it's now too easy! I literally went to the bottom of the screen and put something on the right arrow key and got over 9000m (no pun intended... ok it was). Here are some things to keep it balanced. Either have regain health from killing enemys OR picking up items, I would just make it so you have a chance to get a health up item when you kill an enemy. Also the further you go the more damage enemys should take and or receive. I hope you give these suggestions a thought or two. But still nice work.

I'm glad someone finally pointed that out. ;P I completely agree. I'll work on balancing the game out a little bit. I think one of the main differences is that enemies attack is much lower than what it was in the first game. Thanks for the review!
