Great game!  I like the limitation of having to pick up your arrows.  It made it feel like every shot counted.


Having to recover your arrows gives it a different twist from other game with the same concept. I liked this a lot. 

Shooting with Z makes it a bit hard, you could maybe use an easier to reach key, like E.


Have you tried N and M for attacking/rolling?  I tend to use the arrow keys a lot, but I set those controls up as well for W-A-S-D players.


Very nice game! i liked all the different types of enemies and their movements and the gameplay was very fun!


Sweet game, liked it a lot! 

Very deep game while keeping the limitation in mind


Thank you!  ^_^

Very cool (: The bats are pretty difficult to predict, as they should be. The music is groovy, man, and Satan was fun. Nice job!


Thanks a bunch!  You can also thank Will for the music! ;)
