It's a great game, I just started yesterday. I have not gotten very far but... I have noticed a bug. When I find a new weapon, even if it is worse the the one I am carrying the old one is lost, gone, disapeared, never to be seen again. This gets realy frustrating; especialy when I just bought a brand new Pirate Sabre, and never get to use it.
I do think, however, that it is very hard. Like when find any potions shops, or when my weapon breaks after four uses. Maybe if the weapon had a set amount of uses, and the higher defense the enemy has the faster it breaks. Maybe 30-50 uses would be good, so I can actualy get my moneys worth. Making the game less random would realy make it a bit more fun, but not so much that it becomes predictable. Otherwise, it's a great game that has a lot of potencial (sp). I hope to see new and improved versions in the coming months.
Anyways, thars me two cents, and ye 'aint gettin' no more!
EDIT! I have also found that at the level that I am at, when I face a mercenary Dwarf, I am garenteed to lose. I realy realy think that you should be able to drink potions in a battle. If you could, then when it refreshes the page I would have drunk the potion, and if the monster's attack was over mine, it did damage. But if mine was over his, nothing would happen because I just drank a potion. Yeah.
