I did like the game, but the UI could use some streamlining. For example, why do I have to hit space to show my health bar? It really should be on by default, or activate automatically when first taking damage, hiding it only confuses new players - they might not know it exists at all, much less which keybinding toggles it. Sure it seems obvious to us veterans who discovered the health bar long ago, but we need to make sure the game is also fun for more casual players who can't invest the time to figure these things out.
I just can't beat that game. I like how my character looks, a big king with a huge sword. But in the first fight, when the intro is over, I pretty much die right away.
Yeah you're supposed to die right away, but did you remember to activate your "true power" after your apparent defeat? It's a common mistake new kings make, the tutorial doesn't really prepare you for stage 2.
