I played the game but gave up after a short time ... (see my yt chain).
The main flaws: Totally illogical plan. Impossible to make a plan of the castle to find one's way there, whereas we should fall back on a place already seen, we end up in the end elsewhere ... In short, we need a real plan.
The torch that goes out by itself, that we relight with the lighter and that goes out again immediately causing us to lose since the energy decreases immediately (but I read that you corrected that).
Apart from these main flaws, I really liked the game which really makes you want to play it seriously once it is finished.

I don't agree, I managed to draw one. Ok, sometimes I had to make some strange curves, but it works quite fine. Just don't use a small page :).

Hi @GOB,
and thank for making a video on Throne Legacy.

I played the game but gave up after a short time ... (see my yt chain).
The main flaws: Totally illogical plan. Impossible to make a plan of the castle to find one's way there, whereas we should fall back on a place already seen, we end up in the end elsewhere ... In short, we need a real plan.
I have made a plan on paper before coding it and apart a few special cases such stairs and secret passages, the plan is logical.

Here the last version of the map (spoiler inside)
 
Apart from these main flaws, I really liked the game which really makes you want to play it seriously once it is finished.
Great :D

Here the current patch, the game is being testing :
  • In game translation (not menu or intro for now)
  • Restoration of original Woman painting, being replaced by Prince of persia for cpcretrodev gesture
  • Remove lighter usage limit
  • Speed up player movement
  • Now life is lost by movement and not by time (prevent quick lost life in dark room because game run too fast)
  • Game map slightly changed, Shop is nearer and room of the cup is attached to the castle.
  • Golden key cannot open doors anymore
  • Change text to better understanding why torch extinguishes
  • Old torches can be taken from wall (but caution there are nearly burnout)
  • Replace text in "redefine key" menu Sel(ection) by Inv(entory) for more clarity
  • In inventory you can now use either "Fire" or "Inv" key to use object
