Well put together game overall, nice music, great pixel art, decent gameplay. Although I have a few problems. First off, you need to make better instructions to the game, like how do you earn the points for upgrades? Second, coins do almost nothing, the concept of items is weak. One use items that cost that much is a waste. I ended up selling every item I picked up, just to get the gold achievements. Altogether it's a good game, but it needs some tweaking for sure.

tempalabs responds:

Thanks for the comment! You can get coin for upgrade just by clearing a new level!

It needs medal resubmission code. I played through three different difficulties of stage 1 and already missed out on a medal, and the game does not resubmit; there is no way I'm going to go through this game, missing out on difficult (or time-consuming) medals only to be forced to replay the game again if I want to get them. I know it is not your fault, something is wonky with the API I suppose, but the easiest way around this problem is to add in medal resubmission code.

As for the game itself, it is enjoyable, although I do have problems with it. First off, it is not fair to forcing the player to attack allies if they are close enough to a character when an enemy is attacked. I am okay with the game's inclusion of friendly damage, as it makes the game more strategy-based, but if multiple targets surround a character, he should only attack the hostile ones. Also, I do not understand some of the upgrades; when attempting to upgrade Dash's sword, I noticed that the first option is durability. The description given is "Make it last longer in battle." To my knowledge, the sword does not disappear if the battle goes on for too long, so why would durability ever need to be upgraded?

The transition is extremely annoying; it is fine for the initial menu screens, but to use it twice every time any screen changes is just excessive and irritating. Similarly, the icons at the bottom of the map screen (status, upgrades, etc.) should not have to pop back onto the screen every time it is loaded. Doing it when the game is first started would be fine, but not every time it loads.

I do, however, like the fact that each stage has multiple difficulties, and the stage is differently populated depending on the difficulty; if the stage is played on Normal, there might be two wolves, but on Hard, there could be two wolves and a goblin. This might require a change in strategy, which is a nice deviation from the approach many games use in which enemies are simply given some extra levels to make them more difficult to beat.

Overall, not a bad game, although I did not get to spend too much time with it. I will be returning to the game as I hope to develop the skill tree further and see the other characters.

Thanks for kind comment and feedback. I have implemented various fix that should improve game speed.
You can also find new button on the Title screen, 'Reset Achievement'. With this, you can clear the in-game achievement, and try to trigger the achievement again if it fails to connect to Newgrounds Medal the first time.
