Game Instructions

ARROW KEYS / WASD to move
SPACE to dig

ex: DOWN + SPACE = dig down

JUMP and TOUCH a wall to AUTOGRAB to it.
(no need to hold down any key to stick to wall)
You can DIG UP from GRAB if you have a wall above you.
(press UP - if in range wall will be targeted - while HOLDING UP press SPACE to dig)

Zombies are unkillable - don't waste your time.
They are STUNED for a short while after a HIT so you can SAFELY run PASS them.
If a zombie falls or hits a wall as a result of your hit, it will SLEEP for a longer period.

*there is a bug when sometimes SPACE doesn't work anymore. If you press UP briefly it will work again.

Graveyard Goldmine

Version 0.8a

by StefanSava
First published on 11th September, 2015

Mine all the gold before the sun goes down. More zombies spawn as it gets darker. Plan your way and make sure you have enough time to make it back alive.

May the best miner win!

This is the first game I ever completed solo. Any feedback greatly appreciated :)

    Yeah, nice game. This could even evolve into a nice zombie survival game in the same style.

    Very nice game! :) Fast and fun! IF you could improved something, it would be the "presentation" part (it lack some introduction, from my point of view), and controls (jumping is kind hard sometimes). Good job anyway! ;)

    Yeah, I think it's a bit too hard as well. I've already started refining the difficulty curve, I will have a better version on the next update :)

    @StefanSava, it's not really that the game is hard, but sometimes it seems like the player gets stuck without taking input correctly. Also, you should try adding the Y vector for wall grabbing, so if you grab too high, it will move you down to a hole in the wall that you may have been aiming for. Or you could make the jump height be controlled more by the jump sustain, so that the player can position themselves easily where they need to.

    Also, please make it so if up + left, right will make the player aim strait up, so that the player can easily dig above them. :) 5/5 though, best game.

    @KTML5 Oh wow, thanks for the feedback.

    Yeah, you are right about the input problems, I've solved a few of them yesterday.

    On the new version I updated the grab so when you are grabbing on to a wall and you were aiming for a hole in the wall, you can press DOWN and the character will fall for as long you are holding DOWN, that way you can kinda make your way into the hole by tapping DOWN. But I'm waiting for the jam to finish to update the game to the new version.

    When you say UP + LEFT/RIGHT, do you mean you want to dig straight UP from a jump?

    Thanks for your appreciation:)

    Sorry for taking so long to reply! I'm pleased to have been of some assistance! :) And I love this game. I'm sure you could definitely go places with this.

    Digging strait up from a jump would also be a nice option. Still loving this game though, I feel like you more than deserve what you won with it.

    @KTML5 Thanks! I'm going to be working on a new version in the next couple of weeks to add more depth to the game :) Thanks again for the kind words.
