This became strangely addictive, trying to find the best place to spawn my next guy and making sure I spawned him AS SOON as it was possible to do so. I feel like this is on to something, if there were a few more deterministic things a player could do between rounds to improve his odds... Travel a world map to battle increasingly powerful hoards...
I'm saving those features for the sequel! I want to release a game each month this year, where each game builds off of the previous game, but for now, I think its therapeutic to just get a game out the door :)
I enjoyed this, the world needs more stuff like this in the mix.
I am super happy you like it!
Thanks so much for the review, I will continue making more awesome stuff.
Just wanted to say I love these and I'm so happy to see the return of Billy Lo!
Thanks! It will get better from here.
Such a great approach to the Ludum Dare theme with a perfect little platformer!
You did such an awesome job with this! I grew up on Construx so there's a special place in my heart for this video. Cool song too.
thanks so much, Tom. That means an incredible amount coming from you. Newgrounds is how I started animating. Been around here for many years...
I really hope people take the time to play this all the way through because it's amazing.
I really like the overall vibe of this game! Since it was adapted from touch, I have a few suggestions:
1) If user clicks on the enemy at the start, run the game in mouse mode, where you use the mouse to move left and right, and press the mouse button to punch down.
2) If the user presses a key to attack, remain in keyboard mode, but maybe use the arrow keys to toggle between columns, rather than have the player hold it down to slide - toggling columns would allow for quicker player response time AND accuracy.
I love the mix of action melee and puzzle!
That Game of Thrones intro... I just can't even imagine how excited you were to unveil that.
Oh yes, we are very proud of Renegade. He did a fantastic job with it.
We were also excited that you took time out to be part of it. Thank you so much!
Brought a tear to my eye.
Happy to hear that Tom! :)
The King of the Portal will forever be on Newgrounds.
Would be handy if both spacebar and UP worked for jumping. Also an in-game tip telling you the checkpoint replenishes grenades would be helpful, as well as a checkpoint before the rolling cannon that you have to wait for before jumping over. There are a lot of cool things about this game, it deserves more of a chance from people.
Thank you very much. I will update the game with those tips!
