Hello! This WIP topic is for a puzzle platform game I created over the past several days for the Ludum Dare competition. I ran out of time shortly before submission but decided to release it here instead. It's fairly short at the moment, consisting of only twenty levels. I'd hoped to get feedback since this game will most likely be revamped in the near future.
up/down arrow keys - select option
Z - confirm option
arrow keys - move
Z - descend (drains 1 magic gradually)
X - shoot (costs 1 magic)
C - turn temporarily invincible (costs 25 magic)
In every level there are seven gems that open the exit door once collected. Draxx's magic is used to perform various actions and must be carefully rationed to navigate each area.
In a fit of boredom, the despotic and insidious Shadow Czar decides to shrink his subjects with an ancient incantation. Chaos erupts as his magic permeates the land, reducing its peoples to microscopic proportions. Moments before being affected by the spell, the kindly wizard Draxx encases himself in a mystic bubble. This protects him from the curse by negating its potency and causing it to merely diminish his stature. Now, he alone is able to combat the Shadow Czar's minions that guard the sacred gems needed to remedy this crisis. If he can collect enough of them then their magical energy should be sufficient to restore his countrymen to their original sizes.
Thank you for your time. Comments and criticisms are welcome, and I hope you enjoy the game!
