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

Ok I like the game and its repetitiveness, but why z to jump? also i wish i was able to change directions because the bats are really easy to miss and you cant save it once they pass you :(

neat but too repetitive flames up my carpel tunnel like crazy so about 3k is about as far as i can go

Simple but challenging. I like it. The bats are a bit annoying and speedy, but other than that, perfect!

This reminds of that one mission in New Vegas where you have to protect President Kimball lol.
Fun game, bats are just REALLY annoying to try and kill

Nice, simple game that's challenging. I made a negative score, just for fun, but instead of -6, it submitted 99,994. Maybe a fix for that?
