This is notbad

So this was notbad but does seem to lack some upgrades along the way to better build onto the end game the graphics are nice and the game mechanics itself are pretty good, but other then that this game was pretty fun and entertaining at that I had fun with it.

Thought this was an ok game until the boots-upgrade is removed after you've spent 75 hard earned coins on it. Need to tweak the programming so upgrades don't disappear.

The basic idea is nice, but... This game has few severe game-design problems. 1. No meta-progress. The character does not get any more powerful on the way. These 'upgrades' are rather 1-time power-ups, which does not really make the difference there as 'the next time' you can just fail at the first enemy or first spike pit. 2. No content progress. I played like 10 times, I've seen all the patterns, there are probably no anything new up ahead, no other enemies either (as character doesn't get any tougher while these ones are formidable enough because the game is skill-based). Also, no sound there on Ubuntu 18.04 64bit + Chrome.

Killing enemies feels bad. Your sword doesn't have enough range and basic enemies have too much health. I see potential but is is held back. Also, personal note, controls on just keyboard would be better. Also one time use upgrades are worthless at those prices. Please make them permanent if you make any changes.
