Spears 'n' Spades is an action platformer where you can change the weapon you attack with, each one different from the other. Explore over 8 unique stages, each with new Enemies, Mechanics, Bosses and Secrets. However, you can only get hit twice before you die.

The game has many secrets and shortcuts you can find to make your life easier. You can also find alternative paths in the levels, however, some are more dangerous than the more obvious path.

You play as the knight Isabella Rosenschwarz, who must rescue her husband from King Nick, a demonic overlord who has gathered an army of zombies and demons to stop her journey to the church he has occupied, as well as corrupt the land he now rules.

Art & Design by me.

I remember playing leathers other game on gamejolt.com I don't know if I would pay to play a game kinda similar to it.

I must say, for a £2 game, you really chew than you can bite. already being a fan of Ice's artwork, I enjoy playing a classic NES game within this art style. although it's limited to it's weapons and enemies, it doesn't take away the joy and difficulty.

Sadly I hate to announce some bugs still within the game which I feel I should address. 1: in zone 3 (The bonezone) there's an odd chance you'd die and restart ALL the way at the back of the level, rather annoying if you're doing a completionist (Which I am). 2: With a secret achievement (Involving bosses) I have managed to do it but yet have not received the achievement. 3: the 2nd character is always stuck every respond.

BUT all the negativity of bugs out the way, I can happily say this is worth a try, the weapons are pretty fun to try but for those who completed the game should know there's always that one OP weapon out there. the bosses varies pretty well, from knowing the patterns and timing, although sometimes there are impossible combo's to pass.


All in all I'd give this an 7/10

Hey, thanks for all that, but can you tell me which achievement specifically isn't working for you.

The Kings of spades. (beat all phased 2 bosses without taking dmg)

We (hopefuly) fixed that and the other issues, check for the games new update

Yes, I seem to have gotten the great kings and the secret character doesn't seem to be bugging at all with each respond, frankly I hate to bear more unfortunate news but I just now completed the "Golden Choice" which I only swapped my weapon from a knife to a bomb but it's not registering sadly enough, still need to figure what that super secret achievement is though.

This is a great game. The art is great, the music is great, the bosses are great, I could go on and on about what I like about this game. The only thing I don't like about it is the lack of variety in the weapons. There's 2 normal forward projectile weapons, 2 arcing weapons, and 1 melee weapon. There might be more weapons, I'm not sure because I haven't finished the game yet, but I feel like there should be a little more weapons. Maybe there could've been a boomerang, poison dart, or spell tome, or not, I'm just spitballing. Anyway I love this game and anyone browsing for games should get this. Also it kinda reminds me of Castlevania, mostly because of the spookiness and the knife and axe and the difficulty. Again also, I like how when there was a different game element, like an enemy or object, you put it in a controlled environment so you could learn about it through experience, instead of a boring tutorial or forcing you to read the manual, and then had more challenging scenarios involving the new thing. 

Actually about the weapon variety thing, I might just think that way because I only used bomb

Hey man, I'm making a bundle and I was wondering if you would like to be a part of it?

Nah I'm good, thanks anyway

No problem! :)

Very Tiny Update: -Fixed a bug causing the game to not exist when you buy it

Loving the game so far, feels like Bone.exe on steroids. Any chance of getting the ability to change the controller button layout? It's there for keyboard controls but not for USB controllers. Just wondering if that's in the pipeline at all, again, great game and I'm already looking forward to more from you!

Sadly, We couldn't figure out how to change controls on the controllers, so I had to make the most convenient controller scheme I could think of that I'd imagine most people would have. So I apologize for the inconvenience.
