Spell of Old

by Tanser - Jam Entry

Queer mage have found himself in dungeon. You control him and in order to escape you have to go through a maze of traps. At each level there is interference which you have to pass over with the help of rune magic. This old magic is the spell of teleportation. You have power to cast Blink once each level. Use your magic wisely and get the caster out of the dungeon.

WASD for movement and spacebar for jump. Hold right mouse button and then press left mouse button to teleport.

Created by Petar Dimitrov - Art,
Miroslav Dimitrov - Programming.

*Fix: Removed the clicks which Garageband had produced in the soundtrack.

Why is blinking so complicated? Why not just one left click?

The idea is interesting, not sure how many levels you could make with the concept, though.

Loving the blinking concept, obviously limiting me to one fits the theme, but I want more damnit!

The design of the level is a bit daunting, but the concept is nice.

This is a nice little idea! I liked the trapped door at last level. Jumping is a little fuzzy, though, and it would have been nice to be able to see a little bit further, because sometimes you can't see where you are going to jump :) The hardships of being a mage, I guess :)

Very good game, you hits the bulls eye with the one time blinking and the graphics are like in old games and made with love

Really great art on this one. I'm a pixel kinda guy so this completely resonated with me. Also felt like nice use of theme. Great stuff!

Cool game, love the use of theme and the consent. I included this game in my Ludum Dare Compilation series, if you'd like to check it out :)

Nice but the music got a bit irritating

The game is good, but the movement mechanic is not one of the greatest.

Very good idea, it's pleasant to be played ;) Music is climatic, but it became to too boring, and sometimes I see problem with collision(I moved through the block) ;) Overall congrats for finish and good luck! Good job. ;)

Nice job, but too short.

Nice mood here, but you should concentrate more on the game design aspect. I don't feel like jumping with the creeping mage.
Продължавайте в същия дух ! Успех!

Nice idea, but the actual platforming is horrible :-/ It's too slow, jump doesn't feel right and overall it's not elegant. That click sounds when walking don't fit the music really well too. Graphics is relatively nice (I'm not pixel art fan but this seems ok to me..) Next time try to concentrate on the gameplay element first :-) I'm sorry that I was so critique and I wish you better luck next time.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


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 ( 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.
