swinging around is really fun. The spiders are nicely done, although i found out that you can easily beat any enemy by spamming left and right click quickly. Maybe you can implement some stun resistant enemies, or put more than one in one spot to avoid this. The animations on the character and the skeletons are still a bit stiff, it's not easy to tell when the skeletons are stunned, and when you do stun an enemy, the white effect over their head lasts waaay too long, it stays there long after the enemy dies. The level design is really well made, the ambients aren't linear but you don't get lost, and you don't have to look for enemies for ages. Overall really cool, just needs polish :)
