Intense element Pixel power what I really liked about this is the pixel art and graphics that comes forward I like the energy of this, This game reminds me of castlevania or ghosts and goblins the game style is fun but have to say it's that pixel visual that is nice some nice pixel design surrounding the game itself and that's a plus in itself so nice game indeed


the first time i finished the game it have not registered so i had to beat it a second time lol
apart from that great game,ennemies can kill you too quick
pro tip:you can't be hurt while you're in the air

Ok! The game is enough easy, all that u need to do is just a run, run and hit; run and hit and this method help u to come to 10 wave. But i think this game need a more balance, because at 10 wave u can die for 1 sec because of bats, very much bats and its bad :]

a hint for those who stuck
heavy attack can be cancelled by light attack, if you press Z+X you can do 2 continuously heavy attack, so make use of the following combo will reduce the game difficulty a lot

X+ (Z+X, press together) = double heavy attack, can kill bat at once
X+Z+X = double heavy + 1 light, kill skull and goblin
X+Z+X+(Z+X), kill mushroom

in late waves, jump on platform and keep moving from side to side until all bats come out and stick together, kill them with X+(Z+X); jump down and use X+Z to hit goblin then go backward, repeat this until you kill all goblin and the rest is easy.

P.S. DO NOT cancel your heavy attack before damage occur

Grats on beating the game :)

I love the character sprites and visuals SO MUCH! Oh, not to mention how GREAT the animations are! Light attack feels like a light attack and heavy feels like it really packs some punch. I'm pretty fond of this games' style.
