My little selling shop on Earth

by Bender - Competition Entry

Update : I added a bug fixes version. Also, it was posted after the deadline so it's not intended for evaluation purpose.
If you don't want to be pissed off and just enjoy the game, you should try this one.

Your spaceship crashed on an unknown planet called Earth and where inhabitants seems to live in The Middle Ages. There is kings, knights, princess and treasure hunters but they all appears to be cowards.
So your grandpa decided for you that you will explore dangerous dungeons on this planet in order to get loots and treasures and sell it in your brand new shop. Yes, you have a shop where people comes, buy a treasure and claim to every one that he has explored the dungeon, killed the monster and got the treasure ;)
With enough money you will be able to repair your ship and get the hell out of this damn planet !

Left & Right Arrow : Move
Up Arrow & Space : Jump (when jump available)
Down Arrow & X : Interact
C & Z : shoot (when gun available)

There are some bugs on the original version :
- If your character don't appear on the screen after changing area, I'm sorry but you're screwed... this is a shitty tips but try to avoid returning to already visited area (when you don't have to).
- You can't re-enter your own shop... (anyway you don't have to do that to finish the game)

If you notice any bug please let me know in the comments !

Short & sweet, and great graphics - nice job! Found a bug where when I tried to re-enter the building I was originally in, it took me to the inn.

Pretty pixel art, interesting abilities. Ran into the abovementioned bug just when I was going back to complete the game :/

It's good ! Nice graphics, pity there are no sounds. I didn't encounter any bugs.

Again, love the background. I hit that bug too though :(

I got the 'DISAPPEAR' glitch after getting the gold and trying to head back. Couldn't complete the game. :(

With some sound and bug fixes this would be pretty solid, although the lizard men are a bit of a pushover and could use some OOMPH.

mini metroidvania! I really like the level design, and the sky art is particularly pretty. Interpretation of the theme was very fun.

Impressive content for 48 hours! Didn't deliver on the theme twist IMHO, as you still end up collecting stuff for yourself, but...polished gameplay, great art, well balanced with interesting level designs. Top notch!

Best killscreen ever!

At first I was like, is this game done? And then I was like, holy crap this game is deep.

Very nice collection of player abilities, I especially liked the wall-jump.

Good progression, well-rounded package, audio would have scored this perfectly.

Nicely done ! Ended up being much longer than I thought it would be. Good job, but would be awesome with some music & sounds !

If you die and take the same gold chest twice you "win" the game faster.

This game is not very thematic. .
However the graphics are astonishing.
The gameplay is a lot like robot wants kitty..
And the levels are pretty easy..
It was lots of fun thanks to the simple gameplay and pretty graphics that are consistent and attractive.
I think adding a few levels with more challange can make this a classic..

Very neat game. The graphics are awesome, the idea also nice.
The shop entrance takes you to the Inn, but since you don't need to reenter for solving the game all's fine.
You can't return from the gold chest to the left side alive?

this is nifty. I expecially like the lo-fi story-approach (ship in background first, then exposition)

Looks like the story is almost not related with the game:S. You start with a ship talking about selling stuff to humans but then it is a platform game where you have to do typical platform games stuff. Game type is soooooooooooooooo used, I am not saying I don't like it but I can't think about good score at Innovation at all :(

Also, can't understand how the game is relate with the theme.

However, I liked the game, it was easy to control and has great looking graphics, sad it doesn't have any sounds nor music.

Nice game and good luck with the compo.

Very pretty entry, the graphics are amazing! Well done!

I got stuck just after picking up the wall jump, because I couldn't use it to get out... maybe an easier first test of wall jumping abilities would be more appropriate?
