As the game begins, you've been ousted from your throne by the original game's hero, and you're forced to flee your own palace to seek a way to reclaim your seat of power. You will need to steal the four magic swords to make him disperse back into the darkness from whence he came, fighting and platforming all the way. As a departure from mainstream game design, Armed with Wings 2 is worth a look even if fighting games aren't necessarily your thing.

I feel sort of robbed. I mean, here I am, evil warlord tossed out on his butt, and I go through all this merciless manslaughter just to find out that the whole thing was just an exercise in futility. I mean, had I been able to bring the four blades of Eden together, what would have happened?

The jumping on this game sucks. It's not at all fluid with the other movements. If you're going to make a platformer, you can't have crappy jumping.

Other than that, it's fun.

The "Play Armed With Wings 2" link points to the first episode, it should link to http://armorgames.com/play/2819/armed-with-wings-2

Oh, also two other things:

Zoom out! The game does this at certain points, but it should be a bit farther out for the bulk of the game. Again, jumping isn't much fun when you can't see where you're going to land.

And whoever decided that making the protagonist wear slippery shoes in games is fun should be forced to wear them in real life and to jump among raised platforms.

I still don't understand why games like this MUST make you slide when you land. Jumping from platform to platform is hard enough with having to hold down the jump key, but having to land in the middle of platforms for fear of sliding off of them made me close this game to save my sanity.

On the plus side, it's a beautiful game with fantastic music.

I can't seem to get anywhere near the first boss on medium difficulty. Can someone help?

As a side comment, some of the spelling in the dialogue is terrible (thrown instead of throne?!!).

I'm afraid the link still links to the first game ^^ (unless my proxy cache is playing tricks on me)

The platforming I really didn't have an issue with. My biggest problem with the game is that the controls are just too stiff. In a lot of the platforming areas, I had to be extra careful and always use super jumps just to get to the next platform. The difficulty settings are apparently only for the baddies and don't affect anything else in the game.

For those having fun with jumping (like me), the jump occurs when you release the up key not when you press it. Not something I can get used to easily.

The game isn't working for me...

Any reasons why? The rest of the page loads, but the game is just blank white.

(Yes, my flash player and whatnot are up to date, and tried clearing my cache.)

2 things:
1) Jumping. It's alright, but a bit clunky.
2) Spike pits and death. What SHOULD happen is that you disappear in a swirl of darkmist and return to the start because you have to make leaps of faith into spike pits and die a lot. Death would otherwise be OK if it weren't for the effing spike pits.

cool music, but everything's slippery. the jumping mechanic blows.

Ugh, this game is great, but the music is all directly lifted off Zelda and Super Smash Bros. Brawl and whatnot.

Hmm, just finished the game. At least there are credits as to where the music came from. But why oh why is there a delay between when you land and when you can jump again?

Jumping sucks. Also, oftentimes, you can't see where you need to jump because the camera is too zoomed in.

This game has such a cool concept, I just wish I could play it.

So lemme get this straight...

The final boss is faster than you, can't be blocked or avoided in any way, follows you unerringly when you jump, and can arbitrarily smack you with an attack that sends you flying into certain death, and is immune to your only projectile attack?

Nice try, buddy. You're an animator in game designer's clothing. Get someone else to actually build your games for you.

Also, when my character is moving left and I press and hold the right arrow, the FIRST THING he should do is TURN AROUND, not start moonwalking backwards.

So I assume there must be some way, on the second or third stage of the Gusty wind level to

trigger the bridge so you can catch the updraft

but I don't know what it is.

I've tried running past the first trigger and hitting X just as I do, but it slows me down so I can't get to the updraft before the bridge closes.

Also, what everyone else said about the jumping, the zooming, the sliding, and the stylishness of the animation.

Matt W, if all else fails, try your projectile attack with 's' :)

In my opinion, it's a good game, apart from the spelling... The slipping was a bit irritating, but without challenge, a game is pretty... dull. I think it could have been a lot better, but it still ranks favourably with me. 7/10, basically hehe.

My only real qualm is that it was so short, and that it

had a pretty dud ending... I understand that it wasn't really an option for the 'protagonist' to win, without making the LAST game seem a bit futile (plotwise), but it was such a short ending, and kind of.. well, it was a let down basically.
Big flashy boss fight against a previous protagonist, who uses a lot of fancy footwork and hard hitting attacks; suddenly teeny tiny ending.
Whoopee.

Ah well, I suppose if I'm just going to complain I should go and make a better one. If only I had the skill ;p
So who am I to complain. Good game, just wish the

ending

was a little more satisfying :)

So, the antagonist in this game, the sequel to Armed with Wings, is the protagonist of the orginal, and vice versa? Weird. This is the first time I have encountered that situation. If anyone knows a certain game or movie that has this dilemma, please talk at once.

As for the game, nice story, nice fighting controls. Only the platforming is the speed bump in this otherwise smooth road.

For Matt W:

Pressing the S button will release a projectile. Stand on the bridge and fire a projectile at the trigger. Then continue as normal.

Thanks guys! Somehow I hadn't yet discovered the S attack.

Final boss strategy

Run past Armed With Wings to the other side of the platform.
After he finishes his combo, run toward him and punch when you pass him. If you hit him, you should slide past each other, and you can continue running to the other side while he uses his combo again.
Repeat.

Shortcut glitch

In betrayal, the second area (not counting the area with your brother and sister) If you do a high attack jump from the edge of the first floating platform of the second story, you pass through the ceiling into the warp bubble.

I never get the lightning sword, do you have to complete it on hard first or something like that, becuase I've only completed on easy.
It's really annoying me, so someone please help. :3

good game I enjoyed it and I enjoy hack and slash games clunky jump but after a while you get used to it.

P.S. LOAD your game instead of starting a new one to get the lightning sword endings okay I hope they make another

You might remember the stage with many platforms where u have to make several small jumps one platform to another? I had fun just running to the next platform and by timing my jump in b/w the space of the platforms, the "glitch" makes u go up and land on top of the platform, kinda like how u slip thru the platform like a ghost in Super Smash Bros.

The first boss in hard mode was a bit annoying since you had to constantly run to avoid his lava bursting from the ground.....

Overall, i like the style of the game but much improvements is needed.

To anyone having trouble with the final boss, I ended up winning with a cowardly but pretty effective strategy:

Use the fire sword, and stay on the other side of the arena. Charge up your jump, and every time he rushes at you, jump up and over him. If you jump when he's almost about to hit you, he'll use his combo and stand still a while after that. Then, smack him with the sword and run for it! Your magic power runs out after like two strikes, but if you just keep jumping over his head it shouldn't be a problem waiting for it to recharge. Just make sure you jump far enough away each time, because sometimes he turns around and still manages to hit you.

Hope that helps!
