A little late but I uploaded a review video to youtube and your game is a part of it! Check it out here:

I couldn't get this game to work. I used a controller, but all I could do was move. On the keyboard, all I could do was move and jump. I feel like the game would be a lot more accessible if you mapped attacks to the keyboard, as well. There was also no health bar, and no indication of the dragon actually hurting me until I was suddenly dead. Though, I loved the character, dragon, and environment art, as well as the animations.


P.S. you should mark your game as Windows playable in your game settings so it's easier for people to find and download!


That was nice, short, and sweet.   I see where this was going.  Not a whole lot of content but it looked very nice and I got to murder a sweet, unsuspecting dragoness so that's awesome!

Good work!


Very good visuals but I didn't get any audio... Is there something wrong with my PC or does the game have no audio?


Don't worry, it's not your PC, the game doesn't have any kind of sound design.


I see... That's a shame but understandable. Only a couple of weeks to make a game is often not enough for audio. Well done anyway!


I do not own a Joypad, can I play using just a keyboard or mouse? I seem to only be able to run and jump with the keyboard. However, I do like the look of the game, the pixel art and animation is nice! Well done! :)


Keyboard isn't fully supported in this version. I'm working on it right now, and I'll probably publish it in a few day when I'm finished as a new game (I intend to redo and complete a lot of things for this game in the next month).


I liked the control scheme and the animations are really cool. I'd like some feedback if I was actually doing any damage or not and it seemed like I could just walk up and attack the dragon without any harm coming to myself at all. Also any sound would go a long way.

Good job, still really liked the animations and the controls are pretty neat!


Thanks a lot for your compliments, even more as it was my first time doing sprites . 

The lake of visual returns and of sounds is due to a lake of time, but they will be presents in the next version of the game, i'm currentlty  working on it. 


Posted a wrong thing ?


Yep, sorry. but the right file should now be online.


Is the .gif intentional? 


No, it wasn't. The proper executable should now be online if you want.
