INSTRUCTIONS: Click the "GRIND" button to, well, grind! Once you hit the required level on the sign, click the "KILL" button to defeat the boss!

YOU ARE THE FORMIDABLE KNIGHT KNOWN AS SIR PROTAG. COMING UPON A CASTLE STOCKED WITH EVIL MONSTERS, YOU KNOW BUT ONE PATH: A BLOODY ONE, CARVED THROUGH YOUR ENEMIES. But first? Some light grinding on your training dummy (by clicking endlessly) - don't want to get hurt now, do we?

This was a short (short? *evil chuckle*) game I made for F*ck This Jam. It's essentially a game that highlights how ridiculously stupid grinding can get in some RPGs. Massive props to whoever finishes the game manually.

NOTE: IF YOU REALLY DON'T WANT TO CLICK A MILLION TIMES (fair enough) SIMPLY HIT LEFT & X ON YOUR KEYBOARD IN THE FOURTH BATTLE ONWARDS TO RECEIVE A HUGE LEVEL BOOST.

Thanks go to the following freesound.org peeps: ERH, DJ Chronos and FreqMan.

Enjoy!

I like the idea that grinding can tedious and stupid in some RPGs. With better graphics it would be much better.



good



This is actually a new genre of game. Cookie Clicker and Clicker Heroes are insanely popular. It's stupid and I hate it.


People find this review helpful!

I still don't know how to kill a person. I click everywhere on the screen but nothing happened. I was able to hit him once but after that I couldn't kill anything. I rated it 3 for the real point of the game and that cheat in level 4.



fun little game, but i found an odd bug. beat the game (get the 1m clicks) watch the end credits, and start a new game. you keep your 1m clicks, so killing the bosses is easy. if you use the cheat listed above, the "kill" button does not go away (even though you are 1 click short) if you then click the "kill" button, you launch your attack, and fail. even if you click to the right number, you do not get another chance to kill the boss. i know, really odd bug. i am not expecting this to be fixed, but just wanted to bring it up for future games. :) loved the music. good game all around.

Aha, both worthy of note.

The first bug is probably because when the game completes I've forgotten to reset the variable that tracks your level, so it carries on into the next game.

The second one I'll have to investigate.

Thank you for bringing this to my attention, mitthar! :).
