Shrimp - 23 - 48 Hour Compo Entry
An entry for LD48 #22.
You are a little boy alone in a scary place. Find the green light to the next level before the darkness gets you! Use matches to keep the shrimp at bay.
No time for a title screen, I'm afraid. Push "z" to light a match, "x" to count matches (you should hear a tone for each match you have). Works on Android if you have a keypad.
Sound effects from sfxr.
Base library is enchant.js from Ubiquitous Entertainment, which I re-investigated thanks to the prompting of Kazuhiro Sera (@seratch).
Art, story, and code by Paul McCann (@polm23).
Match counting idea from a recent Auntie Pixelante article.
Maze generation heavily guided by Wikipedia article on same.
Idea of giant shrimp in darkness inspired by the light shining through the fronds of a palm tree on a stormy night as I was half asleep.
Idea of world destroyed by horrible mind-reading shrimp in meteorite based on true events.
Thanks for playing! This is the first LD I've finished a game for and I'm looking forward to the next one. -POLM
