Es' Cape

by EncryptedShadow - 48 Hour Competition Entry

Es' Cape

Welcome one and all to Es' Cape.
A game about one cube's love for his cape and his attempt at
escaping the clutches of evil.

Will You Help Him??

If you dont already have XNA - you will need the XNA Redistributable
And here is the link:

This will allow you to run the exe if you dont have XNA

If you do, then dont worry :D

Es REALLY REALLY likes highscores - Don't let him down!

I hope you all really enjoy the game and I hope to hear your thoughts in the future.

I pressed '1' and it just sort-of... sat there. Didn't load, sadly.

Use the number pad peeeps,

It does work, I have gotten others to get it to work

It isn't the most challenging game ever, and the menu system could probably use some work, but I did like the meat of the game; past around 15 points it gets pretty fun. There's no way to restart the game after death, though.

I love the boggley eyes. +1 for humor. Not sure about the depth of gameplay though, it would have been good if there were multiple layers to stand on. Nice twist on the theme - es's cape rather than escape. This is stretching it a bit but at least you think outside the box, (unlike your characters, who are all boxes).

Umm numpad? That's an interesting choice. There is not a lot of gameplay, and jumps are too gravity-deprived. Some enemy actions would go a long way.

I was at work most of the weekend, so 48 hours turned into just short of 11. Atleast I tried, going to work on it and improve it for the future though, like the restart feature and mutiple levels and more for the enemies to do.

Nice little game, but even it was made in only 11 hours I'd like to see some more stuff (e.g., animated eyes or a moving landscape). Please change the keys for the introduction, I hate having the Num key activated. ;-)

11 hours of work - well, it's not that bad, I think. I actually like the gameplay (and that I can jump very precisely; having boxes as characters helps here greatly), but it does need some variety - this you already know. More enemies, jumping ones or stuff and so on. I've seen unplayable jam entries, so if this was done in 11 hours, it's definitely a fine entry.
