Saw per Lot

by klianc09 - Mini LD 62 Entry

This is a barebones prototype of a platformer where you use a giant sawblade to move/attack/shield. Use it to climb up walls, shoot at enemies, jump over obstacles and shield yourself from bullets.

Controller is recommended.

Default Keyboard controls: (can be reconfigured)
WASD: move around
IJKL: aim/move sawblade
Left-Shift: charge up jump/shot
Press R to restart the current level when dying

For this MiniLD, I did what I'm best at:
Drawing programmer art and creating buggy physics.

Sound/Music is missing.
There is nothing after beating the second boss.
Shoutout to Dawnbringer's 16 color palette.

v0.1.1: now shows retry button on gameover screen

This game is absolutely amazing. It is a very original idea and it is very well implemented. Really fun.

I REALLY enjoyed this one. The idea is great and with a controller it's super fun. I made it to the second boss (after many attempts) and didn't want to redo everything when I died. Great fun.

Thank you guys.
@morrilet: I really should tell the player in-game, that you can press R to restart the current level. Sorry for that.

Sweet idea, super fun to play. I included it in part 1 of my Mini LD #62 compilation video series, if you’d like to check it out!

Really cool game. I really like the mechanic, and the (first?) boss fight is well designed. Controller really helps.
