This is a lot of fun! I really like the concept and the graphics. Boss rush is always better when you haven't already beaten the bosses. I hope to see a more polished version after you guys get some rest!

Awesome game. The graphics are beautiful. I don't really understand the story though. Funnily, I had a hard time defeating the witch and the dragon, but defeating the Dark Knight was really easy :P

Played this game to the end. It's tough, but fun.

Excellent design here, in particular I was constantly faced with Risk / Reward decisions. Amazing run animation for the hero / dark knight. Played it until I beat it, which was quite satisfying.

The game is good, but runs too slow for me. And when I press down, page scrolls. Also, first boss is toughest, second easier and the last one is easiest.

Really nice art. Dig the color palette.

Thanks for the comments everyone!

@trq
This game does run slow on older computers, but most updated browsers should have hardware accelerated canvas graphics.
It's weird that pressing down scrolls for you, I explicitly put in code that prevents this behavior. Could you possibly tell me what browser you're using as well as your computer specs?

Hi everyone, we're excited to be expanding on the story/theme and will be adding levels and more boss battles, if you enjoyed the game and would like to follow it's development look here:

And thank you I'm very very happy how the artwork turned out! I especially liked the pressure of the competition, really helped me focus. Might start setting up arbitrary 72hr deadlines to meet haha

Amazing art and animation guys. I found the difficulty to be totally reversed ! First boss gave me much frustration, second boss was just a matter of having the balls of staying in front of him and just slashing, and last one I got on the first try. I was hitting "attack" so much I skipped the end scene by mistake :(

I love boss fights !
Also, I had a pretty similar game project in mind some while ago :)

I love the graphics but I suck and couldn't defeat the first boss xD
Got a good score nonetheless from me :P

Fun game :) I like that it's not easy.

Apr 27, 2012 @ 6:55pm

Amazing art and sound and a lovely idea :)

I just saw your "Postmortem" post, caught my attention the bits about animation... the art you managed to create it's awesome, I think it's pretty unique. Needs some polishing, and touches maybe, but it's great.

Incredible art! Really well done, and the music's a perfect fit as well! Loved it, really reminiscing of Cave Story for some reason :)

It's getting stuck on loading for me at around 90%, right after it loads foreword2.png

Damn this game is hard, couldn't beat the dragon, those falling rocks were brutal.

Really beautiful, but I couldn't even beat the first boss...

Very nice visuals and animation, but could not beat first boss. In my opinion it needs more work/balancing, right now it's just frustrating.
Again, really like visual style.

Really great visuals and animation, but I am especially impressed by your boss fight design - they might seem tough but they're actually incredibly fair and reward smart play. The last boss was kind of a let down after the first two were so good though (I beat him in like 10 seconds, not sure if I somehow cheated the system). Great work!

nice job! I wish the dialogs were not simple text on the bottom.

This is way too hard for me. Reminds me of the Boss fights in Cave Story

Apr 30, 2012 @ 8:32am

Very pleasantly reminicscent of Cave story and Wonderboy. The sprites are huge and lovely, but what gripped me are the colors! I'm saving screenshots for my reference folder!! The music is amazing as well
