Created as part of the Mini LD #34 competion over a few hours last weekend, the aim of which was to create a game confined to certain bizarre aspect ratios. In this case, 18x64. However, to get it accepted on Newgrounds I upscaled it 8x. You can play the original at lminild.html

Collect all the gold in the shortest time possible (personal best is 133 seconds)
Up/left/right to move and jump
K to restart the level
SPACE show the map and gold remaining
Press any key to start

UPDATE: made a few changes based on the great feedback so far...
-Added medals! I think...Someone please let me know if it works
-Added WASD controls
-Tweaked the level design a little to prevent the player getting stuck in a few areas
-Hold down the spacebar to see how much gold you have left to collect
-Working on a map...Stay tuned!

-Map is now done, just hold down the space bar to see where you are and where the gold is
-Added high scores!

In case anyone needs help or wants a better time score, I got the map by putting all the screens together:
Good luck.

(yep, I have way too much freetime)

I'm not trying to hate or anything but I didn't really like this. I saw it after I beat Bertie the Butcher and thought Cool another pixel game. It was but it wasn't what I expected. You couldve done better :/

A great and small game that functions well.
It's not very in-depth, but LD games rarely are.

My only complaint is that the medals aren't all-inclusive. If you beat the game in 140 seconds, like I did, for example, you have to also beat it in over 200 seconds, and between 150-200 seconds to get the less skillful medals. This seems like bad achievement design to me.

As for getting under 110...gah. Can't do it.

This was a pretty fun speedrunner.
Short enough to have me motivated to play it several times and yet complicated enough to keep it challenging. Changing the screens was sometimes a bit glitchy and yeah the enviroment was rather plain. But those are minor issues in a speedrunner - so good job!
