JamBaconGameJam 10 One Weapon - Many Uses
Submitted1 year 3 months ago


I recommend to download "Binaries: Windows" version (better performance) Web version is only recommended to allow Mac/Linux users playing it

You're a Mad Mage exploring a mysterious Tower in search for knowledge!

---This version contains 9 levels!---

This is a beta version that I created for the BaconGamJam 10, I will keep working in this project and make a full version including more levels, bosses and cut scenes!

The game contains only 4 colours and is inspired by old Game Boy games.

If did you like my work please follow me on twitter and stay tuned to the news!



Thanks for playing!

fil089 (Filipe Costa) 8 9 7 7 6 7 7 8 Bem... Pra quem pretendia fazer uma versão mais bem acabada e, possivelmente, comercial do jogo que apresentou aqui... Essa já é uma versão que me deixaria satisfeito de jogar em um navegador. Convenhamos que magia e elementos da natureza em si são um tanto quanto discutíveis quando se trata de descrevê-los como "uma arma só". Mas mesmo que eles possam ser classificados sob uma única palavra, podem ser infinitas coisas ao mesmo tempo. Mas se é "Conhecimento" essa arma de que você esta falando... Agora sim estamos falando de uma arma com infinitas possibilidades de uso! Conhecimento em si é somente o ato de saber sobre algo e ser capaz de usar essa informação a seu favor. Fazer o mago aprender uma magia antes de usá-la no jogo foi uma sacada genial! Tema nota 10! Poucos jogos que eu vi até agora foram tão bem com o tema da jam! Gráficos bem bonitos pro tamanho da resolução, efeitos visuais e sonoros bem aplicados, gameplay bem balanceado ao estilo "Super Meat Boy", ideia quase 100% original, controles simples e funcionais e... "Que se faça a Galinha!" ou pato/ganso/emplumado! E, diferente do que eu andei testemunhando por aqui, você podia ter entrado na categoria história sem muitos problemas já que você deu uma "boa desculpa" pra introduzir o conceito do seu jogo enquanto outros participantes não tinham nem isso pra começar. Espero ansioso pela versão final.
PopoSensei 8 9 8 2 8 7 1 7 WOW! Amazing game dude! I really like the art direction you went to. This game has problems with difficulty and I think some of it is because of controls. There isn't really anything new here though and I'm not quite sure why you left Humor into the rating category, but I'm gonna exclude that one while giving the overall score. Anyway great game. Make adjustments to the difficulty, more levels, a game world, make a story to it all and start selling it some where. People will be interested!

    Error report: Only one of the candles in level 5 can be lit. I'm on Windows standalone.

    Pretty neat. Kind of hard though. It's kind of annoying that you have to make frame perfect jumps to get past the spike levels. In later versions I'd push back the spike levels to the end and move the cannon levels to the beginning.

    @ThunderousEcho This is not an error. There's a correct order to light them, try follow the "!" baloon to know the right order!

  • ThunderousEcho (1 year 3 months ago)

    DielMormac, there was no "!" balloon. After lighting the first candle, I tried to light each of the others, to no avail.

    @lambinvoker, which version did you played? 1.0 or 1.1? I published the version 1.1 feel minutes a go with some adjustments!

    Nice graphics, challenging game! I included it in my Bacon Game Jam 10 compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :)
