Hah, the old man gets his fifteen minutes of fame. Now we only need the gibberish 'hints' he is famous for.
Ricocheting arrows off your sword is a quite fun interaction, although a bit overpowered. Slashing in the direction of the mouse cursor could feel better, since the camera doesn't keep the guy in the middle of the screen like a twin stick shooter. I liked it, the art and animations were also pretty nice.
