Alone with a flashlight

by norgas - 48 Hour Compo Entry

I take too much time on the keyboard mecanics. The game is really short. I hope you enjoy the art.

Everytime you use a grey key you lose hp. The gold keys are use for jump/shoot/turn on the flashlight. The eye makes you see items around it. The normal bomb press the key around it. The atom bomb press all the key in the same line. The heart heals you. Try finding the secret room :p

SPACE: Sprint
ENTER: Pause

\!/UPDATE\!/ Post-compo version change log:
-Add a "Press SPACE to run"
-Change the level layout
-Change the probability of bomb and heart so that the game is less hard
-Fix when you press the "a" key the player stop running.
-Fix when you win the game you return to a pause menu
-(Linux) Fix the wrong execute path in


P.S: Thanks to pulkanat and J for the help on the linux build.

I needed the "SPACE: Sprint" from the comment, so bad I couldn't read it in game coz I almost missed the game :o. Besides, I really like the keyboard to explore ! It creates the "oh my god I've to hurry where is my light omg omg omg got it !!!!!! oh wait need a gun now and I'm low life AAAAAHHHH !" effect which is soooo epic.
The theme is commonly used (I'm alone and looking for people) and the overall realisation is great.
Best fun I had from the game I tried so far =)
Good job, Congrats for your game !

The idea is great, unfortunately I don't think it really works because I don't have direct control on what key I have to press and I an at the hands of luck, which is not so funny. The graphics are good as is the music, but sometimes it is a little annoying.

very hard, nice to have some music and the graphics are good, the linux build is a little broken, you have to edit and change "./LD22" to "./dontRunMe"
