C/V/B/N/M/,/ESC: hotkeys for Char, Skill, Quest, Inventory, Map and Menu.

We haven't put a full version on Newgrounds only because there is a 10MB size limitation for flash uploading on Newgrounds, not for other reasons. Sorry guys.

We are using MochiGames API because we want our players be able to save and load the game on any computer. As flash can only perform local saving. This is a technical issue.

MochiCoins is an optional choice for those who lack time to play this game and want to level up quicker. Without paying a cent you can enjoy the game a lot. We developers have to earn our livings by making games.

Thanks to all of you, Nice NG players!

RPG themed flash. Graphics are similar to a Zelda vibe. Gameplay has been severely injured since MochiGames went down. You cannot save which is one of the main parts of a RPG. The constant message to play the full game on another website is annoying.

Not playable, because saving doesn't work.

Nice hack-n-slash RPG, but some systems make me miserable. Every couple of levels I hit a wall where enemies get too tanky and too strong and also ridiculously faster than you, and the only option I have then is to grind. While enemies getting more HP and attack power is a natural RPG progression, them being too fast for your character to react - and you can't really improve the control over your character, but you totally can make it worse by picking a wrong skill. When I've reached the stage with centaurs who zip around the screen and hit like a truck and aggro from outside the screen space, well then I called quits. And I do have a suspicion that the game was balanced like that to make it monetizable.
Also plenty of glitches, like SP regen not working at all and some quests softlocking. Also it is very akward to constantly switch between keyboard and mouse - you play the actual game using your keyboard, but you operate the menus with mouse only

Square Enix been real quiet since this dropped

I got arrogant and died to a slime because I thought my attack speed was enough. Lesson? Don't skimp on healing potions.
