not even subtle...

(1 edit)

Took me 31 minutes good game 9 / 10 would give it 10 / 10 if it had like another boss or new content but it really is a good game good jop

Loved this mechanic of this game, totally didn't have anything to do with shoving a massive sword into a satisfied dragon...

Ye uuuuhhh...10 outta 10 and simply one of the best games i have ever played.

I did it in fifteen minutes second try i wish I could upload image but I didn't take a screenshot :c

im stuck

it took me 67 minutes... I hated every second of it but it's a good game 

Nice game, but i ran into a bug. At the forth time the blade got stuck in a corner and I couldn't move either with A and D nor the arrows.

r to reset

took me 26 and a half mins XD amazing

This game is really good I love it

Really fun and interesting game. Keep up the great work! 

i got softlocked at the 4th leagth lol

it was quite a struggle having such a LARGE sword, but finishing was so satisfying, 10/10 would cum again

lmao 

Such a fun game! still can't get past the very last part.

I tried this game. Made a video and I liked it but... that last part got me a bit to angry. I admit that.

new time baby

i beat in 40 minutes :)

i´m feel Happy

I loved the unusual way of the character to get through obstacles, I was used to pressing the space bar to jump but this was surprising. I also absolutely love the visuals and no way that took 72 hours to make! Great game! 

Hilarious project and cute art style! Are there any recommendations on lvl 3?
