Dynamite Knight

by funkadunkado - Jam Entry

Dynamite Knight is our 72 hour game jam!

A castle has dropped out of no where and crushed your family! You are now seeking vengeance by destroying the castle with your bombs! First you have to destroy the 4 support beams that hold up the castle. Once these are destroyed you must escape the castle before it falls on top of you!

We had 4 developers on the team so we decided to split up and create 2 distinct levels. 1 team created a top down level while the other team concentrated on a side scrolling level.

Only 1 castle is included and its a rough one! Can you make it to the end?!

Requirements: Your favorite web browser and flash plugin.


Top Down level:
w - move up
a - move left
s - move down
d - move right
mouse to aim.
left mouse button to shoot (you can hold down the button to shoot continuously)

Side Scrolling level:
space - jump
mouse to aim
left mouse button to shoot (you can hold down the button to shoot continuously)

Hope you have fun playing!

Feedback is greatly appreciated!

Pretty fun arena shooter. Loved the animation style and the blood spatters. Of course, once the level filled up with blood splatters, was tough to see the bullets and enemies. Would be good to have some indicator of progress in level (num killed, score, timer?) or possibly weapon upgrades. Nice work!

Having your family killed by a castle sounds rough. Interesting character design.

Loved the humour in this game. When the parents got killed by the castle I knew this would be a funny game.

Fast and furious game play! The colors are a little too similar, but I got the hang of it after a little bit.

So you uploaded it twice? At Azykial and here? Why?

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
