A downloadable game for Windows

Throughout the world, there are many lost treasures, buried deep within hidden crypts, secret caverns, and long lost ruins.

Guide Renee, a junior treasure hunter, through a single series of catacombs. Retrieve the relic from within. And it wouldn't hurt to swipe any currency that might be along the way...

This is a short, one-level prototype that's exploring the possibility of continuing into a full game. A platformer heavily inspired by the classic Wario Land games on the Nintendo Game Boy.

This was made for GBJam 2016. As such, it's lacking a little in extra polish due to time restraints, but should generally convey the idea of the game.

Loved playing this. I have played it a couple times now. And I have convinced several friends to give it a try too.

I really hope you are still working on this. I understand it is still only a prototype. But if you proceed, I think you have a great idea here. The character is cute, the gameplay is relaxed and retro. And the levels are interesting.

If you continue work on this; here is my wishlist. :)

*A start menu.

*More levels (obviously.lol)

*Allow custom keybindings.

Other than that, keep it delightfully simple and I wish you the best!

Nice short game! :3 Really liked the "Wario Land"-style gameplay

A little in-game clue on the controls would have been helpful (I forgot to look them on the page xP)
