Untitled Tower Game - chuchino - Jam Entry
A tower climbing action game.
Initially, I had a bare-bones description here that deferred to the readme, but now that I have the time I will write a bit about the game. The game's "gimmick" (and the connection to the theme) is that the control scheme gets significantly more complex as you get further and players have to adapt to the new controls. This gimmick doesn't really show itself until maybe stage 8 or 10 or so, and the stages are rather difficult due to hastily done level design, so for most people it will just seem like a generic platformer that has nothing to do with the theme. And even for players who got to the later stages, the connection to the theme probably wouldn't have been obvious without this explanation. So I expect low marks for "Theme", but I had fun making the game.
About the two download links: I noticed a stupid bug right after the submission deadline passed, so I fixed it. The bug was easy to fix but fairly serious (the "infinite" lives on some difficulty settings were not actually infinite) so I think it's okay to rate the late version. However, the original version that was submitted before the deadline is still available by clicking the "on-time" link just in case.
