What's this about?

Goldoom is a game about one room filled with ancient traps - and the most valuable of treasures, of course!

- 5 different enemy types
- A greed mechanic : Will you take your treasures and leave, or risk your life to get 'em all?
- Some great tribal-electronic tunes

WASD or the Arrow Keys to move
Shift or Space bar to Dash (Dashing makes you invincible, so be sure to use it a lot!)


Coding : Sn4pi
Art and Sounds : Peringo
Music : Artverwandt ( )


Engine : Gamemaker Studio

Ahah ! I loved the experience !
The game design hasn't anything original, but the staging is brilliant and the music so epic !
I shook so violently when I died ! Ah ah :D

Interesting classic gameplay. Not as hard as someone says. Wanted to see more rooms!

This is a good game. Visuals are nice.
But there is a problem that no one seemed to notice yet: you can't die in this game, lol.

Also, you have some tiny graphical bugs: 1) the altar appears above projectiles and player, and 2) player sprite is displaced by a sub-pixel offsets, which makes it blurry.

Well done! ... for people that say its hard I agree ... but that's what makes it fun and the only reason you want to play again! ... Nice soundtrack, fun and fast paced gameplay makes this game really enjoyable:P

I enjoyed it. It's a bit annoying how the window seems to stick to the bottom of the screen, though.

Good audio. Simple, but consistent graphics, tight controls. You even got a little story and set-up in there! This was fun :]

Well done, but it's very hard!
Can't last for more than like 1 min.

One thing that would make it more interesting is online highscore, or at least a local highscore! :)

It's pretty hard but still a fun game. I couldn't get more than 3 before I died
