Hello there,

This is another little game that I made.

Like so many others, after playing Spelunky I got interested in random level generation and this game is sort of the result of that interest. The level generation here is nothing like the way it's done in Spelunky though, but I still think it's quite fun to play.

All music for the game I found here on the Newgrounds Audio Portal, the artists are credited in the bar to the left, you should really check out their other submissions they have a lot of great chiptune/retro stuff.

-

Also, feel free to PM me here or email mrnowind at gmail with any bugs you might find in the game and I'll try to fix them as soon as possible.

The controls are in-game so give it a try and I hope you'll enjoy it,

**EDIT**
I updated the game to fix some bugs. Special items in shops are now significantly cheaper and shops appear more frequently.
I also noticed that my game is on the frontpage! Thanks to whoever made that happen.

**EDIT 2**
tweaked some things here and there, some levels should be a bit easier now.

**EDIT 3, PLEASE READ**
Okay, the crosses now create an invisible force field that repel ghosts, only the last cross you placed does this though. The system that determines which and what amount of items you get is now more friendly; bags are far more likely to contain bombs and as is it more likely to get 3 hp instead of 1 from a health potion. And finally I tweaked the level generator so the diary page should be easier to get to.
The game is now version 0.99, and as far as gameplay and level design goes I won't change it anymore. I'm going to add some particles or something to indicate the force field that the crosses create but other than that I consider the game to be done (unless there's some gamebreaking bug or glitch that emerges from these recent changes I made).
Thanks a lot for all the feedback i received in reviews and through PM I really appreciate it!

Reviews


I would pay money for this game. in its current state the most I would personally pay is 10$ But that seems a bit much for some people.



Good atmospheric game, I really like how the cross works and the general feel. I was confused at first, because of the lack of explanation about controls and how items work, but I think you were trying to capture the NES era feel. I also don't like taking falling damage when my character can fly but it's your design choice so whatever. Also, I don't know if the High Score counter effectively works.
Anyway, the music and sound design is really good and the graphics are nice.

REALLY good game. Just a little hard



I somehow managed to became invincible when I got hit by a ghost going at high speeds when I throw a cross on top of it ( I think I also throw a bomb at it to, but I don't remember for sure). The character was also stuck facing the screen and was red the whole time too, but I was able to still move around at least. When I did finish the level, the character went back to normal again.

Besides that, the game is fun and I plan on playing it again later.



Geez now you tell us, I would never have figured that out. The ghosts look like angels so why would anyone expect a cross to repel them? When I first played this I assumed they were portable respawn points until I died the first time, than I spent until now thinking they were just "breadcrumbs" to help remember where you've been.
All in all MINDER (is it mind-er or men-der?) is decent throwback to the NES era but takes the horror game route that Nintendo never did.
