Punchies

by Sos - Compo Entry

Punchies is like munchies, but with punching. You just can't stop!

Goal:
This game is about punching stuff. Punch stuff. Make sure you have fun in the process.

Controls:
Punch

If you get stuck, press [R] to restart level. I promise it will be fun the second time round too!

Plot:
Pirate mate Dale has been cast ashore by his crew mates, whose faces he would not stop punching. Help him find stuff to punch on this seemingly desolate island! And perhaps there's treasure or dragon or whatever.

Hint:
If you get lost, just wait for a moment ;)

I love the art and the strange music. The game feel is pretty good, even the clumsy platforming. The ending is a great surprise to. Could use some more ways to lose.

I don't think this could have ended any better than it did. Had an absolute blast through the whole way, though I admittedly got slightly frustrated when the platforming got a little sloppy.

Still, somehow running fast enough that you're tripping over your own two feet felt appropriate somehow...

I like your secrets and all your rooms. But... Rooms. The theme is one room, not multiple rooms. The game is pretty fun though.

I watched you work on this for a bit on Twitch. I enjoyed the music. The controls made it difficult to be precise with jumps which in turn made a few areas frustrating. Not sure how well it fits the theme, but it was fun to play. I enjoyed the unexpected ending as well.

Pretty cool, reminds me of Boulder Dash, what's with all the stone blocks falling on player's head :)
Physics does create some strange situations though, like a stone getting stuck between a up-down moving mob and ceiling.
But overall the gameplay is quite smooth, good job on this!

The controls were a bit wonky, audio and graphics quite amazing for a compo game!

Haha, great music and atmoshphere, the diamonds sometimes glitch themselves into the ground, other than that great!

hehe that was fun, only things that were a bit sad was I lost diamonds from them falling under the ground and it was a bit irritating that he fell without falling quite often, when just walking O.o the music is great though ;D was having wide smile on my face while playing it :D
