Slayin is a browser-based arcade game that puts you in control of a brave knight, tasked with slaughtering horde after horde of enemies using just the one sword in his hand. Defeating monsters reward you with gold, which can then be used to purchase better equipment or health-restoring items from a robed merchant that appears from time to time.

There's a boss to defeat every couple of levels, and new enemy varieties are introduced as you rack up your kills in the game. The background scenery even changes to reflect harder difficulty areas, and you'll have to be on your toes if you want to get your name registered on the online leaderboards.

Slayin is available to play at Pixel Licker's site.
