I Love the sound assets! The game is fun to play as well.

Very, very effective game. Brings Prince of Persia childhood memories to my mind.

Pretty cool game.
I know I should not complain about this but the default controls are really strange. Pressing the shift key too often will bring up a windows dialog for me which makes it impossible to play.

I liked that fact that you can block attacks with the space key but that was not explained in the readme.

Loads of fun! Took me six or seven tries but I beat it (once with no special ability and once with. The AI is really cool!

Very cool graphics style, stickmen, simple but nice! Yes, that was fun! But please create more levels :) and maybe change the default key settings!

The game reminded me of XKCD :)
A a bit frantic, but nice.
It took a while to get used to the controls.

The change in framerate felt really great. But the controls felt a bit weird.

very fun!, I would change the "shift" control. on windows keeps showing a question dialog of "sicky keys". The special move is awesome!

The sfx are pretty good, and also is the gameplay. Even though the choice of controls is pretty odd. Good job

You've built up a decent engine, well done! The special skill however lagged alot on my end, it was nice and unexpected feature thought.

It was very satisfying to land a jump sword strike on a foe. Very nice feel to the game with the animations and sound.

The main bgm didn't work for me, but I played with Icarus (from the Deus Ex: Human Revolution soundtrack) and it was very intense.

Excellent work!

Thanks everyone for the compliments and suggestions! This time I think I made something worth extending :)
@broepi You bet more levels are being made!
@psychonull You're right! I changed the default controls!

As soon as I finish some updates I'm making I'll upload a new version!

This was very "2013 jam game trying to be a "2005 Flash game trying to be an Amiga fighting game"".

Great game! My only complaint is that you need to use mouse to navigate the menu... Awesome SFX, too.

@Husky download link is fine. Must've been a temporary server down. Thanks!

Wah, so addicting, I just spent half an hour playing this :)
Not very best use of theme but still I had loads of fun wit this.
And man last two guys are strong. Failed to kill them -_-

Woh that was real fun.
I found the falling physic a bit freeze (annoying to fall in the void without having a chance to jump back) but the attack phases are pretty efficient.
I really appreciated the difficulty increasing.
I got some lag when destroying the statues with the spell but the effect was still nice.
SFX are perfect.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
