The X of Y

by Homletmoo - Compo Entry

Play the small knight guy in my latest interactive online experience that could just about be classed as a game, if only it had the ability to attack enemies. Ah well, I only had 48 hours...

Use the arrow keys (or WASD, I don't care) to control your hero, as he fumbles to find the keys to his dungeon. Avoid the evil Disciples of Throrpnax as they thlyly attempt to thwart your planth. Boogie to the awesome soundtrack (singular). Get bored and quit. Remember to rate and comment :D

I didn't found out how to fight/avoid enemies. Really liked the expanding map and the sturdy controls! Stable platform, very good! :)

Ah this was fun/silly, it's a pity you could get more done. The names were rather amusing XD

Mostly breaks down to walking a lot. I assume there is no way to fight back, only move, making the gameplay rather bland.
However, I did enjoy the random generation and the names. These are the saving grace of the game, making you want to play again, just to see what you get.
The art and music were also nice.

I'm not sure if I'm missing something or not. I love the look and the music, but can't figure out attacking. I escaped!

Kind of an odd game. I liked it a lot, and everything was smooth and worked well. If there was a way to attack, I couldn't find it, so I instead relied on leading the enemies out of my way, then running away as fast as possible. The music was odd at first, but it grew on me.

Humourous, fantastic music and well implemented game. How do you continue after collecting all the keys?

Good dungeon generation! I like it!

Love the room names!

Couldn't really get very far.

Like the graphics, feel, and story. Would like to see it more filled out.

Can't attack?

I was like "Haaaa! What do I have to do?!". Anyway, I really love the graphics. The music is good but a bit off topic. 4/5.

Super slick! Love that piano too lol. Great work!

Yay, I escaped! \o/ Fun, even if you can't attack yet. I enjoyed the music, it adds some adrenaline to the game, but I kinda get the feeling it doesn't fit with the graphics style.

Loved the randomly generated place names, and the gameplay felt quite smooth. Shame you didn't get the time to implement combat.

Good game and funny room names.

Dec 8, 2014 @ 5:43pm

The graphics are just delightful! Gameplay could use a bit more work, there's no way to fight yet, right?

Attack might be missing due to time constraints, but I think this is proof we need a dungeon parkour roguelike.

Its the little touches that make this game good. I love the attention to the detail of the room names and also the audio track is great. I did actually enjoy evading all the monsters so it was good fun :)

I died the first time but escaped the second. I liked the music and seeing the map revealed as I moved. Sometimes the enemies blocked my tunnel so I took automatic damage. I'm glad I played it.

Very interesting game I just wish it had been finished more. Also I suggest allowing the player to move a little faster.

The room titles were hilarious and the music was sublime. I notices some enemies would just sort of wiggle in place and dance all over the screen if I got far away, which was pretty funny

Very nice game, too bad you couldn't finish it! I love the graphics and dungeon generation, the text description are funny and set an "adventure" mood for the overall game. Oh, and that catchy tune is awesome! Kudos! :)

The procedural generation was really neat. Has potential, it's unfortunate you didn't finish it.
