Alphabeat 'em Up

by larb - Mini LD 49 Entry

A simple beat 'em up with alphabet characters.

There's a few simple combos. Try holding right or left with attack to push enemies around. Also, hold attack to perform a slam.

You can dash by double tapping right and left.

Player 1 controls: WASD, with F and G for jump and attack.(Alternate keys V and B for jump and attack.)

Player 2 controls: Arrows, with Ins and Del for jump and attack. (Alternate keys , and . for jump and attack)

No player 3 or player 4 for now. I wanted to add gamepad support, but I had to drop that for time. (I also had to drop prettier graphics.) I'll try to add gamepad support soon.

Update: Patched in gamepad support for Chrome browser. Player 3 should be controllable with a gamepad in Chrome. (Maybe player 4 can be controlled with a second gamepad, but I don't have a second controller to test with.)

I could only try singleplayer,but I like the idea: alphabeAt :) .
Sometimes my character stopped moving and i didnt see why? Was that some sort of cooldown phase?
