Made for Ludum Dare 46: "keep it Alive"

This is my first ever submission to a Ludum Dare game-jam (or any jam) so it may be a bit rusty.


Move / Arrow Keys

Attack / X

Jump / Z

Enter / Pause


Side note: this pixels may look disproportionate, but the problem is fixed in fullscreen (the 2-box icon next to the game)

Update 1.0.1

Fixed a bug where peasants would not spawn on subsequent play-throughs

Update 1.1

Added medals and scoreboard functionality

pretty fun

Cool game

Kind of like a defence game with some fun sprite action I had let the king down, A fun sprite related game very unique in the way that the sprites respond well with the game itself and you can't go wrong on some nice sprite like games you make it your own and unique on top of that you really gave the sprites a mind of there own and some pretty fun action on top of it all so for me this was an awesome sprite element of a game here and I was most impressed with the detail of it all


I got the highest guard, but I dont know what the othe secret medal is, anyway, great game, I got 1324, I think.

fun little game

Pretty good for a simple game.

I just wish you could change direction, sinceis really easy to miss those pesky bats. Also,more enemy variation would be nice
