GMTK Game Jam 2019: One Action Heroes

“One Action Heroes” by Tapehead Games (Sebastian Landinger & Waldemar Umaniz).

“Our brave heroes must move through a winding dungeon. Traps doors small alleys in front of them! Every single one of the heroes can perform [only one] movement. […] [Can] they find their way through tricky puzzles with friendship[,] helpfulness and the will to combine their powers?”

In a charming manner, “One Action Heroes” presents a neat take on the traditional “Sokoban” gameplay and puzzle design. You will be introduced to three different characters, who all have their own special abilities: One figure can only move to the left or the right, another just upwards and downwards, while the last one cannot move at all, but is able to combine characters and items alike into one entity.

You will have to think carefully about your moves, so that all your characters actually work together as a team. It is not enough that just one of them reaches the level exit, all of them have to; either separate from each other or as an united block. In nineteen levels you will be trained to solve puzzles cooperatively as you discover the advantages of the unique treats of your team members. Also I must say that the music is oddly catchy and at the same time very fitting to the whole dungeon setting. All in all, “One Action Heroes” is a sweet little puzzle game you should definitely give a try. [PLAY]
