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. […] [C]an 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 special abilities: One figure can just move to the left or the right, another just upwards and downwards, while the last one can’t move at all, but combine characters and items alike into one.

You will have to think carefully about your moves, so that all your character actually work together as a team. It’s 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 19 levels you will be trained to solve puzzles cooperatively as you discover the advantages of the unique treats of your team members. And on a side note: The music is weirdly catchy and at the same time very fitting to the whole dungeon-like setting. All in all, “One Action Heroes” is a sweet little puzzle game you should give definitely a try. >>PLAY
