(English) My Entry for BGJ 10 "One Weapon - Many Uses" and my very first Game Jam.

You are a simpatic little light green square that has a spear and must hit the target. But the target is in some dificulty places to reach. Use your spear to solve the problems, fend away monsters and, ofcourse, hit the target!

Você é um pequenino e simpático quadradinho verde-claro que tem uma lança e precisa acertar o alvo. Mas o alvo está em lugares difíceis de se alcançar. Use sua lança para solucionar os problemas, se livrar de monstros e, é claro, acretar o alvo!

The controls are pretty tight, though I would like if the camera moved up a bit as I was going up in some of the levels as I couldn't see what was above me (however maybe you can use this as a gameplay mechanic). Audio also goes a surprisingly long way, so a quick and easy enhancement would be to add some fitting music and a few layered sound effects.

    Now my antivirus is complaining about your game once I unpacked it. I won't risk running it. =(

    It says that there is a virus, so I cannot play it :/

    For anyone who have been having problems with the game been detected by their anti-viruses as been infected, I have recompiled and reuploaded the game. Please try again and contact me for any updates in the situation. Thanks for contacting me.

    Thank's for the wake up call, though that was the only way I currently have to set a download. Guess I don't have time to remedy the situation anymore, but thank you for telling me that anyways... (ó.ò)
