I couldn't believe how much content was in this game for only one month of development! Mattinj really knocked it out of the park with this one. First of all, the production value is of the same quality as Overlord. He managed to make a menu system, multiple power ups and some cool gimmicks. The main gimmick involves shrinking the player to get through tight gaps. I thought this was really cool and it added a great dynamic to the game. You get more powerful as you go through the game, starting with only a single jump and no weapon. Most of the combat is melee which is a cool change from the normal fangame gun. You can also get money and buy stuff at Peach's shop but I really only got enough money across my playthrough to buy one thing (The 10 damage sword of course). You can probably grind out money to buy more things but I wasn't in the mood to do that. There are also hidden treasure chests with money in them scattered across the game. The game was actually harder than I expected, because some bosses took me a while to beat. The final boss in particular was pretty difficult although after I learned the attacks it was bearable. (The hitbox on the boss is really odd for the first phase though.) The hardest platforming segments were the ones with the small kid. Most of the enemies in this game do a lot of damage to you so you can only afford to get hit once or twice. This was a problem in some small-kid segments because they can be quite long with a lot of tricky stuff in them. One thing I didn't like was the spider webs because you have to tap the up arrow in order to climb on them. I think he should make it that you automatically latch on to them if you go on top of one with the up arrow held. One thing I REALLY liked about this game is the way he made you use different power ups. The bomb is pretty simple but there are some interesting (and annoying) puzzles with it. I think the most fun I had in this game was bouncing on enemies with the pogo sword power up. It's extremely satisfying. The running mechanic is also really cool but I don't think the game tells you how to activate it so I had to hold random keys on my keyboard until I found it. (It's the C key, by the way.) Another really great moment in this game is getting the "Big f***ing sword" in the last area and being able to kill those annoying enemies in one slash. Very satisfying. I could say a lot more about what I loved in this game but anyone reading this review who hasn't played it yet (assuming it has been released to the public) should definitely play it. It's such a well made game and the fact that Mattin put this together in one month is honestly baffling.

A stunning presentation for only a 1 month time frame for creation. The classic Mattin formula of an adventure game with exploration elements, wrapped in top tier production value, with a difficulty level that makes it accessible to a wide audience.

The game features a variety of power-ups, some of which are weapons that not only give the player options for fighting enemies, but are used to open up new paths for exploration. On top of this, there is an inventory system, secrets, and a shop. This game brings more to the table with a 30 day production window than many larger projects do that get lost into dev limbo for ages.

This game is another must-play for both players and especially game-makers as a lesson on what these games could be if the makers stop trying to make something that's really hard instead of something really fun.

Fairly short and inconsequential, but it has a certain charm to it and makes for a nice beginner adventure game, especially since it makes things pretty forgiving overall by giving the player HP. The bosses all kinda suck tbh, but they're not hard enough for it to matter so whatever.

Also, the download link listed on DelFruit is broken (and the name is actually incorrect too - it's "in shining armor," not "of shining armor"), so I don't know if this was officially released yet or not... I found a download from elsewhere.

Perfect example of a very fun game which is also not hard. Wish it was longer
