The Liver Trial

by ThatSnail - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Note:
The Windows version doesn't work. Use Windows (Working). I kept both because of LD rules; the first didn't have SDL.dll in it so it wouldn't run.

Note 2:
Edited the Windows version again, replacing the Debug version of SDL_gfx.dll with the Release version so that it's playable without MSVC++ installed.

"One day, God was very bored.
So He created many creatures.
But Thou creatures were not adapted to their environment.
THEY suffered.

So He devised a test.
The subjects would enter the liver of a turtle,
and Upon death, They would become stronger...."

Okay I didn't finish at all, there's maybe two levels that demonstrate the concept but other than that there's nothing.

Consider the game done when it restarts you back to the first level.

WAD to move.

THE CONCEPT:

It's hard to see it in the actual game but essentially when you die you gain an upgrade that'll help you in your next life. When you land on spikes, you get iron boots that slow down your movement but also make it possible to walk across spikes and break certain landbridges.

Aww, I can't play, it says SDL.dll is missing.

It looks interesting, seeing as you appear to have made it on the back of your physics homework XD

I'd like to see the idea developed more. I wanted to play it for longer. I think it would be good if you kept that style of hand drawn graphics too, but maybe make them a bit more polished.
