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.

So glad you like my game, thanks!

It's not a historical fact that ninjas ever existed, and there are many different stories about where they came from and what they are. Even woman who seduces rich lords and then kill them were known as ninjas. I chose to use an ancient japanese idea of where they came from. Ninjas were not trained by the government or military, but they were poor, oppressed vilagers who trained themselves in martial arts to fight against the system. In this game, you are one of those ninjas...

i REALLY liked it i think it would be a touch better by two things 1. If the prisnors and stuff helped you once you freed them and 2. If you could pick up another weapon so you can use two weapons Itd be pretty cool if you could. Ya know. Your a great author. I think you might be a new favorite

Awesome, thanks!
Yeah it would be so cool if you could have companions fighting with you every now and then. I've never done that before and might attempt it in a future game...

Really Good

I thought it was really good and fun but a few problems
- running was tedious, tapping the arrow key twice became annoying and was often hard to do, i think it would be useful if you could run in a different way
- It became boring after a while, it was just a bit repetitive, i think you could change this by introducing more weapons to the game such as different swords and shields.
- each character should have a special ability or at least something to differentiate it from all the other characters.

on the plus side
- It was a really fun game and animation was really cool
- there were lots of things you could buy
- It was just generally great fun

so overall 8/10 4/5 really well done
best feature: animation
worst feature: repetitive

Thanks for the review and glad you like my game :)
As you play the game you'll come across more weapons as well as many different kinds of enemies and bosses....

I personally prefer the double-tap way of running, because it's only one button you have to hold in instead of two. I don't really see how double-tapping the arrow key and just holding it in can be so tedious. Once you get the rythm right it becomes as easy as pie!

The unlockable characters (skins) were a bonus and I didn't even plan on making that possible, but I wanted to cram as much into the game as I could. The ugly truth is I just didn't have time to make each character have their own moves etc...

I liked the Castle Crasher esque theme but it just seems too slow and generic. But still a worthy effort and I would like to see an improved version.

SeethingSwarm responds:

Maybe you should put the quality down to "low" from the pause menu to make it run a bit faster on your computer. Would have been nice if you could have told me what you wanted to be improved...
