I love the simple, yet fun and enjoyable style of this game. I can tell it was made in 2 weeks, although that wasn't an understatement of its design.

I like that this game gives you little instruction, yet is fairly easy to figure out on your own. I like that this game is somewhat difficult and requires you to build somewhat of a strategy to defeat your opponents (similar to a super Mario boss or something of the sort).

What I don't like is how fast the difficulty accelerates itself and how often you have to save if you don't want to be frustrated as hell at the fact that you just got shot 4 times in a row by a tiny golem that seemingly glitches taking only 1 or 2 steps before turning and shooting directly at you again.

Something very important in these style games is redundancy, if a golem is intended to take 5 steps and shoot, its ok if its a range between 4-6 steps, but don't allow it to take 1 step and fire repeatedly out of nowhere when you've already designed a tested method of killing them. Use the next enemy to do that. Otherwise we just get annoyed and frustrated and are tempted to close out and never play the game again.

Kudos, great job, and I hope to make a game of this caliber shortly. I understand how everything was made so it shouldn't be too difficult. Thanks and I'll be sure to play all the way through this for a good sense of what works (and what doesn't).

I have only played a few minutes of this game, and I already know this is a high quality, and well built game. Well done! I can see the effort put into this game, and I hope to see what other games you can make!
