Heart of Gold is a game about survival and evening the odds. The rich just get richer, and the poor get poorer. Not if you can help it! Navigate from the woods, into the town, and finally through the king’s castle to steal back the gold taken by the king and return it to the peasants. Use your world-famous archery skills to combat the king’s guards.

You can't do any damage to enemy's. But when you hit them they stop moving for a bit. Being unable to kill any enemy's and only slow them down could be interesting, but it doesn't really work in such a large map.

Loved this fun little game. Clever title too.

Too bad that no support for arrow keys is added; not everybody has a QWERTY keyboard and wants to switch keyboards layout for playing a game.

Fair point you make. The feedback is appreciated. This is something that we certainly can implement in a future update. We primarily didn't include it because I personally felt that it would be uncomfortable for the player to do arrow controls while controlling the mouse for the shooting. Thanks for playing!

tried to kill the monsters but the damage would always say zero. other than that neat game.
