Spirit Dance

by olkeencole - Jam Entry

You play a shaman entrusted with guarding a sacred shrine. Use the power of your fire wheel avatar to ward off evil spirits. To do so, you have to trap the spirits by encasing them with your fire trail, but watch out! The righteous flames hurt you too!

The flames also increase as time goes by and makes everything faster. Pick up an ice gem to slow things down.

Better yet, pick up a sun gem to makes things even hotter.

Bloodstones will heal some of your health.

I liked the concept of circling around enemies to defeat them, it requires some practice but it's a good feature. I just didn't understood why I was getting hurt while touching nothing. By the way, you should maybe use the new "Host on your game page" feature!

I like the graphics, although simple, they fit the theme well. The fireball looks a bit weird though and sometimes you take damage without really knowing why, I feel. Well done, though!

Graphics and music really helped to establish place & mood, tying together nicely with the theme. Nice!

Really liked the fire trail graphics and the snake-like gameplay

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. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
