'Curse of the Sock'

Share Collapse

Author Comments

Oh no! Cherp's lucky socks have been possessed by a wandering ghost! Now he's been turned into a skeleton and must seek them in a maddening quest!


Arrow keys / WASD - Move, climb up ladders, down to duck, up to enter doors.

Z / K - Jump

X / L- Attack

P/ENTER - Pause

M - Mute/unmute

F - Toggle fullscreen

This game also supports gamepad controls (provided it has a D-pad).

A few small Tips!

-Press Down+Jump to jump-off platforms (the thin ones).

-A few enemy projectiles (such as rocks) can be intercepted with a sword hit.

-While climbing a ladder, press Jump to drop down.

-When an enemy throws projectiles at you, it's usually better to dodge them first before attacking.

I took on the challenge of making a small game during the last couple of weeks from October, and here it is! It's a sidescrolling adventure inspired by the old platforming games on the NES, mostly the Castlevania trilogy. I wanted to make something simple gameplay-wise so all you have is your jump and a Melee weapon. Good luck!

I'm labeling this one as a demo as it could evolve into a larger project if the response is good. I had other features in mind such as other abilities so feedback is more than welcome.

i found a easter egg there is a room with a picture of dinomelt ducks and llama vs llama characters
does this mean they are all in the same universe?

got the big ghost but its a too short game

its too good to be awsome

great game, liked the final boss, finally got the hang of 1st phase... and then the ghost used lsd and went off the rails. 2nd phase s lil too aggressive but other than that, i loved it! (the game)
