So here's what I've been doing for the past three days:

I love Ludum Dare, and I love Construct 2!

Tell me what you guys think, and also, if you can think of any way to make troll selection more intuitive, I'm all ears.

wow, very good, simple but really cool looking

i think a way to make it more intuitive without break the "ah - ha" moment of discovery and letting the player figure out things without hold hands; you could tell a simple tale about trolls at the beginning so the player know that trolls turn into rocks in contact with sun light; then you put the sun light in the first plane to pop out from the background, this way you could remove that "sun mark"... unless you want a more obvious approach

This looks really gorgeous! The gameplay itself is somewhat bumpy yet, but 3 days isn't really enough time to make a well-polished game. Are you gonna continue the development?

Yes I'm working on it now.
I can't get over the fact that the queen doesn't *always* and consistently clear the obstacle when she jumps.

This breaks my game for the time being, so I'm searching for solutions.

I like the concept and that pixel art is beautiful. Great stuff! As for making selection more intuitive, the only thing I can think of is an on-screen prompt before the first one is selected. The keybindings themselves seem fine, though it'd be nice if WASD also worked.

@christina,

love the game, and agree with @AhrEch, that having the select icon automagically appear, after the queen has made her demands known, would be good.

glad you did not spoon feed. i enjoyed finding out from failure, how to succeed.

that's how we all should be taught in school.

well done.

This looks amazing! It plays well too... I really enjoy these types of games, I'd really like to see it once you've added more :P Keep up the good work!


Kind Regards
