This demo got solid bases and is already fun to play!! Here are some lil observations :

- When you pick different weapons and/or trinkets, at some point, the only options you have when you level up is to update what you already have until max level which can be a bit frustrating considering one of the fun bit of this kind of game is trying all the different weapons!

- I feel like it needs a bit more visual cues on the character when you take damage

- The xp progression is a bit hard to read, I can see that there are different shaped and colored xp particles when you kill some bigger monsters ( bosses ? ), but it's hard to read if it does anything in the xp bar. Maybe some calibrating could be done ?

I hope it can help further improving Hell Slayer! I had lot of fun trying it and will keep an eye on it. The classic pixel art style and clear hud is very cool already as well ❤
