Song of Adventure Day (sAd)

by MisfitBYTE - Competition Entry

Z - Jump
X - Attack
Arrows - Move

Help the fat headed adventures that went out alone escape the evil clutches of the Super Hyper Ninja Conclave. Every time you save one, they'll zip you a weapon down through the magic audio portal bar of Takethisordie.

(Swords dent on bricks and break.)

Single screen platform shooter with a purty waveform backdrop. Your adventure ends when the music stops so be quick about it.

*Waveform is of the original track, which was changed to make the single level faster paced. Original track found here..


*Source included in zip, its a Construct file.

Updated the screenshot and the link that disappeared.

Such a strange and interesting little game... the music is very ominous and the visuals with the waveform are really unique. I had a hard time figuring out how to jump over certain blocks, but when I got the sword I was able to fly around the whole stage. The weapon inside the laserbeam is a really cool idea.

Thanks, I swear that big castle jump is possible, you just gotta be jumping when you touch the brick sides too I think.

Doesn't work here - tells me I need to install DirectX 8, even though I've already got DirectX 11 installed. :(

I know it needs DirectX 9, maybe this link will help. http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_other-gaming/have-directx-11-wont-play-games-says-i-need/300f3c23-d2cb-4750-9566-aad125857c8c

Cool idea. Sadly, I wasn't able to get the music to play. The rest of the game seemed to work, but no music. I see it says original track found here, but I don't see a link.

Did the sound effects play? I don't know what could cause that.

No idea where the link went but heres a youtube (album cover) of the song.
