Author Comments

After countless millenia of imprisonment in a long forgotten tomb, the lord of the undead is finally freed by careless grave robbers. The world is about to change forever....

Armed with a flail and an arsenal of spells and combat moves your ultimate goal is to collect ancient artifacts which are needed to open a portal to the realm of the dead.
These artifacts are guarded by the kings of Gonia. There are 8 kings each belonging to a different race of enemies.

Movement : Arrow Keys or W,A,D

Attack: Space or U

Block: Shift or I ( Enemies attacking you from behind won't be blocked )

Spells: Numberkeys or Numpad. Hold 'down' to cast the fireball spell less steep or down, if jumping.

CombatMoves: First you will need to learn the combat move after leveling up. The key combination
needed is written in the description of the combat move.
Charge: Forward + Forward + Attack
Jump: Forward + Down + Attack use the left/right keys to steer in flight
Teleport: Forward + Forward + Block
Stunattack: Forward + Backward + Attack
Slambomb: Down + Down + Attack use the left/right keys to steer in flight
Slambomb also works when jumping.

IMPORTANT: You can make combos by rapidly using combat moves. Press the key combination for the next combat move BEFORE the first one is finished. This combat move is then queued. You will receive damage boni to your combat moves and extra experience if you are able to create longer combos.

If you think the game is TOO EASY try the HARD and INSANE mode. You will also receive much more experience,more attribute and skill points!


Many people seem to disapprove the idea of an item shop. This is a bit unfair. The ad revenues are rapidly decreasing while the effort to make a good game is rapidly increasing. As developpers we are dependant on other income sources to make a living. One possibility would be to ask for donations, in our case however we added a set of special items as a sign of gratification for the donator. The items aren't necessary to experience the game to the full, since you get special items after each king and the game is easy enough to beat without any extra items. In fact the game wasn't conceived to have virtual goods, it was the only way for us to (hopefully) cover the development costs (half a year) since we had no luck in finding a sponsorship.

So we hope that you don't downrate the game because of the shop, since it's just another way of accepting donations which as we think is more desirable for the players. Besides you can get heyzap coins for FREE by just filling out some SURVEYS.

fixed some minor bugs and added some new background graphics. Also the normal mode is more difficult.

Noted Criticism:
- More different types of AI/Enemies ( Catapults, wizzards and so on)
- More Combatmoves
- Finesse & Magic to have more influence
- Spells with less recharge time/ to be an alternative to the melee fighting
- NPCs & quests
- Harder levels

Thanks for the constructive criticism. We will consider everything if there should be a sequel!



Apart from that..... seen it all before


An Excellent Game To Pass You Time With. And I Really Loved The Way You Made This Game, But Only One Question: "How Many Levels In Total?" Cause I Am Considering, Making A Video Walkthrough For This One ;)

And Don't Listen To All The Negative Ones, This Is An Awesome Game :D



It's a good game, but it gets so boring and repetitive after a while.
I suggest make every level or few levels different from the others.

rpg my ear

This is a hack and slash game! I quit after four or five levels, because it was the same background and the same monsters for those five levels, there is no powerups and even after have leveled up 4 times I didn't feel like I was getting stronger and the fireball spell was weak even at level four...

The 'pay for real' shop is an ok feature, but only if there is an in-game alternative and here you only get one item per level, and it does not feel like it is makeing that much of a difference...

In conclusion... This is one extra game we could do without

Its unique

This game compiles a sort of RTS with alot of RPG background. I gave $2.00 for some coins and i mean thats like 2,238 coins and even though the prices rise they last for about 12-26 items. And even then the bonuses and stats make up.
But as others have said it dose get repetitive.
