Kenxeus found a critical bug that prevented him from beating the assassin boss. The problem seemed to be related to my encryption software that's making certain codes unusable.

Things taken from "Hero's Tale"?

Quite a fun game, however I noticed that some of the music and sprites are similar to the music and sprites of the unfamous game "Hero's Tale" which is being sold. Care to explain?

I looked up hero's tales and it seems to be made using RPG Maker VX, a software which I used to make the game too, so that would explain the similarities.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

could be a good game

i'm pretty much tired of those animelooking things(but its just me so i'll be not taking down the score coz of this), i thought i was playing with a woman ._. ,
still the game is quite nice, the way he moves is really alward and lame, we can't "fell" it ,so its really alkward
anywway i know using motion tweet turn animating easy ,but kmon draw more!! and make nicer animation
also the phisics suck
and you guys should add cool affect and make normal moves more simple make it like zero's (from megaman) sword combo.

thats it USE LESS motion tweets and draw more, and draw better totally okay to simple use others as ref...also add foreground it makes the game looks more beatyful
