This game is not as awesome as it looks. The graphics are appealing, but that's as far as it goes. Here's a list of things that annoy me:
-Jump is up. Why? Because you travel vertically when you jump, of course!
-Ladders are climbed by jumping. It makes sense with the default controls, up to jump, but I changed them. Because pressing up to jump is stupid.
-Everything is overcomplicated. If you want to pick stuff up, you hold the pick up key, click on the item, then it sort of floats in front of your character. From there, you open your inventory and drag the item in.
-The sound effect for an enemy warrior dying is the Wilhelm Scream. Every single time.
-The sound effect for picking up a large coin (which, mercifully, is automatic) is the same exact sound used for picking up a coin in Super Mario World.
-Chickens drop nothing. Cows drop nothing. Sharks drop steak.
-Don't bother trying to stay on a ladder while swordfighting, because the ladder breaks when you hit it with your sword a few times.
-It seems buggy. In the "Save the princess" mode, I went into a castle and every enemy randomly exploded into blood and body parts for no reason whatsoever.
Of course, lots of people say this game is good. Maybe I'm just nitpicking. But I really, really, wanted to like this game. And I don't.
