Spectral Swordby kratorspore - 48 Hour Compo Entry
In Spectral Sword, you *only get one chance* to hit an enemy. If you miss or use the incorrect phase colors you will die.
The aim of the game is to get to the exit (a glowing blue-white particle thing) while collecting coins and killing evil knights to increase your score.
Use the WASD keys to move forwards, left, back and right. Q and E turn you left and right.
To kill a knight you have to cast the correct spectral phases on your sword:
There are 3 phases and each phase can be a different color. Click a color chip under a phase name to charge the phase with that color.
Phases take a little time to charge. Make sure all phases you want to use are fully changed before you attack.
* Phase 1 color should be the same as the color of the Knight's body.
* Phase 2 color should be the same as the color of the Knight's shield if it has one.
* Phase 3 color should be the same color as the aura/glow surrounding the Knight if it has one.
You have to be right next to the Knight to hit it.
If the knight doesn't not have a shield or an aura, you don't have to set the phase 2 and 3 powers.

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.
