Not what I expected it to be! OK game but it's not my cup of tea

First two levels: "I'm attacking the darkness"

i love this game! action that keeps you on your toes and allows you to build as you gain more experience through the levels, it's fun exciting and wish there was more of it. The only hick up i have with it is the controls tend to stick a bit, i'm not sure if that's supposed to be a status ailment if it is i applaud you for it because it was my fault for not reading the help when i was fully capable lol. however if that bug can fixed i would highly appriciate it other than that, you get 5 stars from me, Good Work!

The leaderboard isn't loading. Would have been a 4 star game if it had. Really good for a LD game.

This is a really fun and amazing concept! Really loving this! :D

There's so many possibilities on how you can upgrade your character and prioritize other abilities, like you could for example completely ignore the night vision upgrade and invest more into damage and fire rate, all depends on your play style.

I also like the look of it and.. yeah. Would be insanely awesome if you add like more elements and wizards ( ice, fire etc.) and also more stages and monsters, in case there aren't more. This is a brilliant game ^_^
