**TOM, thanks a lot for the frontpage feature! much appreciated!**

This is a action-survival-platformer with a challenging task: cut off as many heads as you can before being eaten.

Controls are explained ingame, but here they are again - just to make sure...

move: arrow keys
attack: a
shield: s
flash bomb: d

toggle music: m
toggle sounds: n
toggle quality: q

Filled with some rewarding medals and a public scoreboard there can only be one champion player.
Do you have the skills to be that person?

- Controls changed; enter small doors with arrow key DOWN

- Alright, from now on the SPECIAL MODE needs to be entered only ONCE per game. Oh, also the heads regrow faster! Thanks to everbody who contributed ideas for improvement!

- WASD option included! You can now switch the controls when listening to the master, or during your fight via the symbol at the bottom of the screen! (WASD, JKL)

- Medals now also visible ingame. This is because the game will be available on those websites as well:

I will no longer be giving hints via PMs, sorry. So, inspired by ArkantosWar's comment, here's something if you need help:
"Beyond the point of no return lies the true spirit of a warrior, let the fire of a master guide you. But watch out! If you have not returned from the dead with the knowledge of the dark walls, you will probably despair of finding the answer. Good luck."

I year has past and the only thing I didn't got was 20x air combo and the hidden life potion. Can't seem to accomplish it because of the lag.

about one year has passed and i'm happy people still like this game :) thanks!

the hidden life potion is definitely possible to get and the lag shouldn't actually be a problem for that medal... keep looking! :)
as for the 20x air combo;
you can perform 20 hits after you're sliced 20 heads. to unlock the medal you do NOT need to hit the hydra - just keep holding down the attack-button as you fall/jump from high up.

if you don't mind i'd be happy to recieve a PM after you've tried it - i'm curious whether there's an actual bug or a just simple misunderstanding!

thanks again!

This game is really laggy.

Normally, i would give this a game a rating, but since i can't seem to find special mode ANYWHERE (In other words, i think it's a trick, and thus not implanted in the game), i can just say worst mind-screwing game ever.

OctoFlash responds:

so let me get that straight; you couldn't figure out how to activate the special mode and thus you decided it's impossible to do so. for this reason you simply ignored all the other factors of the game (graphics, animation, action, scripting, fluency, entertainment ...) and went for zero score? you do understand that you didn't 'give no rating' but rather the lowest possible one? doesn't sound very reasonable to me.
anyway, i don't care about the rating but rather about the expression of your ignorance. if you're still interested in finding out whether i tried to trick you or not, just drop me a PM and i'll tell you all the secrets you want to know.
