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.

Did you ever finish the story?

SeethingSwarm responds:

Yes I did! I made a sequel to the game in 2008 called "The Rise Of A KING". The sequel is a lot more expansive with RPG elements and an open world to explore. You can easily find it by going to my user page and viewing all of my games, but here's a link to it:

Anyway, thanks for the nice score! It's great to know that people are still playing these older games of mine :)

Its pretty good but it doesnt quite have enough variety as far as things like weapons go.

Thanks for the review!
Yup, only one sword. I agree that upgrades would have made this game much more fun, but I was pressured by time and filesize. Glad you liked!


Rated 4 / 5 stars

not bad

it was pretty good all around. I think you probrably could do a little better in the art area, but I think the plot was pretty good. The music was also pretty good. I didn't find any gliches in the game, so over all it was pretty good. I did like the suspense on the cliffhanger too and I hope you continue the series.

Thanks a lot!
I dont know if I'll be able to make the graphics much better because of my skills and I also have to think of how the game will run on the internet. More and better graphics can cause it to lag very much. Im so glad you liked the storyline, and Im currently working on a sequel...


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Too many Lord of the Rings references...

The game play was very simple, but annoying. It would've been much better with voices... (Considering the voice acting was good.)

SeethingSwarm responds:

Yeah, voice-acting would be better, but it also cranks up the filesize tremendously. This is just a flash game, not Oblivion. Too many LOTR references? Where? Cuz there's goblins? Oh yeah, maybe the big Spider Queen is one...

The gameplay is simple yes, it is meant to be just a hack 'n slash game, nothing more, sorry you found it annoying.
