10 Second Dungeon Hero

by sP0CkEr2 - Jam Entry

Granny, Kid and Scout have been transported to another dimension where time only exists in 10 second intervals.

Only you can guide them through all 30 levels, where they will find the portal back home.


This game lets you play thru 30 levels of a dynamic dungeon. You must delete all the monsters within 10 seconds of each room to open the door and advance to the next room.

When all rooms have been cleard of monsters, a key will drop that when picked up will open the last door to the monsters lair.

Find the double door to enter the monsters lair. Kill it, and advance to the next level.

After each level you will be able to add point levels to your players skills:


Weapon -- how well you fight when attacked in melee. And how well you weapon fires (speed).
Armor -- the more the better.
Strength -- strength of attack on a monster.
Luck -- how much gold will show up when you kill a monster.
Speed -- how much movement you player can make.




Mouse/Left Mouse Button

We hope you enjoy playing!!

Wow, nice game! It really puts pressure on you to move fast through the dungeons, feels like a mix between Gauntlet, Roguelikes, and Binding of Isaac =]

Somehow I have less points than the second, still I'm first on the High-Scores?

Nice start for a dungeon crawler engine. However, the background music was obviously a knockoff of Castlevania, so I'll pass on rating this one.

Cute game, I liked the unusual selection of characters especially.

GaTechGrad > little confused why you wouldt rate a JAM entry when it uses music from another game?

Fun little dungeon crawl, pretty satisfying to upgrade and kill monsters faster. One thing though, you NEED to make the character faster... Especially with the time pressure, having a slow character really was stressful.

The time limit on rooms was an entertaining twist. The bosses felt a little too easy; all I had to do was min/max my stats and they hid in the corner. Very simple but also enjoyable.

The game's pretty catchy! I love the fact that timer pushes us to do our best! I upgraded my weapon and luck the most. The bosses are easier than the minions, haha! :P
I got the top score w00t! Hope no one beats it!

Aug 28, 2013 @ 6:09am

>Epiphane -- press re-roll to get a character with a speed stat of 10 or better

>AmyDee -- i have an updated post compo version where the enemies and bosses shoot back -- much harder

Pretty straightforward concept. You use 2D unity before 4.3! :)

The gameplay was pretty easy and the artwork seems completely random, I really wasn't sure what to think of it. Combined with the Castlevania music which I think breaks LD rules a bit, I feel like the game took simple shooter mechanics and a timer and through it together with whatever sprites were on hand. The gameplay itself could be fun, but the aiming didn't seem as intuitive or accurate as I would normally expect.

Ok, it was pretty fun. But I could swear there were rooms I killed the monster way before 10 seconds and no door appeared. But nice game, man!

I had a real blast playing this. I did twice through and each time was great! First as the boy scout and the second time as the granny. I dumped all my points into speed.

thanks for the game it was great!

Love me some dungeon stuff!

Strange game, not really bad! :) I didn't really get what was going on, but I still liked it!
Music was kinda annoying, though...

Nice game. I didn't get very far, but still thought it was pretty cool. No way I could last 30 levels though xD

Particularly liked the unusual player selection, funny enemies, and skill levelling. Granny's my favorite

epic game -- I loved the way you had 10 seconds in each room... you used the theme nicely :)

Good job! I got number three on the scores! Woo! Awesome game, pretty nice graphics, good music and sound. There seemed to be a bit unreliability with the timer. But that is alright. I think there should be a sound when you get a kill. Something simple. But still. NICE WORK! Keep it up!

Cool game. Pretty hard to play.

Sep 2, 2013 @ 5:48pm

Nice cute game, love it! I featured it in my LD27 compilation series if you'd like to check it out!

Sep 2, 2013 @ 8:19pm

I liked the character selection, and the game was pretty fun. Solid entry.

I enjoyed this more than I thought!

Sep 6, 2013 @ 1:52am

Heheh, weird little game.
A little dissapointed granny isn't melee attacking with her purse. That would have been awesome...

I like how you have 10 seconds each time you switch rooms, I was actually thinking about doing that on my entry too!
Game is a bit hard, though! Aiming is a little difficult, but manageable. The rooms are huge so it's a little tense when you have to cross it to reach another door, haha.

Cool game! =D

Sep 14, 2013 @ 5:10pm

I like the music for this. I like the idea of only having 10 seconds in each room too, put the pressure on. Could do with the shooting being tweaked though as it didn't seem to fire at the mouse pointer.
