Very well made game! I included it in a compilation video series of all of the I Want To Create Contest games, if you'd like to take a look! :)

Hello! Nice music and art :)

Couldn't find enough time to go up and use the upgrade system, but the multiple characters was a neat touch and the combat was actually really fun and accessible. The clickteam logo at the start didn't disappear until the game started the first time, so i couldn't read the tutorial, and some of the faster characters could have used a little more health, but maybe i just wasn't very good at the game :) Overall a pretty cool game, well done.

@Dave C Yes the game has Xbox 360 controller support, and it automatically mutes the player one keyboard input, so as a solution I will have a notification pop up when a gamepad is connected. Thanks for the feedback! P.S The keyboard is riddled with cheats and experiments if anyone wants to try them out...

One thing to note is if you have a joypad plugged in, the arrow keys won't work, you have to use the joypad! That took me a while to figure out.. quite difficult to hit the little enemies with the slow sword attack. I'd try to make that a bit more forgiving.. if you worked on this more it could be really cool.

Really fun game, love the graphics! Really well polished and thought the upgrading system was really cool.

Thanks for the feedback guys! Yeah I should have made it that the teleport/screen flash effect only happens when near the mysterious force, as it makes more sense and doesnt result in being teleported into the right of left spawn.

Fun game. I ran into a few glitches but overall it was a good experience.

I got stuck a few times but it's a fun game and I love the pixel graphics.
