Jar! Jarl! Halla!

by JarJarlHalla - Jam Entry

After a great day of sailing and raiding, there's only one last thing to do: Chug down all the booze you can!
"Jar! Jarl! Halla!" is an arcade score attack in which you will have to keep giving alcohol to all the thirsty vikings while dodging attacks from the ones that have had one too many.
Keep them served or a fight might break out and ruin your tavern (again)!


Controls:
- Left and Right to get close to the tables
- Spacebar while close to a table to server a horn

So far, the Hall of Valhalla is one of the most interesting takes on the "One room" theme. The gameplay has a rhythm that feels sooooo good and the graphics are charming.

And the song is spot on.

Congratulations!

The graphics and audio to this game are great - Really unique art style and an original sound track.

The controls were a little irksome to get used to and I thought the spilled beer on the floor was supposed to be dodged.

Overall, pretty good

Very nice use of the theme, I really enjoyed it. It was actually pretty tough keeping the tables furthest from the bar happy. Good job!

Interesting, but you can win even without touch a single key.

Music in this game are very good, and as Palarus already said, it has a rhythm that feels very good. It gets very challenging at 15 run, taked me few minutes to get good at this game, btw my top score was 34 runs.

Cool sound and art style.

Very cool. I was a little nervous about all the instructions, but once I got rolling it was a lot simpler than I thought (and fun too).

I also like how the music changes! It keeps things from getting dull.
