My entry for the GBJAM 7, in 2019. This game is mainly oriented for speedruns.

PLAGUE is heavily inspired on Gargoyle's Quest for the original Gameboy. It's a platformer where you can control a plague doctor, throwing explosive potions and dashing mid-air.

Known issues:
if you start a dash exactly 1 pixel away from a platform the dashbar can't tell if you're dashing or jumping and you get in a limitless dash. The best way to revert this is to return to the original platform where you dashed.
Originally it was intended for the player to have more than 1 hitpoint but the state machine was not robust enough to get that working with other mechanics, but the levels are short enough to play again when you die.

Not too hard but not too easy, wish it could have more levels but still a pretty cool game!

Hey! Thanks for playing it (:

It was designed short for the gamejam I used it as an entry, but people seem to be expecting more regardless. I'm considering on expanding and upgrading the project in the next few months! Not only a few more levels, but some more variety in the gameplay as well.

Cheers!
