I finished it without using the shield. I am really bad with it :) .I really like animations and graphisms.

The graphics are amazing! Great work! Works very well at this res. Could do with more variation in combat and gameplay.

This one hocked me from the first screenshot. To be hones, the gameplay isn't mine, but the first person pixel / pseudo 3d look is really great. 

One thing that would be great, is some kind of visual indicator if you are in hit range. Something like a outline around the enemies. I attacked a few time before I was in range and it is hard to tell if your near enough.

Played and enjoyed it. Nice one.

This is incredibly creative! One of my favorite games on the website if I'm being honest

So good - So immersive! Love the old-school dungeon crawler vibes. Lovely animations, great job :)

Submitted(+1)

Graphics and animations are top notch!  I was looking forward to playing this based on tweets I had seen.  I was slightly disappointed with the controls, but I think it can easily be fixed by increasing the sword and shield speed by a good amount (twice or three times as fast).

Good job!

i like it!!

Art is so nice and I love the dungeon crawley atmosphere!  I think it would've helped me if the animations were a little clearer but also I'm bad haha. Dug the music and the sounds, and the art is sooo good-looking, well done! I'd appreciate if you would check out my entry as well!

Nice art, Eye of the Beholder and such vibes, well done.

Fyi: it doesn't work in Chrome for some reason. When you press "x" to start, nothing happens.

Developer

Thank you! When the mouse loses focus out of the game window (clicked or moved outside) for some reason this happens. Must be due to Love2D web export.

The art is astounding! I love it. Many have mentioned that better telegraphing would help. But it's still fun.

Submitted(+1)

I love the visuals of this game! Like others have said, the block mechanic isn't super helpful because enemies don't telegraph their attacks soon enough before the blocking takes effect. Once I learned that you can back up it made the combat much easier. I love it and would love to see an expanded version of this!

Awesome little game, reminded me of Lands or Lore (even the intro!!). I really love the fact that you took the time to build a backstory with intro screens and extra graphics. Awesome graphics by the way, great moody music as well. Awesome job!

Absolutely gorgeous game. The gameplay concept was fun, but ultimately the shield felt useless, as stepping back was faster and had no cooldown.

Submitted(+1)

Loved it. Shield button felt unresponsive at times (event in fullscreen with WASD), but its still an excellent game.

Submitted(+1)

Too hard for me, but not necessarily unfair--enemies do telegraph their attacks, I coundn't seem to ever get it to block at the right time. I really like the art and music, though. Nice job!

Developer(+2)

Thank you, best thing to do is run back a little to cancel their attack then it becomes fairly easy.

Oh, oops.. I didn't even think to run backwards. It's even there in the tutorial.. my bad. 😐

Submitted(+1)

Great job on the pixel art and music! The intro/tutorial screens was a nice little touch, adds more depth to the story/lore. I found the dodging/blocking mechanic interesting, takes some skill to time it but definitely adds more of a challenge. Great job overall!

Developer

Thank you so much!

Looks fantastic, and I like the simplicity of it. Only complaint is the controls feel a little bit clunky -- I kept trying to raise my shield after an attack, but it wouldn't activate if I hit it too soon after the attack animation. Getting the timing right was difficult.

Developer(+1)

That's true, blocking and attacking are not immediate, and everything works by the count of the frames. Needs time to getting used to controls. I wanted to make it a bit more simpler later but the deadline was already passed :D

Submitted(+1)

Wow ! That is a tough game ! I like the simple mechanics but I wish the character would respond faster to key commands. Graphics ans sound are top notch and really set the mood. You should definitely keep working on it !

Developer

Thank you! I hope to add some more to it after the jam ratings are over :0)

Submitted(+1)

Great stuff. Strong art and sound and I love that the controls were so simple.  Monsters clearly telegraph their attacks and the hit sound is satisfying. A great mini dungeon crawler.

Developer

Thank you so much!
