Nice perfect little game. Runs smoothly, funny, well animated, nice drawings, good background music and nice voice acting. Got all the medals and aced some records. Thank you for Spanthera for it is good !

I played it when you launched it and I just stumbled upon it again, so here goes saying, that this an amazing artwork quite unusual with this kind of games on Newgrounds! I had a fun time playing. It's not too hard a game, yet a fair and fun challenge. Your level design says "Hey, I'd like you to play and try out a bit until you're happy to have solved it!", rather than "Yolo, fucker, break ya fingers while trying this shitty bugged beta game!"
Thanks + MORE!!

Really a good game. Seriously thanks for creating the game and i tell you you are a good creator!

Thank you very much for these kind words, and I am glad you enjoyed playing Spanthera.

Great game !!
Finish with all stars, thanks to the creator !!

Great Game

At first I thought it was going to be too vanilla gameplay, but the decaying walls, shields, switches, and sigils added nice elements of diversity. I especially like the time-based score system on top of the 1-3 stars. My first play through (replaying each level until I was satisfied), my total score is 140619.

I'm especially proud of my score on Level 27 with 4954 points and 2 spears thrown (first one activates top switch and then headshots bottom lizard).

Also, nice references to 300 and The Lion King.

But the larger philosophical question is, what if the lizards are good and fighting for their freedom while the lions are an evil domineering race? Hmmm
