Under rating threshold (show) 4 types of shards, 4 pieces of equipped gear, feather and potions leaves 4 slots open for quest items. No room for anything else. This is a serious issue. Equipped items shouldn't take up inventory spots, neither should the spell components.

Under rating threshold (show) My only complaint is with the way that trees block the view. How much health does a monster have? Is there another monster attacking me from behind? Is my pet blocked by an item. Perhaps you could make the trees partially transparent when you pass behind.

Under rating threshold (show) The biggest issue I can see is the inventory slots. I agree with the others but I don't see them as huge concerns. The inventory slots become a huge problem when a piece of treasure drops that you don't have room for, so you will need to drop something in order to pick it up. While doing so however, your pet gets attacked by a monster that has just popped, and you can't get there to help him because you can't walk across items that you haven't picked up. I've had a number of pets die this way and it's an absolutely ridiculous flaw. One that would be solved - as many have suggested - by having more inventory slots, or having equipped items not count towards your inventory. The other issues I've seen mentioned are annoying, but are more things that would make the game easier, not necessarily inherent problems. Very enjoyable if that issue were fixed.

Under rating threshold (show) There are some serious issues in this game 1.Absence of auto save does not increase difficulty, its just annoying 2.Pets are way underpowered and die too fast 3.carrying four pieces of armor, four kinds of shards, food, and/or pet food live too little space 4.pets take to long to hatch (an hour for something at level 4 is just not worth it) 5.frost monsters abuse "freeze" 6.poison and antidote fail and should be removed because of their ineffectiveness 7.monster drop rate of quest items is too low if you agree please press "+" so that the creator sees this and improves the game

Under rating threshold (show) 1) It's easy to hit the Hints and Tips button when scrambling to use an Attack. 2) The lack of autosave makes caring for pets important, but it also makes it tempting to ragequit when you have a run of XP farming and your critter falls prey to the following: 3)TWICE I've lost critters to an invisible opponent. Once a snake and once a scorpion. I tried to attack where my creature was attacking, but I couldn't see the foe nor swing at it. I could see the little red square in the map in the upper right corner. This might be a feature, but it seems like a weird one. My proposed fix for (2) is that if a creature dies, the player must carry the creature back to town if he/she wants to save the creature. The creature could take up a bunch of inventory slots.

Under rating threshold (show) -(1)- click on a creep not near you -(2)- hit the special attack you want to use [you will move and use that attack on the targeted enemy] -(3)- after your special hits but before your character makes an auto-attack, click on the enemy you're fighting [this will perform the special attack on the creep a second time as soon as you click] -(notes)- this can save you tons of HP and time, especially if you have a pet that can freeze and have the ice sword (5th generator onward)

Under rating threshold (show) Very fun game, I just have one suggestion. Instead of your pet being gone forever when or if it dies, that you would be able to pick it up, (would take up 1 inventory space) be able to bring it back to the pet shelter and pay a moderately high price to revive it depending on its level. + if you agree.

Under rating threshold (show) Some might call this cheating, but I accidentally auto-leveled the other day. I was in the last map of the jungle where the generator is and I was kind of low on health. I saw a corner north-east of me, moved over there and then killed a wild scorpion so that his drop would block all attackers from reaching me as I recovered HP. I went away from my computer for a couple hours, and when I had come back, I realized I had gained 2 levels! There were also quite a few drops on my location. I waited a bit a saw that my corner was a spawning wild scorpions. Curious as to whether this worked or not, I came back to that spot after beating the level and left it on while I went to sleep. When I woke up this morning, I was level 21! I used a feather to get a away because it was lagging really bad. I'm sure people will be mad that I got this far without spending as much time as they did, but I had already spent hours grinding in this game and I have no regrets!

Under rating threshold (show) Overall I think the game has got potential to be very good. However, I do agree with other commenters that the controls need to be improved greatly. For instance, creating a hot key system for Attacks/Abilities/Inventory would be great. Non of this clicking back and for to get to stuff during battles. Also, while I get the convention that connecting land pieces jut out arrows would help greatly, as would objects becoming translucent when the character or an object is behind them. Last comment is on the leveling, so far its ok, though I can see how it might be frustrating at higher levels if the level rate continues at this pace. I'll post again when I'm through. Keep up the good work!

Under rating threshold (show) I agree with the major complaints - a lot of the main elements of the game are just badly designed. It's obvious a lot of work and craft went into the game, but the inventory, save system, pet death system, battle/movement system and isometric view all make the game far more frustrating to play than it should be.

Under rating threshold (show) Why don't pets regenerate? Just because you can kill them doesn't mean they're inferior in their healing capabilities or anything like that. And besides, it's kind of annoying to have to use wild berries every time they get severely injured. (and yes, I know about the stay command, and use it too. It's really useful, but snakes, scorpions, and other enemies can still run after it and attack when you aren't there, so you have to be careful with where you tell it to stay.)

Under rating threshold (show) - There is no indication where you can "walk off" the area you're in. Took me a long time to even notice that there's more of Castaway Beach than just the first bit populated by bugs. - Unrealistic amount of grinding and walking required. Have to kill a gazillion beetles for 20 beetle shells for quest #3 (or #4, depending on the order you go about things). And unless you keep a close eye on your health (which you can't cheaply replenish) you'll also want to walk back to town every so often to save (which takes bloody AGES, by the way) because the thing doesn't autosave. Uh, no, I've got more interesting things to do with my time. So... This is so close to an interesting and entertaining game, but such a complete failure on a few crucial points.

Under rating threshold (show) Easy way to keep the first pet alive to game completion, keep it in the Pet Shelter, if you even wanna keep it. You can try to keep it alive if you use it... but that can be a problem when monsters turn invisible, target your pet and kill it when you can't even see the monster, much less attack it. I've lost many pets and have died numerous times from getting attacked by invisible , untargetable monsters. I've also tried going to Castaway Beach to heal over time, instead of resting at the Traveller's Den, only to get hit by an invisible Venom Snake that poisons and kills me. Very annoying. Not likely to be fixed, though. Liqwidgames clearly abandoned Castaway on Kong after they uploaded it.
