The art style really works, the controls are tight, and it IS difficult but never unfair. I had fun :)
All over the kingdom the Lich King is feared
His power and evil is total
Many have tried to destroy him
Many have failed
Z (or C or N) to attack, X (or V or M) to jump, arrow keys to move
Update: I've uploaded the full & final version of the game (which no longer spawns the player on top of enemies from the get-go). Made for CGA-jam June 2017.
