This is so fun! The chase aspect really makes you sweat. Excellent graphics and audio and the controls are solid. This is a very impressive game!

Wow, definitely one of the best games, woah! Graphics are amazing - even the game-over-screen is damn perfect!

Really like the idea, feel, mood and love the subtle yet awesome audio.

There is only one thing that I would really change about it, though: the difficulty is too easy. When you have all the upgrades, you can survive endlessly - it's only a matter of when you (after a long while, though!) get bored of it.

(subtle tip: if you could escape the upgrade-menu with any other key than escape, like a right-handed button or space - that would be great)

But really, fantastic game!

The graphics are increds, but the hourglass placement doesn't seem to scale with your shop abilities so often I got hourglasses that were impossible to reach.

Really nice game! At first I thought money was just for score, was delighted to find the little shopkeeper (vending machine?)

The knight's animation was relatively rough, but every other sprite was entirely excellent. Never cared for Endless Run games, but I enjoyed the experience. Thanks for putting this together!

Spritework is really nice, although the sword should reach out a little farther to give better feedback on the hitbox. Wish the game was a little "faster" overall in the sense that the game could feel speedier. All the hitboxes seem a little too big, it makes judging whether some items need a single jump or a double jump a little hard. Like the idea of an endless runner with a little more skill. Good job!

spritework was just beautiful. Very difficult for me? I dont know why, but I liked it a lot!

Very well made! The mechanics were pretty slick, too -- once I got the hand of stabbing and jumping, and found out a good upgrade scheme, I was able to go through the game pretty easily, up until I bought all the upgrades and stockpiled about 500 coins haha! This could be expanded to become a pretty slick and addicting mobile game! Great job! :D

The spritework in this game is very very good. I found the vending machine/shopkeeper to be really weird in its design and found that the game became really trivial really quick so that I could live forever essentially ( I quit very soon after this point) but the game was fun to play overall. Great job!

The graphics are great, and I really like having an upgrade system.

Also, being chased by the Grim Reaper might be one of the best endless runner themes I've ever seen.

Awesome work here :)

Amazing graphics and quite fun, but I felt like I was doing pretty badly a lot of the time but wasn't being punished for it. Very charming game though and a nice entry all-round.

Aug 30, 2013 @ 4:01pm

Really liked this! It's a simple idea, but there's enough going on to keep me involved. Beautiful art, by the way! A great package!

the concept and execution is very well done; the graphics, sound, constant running and buying things along the way really makes this feel like a little journey -- you've managed to make it fit the theme and also made all the different components of the game fit well together. good work!

The graphics are really well done. The game play and feel is very nostalgic, reminds me a bit of Moonstone for the Amiga, a solid contribution to the comp, nice work guys.

Aug 31, 2013 @ 7:03pm

Very fun! Awesome music, fantastic pixelart, very good animation. Top marks for this!

Brilliant, one of my favourite games I've tried so far, the music and graphics were awesome and the overall gameplay was gripping and intense, well done :D

I was going to give this a bad review...but then I realized you could double jump. I died a good many times before I figured that one out.
As others have said the graphics are excellent. I have the feeling I heard the music before but none the less it's suitable. The games execution is up to par too.
The only real complaint I can give is that it's hard to go wrong with an endless runner. I feel this one is too safe. While it was made in a short time I think you should have tried to add an element that differentiated it from the large amount of endless runners out there. The ten second hour glasses and attack button aren't enough to make it stand out.
Still, good work.

Amazing :)
