StompKid's Nightmare Land

by ChrisAntem - Jam Entry

Crush your nightmares ! In that room where you played, you slept, you laughed... Can be transformed in the darkness and look creepier than ever, one goal, crush your nightmares before they kill you.

Use the left and right arrow keys to move and up arrow to jump.
You need to push the boxes through the levels to crush your nightmares : from the top or against the edges. But be careful, if they touch you, you will lose a life.
When a box arrives at the bottom left of the level, it opens : you can score points or get a weapon to help your progression. Press Ctrl to use it.
If you are at the bottom of the level, jump on your bed to go back to top, and press down arrow key on a little plank to climb down.

Sweet dreams !

Good concept and I liked the mood of your game. However, I found it a bit hard, didn't manage to pass the first level. The big broccoli was arriving too early and I always had still one slime to kill, but didn't manage to do it :'(

Nice graphics and music though !

pretty cool. i like the art and music a lot, but the game is kinda unnecessarily difficult. i only barely passed the first level, and the second was identical besides another enemy so i didn't try. i also don't know how i'm supposed to attack or shoot? ctrl didn't work, unless you find weapons in later areas
nice entry regardless!

Really hard gameplay. I dig the puzzle aspect of killing enemies but im a nub. I loved the spelunky ghost broccoli :D

Thanks for reviews, we work on a post-mortem version with a broccoli under xanax, better ennemies behaviors and a text help.

Torcado, all you need is to crush ennemis with the boxes. If a box is brought on the bottom left of the level, you earn points or a weapon (which you can use with Ctrl).

Pretty simple but quite hard game. Liked the art-style!

Good idea, like my first one (something like snowbros or bubble bobble). Good graphics and music is coherent. Well done!!!

Thanks you all for the compliments about the game, we've noticed the problem on it, and we'll submit later after the vote a post mortem like Chris said yesterday !

Neat concept, with really nice art at sound. I think the difficulty seems pretty high. Everything would be a lot more fun and solid if gameplay could be polished a little in terms of time, movement, and difficulty.

As others have said, great idea and presentation, but man is it hard.

Quite a good game! But really hard though! The movement was somewhat annoying, don't take it in a bad way.

Graphics look really good, but the game was really difficult. Hope you make a post on the ld-site for the post-jam version :)

Nice work on the visuals and music! Both complete each other and set up a really nice mood! :)

Gameplay it's really good, but it feels too challenging though :P, killing the blobs was kinda hard, before the ghoul came floating around, if you can balance this, it'll be more accessible, I believe.

Cheers, Great work! :)

Looks and sounds great, but I'm in agreement with most others it seems; too hard. The giant blob kills me every time :(
