Note for players getting stuck early on: if you're stuck between enemies, hit space rapidly to advance time/restart. Sorry about that! Run down the long hallway ASAP to get out of that first segment. I'll patch it after the jam period ends.
If the game is performing poorly, check the hardware acceleration setting for your browser-- the game will work better in Chrome with this enabled.

Hi all! Game is kinda hard, and missing some features! Here are some ways to make it easier.


I keep getting killed by the first enemies I see!

Before you get the sword, you can't fight. Just run away as soon as possible!


I'm stuck between 2 enemies and can't get out!

If you get stuck without a sword, unfortunately the only way out is death (sorry!). Hit spacebar repeatedly to 'wait' until enemies kill you.


I keep getting lost!

I'm sorry there's no minimap! I've made a little guide map if needed:


I keep dying to the big dangerous guy!

If you haven't gotten the 'dodge' and 'forgiveness' powers, definitely don't take this fight on. If you have, see below.


What's "one thing left to do"? What do I do after I get all my powers?

Go fight the big one! I know you can do it!!!


Combat is just too difficult.

If combat's too hard and you still want to go through the game, enable debug mode by hitting TILDE (`) eleven times. You'll hear a small noise.

After that, when in combat, rapidly left click (or press X) while holding TILDE (`) to 'never miss' your attacks basically.

It's been so long since I've been this satisfied beating a final boss. I only wish there was more.

Cool game, but so short :(

Best web game i've ever played! The art is sick, the music is incredible, the bosses made my hearth beated like lighting,... Simple game but it made me so excided in any single fight (especialy the final boss). VERY nice game! Good job Hydezeke!

YES, i destroyed main evil!

omg man, this is a nice game, i already kill the big one, and i want moreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee <3 THANKS for this beautifull creation.

Loved the game, everything fits really well... yes it is hard and might need some adjustment on difficulty settings (the harder the longer the clicking/life of the enemy). But the combat mechanics spot on imho.

Fascinating visual style, a real work of art. Combat is quite interesting and I got smoked by that guy that made the eye red.

Really cool style, and some great ideas!

Cool :)

(also is the music online somewhere to listen to?)

Wonderful.

Love the combat, gameplat and audio! Great job guys! Great job.

I like the visuals rising above the maze, to guide the player. And while the graphic style is nice and the displacement of the polygons really adds graphical "variety", I found it to be bit noisy. Wel and then I got stuck in a corner, blocked by an enemy and could not do anything besides turning. I have to try that again...

Wow... great game.

Good stuff, love the combat. Get hard very quickly tho.

Wow, that combat is really satisfying. It's so simple, but the longer chains can be surprisingly hard. Love the visuals too. Just really great all around!

Thanks! Would you believe us if we told you it started life as a stealth game?

(+3)

I would. That's what I thought it was gonna be when the first enemy stalks you, and all the text talking about enemies chasing you. Then, you quickly get a sword, and I was like... "Oh, I guess it's not a stealth game." Haha. It would be fun either way -- But the combat is definitely satisfying for sure.
