Not bad. Though the instructions don't actually mention any controls. How to move around was initially unclear (I assumed WSAD). Conventional wisdom generally implies touching monsters harms the player-character, not the monster, so I avoided touching them and kept trying to find the "attack" button. I'm able to continue attacking monsters after they're defeated, so it was unclear to me that I was just wasting time stabbing a corpse. Lastly, the game often stops recognizing my keyhits like [spacebar] or [R] when I try to return to the game or exit the credits menu, so I have to refresh the page.

One of the inspirations was Gauntlet, where melee attacks occur when you move into things, and attacking inert objects had intent but ran out of time, and thanks for report on keys stopping working, I think I identified issue!
