Knight Run 2

Share Collapse

Author Comments

Knight Run is a fast-paced fighting game where your goal is to get as far as possible without dying. Along the way, you can fight enemies to gain experience and levels which allows you to learn skills to better fight off enemies.

This is only my second game, and it's just a completely reprogrammed version of the first one/first game I've made. (Next will be a completely different game, not Knight Run 3.)

I really appreciate any comments and constructive criticism you can give me. :)

=======How to Play=======

Arrow Keys -> Move
Spacebar -> Jump

X -> Block

i think you should add cooler armor on the person and the sword and shield needs to be cooler bro

Hmm what a great game you have made and are you gonna add more knight enemies so I can fight it. I want you to have a shop with different knight armor and helmets and swords

Stealth2800 responds:

Thanks! I'm still working on adding more content. :)

Jeez, could you make it so that the enemies get tougher ever 100 meters? I got to 10,517 and I only died because I let myself because I got tired of playing, I also submitted my score and found out that I became 1st on the scoreboards of all time, which was greatly amusing, but anyways its a great game but you should add more upgrades like damage and maybe add some magic into the game, to vary it up in skills required you should add a difficulty system of "noob, easy, normal, hard, extreme, nightmarish, Godlike and finally Holy Hellfire! thank you for making this game and I hope to see more great and enjoyable work from you in the future.

I'm currently working on increasing spawn rates for enemies along with a few more tweaks to make the game slightly more difficult. It is really easy at the moment, I do agree. Difficulty levels are a possibility but most likely won't come out anytime in the near future. Thanks for the review!

Every time I made an attempt to attack an enemy, I would dash forward and past the enemy, and have a short delay on my next attack. The next attack, I would try to turn around and again dash past the enemy and miss him. This made it difficult to kill enemies.

Stealth2800 responds:

I'll look into fixing this. ;) Thanks for the review!

Well, this game is good and all but it needs work, there are few enemies, leveling up didn't help much, very few types of enemies, you should also make a level tree, and you should be able to get money or items from dead enemies. It's still a good game though, just needs improvements.

Stealth2800 responds:

Yep, thanks for the review!
