IMPORTANT: Make sure CAPS LOCK is not on while playing this game, otherwise some buttons won't work. It's a flaw in the code, sorry about that...

The Rise of a KING takes a turn to the role playing genre, but still retains the action from its predecessor. If you havent played The Rise of a Knight, then there is a "Story so Far" section where you can watch a slideshow of what happened in the first game.

Explore the world in and around Stormguard Castle as you start off on your first day as a Knight. Times are getting dark with the current king and many others behaving strangely while more and more dangerous creatures appear, causing trouble all over the kingdom. You seem to be the only one to see the obvious corruption, and its up to you to dissolve this matter...

EDIT: For some reason the link to play The Rise of a Knight doesnt work in the game. I have no idea why, because it works on If you want to play the first installment of this 2-part series, then just go to my profile here on Newgrounds, or choose The Rise of a Knight from the drop-down menu on this page.

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.

Well thanks.
I suppose some people dont realise that the game's speed (in this case the knight's running speed) depends greatly on their computer. Nice that you liked the game and thanks for the review and comments.

30 minutes! Wow, that's quite a long time for a flash game. I'm impressed with how long you played this in one sitting! In my opinion, flash games shouldnt be too long or too hard. I'm sure many would disagree with me, but I feel that flash games are meant to be much more casual than hardcore pc and console games. This game is probably the deepest game I've ever made, even deeper and more complex than I first intended it to be. It was supposed to be a simple hack 'n slash like its predecessor with a few extra things, but then it just grew and grew... I think I might have overdone it a bit with the conversations, but I'm pretty pleased with the amount of weapons, shields, spells and armor in the game. This was the first time I've ever tried a shop system in a game, so yeah, I'm pretty pleased, but I'll keep in mind that people always want MORE!

Thanks for the review, and I'm glad you liked it :)

Haven't I seen this here before? O.o

Anyway, I rated it a 5/5 because it's one of the better games I've seen these past 2 months ;D.

I haven't gotten very far yet, but I'll be back :0

Good, but one major bug REALLY pushed it down.

The very first enemies, the assassins, they can hit faster then you can run, or attack. If I was hit one time, it was basically over. I couldn't run, I couldn't defend, I couldn't attack, nothing. Please fix this bug, and then I'll give you a higher score.

SeethingSwarm responds:

They dont really attack faster than you. If you are too slow to push them back before they get to you, then you can always use magic to get rid of them, or just use your shield. This game is not really very tactical, but maybe a bit more than you think. And you gotta give the bad guys a chance to win every now and then. You really think that this "bug" brings my game down to only a 4? Well thanks for the review anyway, I'll definitely keep your comments in consideration for my next project. I've never been too good with doing combat...
