The Coward

by Adam Gould - Compo Entry

Being a town guard in a fantasy world isn't fun. Someone asks for your help, and before you know it some eldritch abomination is wearing your spleen as a scarf.

Captain Christopher C. Chesterworth IV knows this.

As Captain Chesterworth, it is your job to avoid everything. Just survive until the weekend.

Use the arrows or WASD to move.

Charming little game. Friday was the only level that gave me a bit of trouble, but I cracked it eventually.

I will say the music is a little misfitting, but it's a nice composition anyway so it's still good.

This was made is 48 hours? Everything? Geez.
This has been my favourite game so far. It was insanely fun. I kept wanting to continue playing it. The sounds and music fit wonderfully and the jokes actually had me laughing.
Wonderful game.

Friday was hard, the game was pretty fun. I really felt the desperation of that guard.

The idea behind this game is very cute, and the gameplay is simple but challenging.

I don't really like it.
It's a little boring and the graphics are pretty annoying SOMETIMES.
But is very difficult and interesting.

What a fun game to play. The gameplay was nice with good humor. I swear to god I saw a guy who said someone stole his HOUSE! You should later add some upgrades and stuff like that. I really liked the gameplay. The graphics and audio went so well too. Overall a nice game to play. Keep it up!

really nice funny game. very good work adding the humor and description on death. Though simple in idea, the execution was good and each challenge was nicely done in progressive difficulty.

Simple and fun, full of humor! :D Kinda felt that the music gave it a casual vibe. :)

The concept is really nice and fun, and it gets pretty challenging after portals start to appear. Some of the villager's quotes are really nice! (Null Reference!!! :P)

Well thought game! :) Congrats!
