The Curse of Mellonby kyyrma - 48 Hour Compo Entry
Curse of Mellon
Curse of Mellon is a simple Metroidvania-type of game, with the catch being that you only have one minute to make your way to the fabled Crystal Skull. You can extend your time by picking up artifacts, but be aware that once you die or your time runs out you lose all the artifacts you have collected and get returned to the dungeon entrance!
The environment doesn't reset even if you get thrown back to the entrance, so use that to your advantage. Open up shortcuts and find a way to get the Crystal Skull!
Z - jump
X - bomb
Enter - pause / return to entrance
Arrow key left / right - movement
Arrow key up - activate switches
Please note that the all the options in the main menu simply start the game.
The game uses the Emulogic font.
NOTE: There are some reports of the game crashing. If you experience such behaviour, could you kindly report your OS and any error messages the game throws. Thanks!

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.
