Unlucky TikTak

by LinkoVitch - Compo Entry

You control our hapless adventurer (from the land of TikTak ;) ), who has happened to fall
into some weird dungeon room. Having snagged a few keys, the doors around the outside can
be opened, but their exit seems a bit odd...

Alas this looks to be the end of our hero, the room seems to be haunted by TikTakkiens from
years gone past, they too are looking for a doorway out!


The whole game is designed (*snort*) to use an X-Box pad thing.

A to Start

In Game:
Left Stick = Move
Right Stick = Face in that direction
A = use door if you are stood next to it and have key
B = To just give up and go back to the title
Right Shoulder, swing your trusty sword (plank)

Objective: - Don't die!

It's not really clear to me what I have to do here. Is there some secret pattern of the doors I have to figure out to quit the room? Also the static camera position makes it hard sometimes to hit enemies.

Apart from that, I liked the dark, haunted atmosphere

There is no escape, hence the ghosts of former unfortunates in the room, and hence why they are visiting doors at random still trying to find a way out.

The aim is simply to live as long as possible and score as high a score as possible. I had hoped to add in some additional enemies and a few other mechanics to break up gameplay a bit, but alas time ran out on me.

Thanks for looking, I probably spent far too much time on the atmosphere :D
