Castles

Here are some screens of the castles that I just added. They have random size and rooms but I still need to add furniture and carpets and stuff like that. And the big boss of the castle is still missing. :D

A Small Update: Dual wielding

Currently I'm working on the multiplayer mode and hope to make a video of it soon. In the meanwhile I can just post screenshots, so here are a few. New features: Dual wielding, new sprites, improved running animations, more varied terrain coloring.

The idea of dual wielding is: each attack deals fewer damage but is very fast and allows for faster combo point buildup.
