Ludum Dare 42: Treasure Chest #79

What’s a “Treasure Chest” article?

It’s a short text and video compilation of three to five small jam games we really liked for some reason (like core concept, artwork, effort etc.).

A charmingly designed puzzle adventure in a desert ruin awaits you here. Here mummies come back to life again and the walls drift towards you, so that you might plummet into the depths. And oh, the ground under your feet is not that solid either… Especially witty spelunkers among you can also try to collect all the coins in the shortest time possible. I wish you success!

The game concept is similar to the already from us recommended “.S”, but with an enormous difference: Here you do not have to eat anything to make your character grow, because absolutely every new move makes it longer. Use your length to create new passages to each level exit and try not to fall into the sharp spikes.

In this game you control your cowboy character only indirectly. By collecting carrots from the roadside and putting them in your inventory, you can speed up the horse you ride on. If you throw the carrots out of the inventory, it will slow down, of course. But make sure that you still have enough space for various weapons to catch all the crooks from the Wild West. A clever puzzle ‘shooter’ with a pretty innovative as well as funny premise.
