Treasure temple trouble

by IcyLava - Compo Entry

Go into a temple/ancient ruins/whatever-it-is and find the treasure room!
(Eh? Get it? It's the ONE ROOM that matters to you!.. ok, well I tried)

F - toggle fullscreen
arrow keys or WASD - move
up, w, space or x - jump (or later - wall jump)
(later) double tap left or right - air dash

For Mac and Linux:
First you must download LÖVE - - then you should be able to launch the .love file with it.

The .love file is a zip file that contains source code and assets.

Alright, so this was seriously cool! Congrats! I've died 30 times, but finally managed to find the treasure. :)

I went further bunk rooms with lipami (hate spikes). I like the animations and sounds of the hero.

very pleasant graphics and animation. Control requires adaptation

I've found the treasure and couldn't go anywhere, is it right? 61 deaths cause of hard way to dash the wall. Thank you for the game

I'm very bad at plattforming :-P. Good entry, the take on the theme is a bit lacky i fear.

i really like the animation of the character and the difficulty. It's a good job for so little time. I find the doble jump difficult, but maybe my fault.

Beat it in 44 deaths :) Had fun! Really nice game, super polished for a compo entry. I didn't love the controls too much - the special moves were really difficult to perform accurately but probably after more gameplay I would adjust :) One of two best games I played so far!

Thank you for the feedback everyone! I did realize after making it that dashing is really finicky and should just be bound to a button, good to know that people think so too. And yes, @ISG, after you reach the treasure you can't go anywhere else, it's just too shiny and attractive :)

Great game. I died 36 times before winning. In fact, after finding the ability to dash in air I was wondering where to go so I went backward and died like 10 times before finding I just had to continue forward...

46 deaths to the end. I really like it! The level is well though out, the character is funny, nicely animated and also the sounds are good.
Cool, the only thing I can really complain about is the wall-jump mechanic, I don't really get the controls and find it difficult to wall-jump. But of course I was able to complete the game ;)

It was scary to launch this .exe file :D
Game is good, like Super meat boy meets Metroid. I had fun, when played =)

It was a great game for the time limit I think, it really didn't use a single room though.

The game was very reminiscent of VVVVVV, which I enjoyed. I had a good time with this game, but the wall-jump was a tad unpredictible. Great game!

Great work here! Man I died a lot, and while it seems that there's just a tiny bit more work needed on controllability, I gave it a 5 fun... I totally appreciated that you doubled down on making content for this game, with a full-on maneuvering puzzles Metroidvania flow. Super-refreshing and great work overall!

Great game, the animation was very good and the graphics weren't that bad either.

I'm not very good at these kinds of games (especially once you start getting into wall jumping), but this is well done. Nice simple graphics (character blobiness is nice), good sound effects. Not sure how it fits with the theme though, since it's kind of the opposite of one room ;-)

34 deaths before beating the game, it was fun, the controls felt good, which is one thing I'm seeking inspiration for myself, so that's good :)
