by herofresh - Jam Entry

A warrior has to defeat 100 enemies before he is able to face the epic end-boss.
The gameplay consists of a reaction based button combo system. Each player starts with the first combination which is 3 buttons long but is sure to get longer the farther you progress. Your goal is to be quicker than the NPC. In case you mess up you have to start from the beginning of the combo and once the NPC is done there is only little time left to finish the combo in order to execute your block and get another chance at redeeming yourself with a shorter combo.
This game is a hard and demanding arcade title.

BTW Sorry 4 Setup and unsexy installer.
.Net Framework is required

We are aware of the game crashing on some PCs, we are sorry but we won't be able to fix it now due to lack of sleep and the fact that this was our first game.
Sorry again.
If somebody knows how to Publish a Game correctly on Monogame we would appreciate it.

We recommend a Xbox360 Controller

Unsexy isn't accurate, it's unreadable if you don't speak german. Fix that.

Putting a German installer in your game? That's a bit unfair for people who don't speak German. Also the button prompts are too small.

I do like your graphics style and audio though. :)

(Haven't rated the game, so don't worry)
I hate installers for LD games, as I have to go through and uninstall them all afterwards, which is a pain.
Like I said, I haven't rated, maybe make an executable next time? (I didn't like that the installer was in german, it's harder to tell what I might actually be installing.)

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.
