Those spiders in the first level are kicking my butt! lol. I found it difficult to kill them because the monk used random attacks and I never knew if he was going to punch or kick. I'm also bad with the keyboard functions though to be honest -___-  I think if the monk moved faster, it would be helpful as well defining an attack pattern or identifying which kind of attack the monk will use instead of a random one. The spider comes from above and the fist is not so effective, I thought versus the kick that may come out and knock the spider away from landing on me. [I suggest having a couple key inputs and assigning the different attacks those keys) I will keep playing in the meantime to see how far I can get. I did not reach a check point so I have some training to do as the guardian. I really enjoyed the presentation of the story the most, the cut scene intro and the dialogue! The graphics and music tie together nicely as cohesive elements. I look forward to getting further if I can get past the first level. 


Hey! I found that issue as a game dev but I got used to it and kinda forgot.

This is why player feedback is very important!

Thank you very much for playing and for the suggestions!

I said I would be following this monk. lol, I look forward to changes if any! :)

After playing your game to which the platform is engaging and the graphics look great. However, here are a few suggestions that may help your game. The first suggestion is to add variety to fighting of the game play by adding weapons like polearm, staves, fist weapon and one-handed swords, or weapons that are based on elements like earth, wind, air and fire that release a different energy ball or actual elements. Next suggestion is adding a wall jump for retracing within high area. The last suggestion of adding point system so that it will increase extra challenge of replay value to the game. I hope these suggestions will help your game.      

Thanks for playing and thank you for your suggestions - they sound really good!

The game has a point system though, but you have to finish it so that your highscore is saved.

No problem and thanks.

Good game dev but dud the checkpoints are really helpful , i hope you enjoy my gameplay 

Thanks for playing and for your feedback :D
