Left & Knight

by toaster - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Left & Knight is a one button game, use z to jump.

Kill the slimes, avoid the bombs, survive.

There are some strange bugs that I still cannot stop, such as slimes spawning in walls, so if that happens, you will have to refresh. I'll upload a fix when I can figure one out. If any Stencyl Guru's want to look at the source and help me, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Hehe, great job :)
The animations are cute, and I like the gameplay.

Nice, simple game. The random generation of blobs was sometimes off, one appeared in the floor and another one appeared too close to a bomb which makes it impossible, but otherwise nice!

fun, but hard and frustrating, blob glitched in a wall ounce too :(
Nice take on an infinite runner

Got stuck on wave four when the slime spawned in a brick, but other than that, good fun!

The blobs sometimes spawn inside the platform but otherwise, well done!

A bit buggy. I've gotten stuck on two levels, first because the little blob appeared underneath the floor, and once because I died but still got to the next level (but without the knight). It is also a bit too easy or too hard depending on how the blobs and spikes appear. Still, great use of theme and great graphics!

Great little game. Very good!

Fun enough, although the wya you move really fast forward when coming down from a jump takes some adapting to.

Also, each run ended, not because I died, but because a slime would spawn in a floor and there was no way to kill it. (Wave 4 first time, wave 10 second)

very cute! also yay stencyl! (i used it for my game too). i like the visual style too, and i like how quickly everything moves. i maybe would've liked designed stages or at least more accurate generation, because it makes things feel stale after a bit and sometimes the blobs spawn into an unwinnable situation.

It was fun until the blob spawned inside the floor, hope you can fix this bug! The controls might need just a little bit of work.

Apr 29, 2013 @ 8:59am

Quite a gamebreaking bug: http://imm.io/14mjH

The music was sorta indifferent, but the graphics had a nice retro feel. Simple but solid controls. Okay.

Thanks for the feedback. Yeah I apologize for the spawning in wall issues. I spent most of the weekend trying to fix that, but I've yet to solve the solution. The Post-Compo version will be more varied and less buggy. Hopefully I'll have that done in a week or two.

This is a great game no issues with spawning here. This was a lot of fun and challenging (best I got was wave 15)

It's a nice, simple idea, and I like the way it looks. Unfortunately I wind up unable to progress due to spawning bugs within a few levels.

Pretty fun (while it lasts). I like the feel of the game, the graphics, music and color pallete work nicely together. Good job :)

Cute graphics and nice idea. I appeared in a blank stage twice, there wasn't any slime to kill or bombs that could kill me.

Good job overall but the jump could be tweaked a bit. Love the graphics!

Good simple game, although the blob did spawn in an impossible place very often.

May 6, 2013 @ 7:36pm

The enemy got stuck in the platform and I wasn't able to kill it. The game is really fitting the game and fun to play, nothing to complain, n1! Especially the graphics and the few colors really aid the mood.

I really like the style. You've really captured minimalism in the gameplay aswell. I got to a point where I got no spawn so I couldn't go to the nexe wave.

Great game, really fun idea! Though sometimes the player starts walking before all of the bombs spawn and settle, leading my character right into them.

I never say "no" to a single button game! Nice concept - minimalistic to the bone, with nice graphics and I'm a big fan of randomly generated levels. Too bad some levels are just unbeatable. You might have gone a step too far following the theme, adding one or two other elements to the game might have make it a lot more engaging.

Wow, kinda spooky in a way but I liked it! Had a level where only mines appeared and I couldn't progress but otherwise worked very well.

May 18, 2013 @ 11:15am

Slime was in wall :( This could definitely go somewhere. Gameplay was good!

The slime in the floor unfortunately stopped me making much progress. :(

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.
