Hey, I missed your game during the GWJ playtesting stream but I caught up on it with the win announcement. Here’s the broadcast https://www.twitch.tv/videos/930457256 it starts around 00:10:00. Next time you participate I’ll gladly include your game!

Very good entry, the win is deserved. Clever idea, well polished game with a good soundtrack, which of course is highly important for this genre.

I like that the game progresses mechanic by mechanic in a form of a dynamic tutorial. I would have like more checkpoints and maybe a level selection or something.

I found something that looked like a bug during the playthrough, the ghost enemy would target two blocks away because my attack made him move away.

Anyway congratulations! Will you expand on this game?

Thanks for playing!!!

A lot of people asked me about checkpoints, but I think that would break the flow of a stage. I believe the bigger issue is that the game can be quite challenging and there isn't a lot of time for the player to really learn the mechanics before things start to get crazy. To fix this, I'm plan to make a few more stages and smooth the difficulty curve between them. 

The ghost highlight is indeed a bug, and I found another bug with the vases by watching your stream :P. I'll get them fixed in the next version. I'm hoping to do a small QoL/bugfix update and a larger one with more content.

Nice game! You can interrupt enemy spawns by standing on them as they are about to spawn. I am not sure if this is an intended mechanic, but it looks like it messes up the level where it teaches you to attack. I blocked a ghost from spawning and then defeated the other one, and the level would not progress.

Yeah, that's a bug!  The second level is quite bugged to be honest. I'll be releasing a bug fix patch later today.

This game is pretty fun, and looks very Polished!
The enemies were unique,
Somehow reminds me of a game called Crypt of the Necrodancer though i haven't played that yet.
Overall i really like the game.
