Player Comments

The typos and constant fourth wall breaking narration makes this hard to read. The listing of information seems kind of lazy; you could have placed some well written dialogue instead. That would give us the same information without jarring us out of the story.

There are many characters but there's hardly any character development, if any, for most of them. This is, again, mostly due to a distinct lack of dialogue. Since there are so many characters in this story lack of development just leaves them bland and unmemorable.

I can't say I particularly liked the plot. Overthrowing a tyrant as the chosen one is pretty cliche but can still work out well. Some points of the story made me laugh but my favorite were: "theyll give you a log if your the chosen one" and "Its for this reason that she was locked up in a tower ever so high, 65 feet to be exact". The first one speaks for itself but as for the second...65 feet is not high for a tower.

I expect much of the combat choices depended on our stats and could actually have involved horribly complex mechanisms for all I know. What I do know however is that "Slash and chop" hardly makes a difference to me when the other option is "Slash and slash". Even worse it's a life or death decision.

SPOILER ALERT-(I appreciate Arthurian legends as much as the next guy but it just felt tacked on. Uther does have plenty of achievements under his belt as a character of his own. That Mattias becomes king by killing the former despot is pretty far-fetched.)

I do want to end on a positive note though and I will...try anyway. I kind of liked the RPG aspect of this; walking into someone's house to take things is certainly nostalgic. It's also clear, particularly with quite a few updates, that some effort has been put into this.

Apparently there's this exploit at the part with the
Black Pearl door where you can just keep leaving then reentering and you'll keep getting 500 score each time.
*Spoilers End*

I really enjoyed this game. I had to keep restarting in order to get the axe. It was long and a bit challenging.

There were a many typos, the grammar was often poor, and some of the links were broken.
However, I had a lot of fun, and that's all that mattered. :)

So i got conclusion 2, meaning there is a conclusion 1??? And there's anyway to beat the Labyrinth of the tax office? Appreciate the game!

"Ahh well, you almost beat the game."
What? And you tell me at the very last page? Skrew this, for anyone who doesn't want to step the same fate, be sure to beware of "did he pledge to you, did the Samurai befriend you? Did you make the right decsion." Good game though. With some choices very worth pondering.
