In this challenging 2D action platformer, the goal is to increase a sword's power by completing quests for the Smith, the Chemist and the Mage. There are many powers to explore, and some of them combine together to create new hidden abilities. You can only increase your weapon a set amount of times before putting it to the test, so choose your upgrades wisely!

yeah just had a chance to test it and its so encouraging to finally see a game where u cant indeed switch direction midjump making it way too easy to avoid some attacks, started on hard and 2nd mission already kicked my *** once before i learned to 1) use map to find the thing i needed was right next to me and 2) to block some attack without facesmashing ^^ hoping it continues sort of this but even harder... gotta remember the name of ninedotsstudio now ^^ you delivered what i thought u would

Glad you enjoy facing challenges and conquering them ;-) On our side, drawing attention away from DIablo 3 is our "hardcore difficulty" right now, glad we succeeded with you!

Brand is superb! I've just managed to tear myself away after 7 hours straight! You buggers!! LOL
Fantastic game, very tough at first, but once you learn how to deal with the mobs, it becomes merely hard ;-)

Well done guys, excellent game that I'll be recommending far and wide!

Graphics look great to me. And the magic sword effects look just awesome. Bit worried though that hitting enemies won't have enough "oomph" if you get me. Something that makes it seem like you really did damage to them.

It is true that by not staggering monsters when we hit them, we lose some of the oomph factor, but it was a design decision. We did not want our attacks to interupt enemies to make planning and timing more important. Try out the demo and see for yourself if you like the game :)

Thanks! And you can choose between normal (which is still hard) and Hard (which is very hard) :-P
