Customer Reviews


First off, the promise of an upgrade has been promised for about a year or more, but has not been comensed. DO NOT BUY until the upgrade arived because it is NOT worth it.

The following claims are a load of BS.
"Upgradeable weapons and armor". Well you can upgrade them... Twice
"Diverse yet unique enemies".
There is two types of enemies, but wearing three or maybe four differnt clothes. Diverse? No. Unique? Certaintly not.
"Strategic gameplay"
There are two attack buttons: kick and slash. Kick stuns them, but only works if your literally right on top of them. At this point, the archers are shooting you and the enemy you've "Stunned" is probably conscious by now. Shield is pointless, because then the enemies spawn BEHIND you and there's nothing you can do. In addition, executing ANY of these commands blocks moving, so you can't move and attack at the same time, which pretty much screws you over considering the fact that it's usually five enemies on screen, and they spawn from behind you too.
And of course, "Update soon". Well it better be pretty good, because it's taken over a year. I doubt if there's ever gonna be one. A real scam.

great game BUT the controls need fix

its good its beautiful its entertaining but the reason people say its to hard is because the freaking controls dont work !! i mean i dont know why during the updates the develepor has made, he hasnt fix the controls, the shield button is incredibly unresponsive and these is speacially frustrating cause the amount of archers these game has and im suprised they unresponsive seeing how big the buttons are, so develepor instead of making new games fix the ones that gave you fame

everything is perfect except unresponsive controls that why i gave it a 4 stars out of 5 $0.99 no brainer


its to hard you need to make a difficulty selection (easy normal hard) and more upgrades and the archers are to tough and fix the sheild button this game would b fun if u would do what we say and ill keep this app till july and if there aint any updates im gonna delete it so hurry up and make an update i played it like 15 and my high score is only 79 and make a story mode and fight bosses and make the game longer and the sheild dont work but who cares they just come up behind you and kill you the archers need to b weaker and less of them and a slower rate of fire and ill keep this app till july and if there aint any updates im gonna delete it so hurry up and make an update
