Thanks for the Play! sorry about the slightly confusing bits. Yes the game length doesn’t match well with a game jam playing schedule (seems to take most people 30-45 minutes to play through).

Great game!

Great game, i love the shoppy rock thing lol. My only feedback would be to add a short "god-mode" when you get hit so have you have a little time to get away from the enemy before you get hit again. without something like this you can easily get hit mutliple times by just one mistake and it feels a little unfai.

Keep up the great work.

Nice little dungeon game. I really enjoyed it. Though some sprites wheren't correctly important so they looks strange with the blur. Overall nice job!
