GBJAM 6: Spellthief

“Spellthief” by Zack Keys.

“A puzzle platformer where you must use your acrobatic thievery skills and trusty grappling hook to navigate compact, dangerous dungeons. Can you make it to the end of all seven rooms with a perfect record?”


This game just screams for ambitious speedrunners! If you want to achieve a perfect run here, you have to master a lot of different things: You will have to jump off the walls at the right moment so you won’t to fall into the spikes, you have to be able to use the grappling hook in a majestical way to cross wider distances and at the end of each level you must hammer three correct arrow combinations in a row into your keyboard at lightning speed so that you can break up the treasure chest.

Whenever you play through a level, you can earn up to three badges. There would be the “Breaker” achievement for example. This one you’ll get if you are able to open the chest immediately on the first try. The second badge called “Immortal” you get if you did not die at all. And those of you who have collected all the coins in a level, will have the pleasure to call themselves a “Collector”. Only those who get all of the badges at the end of the seven levels will make a perfect run. Curious? Then plunge into the adventure! >>PLAY
