Knight Run 2

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. :)

+ Characters layer properly with each other.
+ Lowered enemy spawn rates.
+ Enemies walk to the right after the player dies.
+ Added jump sound effect.
X Scrolling background no longer flashes white randomly.


Far too simple and easy, as well as boring and repetitve.

Thanks for telling me what to do to improve it. I really appreciate it.

okej so the game look good and the game sounds good i guess but i have one big problem whit the combat. I can not block or attack when moving. Why not? i think this game would be more enjoyable
if i could block or attack while moving. So i took a lot of damage from the spear men as i call them. so if you had already fixed that then i would have given you a 4/5 but you have not so far so yeah. Still a good game but not great keep developing this game and it will turn into a great game if you do a good job that is... So yeah stuff and things and i am just going to shut up now.

Thanks! I already added the ability to move while blocking and may add walking during attacking. We'll see. I also added another attack and I have plans to add even more. Keep an eye out for updates if you're interested in seeing more. :)

Fun, but not completely wowed.

I'll be adding more to the combat mechanics of the game which will include more skills, attacks, and even combos. Keep an eye out if you're interested in seeing that.

Stealth2800 responds:

Thanks! And possibly. :)

The game isn't really bad, but in my opinion, it isn't really too great. Add some weapon/armor upgrades, as well with maybe some kind of checkpoint system or even a shop. Skills would also be nice to see. This game has potential to be a phenomenal game, but to me it is only missing those few things as before mentioned. Keep up the good work and I can't wait to see some more from you.

Thanks for the review! I'm working on adding more attacks, skills, and maybe even a coin+shop system.
