Bloodthirsty

by lucentbeam - Mini LD 60 Entry

My MiniLD 60 Entry based on the theme "10 Seconds!"

In this top down beat 'em up, you are out to find (and kill) the vampire that cursed you. But in order to survive, you'll need blood... Every 10 seconds or so. Fight your way past thralls, and make your way down to the vampire's layer.

Controls:

--------XBox Controller (recommended):
Move: Left stick
Dash/Throw: Right stick
Punch: Right bumper
Grab/Bite: Left bumper
Drink Blood on Ground: A
----------------------

--------Keyboard/Mouse
Move: W/A/S/D (sorry Europeans...)
Dash/Throw: Right click
Punch: Left click
Grab/Bite: Middle click
Drink Blood on Ground: Space
----------------------

Some notes: I originally wanted to make this as a roguelike with RPG elements (like leveling and skills) but that proved to be a little too ambitious. I'm not very satisfied with the control scheme, so it will probably be a bit too challenging for most. I can beat it, but.. Y'know. Anyway, sorry if it's too difficult :)

Tools:
Language/Library: Python/pygame
Graphics: SDL / The GIMP
Sounds: Audacity
Music: Linux Multimedia Studio (LMMS)

The idea is good. Unfortunately, I think you're right, it's too difficult.

Awesome idea. Couldn't finish. There was 2 problems i guess. Punches reaally hit from fists. Idk maybe it was controls. Like you punch to forward. The way you are walking into. With controller it is probably not a problem. Whatevs cool game. Please make it into something in time!

I dont have a middle mouse button (laptop) and I found that the punches really sucked compared to the dash, but good start. I included your game in part 1 of my MiniLD #60 compilation video series, if you would like to check it out :) https://youtu.be/gyHff6Xsbg8
