Meta Game Jam: Daisy Dangerous

“Daisy Dangerous” by securas.

“[An action puzzle] platformer[.] Daisy is [on] a quest to rid the land of the invading alien sentient machines. Guide her across the multiple traps laid out along the way to reach the machine overlord, defeat it and end the invasion.”

“Daisy Dangerous” is a lovely parody game of “Rick Dangerous”, a puzzle platformer made in 1989. Within its spirit, the game gives the players some very challenging levels and sometimes comments about the level design and its own roots on the meta level. For example, in one passage a boulder falls down, so Daisy must run like hell, just like in the old “Indiana Jones” movie “Raiders of the Lost Ark”. This is a wink to “Rick Dangerous” itself, which gave its character not just the very same costume as Indiana Jones, but it even copied the same scene. Another example is the limit of six bullets and six grenades, which was taken from the original game. >>PLAY
