Nice idea, at first seem pointless, but its in fact an interesting system. Need more items, and a bit less difficulty.
Made it to level 3, but seem really hard to go beyond.

I managed to pass level 3. I used the "keep the mouse held down" strat!

Pretty art and the gameplay concept was really neat. Good work! It is pretty challenging to beat it

Tweeted that I would rate the game so here I am ^^ Gameplay is simple and still fun so that's a great plus. Made it to level 3 ^^ Didn't understand the game at first, was clicking like crazy untill I read a comment about keeping the mouse down haha.

Simple and cute. Really like graphics!

Is it bug? I can heal myself between levels (when it shows message about gem and timer is stopped).

Couldn't beat both "Lv1 + Lv2" dungeons, nice graphics!

The graphics are really cute. One time the game froze on the "new item" screen and had to restart, though.

this is frantic! really like it, well designed but extremely difficult game. made it to level 3 a few times but was never quick enough with my mouse. would love to try this on a smart phone.

This game is smart overall, I think that the concept is quite ingenious, even though it's quite simple. Good job !

SO GOOD 5/5. agree with angrygeometry, could make a very cool mobile game.

Once I discovered that you can hold the mouse down, this went from incredibly difficult down to really really difficult. I made it to the third level, but monitoring health and time is surprisingly hard. Neat idea, nice art, great execution!

I also could not get past level 3 no matter how I tried! Please tell us there's some secret to it!

I have the feeling this is getting more difficult on an exponential scale! ;) Very cool concept though! Some sound would have made this even better.

I love this take on the minimalist rpg, simple but smart.

Really cool, agree it could be a bit easier though.

Glitched it and got to level 9. Wut?

Brilliantly simple take on the theme. I couldn't get higher than level 5 but it was fun.

Nice little game. I like it!

Interesting idea of breaking an RPG down to its most basic level. To be perfectly honest I didn't find it all that fun though, a bit monotonous and kind of too hard once you get to level 3. I found the idea of having to monitor the different resources simultaneously quite interesting. Nice simple graphic style too.

I used the "hold down rest while the item-get window is up" strat. Worked very well.

Sep 2, 2013 @ 3:15pm

Spectacular pixel art, as always. And very neat game, getting past level 3 was beyond me, but with some sound a tad more balancing, it could be a really great game!

Really interesting concept, incredibly difficult, but fun. :)

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 ( 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.
