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.



Good game

It's a hard game, but once you get the hang of it, it's really fun and challenging.
Didn't have any trouble with defeating the goblins and other creatures, and stopped at the cave level to write this review.
The only points of criticism I want to adress are the fact that you have to walk everywhere, and although the scenery changes whilst walking, and it adds atmosphere to the game, these parts are simply too long.
I didn't use the ''heavy hit'' because it was too slow to do any real good. If you could make such an attack go just as fast as the other, only draining the special bar, that would be a lot better. The special attack was great for coping with those clusters of goblins with arrows/spears/maces and what not.
Perhaps an upgrade system would be nice as well, with better attacks, and more types of weaponry at your disposal (think Diablo)

The game is nicely drawn, it has a good storyline, and the music did not get annoying. I really enjoyed this.
Hope to see more like this from you in the future.

Thanks a lot! Im so glad you liked it. A sequel is underway and flaws will be improved upon as well as a lot of new and exciting things will be included... think Diablo :)

this is great!

Definately going on my favorates!! I've only seen such good stuff like Music and Background Movements in Old PS1 games... This is great! If you ever concider a remake, could you maybe have the Narration with a Voice? if you need one, I'll do it. :D

SeethingSwarm responds:

Thanks a lot!
Awesome that it goes into you favourites, I am flattered :)
The reason why I didnt use a voice is that audio is one of the things that really makes a game's filesize get huge. Sorry.


I cannot believe how underrated this game is. It's really smooth-playing, has great art, and a good story. I CANNOT wait for the sequel. Great job.
