Granny Death - The 10 second buff game

by Fluffy Tigers in the Sky - Jam Entry

A game where every buff only last 10 seconds!

But don't be sad, you can collect masses of them.
On the flip side - masses of buff items == hordes of enemies who drop them.

Ah, and by the way: You're playing senile nice Granny Death fighting her way through a dungeon.

Controls: Have a look in the Almanac or:
You can walk with arrow keys or the analog stick on your gamepad.
Standard Attack "A" on Keyboard, "A" on gamepad
Whirlwind "S" on Keyboard, "X" on gamepad
Magnet "D" on Keyboard, "B" on Gamepad

when you die, type your name and press enter to get to the skill menu :)

Gets a little ridiculous, but couldn't stop playing (until my machine got overloaded and crashed).

I love the look of the enemies. Perhaps the initial attack speed should be a bit faster though.

I like the visual stile. Must have been a lot of work. I always got surrounded and could not really see what was going on. Still a great entry!

Aug 27, 2013 @ 4:55pm

Fun, looks good, but you'll quickly tire of it. Background music is nice and the 'acting' is amusing. Could have done with a little more feedback on the interactions - screen shake and blood (or hit particles?). Again, the art is very pretty.

The art style is great, I could see this becoming a webshow easily! I think I'm not very good at the game.

Haha! Great art and a really fun theme! Reminds me of a more attractive version of Gauntlet.

Awesome artwork and satisfying gameplay. It just had a really nice crazy vibe to it - would be fun to see it expanded into a proper dungeon crawl. Good work!

Loved the graphics and the music was great before it got repetitive... overall very polished in terms of presentation... attack was a little too slow and I found myself overwhelmed pretty fast.

Great entry and good luck!

Nice art, gameplay is quiet good. Could be improved with better enemy hit animation.

I will probably have nightmares about goblins in berets tonight but at least it was worth it.

Aug 27, 2013 @ 10:44pm

Really captures the day-to-day problems grannies face. thugs and bakery sales. I like this a lot, Im also impression on the technical point by how many enemies you could put on screen without lag! Nice game fluffy.

The comments and texts in the Almanac are funny! I thought about the 10-second-powerup-mechanic too, but discarded it because I thought it would be too short - you solved that nicely by stacking them. It's really confusing to have 10+ of them though - I stopped caring what I have pretty early and just ran in, feeling like the badass granny I am. The graphics look pretty cool!

Good job - and congratulations on your first LD entry!

PS: I like your username.

I didn't really know what was going on but I loved to bash the enemies haha. Was fun and pretty addicting music not so bad either, graphics creative in their own sense very fun!

Fun game. Not sure how well it fits the theme, as only powerups have anything to do with ten seconds, but the art is pretty awesome.

One of my favorite games of all time... Unbelievably addictive. I fully updated my Granny Death and she became Super Granny, wiping out masses of goblins until the game got too laggy it was unplayable and Google Chrome told me the page was unresponsive twice. That's how good it is.

You might need to add enemy amount clipping if you continue working on this, (PLEASE do!) as you can see how it freezes at the end of this video showcasing Super Granny:

Great graphics. I found this game fun and amusing. Great job. I featured it in my video compilation series of LD27 games, if you would like to check it out :)

Ahah, I love the granny's voice.
I went till 11k kills, then I let granny meets her destiny.
But first games, without too much upgrades, were really fun.
