Lost World Lucy

by Zaron - 48 Hour Competition Entry

Lost World Lucy and the Temple of the Swine Lord!

It's an arcadey-shooter where you try to outrun the clock while bustin' caps into floating undead pig heads. As Lucy advances through the tomb's chambers, the pigs get harder, better, faster, stronger! And also just more numerous. Good luck, Lucy!

Totally intend to keep working on this in the future, so feel free to leave any suggestions down yonder! c:

This is fun! Also, the presentation is lovely.

A problem though is the size of the pickups. They are quite small, and I can never tell if they are supposed to be pickups or enemy attacks.

Not the most original thing ever, but the execution is superb and the game is very fun. There are a few balancing issues with being swarmed at later levels, but still one of the top LD48 games that I've played.

Fun fun! Very stable and well polished. Good audio too.

Very fun! However, I felt like I was instead travelling deeper into this temple, rather then escaping it.

Nice graphics though, I like the protagonist :)

Nice and polished game! I agree that the pickups should be a bit bigger though.
My high score is 9243.

Very good, one of those I'll be playing a while after LD is over.

This is a nice one. Caught myself playing it for far longer than I expected!

Not very innovative, but very fun to play. Controls feel really good. Graphics are fine - although there are visible style differences between chamber's interior, main character and pig heads. Also, I kept looking for some kind of life meter when collected hearts or got hurt, because at first I didn't notice that these influence the timer. Audio is quite decent, wasn't hurting my ears and didn't feel out of place. The game does have this "oldschool scent" - it's becoming harder and harder, but doesn't feel unfair. I like it very much, although got only to chamber 19.

If you break chamber 20, you're one of the better players.
If you break 30, you're elite.
If you break 40, I bow to you, because holy damn.
