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

The game was kind of repetative and limited. It might benifit by adding some armor amd weapon upgrades, or maybe some magical abilities. It was a cute game, but it didnt keep my attention. It was alright bro. Looking forward to the next.

Seems pretty cool, The "Youdied/Gameover" sign in the end lags quite a bit when coming up. Be much better if upgrades were available. Good Work though.

In reality its fun but nothing to special.

That 'lag' is actually slow motion, and it's intentional. Thanks though!

Great animation and graphics yet again :D
I did come across one little glitch though. After replaying after a game-over, the archers don't seem to shoot any arrows.
