A downloadable game for Windows


The tyrannical king crab has stolen the good king's magical scepter, and began using his vile powers to terrorize the nation!  Swish, A local swashbuckler has had enough of the evil king's mischief, and he's taken matters into his own hands!



Directional: WASD, or Arrows
Jump: Spacebar
Attack: U or X
Block: I or C
Menu/Pause: Esc
Confirm: Enter



Hold down the block button to protect yourself from any melee and projectile attacks from the front.  Will not work against explosions and overhead attacks.

Blocking just before an enemy's melee attack opens you up for performing a powerful counterattack (indicated by your character flashing), where you lunge forward and will deal twice as much damage to bosses.

Certain projectiles can be swatted away by your melee attack.  A few projectiles, such as the Star Fish's shuriken, may even be sent right back to their thrower; this is done by hitting the projectile with the tip of your sword.
