Aloneman

by glowingredhue - Jam Entry

Ok, my first L.D. submission. An homage to crusty old Commodore 64 platformers. If you can't stand the controls,

(Arrows to move,
Z to jump,
X to place skulls if you're on a level that gives you them, they can be used as platforms but realize that human skulls are a limited resource..!!)

..then you mostly have them to thank.

IF YOU FALL TOO FAR YOU WILL DIE.
COLLECT ALL THE CROWNS TO ADVANCE. BUT IT MATTERS NOT. YOU ARE ALONE.

Would have liked to add more.

I love how... when you lose... THIS GAME THROWS YOUR ASS TO THE DESKTOP LIKE YESTERDAY'S GARBAGE! BOOM! GET OUTTA HERE! The music is so rad. I couldn't play this very well because of the old school jumping restrictions. But that's what makes me enjoy it!

Love the retro style and the music. It messes up the window size of all currently open windows when going into fullscreen mode, though, which is a bit annoying.

Definitely has that old-style feel to it. Almost makes me nostalgic. If the controls were meant to be horrible, then you have succeeded at that sir! :)

It's sad that I can't move while I am in air (or it is buggy)... music and graphics are well done for the retro style but the controls... grr... :)
