NOTICE: Anyone is free to make videos of my games. Sharing video game experiences with others is really nice. It gives me some exposure while the people who make the videos get something back in return. I fully support the monetisation of any video you make containing footage from my games. As long as you don’t claim to be the creator of my games, it’s all good! Throwing my name, SeethingSwarm, as the creator into the description or into the video itself is also always appreciated.

Vintage Gameplay

Well, let me first say that I did enjoy the game. I'm pretty old school and I enjoy a good sidescroller every now and again. I'll give you props for having a pretty good storyline in there and I'll admit that I'm curious to see what you'll bring on the sequel.

Alot of the previous reviewers have mentioned that the gameplay was pretty easy and I'll agree with them to a point. About the only 'difficult' level I encountered was the cave level with all the spiders. (I was waiting for Samuel L. to show up and get the Mother F'n Spiders out of the Mother F'n cave. ;-) ) I digress though. You guys have to remember, this is a sidescroller we're talking about. Nothing fancy. You all probably don't complain about Mega Man jumping over incoming shots, or Mario able to jump everything to death in the old NES games. Why condemn him for a 'simplistic' combat system in this game?

About the only thing I could complain about is the faces of the king and the princess. If she were my princess, then I'll conveniently forget about my oath of fealty and go rescue a looker. ;-) However, this is a minor complaint in the grand scheme of things.

The musical score fit the game, so more props to the composer. Otherwise, I'll be giving this game a 9 and will look forward to the sequel.

Difficult, but in a good way.

Felkon's Dungeon is pretty difficult, but this is a good game! Maybe you could add a bonus that will only increase a stat (speed, strength, health) by only a very small bit after you complete a mission. Other than that, it is a pretty good game! Keep up the good work!

SeethingSwarm responds:

Thank you. A lot of people have been saying that they would have liked more moves and some kind of upgrading system. I'll keep that in mind for future games. When I make an rpg I'll put a proper stat system into the game, but The Rise of a Knight was just meant to be pure action and adventure, no stats and numbers. And Im glad you found it difficult and challenging because a lot of people complained that this game is way too easy.
