How to Play: Hit other players with your sword

  • Clanging swords with result in a stun (0.25 seconds), putting your sword in its default position
  • An opponents shield acts as a barrier, that will not stun you, but will stop the sword

Sword Speed Matters

  • Players begin with 10 Health points
  • Damage of a swing depends on sword momentum (can be seen in Bottom Left)
  • A swing with maximum momentum can kill an opponent in one hit
  • Weaker swings will take several hits to take out an opponent

Stamina Matters - Manage It!

  • Stamina is exerted by the force you swing your sword
  • The less stamina you have, the slower you can swing (less damage)
  • This helps prevent attack spamming, for more skilled gameplay
  • If you have less than 35 stamina, you become exhausted
  • When exhausted, you regain stamina more slowly, and cannot jump
  • Sprinting also stops you from regaining stamina
