Escape from the Wolf Castle

by Petzi - 48 Hour Competition Entry

My game is about a rabbit trapped in a sort of castle full of wolves. I originally planned it to be more complex, with having the wolves chase you around, finding other rabbits and some other things. If it weren't for the 12-hour extension, this game would have a really small test room instead of a proper level and no sounds, so THANK YOU WEBSITE CRASH!

The game is sort of a dungeon crawler. It should really have more levels, but it was hard enough to make a single one and I don't have any more time. You run through a maze, find things blocking your path, and find things to unblock your path. The game's biggest feature is the turn-based fighting system I managed to put together, which I think is pretty cool for a 48-hour game. It's also pretty fun. I hope you enjoy playing it as much as I enjoyed making it!

EDIT: In response to the comments, the game did always feature a rabbit. I didn't really think about it, the only time it seemed weird was when I was making the bow-holding sprite, but even then it still seemed strangely natural.

As someone else whose entry hinges on the inclusion of a bunny, I salute you. Also, the game was quite good.

Great! A Bunny using a bow, wtf. I loved the game, too short though but it is a 48h competition. Good job!

I like the exploration style, and it fits the theme well. I wonder if the game originally had a bunny as the protagonist, as you're opening chests, using keys and doors, and wielding a bow! Battle system was super slow and the game crashed immediately on one of my computers. Otherwise it was a good game!

The twelve hours extension was just for uploading, so not going to rate unless you put it as jam. Otherwise, not bad, nice idea for fighting, but it's really too short.

I suck at this battle system. The game is good though. However, I am of the same opinion as Shigor that this should be in the "jam" category. So I rated it a bit lower.

Was pretty bizarre, I did get the fighting system and did feel it was kinda uncomfortable. I like off the wall

Nice old school adventure game. For me the reaction based fighting felt quite difficult so I didn't get that far.
