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

I only could play a bit (I'll try to find more time soon!). One remark, is it normal that, when entering the first dark room, there is no "eye" to locate the player? If I go north in the dark room, I enter the second dark room, and the eyes are present. If I manage to go back to the first dark room, the eyes are still not there. This made me get lost in the first dark room. A bug... or a feature I didn't understand?

It's normal, the "eyes" are not present in the first rooms near the exit.

Mmmh, ok, but what is the reason for that?

I didn't want the player to directly encounter the monster at the start of the adventure. First see the painting with the moving eyes and after the deadly eyes in dark (in my mind it's the same monster everywhere).
I thought it was a good introduction to the dangers of the castle.

Damn, got killed again by the "wind". It's really treacherous, because turning again the torch and moving will provoke another "wind", and so on. So the best thing is to leave the room in the dark.
I'll have another go later :).

The torch on wall are not impacted by "the wind", if you have enough torches in inventory to put on wall of course.

Hi,
i have just finished version 1.2, here the release note :
- Jumps use stamina more than walking (prevent not losing life just moving by long jump).
- Add consumation level to each individual torch in inventory.
- Prevent reloading torch consumation by putting torch on wall and taking it back.

I will send this (final!!!) version to bitmapsoft.uk to make the physical version of Throne Legacy.
