Her Nightmare: GEM RPG

by Shoozes - Mini LD 54 Entry

My first submission to LD. Her Nightmare: GEM RPG.

Kill enemies by matching gems. Select two or more gems to make a match. Gems are used as resources to shoot, heal, and use spells. The enemy will shoot you from the right side of the screen, so you have to race to match gems quickly before they take you out. (I hope this is close enough to the race theme. haha) You will find yourself racing to match gems as the board begins to lock up.

- Blue gems will be deposited as magic, and your character will shoot automatically from the left side of the screen using the magic.
- Pink gems will match up and be deposited for health. You'll need it since the enemy will be on the right side of the screen shooting back.
- White gems add to your spell bar. Your spells will inflict direct damage to the enemy, or destroy a selected portion of the gem board.
- Red/Orange gems will be bomb type gems and they don't need a matching pair to work. You can just pop the gems by selecting it.
- Gold gems will be used for money after a fight for upgrades.
- Green gems (slime gems) are filler gems that get in the way.
- Rocks are also fillers and can only be destroyed by using a bomb gem.

My Tools:
- GameMaker Studio
- FL Studio 10
- MS Paint
- Old Assets
- I used extra time, some old graphics, 3 old songs.

Late submission. Took me 4 days to put together, but within 48 hours. I also used 3 archived songs and enemy/effect graphics from my personal assets folder. I wouldn't have made the deadline if the original LudumDare rules were in place. haha

Yeah, it's really addictive, I also played much more time that I thought (and I'll play more later XD). Nice game! Cute graphics and amazing musics! Thank you for sharing this Gem! :D

Sir/Madam this is most certainly not a race, but it is fantastic. Congratulations
